Rosie O'Donnell Brewing New Daytime Talk Show


Rosie O'Donnell


The host who won 25 Daytime Emmy awards through 'The Rosie O'Donnell Show' is plotting a return with TV giants backing her up.

Rosie O'Donnell could be the new queen of daytime talk shows. The reigning Oprah Winfrey had previously announced that she's ending "The Oprah Winfrey Show" in 2011 to concentrate on OWN and it has just been reported that O'Donnell is re-teaming with a couple of old friends to formulate a new syndicated talk show.

Together with syndication veterans Dick Robertson and Scott Carlin, O'Donnell is planning to have the show launched in Fall 2011. Robertson and O'Donnell once worked together on "The Rosie O'Donnell Show" which lasted about six years on air and won a lot of Emmys. Robertson is now the advisor of Warner Bros. Domestic TV Distribution.

Meanwhile, Carlin was head of HBO Domestic Distribution who was responsible for the sale of "The Sopranos" and "Sex and the City". Carlin worked under Robertson for almost two decades before leaving the post in 1999. He was part of the team that launched "O'Donnell Show".

Rosie O'Donnell herself has won a truckload of Daytime Emmy Awards through the talk show. She snatched the Outstanding Talk Show award consecutively between 1998 to 2002. Four years after the show pulled down its curtain, she hopped on "The View" but quit due to internal feud in 2007 and was replaced by Whoopi Goldberg.
