Is Rosie Trying to Be the New Oprah?


It sure looks that way. The erstwhile host of the The View and prolific blogger has teamed up with "syndication veterans" Dick Robertson and Scott Carlin and plans to launch a new talk show in the fall of 2011, which just so happens to be the same time that The Oprah Winfrey Show is going off air. The former president of Warner Bros. domestic TV distribution, Robertson previously worked with O'Donnell on The Rosie O'Donnell Show, which ran for six years from 1996 to 2002. The show is already being pegged as the favorite to replace Oprah on ABC and in the hearts of women across the world.
