Looks like Rosie O'Donnell won't be facing off with fossilized Larry King after all. Rosie announced on her blog yesterday that talks to give her a prime-time show on MSNBC had fallen apart; saying the development was "just as well," Rosie wrote in her usual shorthand style: "poof/my career as a pundit is over/b4 it began." Take out "as a pundit" and yeah Rosie, you're just about spot on.
The bizarre deal with MSNBC would have placed Rosie in the coveted 9 PM slot against CNN's "Larry King Live" and Fox News Channel's "Hannity & Colmes." Fox News dominates prime-time ratings, CNN is second, and MSNBC is a distant third.
