That blog might be all she's got left as Rosie's MSNBC talk show deal shits the bed

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.
