Is Rosie Headed to NBC?

TV Newser has a speculative piece that Rosie O'Donnell may be headed to NBC/MSNBC as part of a daytime/night-time deal that will allow the former co-host of The View to play nice during the day with a celebrity-focused show and then spew her liberal rants, ala Keith Olbermann, in the evenings. The following is the article inspired by FoxNews.com's Roger Friedman.

Rosie: Proud As A Peacock?

Johnny Dollar has the audio

"My guess is that she will get a daytime show on NBC with a package deal to do a night-time talk show on MSNBC."

"What she wants is a daytime show with a night-time show mixed in. The night-time show will be on MSNBC, and it will be a very liberal show, and during the morning she'll be the happy, friendly Rosie."

Friedman writes since O'Donnell left "The View" on May 25, the ABC talk-fest has lost over 400,000 viewers.
