OWN announced today it will cease production on Rosie O’Donnell’s daily talk show next week after five months on the air. The final episode will air March 30.
“I thank Rosie from the bottom of my heart for joining me on this journey,” said Oprah Winfrey in a statement. “As I have learned in the last 15 months, a new network launch is always a challenge and ratings grow over time as you continue to gather an audience. I’m grateful to Rosie and the dedicated Rosie Show team for giving it their all.”
The Rosie Show, which is taped in Oprah’s old Chicago studio, will tape its last installment March 20.
