She's Coming Baaack! Rosie to MSNBC?

11/5/2007 7:41 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rosie O'DonnellControversial talk show hostess Rosie O'Donnell is set to return to television, this time with her own show on MSNBC, sources on both sides of the talks tell the New York Times.

According to the Times, one idea being thrown around has the former "View" babe filling the 9:00 PM slot -- directly against "Larry King Live" on CNN and "Hannity & Colmes" on FOX News. Dan Abrams currently has that slot for MSNBC, but his ratings have been less than spectacular.

NBC execs were quick to caution that no deal was in place at this time. Calls to Rosie's rep were not immediately returned.

I guess MSNBC doesn't care anymore about ratings. Because less people will watch once she comes on board. Oh well!

That dinosaur named Larry King is still so far superior to Rosie as a TV personality, how could they really compete?

Doesn't Rosie have a crap load of money? Doesn't she have a blog and publishing deal available to dish out her opinons with? She needs to leave TV alone.

Larry King and Barbara Walters should just go where old people go who can't remember facts about their guest. The old folks home!

The dyed hair and wrinkles, on both of them, gross me ou!

Go Rosie! New blood, new energy.

I don't know if tmz will put this on since it failed to do the last two. However, I believe it doesn't hurt as Larry King is really past his prime. In addition to the seinfeld debacle, we have calling Denice Brown " Nicole" and Ringo Starr " George". Seriously, rosie if done right could be a whole lot better than King right now. As for Hanrraty and Holmes I have no idea who they are so enough said.
