Re: Rosie O'Donnell Leaving `The View'

NEW YORK (AP) -- Rosie O'Donnell's stormy tenure on "The View" will be a short one. The opinionated host was unable to agree on a contract with ABC, and she'll leave the show in June.

"My needs for the future just didn't dovetail with what ABC was able to offer me," O'Donnell said in a statement Wednesday.

"This has been an amazing experience," she said, "and one I wouldn't have traded for the world."

O'Donnell has helped raise the ratings for the daytime chat show invented by Barbara Walters. But her outspokenness has caused almost constant controversy, including a nasty name-calling feud with Donald Trump that placed Walters squarely in the middle.

"I induced Rosie to come back to television on 'The View' even for just one year," Walters said. "She has given the program new vigor, new excitement and wonderful hours of television. I can only be grateful to her for this year."

Walters was frequently left to clean up the damage after O'Donnell. She did it most recently Monday, when O'Donnell was criticized for using bad language and attacking Rupert Murdoch from the dais of the annual New York Women in Communication awards luncheon.

"I would like to point out that Rosie's view is not always mine," Walters said. "I would like to say for the record that I am very fond of Rupert Murdoch."

In the Trump imbroglio, O'Donnell was reportedly mad that Walters did not come more swiftly to her defense, while Trump said Walters told him she didn't want O'Donnell on the show -- a claim Walters denied.

Statements by public figures are being watched more closely in the post-Don Imus era. The lobbying group Focus on the Family said it was preparing to contact advertisers on "The View" as part of a campaign against O'Donnell. The group is angry at O'Donnell for comments they feel were insulting to Catholics.

Despite controversy -- or maybe because of it -- O'Donnell was good business for ABC, owned by the Walt Disney Co. Ratings for "The View" during February sweeps were up 15 percent in key women demographics over the same time in 2006.

Well that sucks.
Who is going to replace her I wonder?
I didn't even start watching The View until Rosie came on.

Bet Babs is wondering who's going to replace the ratings she brought

Re: Rosie O'Donnell Leaving `The View'

Old Rosie finally shot herself in the leg. I knew it would be a matter of time before ABC said ENOUGH. I think she would be better suited on cable television for some reason, maybe a show on HBO?

The entire reason for watching is gone. Bye Bye View!

Re: Rosie O'Donnell Leaving `The View'

ABC did not fire her, she will be back co-hosting and doing 1 hour specials.

she wasnt fired. my bet is she wanted more money or something else. but abc would be stupid to not want to renew now that the ratings are so good.

personally i think this is the end of this show.

When the View first started it was informative. Rosie has managed to turn it into a circus, but the majority of people who criticize her can't stop looking at the show to see what offensive things she'll say. It's kind of like watching, "I Love New York", many people hate everything about her but love watching a good train wreck. Personally I can't stomach more than a few clips of Rosie because she's become so militant.
