I'm in a bad mood, but . . .

Sort of pissy, really. A lot of it is the weather. Too little sun does that to me. Also, the various weather systems that go in and out of the state wreak havoc with the back. Not nice. It's a shortened holiday season and there's a lot to do. Two uncles in bad shape. One won't make it to Christmas. Short days. All of this just gets to me, sometimes.

Well, things are looking up. Every now and again something comes along and lifts my spirits. Usually it's my daughter . . . or my wife. Though, by other means (ahem). This time it actually comes from Hollyweird.

Yes, there is intelligent life on earth, and in America. In the bad reality soaked brains of the viewing public, even Rosie couldn't convince. Yesssssssssss. After just one showing of Rosie Live, the plug was pulled.

Rosie O’Donnell’s variety show, “Rosie Live,” will be canceled after its pilot debuted to low ratings and bad reviews.

After the pilot episode of Rosie O’Donnell’s variety show, “Rosie Live,” debuted to bad reviews and low ratings, the former talk show host announced on her blog that the show has been canceled, according to People magazine.

After last week’s debut, O’Donnell wrote, "there will b no more. no ratings. bad reviews. yet still – a thrill 4 me."

The show attracted just five million viewers to the NBC production, which led the network to drop the show from its lineup. The show debuted last Wednesday, the same night that O’Donnell’s former View co-host, Barbara Walters, aired an interview with President-Elect Barack Obama and First Lady-to-be, Michelle Obama.

Viewership for O’Donnell’s show was lower than the ratings for Knight Rider, which typically airs at 8 p.m. on Wednesday.

“Rosie Live” featured celebrity guests such as Alanis Morissette, Alec Baldwin and Clay Aiken and earned a 1.2 preliminary rating among the 18-49 age group.

Last week’s debut marked O’Donnell’s return to television, though it was short-lived.

"Lower rating than Knight Rider" . . . hee hee heeeee. I actually wanted to watch it so I could provide some commentary. I missed it. Too bad. Maybe I could have cashed in with DVD's of the episode as a collector item. The larger they are, the bigger the fall.

Rosie fell hard. Yes, I mean that a couple of ways.

Question. What supposed intelligent adult writes on a BLOG in text/chat language? Is Rosie that frikkin lazy she can't write whole words and sentences? What an idiot.

Another question. What idiot in Hollyweird thought this was going to be a good idea?

Anyway, I'm feeling better all of a sudden.
