Rosie O'Donnell has said she has no hard feelings about the recent cancellation of her nighttime talk show, The Rosie Show.

O'Donnell's The Rosie Show was trumpeted by the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) as a cornerstone of the nascent network when the show premiered in October. On Friday, OWN canceled The Rosie Show due to poor ratings.

In a message to viewers, O'Donnell thanked Winfrey for the opportunity to return to television.

“Listen, Oprah gave me an amazing shot at doing this. She really did. She put me back on TV. She believed in me,” O'Donnell said. “I didn't even know if I could do it again, truthfully. And she said, 'I think you can.' And I said, 'I think I can, too.' And off I came here to Chicago.”

O'Donnell, who turns 50 on March 21, added, “Here's the bottom line: It's a business, right? It didn't make financial sense to continue the show at the cost because of the amount of viewers.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
