Last week, OWN canceled The Rosie O‚ÄôDonnell Show after a mere five months. Yesterday, it announced it is trimming 30 jobs. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs difficult to make tough business decisions that affect people‚Äôs lives,‚ÄĚ a humbled Winfrey said in OWN‚Äôs statement. ‚ÄúThe economics of a startup cable network just don‚Äôt work with the cost structure that was in place.‚ÄĚ
I think she’s saying they’re not making enough money.
You can dwell on this setback for Oprah if you want, but I choose to remember happier times:
BTW, now Oprah and Rosie are “not on speaking terms.” So it works out for both of them.
