“Everybody look under your chairs. You get a pink slip! And you get a pink slip! And you get a pink slip! Everybody! Gets! A pink slip!!!”
Last week, OWN canceled The Rosie Oâ€™Donnell Show after a mere five months. Yesterday, it announced it is trimming 30 jobs. â€śItâ€™s difficult to make tough business decisions that affect peopleâ€™s lives,â€ť a humbled Winfrey said in OWNâ€™s statement. â€śThe economics of a startup cable network just donâ€™t work with the cost structure that was in place.â€ť
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.
