Rosie To Revive Variety

I’m pleased to hear that Rosie O’Donnell will be trying to revive the variety show on network television, starting with a Thanksgiving week special. And something tells me that she won’t try to do the Carol Burnett version of the genre, or, let’s hope, the Dolly Parton version. In addition to booking the younger, celebutante guests that ratings will require, Rosie will undoubtedly use this “platform” to slip in the occasional Broadway star or future star. That’s a good thing.
