Rosie: 'The View' Sucks Without Me

Rosie: 'The View' Sucks Without Me

Former talk show co-host Rosie O’Donnell slams The View for saying that ratings are up +16% versus YAG.

FYI: YAG stands for “Year At a Glance”, an annual schedule of implementation initiatives.

Here is Rosie‘s blog entry, which is titled “TRUTH IN ADVERTISING, BABY”. Leave your thought in the comments — does Rosie prove her point?

You decide! Rosie says,

“While im all about creative use of ratings, I think we need to do something with the lovely people at the view insisting that the ratings are up without rosie when in fact they are not…

Here is the real data based on live plus same day viewing:

P2+ 3,576 + 7.8%
HH 2.8 rating versus 2.66 YAG + 5.3%
W 18- 49 1.47 versus 1.6 YAG – 8.8%
W 25-54 1.77 versus 1.92 YAG – 8.5%
W 18-34 1.03 versus 1.23 YAG – 19.4%
W 50+ 2.3 versus 2.13 YAG + 8.0 %

Note that the show is bought from an advertising perspective which is their only revenue stream on either the W 18-49 or 25-54 demo meaning they are LOSING revenue versus YAG. Also, the most valuable demo is the younger one 18-34 which is really hemmoraging. They are picking up older viewers 50+ which are of less value to advertisers.

Again – they should really use the ACTUAL REAL numbers in their press statements and if they don’t, then maybe we should…..

    I personally disagree, now that she left i kind of like that view!

  • Babysis

    She’s a Fa.g and so wrong it sucked before now it doesn’t!

  • http://cdkslaow Me

    she view rocks w\out her she was a 13itch !!!!!!! i hated her im gunna buy her book and burn it !!!!!! =D haha

  • Matt

    Like her or not, she is 100% correct. It’s a shame so many Web sites uncritically picked up THE VIEW’s PR-generated release about ratings being up without Rosie. Also, it’s a bigger shame that a person named “Babysis” would find it necessary to use a slur instead of just saying she doesn’t like Rosie’s style…

  • j

    i hated the view when she was on


    i have to sayyy… i lyk the view better w/o her…it seems more lively now…go whoppi!!!!

  • carrie

    I think she’s got issues! I strongly believe she has anger issues and should seek mental help! It seems no matter what or with who she gets involved with, problems ensue, and I feel very uncomfortable just looking at her picture let alone watching her on television. Get some help Rosie! Maybe take some anger management classes.

  • Amy

    I think Rosie needs to shut up and be an adult. They allow this woman to raise kids? She acts like a 16 year old girl.

  • Mary

    God, will she very just shut-up & go away. We are better off without her stupid, reckless, moronic views. If she was wanted by the public she would actually have a job instead of sitting on her ever expanding a$$ & blogging like a 10 year-old!

  • jade

    Good job Rosie….call them out…Liar’s!!

  • Daisy

    The view sucked with Rosie on it. She was hostile & loud & obnoxious. I very much like it now that she is no longer on the show.

  • jade

    The show sucks…I watched it yesterday and Woopie was talking about butt-acne….it’s supposed to be funny ….Woopie has not humor without a script.

  • London

    what happen to this woman??!

  • Lillianne

    I loved Rosie. She was the kindest hearted person at one time. But she has become so grumpy and hateful towards others who don’t agree with her that I can’t honestly say I would watch her show anymore if she had it. I wonder what happened to her to make her so obnoxious?

    And gay/schmay. Who cares about that anymore? If you do, get over it already.

  • Madi

    This woman is an idiot. I don’t care if she’s gay or not, but I hate how she loves Iran but hates Bush. No gay people live in Iran. Sure gay marriage is illegal but it’s not like Bush kills gays. That said I hate Bush, but still.

  • Ally

    I like Whoopi a hell of a lot more than when Rosie was on.She’s very well spoken. But it might be more interesting if they kept Rosie and got rid of Elizabeth and/or Sherri. I can’t stand Sherri’s big dumb perma-smile.

  • Nesa

    She seriously needs to get over herself. She is not the shit. Just keep doing your little cruises Rosie, no one cares what you have to say. I dislike that Hasselback broad, and could do without that red-haired broad as well, but Rosie just sounds like a bitter hag at this point – GIVE IT UP!!

  • jess

    could rosie BE any more bitter? she needs to move on already and stop trying to capitalize on her former job. frankly, the view sucked while she was on and now with whoopi it rocks. rosie was too self-centered to contribute anything worth listening to on the show.

  • Admonisher

    She is confusing quality tv with trash tv..I will never say “The View” Was or is quality tv….but the only reason the ratings were better was because she couldn’t keep her big fat fucking mouth shut and would push everyones hot buttons…then blame them for having a problem, with her.

    Rosie is a cancer on the face of the earth and Im glad I dont have to see her huge pumpkin head in the news…..

    big attention
    seeking useless
    not talented
    better off
    gone “comedian”
    yet nothing
    she says
    is funny…

    go figure

    I personally think this woman has anger issues. Maybe she was molested, as recent news reports have stated, according to leaks from her new book.

    Why does she even care whether the view is doing better without her.
    She said on her last day that their schedule was not compatible with the other things she wanted to do with her life. So, she wrote a book, is that the only thing she had to do with her life.

    She politely refused Oprahs’ invitation to sit down and discuss her book. She cancelled her scheduled interview with Diane Sawyer. Personally, I think she needs to take a break from any public communications, blogging included, and seek intensive spiritual counseling.

    There appears to be a deep anger and self-destructive pattern that Rosie displays. Every statement she seems to make since co-hosting the view has made her appear to be a deeply unhappy and wounded person.

    I wish her peace and happiness and help to get through her apparent hurt.

  • angie

    Rosie has a point, but I agree with the above blogger, she does appear to have behavioral issues most likely stemming from her childhood. WHAT SHE NEEDS IS SOME SELF REFLECTION and the ability to want to be and do better. Carrying around all the hate is not helping her or anyone. The VIEW did not kick her off the show, she left and is now bitter for doing so. Elizabeth only stuck up for herself that day because she had to, Rosie has been commming at her for months and Elizabeth took it. I am proud that Elizabeth stuck up for herself and yes, she did not cry. Rosie needs to get a life. But, I will say this, between her and Britney Spears they are pure entertainment.

  • Her problem is….

    She needs to get laid by a dude to take the edge off, seriously.

  • Fat-girl

    Rosie is truly a miserable human being and this is coming from a person who agrees with her on ALOT of issues. She needs counseling and to stop wallowing in her own SH!T

  • kay

    she really has mental problems, i do not know why she keeps talking about the view, something tells me she was angry when she got fired/ her contract was not renewed, everybody has moved except her, i wish she would just STFU and stop whinning like a baby. i believe she thought the show was gonna drop its ratings after she left it, and now the opposite is true

  • Lillianne

    Bitter! That’s what it is. She seems bitter. She would comment from time to time about what an angry and bitter person her father is. And yet she is now the same way. Her poor wife and kids if they have to put up with this.

  • eddie

    yeah, getting laid by a dude makes so many straight women happy!! HA.

    if you look at the blog, you’ll see she didn’t write it. she just pasted it.

    and, what the hell is wrong with being ANGRY? if you all were paying attention, you’d be angry, too.

    still, if you read her blog, which is her voice unfiltered, unfettered, you’d see that she has pretty much the normal range of emotions, including anger, joy, introspection, sadness, etc.–despite the fact that all the media post are pictures of her with her mouth open and snarling, like that would be hard to catch with anyone in the news.

    oh, and why isn’t anyone posting about how angry donald trump seems to be? or how sadly barbara walters makes not-so-subtle references to rosie while she stifles (BW) her obvious anger. yet, rosie still loves her unconditionally.


  • michelle

    She has major issues. She’s obsessed with not being there now. She misses the attention and the platform for her craziness.
    I think she is going to go over the edge the longer it goes that nobody feeds her with comments or pays attention to her. She cant’deal with it.

  • Michelle

    Didn’t she quit? What difference should it make to her what their ratings are? I think she quit because she hoped their ratings would tank without her. And now she sees that they didn’t and she’s upset. What a pain in the a**

  • SusiQ

    The View was much better with Rosie on it! Never watch anymore.

  • Truth

    That blog post was not written by Rosie. She never claimed the View sucks without her. Read the info before you make false claims; she posted the article in her blog. Rosie did not make that comment. Truth and facts in Journalism are the number one lessons you learn. This comment is not for or against Rosie; it is about stating the facts. Step right up all you rosie haters; makes yourselves look like further idiots by bashing me, when I never stated my personal opinion about her. C’mon, you have nothing better to do with your time now do you?

  • Iris

    So childsh.

  • Boo

    She is a very angry woman … doesn’t she has anything good to say anymore? Chill out woman!

  • dogandponybot

    Maybe she can deal with her anger management issues by smashing her fingers again. Or… perhaps her toes this time. She needs her fingers for typing.
    hehehehe — i love it that she’s always so upset about something.

  • Dean

    I stopped watching it when Ro was on. She was SO full of hate and SUPER bitter.
    I have it on TiVo now and watch it everyday. I love Whoopi as the mod. She doesn’t need to be funny. That is not her call right now.


    Actually I like ROSIE, but I prefer it now!

    @ #12, Whoopie is not supposed to be funny. That would be taking away from Joy and Sherri. Whoopie is the moderator. She is supposed to keep the discussions op point and basically make sense.

    That was Rosie’s job, but Rosie always got in a fight with Dumbo Elizabeth.

    Notice that now everyone gets to give their opinion. I enjoyed Friday’s show.. Sherri is hilarious. She makes good fun of herself!

  • DC

    What an idiot. Does she ever shut up?
    What happened to the Rosie that starred in Harriet the Spy!?!?

    People need to realize that Bush isn’t solely responsible for Gay marriage being illegal. Heck, only one major Democratic candidate is actually for it, and that’s not Obama or Clinton, for those of you who were wondering.

    Gay or not, when Rosie was on the view it wasn’t women from different walks of life sharing opinions. It was women who agreed with Rosie sharing opinions and anyone else (IE Elisabeth H.) being told that they need to let other people talk, and not actually being allowed to express their own ideas.

    Whoopie has said some ridiculous crap (Michael Vick, south, blah blah) but she is a democrat who is willing to let Elisabeth be heard, and I respect that. Liberal, conservative, each side has its good guys and bad guys. The bad guys are the ones who won’t even let the other opinion be heard. That’s Rosie. If you don’t agree with her you are evil and wrong and you don’t get your freedom of speech.

    I’m glad Rosie’s off the view, and the 50+ audience is too. I’ve got some news for her, I’m a 21 year old woman. I’m the perfect target demographic. My mother is 55 and “of less value to advertisers.” Guess who spends a ton more money?

    And if Rosie posted the article link in her blog, and she didn’t criticize it, I take that as meaning she agrees with it. She might as well have written it as far as her opinions go.

  • spooky

    The View sucks with OR without her.

  • Peach

    Could she be more bitter??? The View (no matter what the ratings) is so much better than when she was there. Whoopie is so much more polite and can express her views without belittling anyone else’s views. Lizzie is more tolerable (even if I’ll never agree with her politics – although I don’t accept Joy’s either). Sherrie may not be very bright – but she’s a happy person and it is contagious.

    Rosie was a bitter drag who didn’t want anyone to disagree with her.

    I’m so glad she’s gone. Now if she’d just go play on the freeway.

  • dddarl

    her bitterness is seriously going to impact her lifespan. obesity and bitterness is not a good mix. i wish she could find something to be happy about. she was so awesome when she put out positive energy. the world embraced her. years ago, she had the best talk show and i looked forward to seeing her on tv. how times have changed. her bitter agenda is just annoying. yuck.

  • Peach

    One more thing!! How could she have ever been called the Queen of Nice?????

  • K.T.

    P2+ 3,576 + 7.8%
    HH 2.8 rating versus 2.66 YAG + 5.3%
    W 18- 49 1.47 versus 1.6 YAG – 8.8%
    W 25-54 1.77 versus 1.92 YAG – 8.5%
    W 18-34 1.03 versus 1.23 YAG – 19.4%
    W 50+ 2.3 versus 2.13 YAG + 8.0

    Looking at this makes me feel like I’m flunking math all over again.

    I liked the show with Rosie. I like Sheri Shepard on her own but on The View, she’s boring. I like Whoopi but again, not on show. I don’t think the women have the same chemistry as with Rosie. I think Babs should’ve hired Kathy Griffin.

  • V

    Anyway, I don’t like her.

  • danny

    i love rosie! You go girl!

  • Samantha

    Rosie O Donnell is obviously a very depressed and unhappy woman. I mean this dizzy bitch has negative things to say about anybody. I wish this bitch would return to the pasture.

  • http://justjared Barbara

    I can’t stand Rosie anymore, just the sight of her face turns me off. She is constantly ragging on people and she thinks her opinion is the only right one. I don’t always disagree with what she is saying, but she has no manners and she is repulsive.

  • mercredi

    This woman really needs to see a psychiatrist.

  • kc

    Obviously someone with access to the real numbers wrote her. It should be a pretty trustworthy source or she wouldn’t bother to post it. Since The View is spinning it as the ratings are improving on Rosie’s tenure, it’s inevitable that someone will research the real numbers to verify.

  • lki

    Love ya Rosie
