They Picked Who??

The news. The SHOCKING news that came out Friday…How could they? What were they thinking? One of the most anticipated announcements in the world of entertainment, business and media combined. We thought we knew what and WHO the news was going to be about.

I mean, you’re serious? Here are we are, waiting for the CHOICE. The SELECTION. The PICK. Speculation was off the chart. Rumors. Murmurings. Leaks to the media. Public and private negotiations. And THIS is final selection? Undoubtedly a decision that will have ramifications for years to come.

Rosie O’Donnell is replacing Meredith Viera on The View?! You’re freaking kidding me! The world has officially come to an end. Rosie Freakin’ O’Donnell!

I mean it’s tough to replace a legend like the Millionaire chick. Word out of NY was that Connie Chung was at the top of Barbara WaWa’s depth chart. But Rosie? C’mon, who was negotiating this deal? Just how much did Connie want in guaranteed money?

Sure I know there was controversy with Connie this week. But ABC said that was not going to affect their decision. Yeah, Maury Povich is rumored to have had an affair with a staffer. But jeez, it’s not like her parents were living in a nice home without paying rent.

Just when the inside tackle on The View lost about 150 pounds and now looks anorexic, Barbara WaWa goes and signs a larger Defensive End. “The Queen of Nice?” No more.

I can’t wait to see Rosie and Joy square off on their first show. THIS will be better than the NFL. And Star isn’t that much better. The left side of that line-up will be a marketer’s dream. I can see them lining up the endorsements now…earplugs, aspirin, boxing gloves, Midol. Hey, must see TV just came to mornings on ABC.

Well, good luck, Rosie. You just lost a viewer. I’m going to have to find something else to watch weekday mornings after I turnoff Regis and the future Ms. Garfield II, Kelly Ripa. Ellen? ESPN Sportscenter repeats? Infomercials? I dunno, maybe this will wake me up and cause me to go out and get an actual job.


  • Hilarious, Garf! Heard this on your show today. At least us Texans fans can laugh about something.
