Rosie O’Donnell: New Deal Reunites Her With Old Pals

Rosie O’Donnell’s new domestic TV syndication deal reunites with her two old pals from past lives.

Rosie’s gone into business with Scott Carlin, former head of HBO Domestic Distribution, and Dick Robertson, ex head of Warner syndication. More than a decade ago, Carlin worked with Robertson at Warner TV.

These two are powerhouses. Carlin at HBO was responsible for the sale of “The Sopranos” to A&E, and for the sale of “clean” episodes of “Sex and the City” to stations everywhere.

For Rosie, reuniting with this pair means the promise of big deals as they look to replace Oprah Winfrey in the afternoon slot she’s leaving come 2011. If Rosie returns to a live-feel show from New York, expect big things, too.

One thing she won’t do: put her Sirius radio show on TV. If Rosie’s back, it’s going to be big: Broadway performances, all her friends, and lots of laughs.

    I can’t wait, and people are getting sick and tired or the same old thrasy talk shows that are out there like Jerry Springer, and Maury. The been doing the same thing for years! It would be great to finally see Rosie back in the studio once again. I loved her when she voiced her opinion on “The View” and it was always water cooler talk the next day. Now the ratings for “The View” have dropped its a ok show but not he same when Rosie was on there. Now would people rather watch a extra hour of news or be entertained? I rather be entertained!
