    I don't get OWN on my tv so I have not personally seen any of the shows.

    This is just absolutely heartbreaking. The ratings agency that said she wasn't doing well was a right wing, neoconservative, fascist organization. I know her ratings were tops cause all my friends watched her. Another voice of freedom, liberty, and hope for the 99% stamped out by the 1%. I think we should start a petition to get her reinstated. She should be able to get tons of sponsors from the thousands who left that POS Rush Limshit.

    Heartbreaking? Hardly...

    she was pulling in a meager 150,000 viewers an episode.....when compared to her average of 5.7 million viewers with her previous show back in the mid-90s....

    so, her ratings were just not like they were. it's no wonder they canceled her show.

    And the most pathetic thing is the existence of RJ members who are rejoicing in her cancellation. We know who they are and what their mission is, but they didn't know RJ members are too smart to fall for that. I was reading she had been planning to feature some of her best health & nutrition personal meal favorites when the rug was pulled out from under her. We've got to get her back. Maybe we need to organize an occupy movement.

    Your attempt at humor fails miserably.

    I think OWN has a good chance of failing soon. (and LOGO is probably not far behind). I can think of few shows that sound more unappealing than a show called, "Oprah's Life Class".

    I hardly feel as if RuPaul will make most guys on this website care.

    There seems to be a strong dislike for effeminate homosexuals as well as cross-dressers and the transgendered.

    I am one of the few who doesn't have a problem with Rosie O'Donnell.

    It's not what she says, that's her problem...it's how she says it.

    I do feel her attacks on The Donald could be her one redeeming virtue, but he often seems to get the better of her. Better to let him be, to suffocate in his own hair.

    You got that right. That loser is totally selfish. Gives nothing, nada, zilch to charity. I love it when she takes him apart. Get a big thrill up my leg. If OWN is too f--- stupid to take her back, I bet she can land at MSNBC and get even bigger ratings! GO ROSIE!

    I liked RuPaul's Drag Race when it first came out, but the same jokes over and over and the same type of drama between contestants season after season makes it not very enjoyable very quickly.

    No offense to Rosie (who I find very untalented and "grating") but if a show doesn't pull numbers, it gets cancelled. Thats what happens.

    I think we'll see OWN going the same way as Rosie's show in itself soon.

    Why do we have to be "supportive" because she was a lesbian? Straight people never say "We should be supportive of our own" when a regular show gets cancelled.

    In fairness, I think Rosie "fought" for the right things and defended the right people. But the way she went about it, on top of her delivery, didn't endear herself to many. She just came off as loud, bitter, and angry alot of times...then she would come off as a total emotional wuss. So, in some ways, I think that made people uncomfortable with her as a person. To me, it came off as unstable many times.

    Yep. Thats the facts of life. She had a good run before. Most people never get that in show biz. So the third time around didn't work. Cut your losses and move on to the next thing. Most of us experience highs and lows in our careers. At least she isn't ending in controversy this time around. I think the public tired of her act after the View drama. Zzzzzzzz Who cares
