The hour-long talk show, which premiered on the OWN Network in December 2011, currently films in Chicago at Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Studios. The program, which recently did away with its game show segment, has also begun to air more on-on-one interviews. The chat show, according to Variety, averaged 204,000 viewers last month. O'Donnell's first, award-winning talk show, "The Rosie O'Donnell Show," was filmed in Manhattan. No official announcement about a move to New York has been made.
Rosie O'Donnell made her Broadway debut as Rizzo in the 1994 revival of Grease!, played a limited engagement as the Cat in the Hat in the Ahrens-Flaherty musical Seussical, and portrayed Golde in the recent revival of Fiddler on the Roof. The performer also spent some time on the other side of the footlights as producer of the Broadway version of Boy George's Taboo.
O'Donnell rose to fame as a stand-up comic before landing roles in such films as "A League of Their Own," "Sleepless in Seattle," "The Flintsones" and "Exit to Eden." Her Emmy-winning talk show, "The Rosie O'Donnell Show," ran from 1996 to 2001, and her more recent TV credits include appearances on "Will & Grace" and "Queer as Folk" as well as the made-for-television movie "Riding the Bus with My Sister" and the cable series "Nip/Tuck." She also spent a year as co-host of ABC-TV's "The View."
