I don’t really hate Rosie O’ Donnell. I suppose she has her place somewhere on TV, but I’m so glad to hear that she will not be emoting versus Kyle Chandler on one of the BEST shows on TV: Friday Night Lights. Rumors abounded that Ms. O’Donnell was going to play a soccer coach at our favorite TV high school. Not so, says TV Guides TV guru of gurus, Michael Ausiello, who tends to know these things. Ausiello was hoping that O’Donnell would be on the show…We can’t be perfect, Michael.
If you haven’t watched FNL yet, be sure to tune in or at least TiVo the sucker. It’s worth your time. The nimrods at NBC are airing FNL on Friday nights in the upcoming season, which actually does sound appropriate, but generally portends the death knell for shows of this sort.
