The show's outcome is being awaited with bated breath, as its viewership could help out in reviving an ailing network schedule, Fox News reports. NBC has already dumped "Lipstick Jungle", "My Own Worst Enemy" and "Crusoe", and has also announced that they're putting "Deal or No Deal" on the shelf for a while. If it weren't for "30 Rock" and "The Office" and the "Law & Order" show, there would have been nothing much to watch on the network at all.
For O'Donnell, this could be the beginning of something big, as her show features performances by Alannis Morrisette, Ne Yo, comedian Kathy Griffin, plus Alec Baldwin, Jane Krakowski, Rachael Ray, Harry Connick Jr., Clay Aiken, and Gloria Estefan. The actress is going to open the show with a big musical number a duet she's been rehearsing with Liza Minnelli for several days.
