Rosie O’Donnell could head to NBC

South Nyack resident Rosie O’Donnell could be getting her own weekly variety show on NBC, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Apparently NBC is trying to make a similar deal with Jay Leno, who was born in New Rochelle. Leno leaves his show next year and but is more likely to sign a deal with ABC, according to rumors. If that’s the case, a primetime NBC deal with Rosie sounds likely.

MSNBC earlier this year was close to giving Rosie her own own hour show but she claims the network “panicked” and backed out after the news broke out. I’m sure that’s what it was.
