Rosie O'Donnell's live NBC show is about to become a live variety show on Broadway.

The weekly show will get a test run on November 26th at the Shubert theater and will include celebrity guests, comedy skits, music, and a contest for studio and home viewers.

"We want to show people that variety can be done in a new and inventive way for 2008," said Craig Plestis, NBC Entertainment's Exec VP. "We hope to do it in ways you haven't seen before. It's going to be the YouTube of variety shows."

Hopefully, this will work out better than Rosie's last Broadway venture, the disastrous musical Taboo, which opened in November 2003 and closed less than three months later, costing the TV talk show host her entire $10 million investment.
