NBC has axed Rosie O'Donnell's variety show Rosie Live after only 1 episode.

Well, now we know who made up all of the viewers.

"There's a notion that the climate is right for the genre to make a comeback," emailed an executive at a rival network.

"I guess we now know what not to do, thanks to Rosie."

Yeah, anyone remember the Nick and Jessica's holiday variety act?
