Rosie to stay put for a year

Rosie O'Donnell will keep her spot at the View table for at least another year. "Rosie is going to get her own show - but it's too late to do a show for September 2007, so she will re-up for one more year at the View and then do her own show that debuts in September 2008," says an ABC insider, who claims the network wants to hold on to O'Donnell. "She revived a ten-year-old show that was on its last legs," says another source, and since O'Donnell began last September, viewership is up a reported 75,000 viewers a week. However, there might be a catch to the job extension - "She wants [executive producer] Bill Geddie out. They hate each other," said an insider. "She'll stay if he leaves."
