Rosie O'Donnell And Chorus Sing Poniewozik (Video)

Monday’s premiere episode of The Rosie Show, Rosie O’Donnell’s new nightly talk show on Oprah’s OWN network, didn’t inspire me to write about it, or watch again: a little so-so standup, Russell Brand in his inspirational cleaned-up mode, a game show that was funnier than expected only because it looked like such a horrible idea in the first place. But I might have to reconsider, because she has now done something that will endear her to me probably forever – a major production number praising a TV critic, Time magazine’s great James Poniewozik.

And just when you thought TV had exhausted every possible use for Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.” Take a look at her thoroughly fresh and fun tribute to the man she calls Jimmy PZ.
