No doubt a lot of folks were too busy stuffing their turkeys or retrieving relatives from the airport to turn on the TV Wednesday night but Barbara Walters did succeed in luring 11.5 million viewers to her her ABC interview special at 10 p.m. Of course, it helped that she had as her guest President-elect Barack Obama. Walters’ former “View”-mate Rosie O’Donnell didn’t fare as well earlier in the evening. Her NBC variety show “Rosie Live” drew a measly 5 million viewers, even less than “Knight Rider” draws in the same 8 p.m. slot. This should prove once and for all that the variety show format is dead and “The Ed Sullivan Show” won’t be back.
