Its official Rosie O’Donnell is taking over the job of Meredith Vieira on the show The View. This will mark Rosie’s return to television since ending her talk show in 2001. Rosie will replace Meredith starting in September, when Meredith leaves for the Today show on NBC.

After much media speculation in recent days, including reports on the entertainment television show “Extra” and in The New York Post, Ms. Walters and Ms. O’Donnell confirmed her new job during the broadcast of the “Daytime Emmy Awards” on ABC.

“I’m sorry to interrupt your big award, but I just read something on the Internet I wanted to talk to you about,” Ms. O’Donnell said to Ms. Walters at the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles, just after Ms. Walters had presented a lifetime achievement award to Carroll Spinney of “Sesame Street.”

Ms. Walters, an executive producer of “The View,” told the audience that she indeed wanted Ms. O’Donnell to join the show, five years after Ms. O’Donnell ended her own talk show.

Its going to be great TV watching Star Jones sitting next to Rosie, can you say cat fight.
