My 5: Pop Culture Moments That Shaped 'Conversations With People Who Hate Me' Host Dylan Marron (Exclusive)

My 5: Pop Culture Moments That Shaped 'Conversations With People Who Hate Me' Host Dylan Marron (Exclusive)
Most people want to run away from comment sections and bullies (and the bullies in comment sections), but Dylan Marron isn't most people.

The New York-based writer and performer may be best known as the voice of Carlos in the beloved mystery podcast, Welcome to Night Vale, but as the host of his very own podcast, Conversations With People Who Hate Me, Marron is taking a break from fictional narratives to, as the title suggests, take on his haters.

"Online comment sections feel like a microcosm of our current political climate. As a writer and performer whose work exists mostly on the Internet, I would get a ton of hate messages and comments," Marron tells Et. "Initially, I wanted to just block out the negativity, but as I realized that (some of) these negative comments were opportunities for actual conversation, I didn't want to keep turning these people away from my digital front door. So I let some

The 5 Biggest Problems with Oprah's Network

The Oprah Winfrey Network is a sprawling entrepreneurial effort by a woman who some consider to be the greatest pop cuture icon of all time. That begs the question, "So why don't I ever care to watch it?" I'm not necessarily the biggest Oprah fan on the planet, but you'd think her enormous influence would coerce me into a couple of Lifeclasses. I'm gay and stuff. I could dig it, right?

That hasn't been the case. Recently, Opra admitted in an interview with CBS that if she wrote a book about the Own Network, it'd be called 101 Mistakes. That's a little overzealous, I think. If you subtracted 96 mistakes from that book and highlighted the following five issues, you'd uncover the network's true woes.

1. Oprah should never reduce herself to the 50+ demographic.

And now, a comprehensive catalog of The Oprah Winfrey Network's offerings: hour-long Master Class monologues by orators ranging from Ted Turner to Goldie Hawn,

Rosie O'Donnell's Own show canceled after 5 months

Rosie O'Donnell is yet again a talk show host without a home. On Friday (March 16), Own announced that the final episode of "The Rosie Show" is slated to air on March 30.

"I thank Rosie from the bottom of my heart for joining me on this journey.  She has been an incredible partner, working to deliver the best possible show every single day," says Oprah Winfrey in a statement. "As I have learned in the last 15 months, a new network launch is always a challenge and ratings grow over time as you continue to gather an audience.  I'm grateful to Rosie and the dedicated Rosie Show team for giving it their all."

"I loved working with Oprah in the amazing city of Chicago," says O'Donnell. "I was welcomed with open arms and will never forget the kindness of all I encountered. It was a great year for me -- I wish

Rosie O'Donnell graces the cover of "O" with Oprah

Oprah sure does love her gay gals. With the exception of First Lady Michelle Obama, Oprah has only shared the cover of her magazine with lesbians — first with Ellen DeGeneres in December 2009, and now with Rosie O'Donnell in this month's issue.

Rosie gave O, The Oprah Magazine a candid interview, in which she discussed coming out, and her very public marriage and divorce from Kelli Carpenter. She says the only people who didn't know she was a lesbian during her wildly successful talk show run "were the audience." And that splitting from Carpenter was both "humbling" and "humiliating," as she is the first person in the O'Donnell family to ever get a divorce.

[We were so different.] She wanted to play tennis at the country club, and I don’t do country clubs. I tried. They made an exception for a gay family, and we joined. It was a big thing: "They let in a gay family – whoo!

Daytime Emmys battle between 'Ellen' and 'Rachael Ray': Round 5

Daytime Emmys battle between 'Ellen' and 'Rachael Ray': Round 5
GoldDerby had access to the sample episodes submitted to Daytime Emmy voters, and forums poster jcar thinks “Rachael Ray” will pull off a narrow victory for Best Talk Show (Entertainment) against last year's champ “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” The Best Talk Show race has historically favored repeat winners. “Donahue” won six times in nine years (1978-1981, 1985, 1986). Then “The Oprah Winfrey Show” prevailed a remarkable nine times between 1987 and 1997, losing only twice (to “Sally Jesse Raphael” in 1990 and “Good Morning America” in 1993). After “Oprah” removed her show from contention, “The Rosie O'Donnell Show” followed with five consecutive wins (1998-2002). “Ellen” seem poised to dominate the category indefinitely, winning for its first four years (2004-2007).Then in 2008, the TV Academy split the talk show category into two separate races – one ...

Oprah's Own Picks Up Rosie Daytime Talk

Four months ago, Rosie O'Donnell, who hosted the syndicated The Rosie O'Donnell Show and did a stint on ABC's The View, teamed with syndication veterans Dick Robertson and Scott Carlin for a new syndicated daytime talk show. Now they have found a buyer, Oprah Winfrey's upstart cable network Own, a co-venture with Discovery Communications. Interesting move by Winfrey, who once competed with O'Donnell for the title of daytime talk show queen at the height of The Rosie O'Donnell Show in the late 1990s. O'Donnell is a polarizing figure with strong political views and aggressive style who had previously indicated that she planned to stay true to herself on her new show. So giving her a daily talker on Own, a network built on the premise of inspiring women and helping them better their lives, is somewhat surprising. But the description of the new show supplied by Own seems to

Rosie O'Donnell plans return to daytime TV

Rosie O'Donnell plans return to daytime TV
Rosie O'Donnell is returning to the daytime talk show game.

According to Showbiz 411, O'Donnell is teaming with veteran syndicated show producers Dick Robertson and Scott Carlin to launch another daytime show, hopefully in the fall of 2011.

A fall 2011 launch would coincide with the exit of Oprah Winfrey from ABC's daytime schedule, as Winfrey is leaving to launch to her Own network.

This isn't the first time O'Donnell has worked with Robertson and Carlin, as they helped launched her self-titled talk show. Robertson actually helmed the project for its entire six-year run.

Between the success of "The Rosie O'Donnell Show," which won numerous daytime Emmys during its time on the air, and Rosie's one-year foray into "The View" a few years ago, she should be an easy frontrunner to talk over Winfrey's slot at ABC.

The Rosie O'Donnell Show: Host May Return to Daytime in 2011

Often controversial host Rosie O'Donnell is looking to return to daytime as an option for local stations when The Oprah Winfrey Show leaves the airwaves.

O'Donnell hosted her first daytime program, The Rosie O'Donnell Show, from 1996 until 2002. It won numerous awards, including five consecutive Emmys for the host. Episodes of the feel-good chat series focus on celebrities, Broadway shows, children and charitable organizations.

After being off the small screen for five years, she returned as a co-host of The View and brought lots of politics and opinions into the "hot topic" discussions. The ratings went up but that stint only lasted one year due to her not being able to come to a consensus with ABC on the length of a new contract.

  Most recently, O'Donnell has been hosting Rosie Radio, a daily two-hour show on Sirius

Rosie O'Donnell Mulling a Daytime Return

Rosie O'Donnell could be making her return to daytime TV. According to Showbiz 411, the former host of "The Rosie O'Donnell Show" has signed a deal with two old pals, syndication veterans Dick Robertson and Scott Carlin, for a brand new syndicated talk show.

O'Donnell and Robertson previously worked together on the Emmy-winning "O'Donnell Show". He is currently the advisor of Warner Bros. Domestic TV Distribution. Carlin, in the meantime, was part of the team that launched "O'Donnell Show". He worked for Robertson for almost two decades before leaving in 1999.

The new show which will be hosted by O'Donnell reportedly is eyeing a fall 2011 launch. Should the story is true, it will begin airing on small screen as Oprah Winfrey's "The Oprah Winfrey Show" bows out. Gossip Cop claimed that this show is likely to follow the comedienne's current radio show format rather than her old talk show.

Rosie O'Donnell is plotting a return to daytime.

O'Donnell, who hosted the syndicated "The Rosie O'Donnell Show" and did a stint on ABC's "The View," has teamed with syndication veterans Dick Robertson and Scott Carlin for another syndicated talk show.

The show, hosted by O'Donnell, is eyed for fall 2011 launch, which would coincide with the exit of "The Oprah Winfrey Show."

The show will be produced independently by a company formed by O'Donnell, Robertson and Carlin.

Domestic TV Distribution, a post he held for 17 years until segueing into an adviser position in 2006, Robertson shepherded the sales of the Telepictures-produced "Rosie O'Donnell Show," which ran for six years and won a truckload of Emmys, including five consecutive best talk show statuettes.
