Meanwhile O'Donnell's show has also moved into a new studio that holds far fewer seats than her original studio.

For her detractors the tea leaves are suggesting the show may fail. But don't break out the bunting just yet. O'Donnell's supporters - who include influential Harpo head Oprah Winfrey herself - aren't likely to give up the program that easily.

Put this down to tinkering - the show is far from doomed.
