We’re here to tell you just how to set your DVR before heading out for drinks or dinner–or just watching something better on TV!

We haven’t watched Rosie O’Donnell’s nightly show on the Oprah Winfrey Network–her humor, predicated always on a lot of Hollywood references, seems to have devolved into just saying the names of people or movies or TV shows and then being like, “stupid, right?” She’s the hashtag rap of celebrity comedians. Tonight sees Kathy Griffin’s appearance on The Rosie Show, and it’s a rare occasion on which we might be tempted to watch: Ms. Griffin’s humor is very similar, but backed up by the occasional spicy anecdote of behind-the-scenes celebrity behavior. Ms. O’Donnell will either push her for some intriguing gossip–or sit back and let invective fly without much in the way of context or joke-construction. Either way, it’ll be a trainwreck we might DVR, just so we can say we’ve seen the not-terribly-inspiring crown jewel in Oprah’s empire of feminine inspiration.

Set your DVR for OWN at 7pm to record The Rosie Show.
