Rosie O’Donnell is back on our TV screens with her own talk show again – on Oprah Winfrey‘s OWN network. “The Rosie Show” premieres Monday night (Oct. 10) at 7 p.m. ET. For her debut show, Rosie is welcoming actor Russell Brand and Crystal Bowersox via video link, plus the big O herself.

In these preview clips, Rosie relays her love affair with Russell Brand. She ran into him in the airport and is completely obsessed with him, and a love affair was born. She says “he’s her new Tommy.” So what could she do now in place of her “Tommy, can ya hear me?” bit?

When Oprah stops by, she gives Rosie tips about welcoming guests to her show in Oprah’s signature style. And Crystal Bowersox, “American Idol” Season 9 runner-up, is there via video link with her husband Brian Walker to find a good home for their kitty Kate.

What do you think, will you be tuning in for “The Rosie Show”?
