Her NBC special the night before Thanksgiving attracted a meager audience of 5 million viewers. That was ranked 81st among the prime-time shows in Nielsen Media Research's weekly ranking released Tuesday.

The show was widely considered a test drive: if it intrigued audiences, an O'Donnell variety show could be a potential series.

NBC now says there are no plans to make any more O'Donnell specials.
