  • However, O’Donnell and CBS opted to have her last day be Thursday instead of Friday.
  • The show bid farewell to her after, rather appropriately, a “Big Bang Theory” segment titled “Going out with a bang.”
  • As is common with departing anchors, the show ran a package looking back at her time with the show along with well wishes from colleagues and even competitors.
  • O’Donnell has been named to take over the “CBS Evening News” this summer and will likely spend the time between now and then getting ready for the new role.
  • The show will initially broadcast from New York, but will move to Washington, D.C., where O’Donnell’s family lives, sometime in the fall.
