NEW YORK -- Rosie O'Donnell has ended her second stint on "The View," her goodbye about as short as her tenure.

Holding her toddler daughter, O'Donnell made her exit Thursday in a segment that lasted barely 40 seconds. She thanked the show's creator, Barbara Walters, and promised to bring her glue gun back someday for a crafting segment.

She had returned to "The View" in September, part of a revamp aimed at stopping a ratings slide, joining Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace on the panel.
