After realizing that she can only get a bump in the ratings by including attractive conservative women on her show it appears that Oprah Winfrey is ready to hang it up. Today she is supposed to announce that she will be doing her last show in 2011.
Maybe she is going to run as Barry O's VP candidate after being inspired by Sarah Palin.
"The Oprah Winfrey Show," an iconic broadcast that grew over two decades into a daytime television powerhouse and the foundation of a multibillion-dollar media empire, will end its run in 2011 after 25 seasons on the air, Winfrey's production company said Thursday night. Winfrey plans to announce the final date for her show during a live broadcast on Friday, Harpo Productions Inc. said, bringing an end to what has been television's top-rated talk show for more than two decades, airing in 145 countries worldwide and watched by an estimated 42 million viewers a week in the U.S. alone.
Don't worry though, she has all kinds of other ventures out there and she will not completely disappear.
Winfrey is widely expected to start up a new talk show on OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network, a much-delayed joint venture with Discovery Communications Inc. that is expected to debut in 2011. OWN is to replace the Discovery Health Channel and will debut in some 74 million homes. An OWN spokeswoman declined comment Thursday.
