Oprah Announces New Show That Is Exactly Like Old Show


Remember back in November, when Oprah made a teary announcement that she was leaving the world of daytime syndication...in 18 months? And you choked up because she choked up? And you started to imagine a world where you'd never again be able to tune into sixty minutes of Oprah talking about a completely random subject (Matthew Morrison breakdancing! Chocolate! Porn stars! Funny people! Female suffering! Recovered crack addicts!)? Well, wipe those tears from your eyes, because Oprah has just announced that she will host a show on her Oprah Winfrey Network, the totally predictable format of which will shock you.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the new hourlong evening show called Oprah's Next Chapter will air two or three times a week later this year and will again feature a combination of exclusive interviews and field trips around the world:

"She'll have more riveting conversations with the people we all want to hear from, in some very unexpected places...Oprah's getting untethered from the chairs, opening up her world and taking you with her. From the Taj Mahal to her beloved oak tree, the Great Wall to her own teahouse, it's a whole new kind of Oprah show."

Among the other series announced are: Gayle King Live! (not a joke), a televised version of Oprah's friend's talk show, and a Mark Burnett-produced reality show called Your Own Show: Oprah's Search For the Next TV Star, which will help find Oprah's next Dr. Phil or Dr. Oz.

Get excited, people!

    "Oprah's Next Chapter."
    Does she realize she'll need to say this out loud??

    There's a hot air balloon joke in there somewhere, but I'm not going to be the one to make it.

    Great idea Oprah. Oprah is getting older and and very beautiful. But I think she should come with a new look and maybe put some blonde streaks in her hair. I think that would make her look much younger. Gosh I should send Oprah a picture of my daughter. Then that would give her some ideas. Any way Oprah you still are a beautiful lady. Congrat on *NEW* Show.
    Bless Be!

    I think Oprah is the anti-Christ. You have to realize when I say this that I don't even believe in Christianity, or any religion, for that matter. Nonetheless, I think she's the anti-Christ. You religious people should take heed (or whatever it is that you do).
