Date of Last Episode of 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' Announced

The final original episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" will air May 25.

Winfrey's Chicago-based Harpo Productions confirmed the date Friday. Winfrey announced live on the show in November 2009 that she would end its run after 25 years. She since has launched cable's Oprah Winfrey Network.

The story is too old to be commented.

Really Oprah? She should have had a last episode a long time ago!

I could have sworn that they announced this a long time ago. I guess it was just announcing that the series would come to an end, but I really thought they had already set this. Oh well, should be interesting to see what that last episode has in store.

Good Riddance. Oprah is far too overrated.

darklordzor3954d ago

Totally agree with you there. I've watched her show on several different occasions throughout the years and never saw what was so special. Then again I don't think much of any talk show either.

The difference between Oprah and other talk shows is that she really has interesting and relevant things to talk about. Not only does she have tons of celebrity guests but she also has guests who have been through devastating and amazing things in their life. She reaches all the women and african american audiences. She demands attention by being so powerful and versatile. I think she has been a great host...even though I only watched her when my mom watched her or when nothing else was on. She is a brilliant business woman. Kudos to her for lasting so long. Although, I can't believe Maury is still on the air! Now get ready for Tyra Banks to pretty much take Oprah's place on daytime talk.

Tyra Banks? Really? Why would you say that? Because Day time/afternoon TV is calamoring for another African-American woman? Just because I'm no fan doesn't mean that I don't see that Oprah just had something special that people could identify with. Tyra has nothing on her.

I agree that Tyra has nothing on Oprah, but...she is doing the same type of show. She has the same kind of audience and the same kind of content. She is the more up and coming talk show host since she's younger and more "hip." Tyra is becoming Oprah, with a modeling career, two tv shows, books and movies. She's definitely not up to par with Oprah but I think she's working very hard towards that goal.
