WLS will keep Oprah at 11:05 through September. After that, I'm hearing they will rebroadcast Windy City LIVE at night, though I'm not sure if it will run before or after Jimmy Kimmel.

Well I cried during the last show. I thought it was very moving. Hate on me!

LOL, well she didn't hold back in that interview at least. I'm not even going to lie as if I'm an expert on hard hitting interviews at all.

Isn't there a fine line between asking a question that makes the interviewee get up and leave and getting the good info?

She had the unique ability to turn people that I liked (Will Smith) into complete douche bags with her kiss ass interview style.

Interviews don't turn people into douchebags who aren't inclined to be douchebags already.

She really did evolve into classy shows like the recent one with Chaz Bono, Professional Lesbian Transexual.

I'm pretty sure Will Smith was a douchebag to begin with.

Probably so but it wasn't as in your face as it was on Oprah.

It was the mid 80's and blacks were being seen as mainstream now by white America. Everything blacks were doing was something white America would like. Then rap/hip-hop came along slowly and big in the 90's and that set blacks to where they are now with main stream white America.

You mean the final show of the final show? You sure that was it, or just a preview of the final show?

Proud to say I have never watched a complete episode of her dreck. And what I did see was attributable to some very unfortunate channel surfing. I even deleted her new channel from my TV. Same goes for her "proteges".

She's a classic narcissist.

Yet, you not only clicked on a thread about her, but felt compelled to comment as well. Hmmmmm...

I like how people love to hurl names at Oprah but don't proceed to explain their reasons for said insults. Especially ones that claim to have never seen her show Oh the hypocrisy

Yes you're so sure, because you know him personally, right?
