Say It Isn't So- prah!
Yes, it's the moment we've all been waiting for; Oprah Winfrey is going to launch her own TV network! Yay! Ms. Winfrey and Discovery Communications will team up to create OWN, or Oprah Winfrey Network, set to debut in 2009. The daytime yakker will serve as chairwoman of the fledgling network, and will be responsible for "programming, branding, and creative vision". Seeing what a true dud our favorite blabbermouth's venture into satellite radio has turned out to be, I'm thinking the writing is on the wall for this bold television project. How many lame, out of print novels can she recommend on a daily basis; how many weepy subjects that overweight housewives find fascinating can be dissected to fill half hour blocks 24 hours a day, seven days a week? Time will tell. In the meanwhile, instead of destroying your prized boob tube when you want to throw something at it, try tossing a Remote Control Stress Reliever
at it. You'll not only relieve your Oprah-induced stress, you'll spare yourself pricy repair bills!Leave Comment
