Local News Stations Glad To See The Big O Go!

| Filed under: TV NewsOprah WinfreyBusiness Blitz


This isn't too much of a shocker.

Looks like The Oprah Winfrey Show costs a pretty penny to license and distribute, and local news station are looking forward to when the Queen of talk goes off-air so they can save money!!

A source says:

“Oprah’s ratings have eroded so much that the image of Oprah is much stronger than the reality of Oprah, either as a news lead-in or as a money-maker. In many cases, Oprah is a stunning loss leader. There are people who are deeply thankful she is calling it quits.”

They go on to say that whomever comes in to replace the Big O will be “unlikely to get Oprah-sized ratings but are far cheaper.”

Wow. We can only imagine what kind of licensing fees those stations have to pay to put the show on the air!!

What do U think?? Will U be sad to see Oprah go or do U think it's time for more affordable daytime talk??

    WHY do you think she is calling it quits ? She knows her days are numbered … nothing lasts forever ! And, Oh ! What a time we had !

  2. 2

    She does kinda look like an early '90s Rapper in this photo! 'Dem MoFo'…. Her stage name ? :)

  3. 3

    And, is that her lesbian lover in the background ….? Ya know, 'Gale' …Hmmmmmmmmmm

  4. 4

    I personally couldn't give a spluttery bowel movement if she goes.
    There's already a hugely disproportionate amount of lesbians on TV as it is !!

  5. 5

    Ummmmmmm…… Hellz Ya I will be sad to see Oprah go off the air!!
    I have to admit, that when it is 4 O'Clock (here in Vancouver, BC) I have a date with my couch and Miss Winfrey!
    If I am not home at 4pm…… you better believe it's PVR'ing for me to look forward to watching in the evening when the kids are in bed, and the house is quiet.
    LOVE HER….. and will MISS HER terribly!! She has done so much wonderful for the world!!

    I am Sooooooooooo glad to see her go. Since she got political.. she gives me seriousss.. heart burn!

  7. 7

    O is such a deceitful, psycho-controling freakshow how could anybody be anything but grateful that she takes herself off the radar. Chicago's own Bozo is a vast improvment and automaticly raises honesty in America a full 100%.

    I'm sad it took so long for her to go.I hope she never resurfaces again.

  9. 9

    Oprahs ratings arent nothing to 'harp' about, it's all hype.

  10. 10

    Her time has been past for a while and she has been coasting on her reputation. I can't stand to see her have celebrities on and chit-chat.

  11. 11

  12. 12

    i LIKE O

    I really don't think that any television stations are hurting for money. And if they are, I don't really care.
    Not a big talk show fan, so I'm indifferent to Oprah going off the air. I watch Ellen sometimes, but yeah…

    Orca belongs in a tank at sea world.

    Rosie will PERFECT for daytime. Can't wait until she's back!

    Hey Oprah,
    I can see you're in free fall, from your hand in deceiving America, about what Obama really is. You knew what he and his den of thieves would do.
    I heard you're ghost writing a book for Barack to be titled: “How I Bankrupted the United States of America…………and, made it a second class world power”.
    2012 - Obama/Biden
    "We’ll keep stealing till you make us stop.”

  18. 18

    Don't get too excited guys, she's leaving her show to host her own television network, OWN. I think she's trying to tell us something.

  19. 19

    I found a great club for you________S e e k I n t e r r a c i a l [DOT] c o m________. The best club for seeking the interracial singles, sexy beauties and even hot interracial celebs… I think everyone need to meet some miracle after all the terrible stuff in the news and the economy .You should check it out!!! GGGGGGG

  20. 20

    As much as I loved Oprah in the past, she's gotten way out of touch with reality, too rich and much too full of herself. Time for a change. Nothing lasts for ever.

  21. 21

    Oprah is lovely and the show will be well missed. She has explored things with us that were very worthwhile.

    Okra Withfries need to get her fatass of my tv. Not that I watch her anymore, sometimes she puts me to sleeps late at night.
    Anyways, I'm sick of her and her blah blah blah.

    I don't know if I typed Oprah
    It isn't posting
    but w/eva
    I meant to type

  24. 24

    Cant stand this pagan bitch!

  25. 25

    Oprah was good when she acted like the rest of us. She is now preachy telling us to do sh@#@ she doesn't do.

  26. 26

    I think Bonnie Hunt should replace Oprah! I used to think her show was kind of bad but I went as an audience member and it was funny! Also, after the show she went around and personally thanked each audience member! GO BONNIE!

    Sad to see her go? She's not going anywhere. She's getting her own damn channel. We are sill going to be choking on Oprah all over the place.

  28. 28

    Re: jonasbrothersfanatic – I AGREE. Bonnie Hunt seems so sincere.

  29. 29

    it's whoever - whoever comes…

  30. 30

    AHHH…Americans have finally been awakened and see how mainstream media is a branch of gov't doing their bidding.

  31. 31

    Oprah is cool.

    She's moving on to the Net.

    That way she can do what she likes and cut out some middle men.

    Re: LG is NEW and IMPROVED – Hi LG! MUAH! I have not been on in days. This is my first post! Hope you are well.

    Well Oprah had a good run. And being a lady a lady always know when it's time to go. Best wishes to her.

  33. 33

    Oprah is an icon. She worked hard and made the blessed life she lives in.

  34. 34

    As old as her show is I must have only seen 3 of them. Am i sad to see it go off air? Um… not really.


  35. 35

    Bye-Bye BIG DYKE!!!

    Re: luvstotango

    Oh why don't you just shutup. Frigging repugs - make me sick.

  38. 38

    These groups of local tv stations are still pissed at her for openly endorsing Obama as president, and that's why her ratings are sagging a bit. I want to know who gives a rats ass about these people anyways? They are just a bunch of thuggish Republicans.

  39. 39

    Re: luvstotango – I completely agree. Oprah lost me when she became a shill for Obama. Just like Colin Powell, she went for Obama just because he was half black. Obama is more Jimmie Carter than Jimmie Carter.

    Goodby, Oprah, and good riddence

  40. 40

    I haven't watched Oprah FOR YEARS. Not since she became the self-proclaimed "Queen of the World". My words, not hers. She couldn't have a bigger ego if she tried. I liked her when she was down to earth and I could relate to her. Couldn't care less if she goes away. Good luck to her.

  41. 41

    Re: jonasbrothersfanatic – Bonnie Hunt is HILARIOUS, I agree! Her humor is probably too dry and acerbic for most of the country though.

  42. 42

    I don't understand your Oprah hate, Perez. She supports the gays. She even gave one a show, which is starting this fall. You are always snide about her. Never bite the hand that feeds your kind, Perez. Maybe you're jealous of her billions? Her power? Or the fact that she hasn't legitimized you by having you on her show??

  43. 43

    I will miss the big O. I'm sad to see her show go.

  44. 44

    Yep, it's time for big O to skeedaddle. I just think she's been on way too long and has done it all. I'm sure she has a zillion other things going on in Oprah Land.

    I am sad to see her leave Chicago, since my spouse works for her. She treats employees really well.

  46. 46

    Have ya ever noticed that Oprah GUSHES over the celebs and politicans and does the wet weinie hand shake with the regular folks?

  47. 47

    I will be sad to see her go, the Oprah show is awesum, it definately taught me a lot, but am sooooooooooo excited for her new stuff!! I LOVE Oprah and watch her where ever I am in the world, even here in China. What an incredible inspiring woman she is-LOVE LOVE LOVE her 8-)
