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??
