So THIS is where they've been hiding! LOLz!
Check out Jimmy Kimmel's very special tribute to Oprah Winfrey's his show last night, which features an even more special version of the classic It's Hard To Say Good-bye from Boyz II Men (above)!
Holy shiz! This is TOO funny!

The first day of Oprah's epic finale brought in the viewers with a 10.0 household rating in metered markets! Wowsa!
To give you an idea of how impressive that is, the show's rating almost DOUBLED her average rating for the week ending on May 8.
You'd think that this would be the highest rated episode of the season yet, but the "'half sister' surprise episode" actually brought in even higher metered market ratings.
We're sure that final episode will beat ratings for the "half sister" episode, though…in fact, we'd imagine that the final episode should pretty much have the highest ratings of any Oprah show EVER!
Are U staying tuned to Oprah's epic finale?

Heartwarming and heartbreaking all at the same time! Such a beautiful performance, we almost started crying ourselves!
Today marks the second to last broadcast EVER of The Oprah Winfrey Show. To commemorate the occasion, Kristin Chenoweth performed the beautiful ballad For Good from Wicked to honor The Big O and all she has done, including raising scholarship money for over 300 students to attend Morehouse College. Those 300 students were also on hand to pay tribute to the woman who provided them the chance of a good education.
Check out the video (above) to see the magnificent performance…and be ready to cry!

Not a celebrity or a politician or a person who found real fame and fortune after meeting the famed talk show host. Oprah Winfrey's all-time favorite guest is a woman, not an average one by any means, but one who, as Oprah puts it "encapsulates the essence of every lesson we’ve shared over the past 25 years."
On Friday's show, the last Friday show ever for Oprah, she revealed that her favorite guest of all time was Dr. Tererai Trent. A Zimbabwean woman who was denied an education all her life, was married at 11, had three children by 18, and whose husband beat her every day. It was her dream to leave her life behind, move to America for an education and earn a PhD. By the time she first appeared on Oprah two years ago, she had accomplished all those things.
As Dr. Trent and Big O regaled about their time together and Dr. Trent's harrowing life story, she revealed to O that her new dream is to build a school in her home of Zimbabwe, so other children could be privy to an education she wasn't. That's when Oprah had her look under her seat (proverbially) and announced she was donating $1.5 million to such a school built!
Trent cried. Oprah cried. The audience cried. The world cried. It was emotional. It was also the last time we'll all ever watch Oprah's show in its truest form. The finale is going to be epic in more ways that one, but this episode was what Oprah built her 25 years on. It was a nice way to go out.

The American public has been anxiously awaiting the announcement of whom the Big O will be hosting as her guests on the upcoming, much-anticipated series finale of The Oprah Winfrey Show, and the first two have just been revealed to be…Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett!
The pair are pretty much known to be two of the talk show queen's favorite guests, so we're not too surprised that they'll be there to say good-bye on May 25th, but we were kind of anticipating a little more of a spectacle!
However, we have a feeling that gurlfriend has some tricks and surprises still up her sleeve, so we're not too concerned!
What do U think The Big O has planned for her last episode??
