Now that Oprah Winfrey has a TV network all to herself, too perfectly called OWN, she's decided that she needs to share the wealth, and along with producer Mark Burnett, is launching a reality competition called Your Own Show: Oprah's Search for the Next TV Star!
"The landscape and acceptance of ordinary people on television is widely accepted … Much in the way 'American Idol' finds unknown people (to be recording stars) there's no reason we can't find someone who deserves their own show. Try to be authentically yourself. Show energy. Donald Trump gave me the greatest advice with 'The Apprentice': Find people with the greatest energy source … you'll be hard-pressed to show me someone who has their own show on TV who is not energetic and who has charisma."
Sounds pretty inneresting. We wonder if it will take off!
