Oprah Winfrey to End the Oprah Show on Sept. 9, 2011

Oprah Will Say Goodbye to Her Talk Show in 2011

If getting a chance to sit in on Oprah is something you've always wanted to do, you'd better start looking into tickets — the queen of daytime talk shows is closing up shop. Winfrey will announce on her show tomorrow that her last episode will air on Sept. 9, 2011. Harpo president Tim Bennett released a statement saying,

"Tomorrow, Oprah will announce live on The Oprah Winfrey Show that she has decided to end what is arguably one of the most popular, influential and enduring programs in television history. The sun will set on the Oprah show as its 25th season draws to a close on September 9, 2011."

Oprah's show has been on the air for as long as I can remember, and while I'm more of a sporadic watcher, it's hard to imagine the television industry without her favorite things and high-profile interviews with A-listers and beyond. What do you make of this news — will you miss Oprah or is it time for her to go?

The only reason why her show is ending is because the network said if she continued the show, she would have to take a pay cut. I think that there are many more topics she could explore on her show and she's being pretty greedy.

I read that she won't be continuing the show on her new network - instead, she'll just be working on developing other shows. Personally, I'll miss it; Oprah might be a little ridiculous sometimes, but her shows were almost always entertaining and informative.

Whoops. I apologize for my comment. I saw the 9 and 2011 and immediately thought it was 9/11. Ignore my's been a long day. I didn't think she would be that rude!

Oh No...! I love Oprah but than again what else is there to talk about!? She has discussed every topic and had almost every headline guest on her show. Maybe it's time pass on the torch, to whom I wonder?

Ok, I might be the only one thinking this, but did she have to pick that date? It seems kind of rude to pick the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
