Oprah Farewell Season Premiere (Video)

September 13, 2010

Oprah begins her farewell season this week as longtime viewers prepare to bid the undisputed queen of daytime talk “adieu.” Find out what you can expect from her final season here.

I suppose once you have broken through the ceiling the sky is the limit. Oprah did just that, smashing through the ratings records, and building a mammoth media empire as viewers journeyed through over 4,000 episodes over the years.

But can she find a way to top the “you get a car, you get a car, you get a car…” antics?

That remains to be seen, but fans are buckling up for a memorable first episode, in a season that will mark the end an era in daytime television.

USA Today reports that while there is no indication of any car giveaways, we are being promised a “surprise.” There are also apparently some murmurs that “dreams will come true” for a few fortunate viewers in an opener that producers say will “knick your socks off.” What that means is anybody’s guess, but given the show’s history, it’s safe to say it could be spectacular.

As for her feelings about the farewell season, Oprah told TV Guide:

“I don’t intend to be crying the whole season…The only time I get really emotional and nostalgic about the show is when I think about the viewers.”

Following this season there will be a noticeable gap in most 4PM time slots as stations ramp up for the evening news. Program directors will be left wondering what to do with the slot that has been O’s for so long.

But before you let a tear work its way down your cheek—consider this. She isn’t disappearing or anything. In fact, the billionaire media giant is simply starting her very own network; ‘The Oprah Winfrey Network.’

Check out some the Oprah farewell season premiere video below. What are your thoughts?
