The Oprah Winfrey Show began in 1983 when Oprah took over for a low rating talk show, AM Chicago.  Within six months, the talk show went from one the lowest ranks to number one, surpassing Donahue ratings.  In 1986 the show was then renamed The Oprah Winfrey Show and extended to one hour long.

From the start, many people doubted the success of Oprah's talkshow as she was a Black woman working against mostly white male talk show hosts.  In the 22 years her talk show has aired, she has accomplished a lot - including hosting an interview with Michael Jackson which clocked in the fourth most watched TV event and the most watched TV interview ever with over one hundred million voters.

The Oprah Winfrey show covers a various number of topics from ordinary people who have done extraordinary things to issues in the environment which affect us all.

I know I love a lot of bad reality TV (The Hills..... haha), but Oprah is truly one of my all time favorite shows.. and people.  She covers such a BROAD range of topics and she really cares.  Honestly I learn so much from watching any of her shows.... even when she has actors/actresses.  Normally I'd have to say that guest actor/actresses on talk shows result in gossip talk.. but somehow Oprah manages to ask them questions that matter - questions that make you seem them in a different …
