Oprah Winfrey will be making her return to television with a “small screen venture” where she will visit celebrities at his or her homes. The first episode, featuring Stephen Tyler, will air January 1 on her network OWN!
“After 25 years I got myself out of the studio chairs. I moved into the next chapter, and I am having more fun than ever – moving around the country and the world talking to people I’m really interested in getting to know and I think viewers will be, too,” said Oprah.
The OWN network has been struggling to find a recipe for success since its launch in 2010. Oprah’s return to the screen comes after much speculation that the Queen of Daytime TV would have to use her own star power to boost the network’s lackluster ratings.
