What’s next for Oprah Winfrey?


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Oprah Winfrey concludes her daytime talk show after 25 years of near dominance. There will be a two-part, celebrity-fuelled extravaganza that airs later this week. The program draws to a close on Wednesday.

But that has many pundits wondering, “What’s next?”

Well, reruns, for starters. The program will air repeats through the summer, helping fans overcome from Oprah withdrawal. But ABC News does a good job of breaking down the heir apparents to Winfrey’s crown (if there ever can be one).

“The closest thing to an heir apparent seems to be ‘Dr. Oz,’ the Winfrey-produced talk show whose star, Dr. Mehmet Oz, one of Winfrey’s protégés,” they report. “In many markets he’s being rewarded with the 4 p.m. slot where ‘Oprah’ reigned for so long. But there is no clear consensus. In a few markets, the former “Oprah” station will forgo any syndicated replacement and instead launch an added hour of local news.

“In short, these are big shoes to fill as Oprah Winfrey walks away,” they conclude.

What do you think? Can anyone replace Oprah, or was she a once-in-a-lifetime media phenom?
