Oprah to Revamp Her Talk Show for OWN

Could this be a last-ditch effort to save the struggling network?

Published July 29, 2011

Guess that grand farewell was premature? In what could be a Hail Mary pass to save her sinking network OWN, Oprah is bringing back her long-running daytime talkshow, The Oprah Winfrey Show, repackaged as a "classroom" to help viewers improve their lives. The show, titled Own Your Life, will air weekday evenings starting October 10.

"At Oprah's core, she is a teacher," OWN president Sheri Salata said, announcing that the show will have a companion online course. Viewers can sign up "to reserve their spot" in class starting Friday at Oprah.com.

So, Oprah's solution to save her failing network is to…assign homework?
