Minnelli to Guest on 'Oprah' in Final Season ~ Sept 21st
As Perez Hilton first revealed, Liza Minnelli, Jon Stewart and Martha Stewart will be among the guests on Oprah's last season this year. Sources tell BroadwayWorld.com that it is indeed true and they are now working on a date for Minnelli's appearance. As of 2010, The Oprah Winfrey Show is the longest-running daytime television talk show in the United States, having run nationally since September 8, 1986, for over 24 seasons and nearly 5,000 episodes. On November 19, 2009, Oprah Winfrey's Production Company announced that the show will be ending on September 9, 2011.
After 28,000 guests, Oprah is saying goodbye to The Oprah Winfrey Show, but not goodbye to what she loves to do. As part of her OWN network, in Oprah's Next Chapter she'll have more riveting conversations with the people we all want to hear from, in some very unexpected places. Oprah's getting untethered from the chairs, opening up her world and taking you with her. From the Taj Mahal to her beloved oak tree, the Great Wall to her own teahouse, it's a whole new kind of Oprah show. If she can dream it, she'll do it! This one-hour regular series is produced by Harpo Studios.
