Would you watch a late night talk show hosted by The Diva of Daytime?
O “OWNS” The Night! Oprah’s not ready to say goodbye to the small screen just yet.
On Thursday, The Queen of Talk announced that she’ll host an evening talk show on her new cable network (OWN) called Oprah’s Next Chapter.

Larry King, you’ve been put on notice!
The plan is for the show to see Winfrey travel around the globe to meet with her subjects. “I’m going to take viewers with me, going to take celebrities I want to interview with me around the world,” O told the WSJ.
The Oprah Winfrey Network — which will also feature a daytime talk show hosted by Jenny McCarthy and a docusoap staring country starlet Shania Twain — is set to hit the air on January 1, 2011. The network is a joint venture between Winfrey’s Harpo Inc. and Discovery Communications Inc.
