After 25 Years Of The Show, Gatta-Go, Gatta-Go

After 25 years of being all in the business "Oprah Winfrey" is folding up her tent and leaving the parking lot. Sept. 2011 will be the last month that her show will air, and you'll have to catch her from now on in re-runs or on her "O" magazine. "Oprah" started as a local Chicago morning program, the production evolved into television's top-rated talk show for more than two decades, airing in 145 countries worldwide and watched by an estimated 42 million viewers a week in the U.S. alone.

"The Oprah Winfrey Show," which has seen ratings slip 7 percent from a year ago, will not move to cable television. "Winfrey" who is 55, is widely expected to start up a new talk show on OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network, a much-delayed joint venture with Discovery Communications Inc. that is projected to debut in 2011. OWN is to replace the Discovery Health Channel and will debut in some 74 million homes.

Maybe now Steadman will marry her? Doubt it.
