Oprah's Swan Song

oprah.jpgOprah Winfrey's making headlines again. But this time, the news isn't about her latest interview. The news is about the fate of her own show.

Today, Oprah made it official. Her daily show will wrap in 2011 after 25 years of talking to some of the biggest names around, from vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin to the couch-jumping Tom Cruise.
 
Her show has twice the viewers of her nearest competition and immeasurable influence.  And she's is widely credited with helping to make Barack Obama President... not just because he went on her show, but because she campaigned with him.
 
Oprah has redefined how TV can surprise. She once gave all the members of her studio audience a car. That move may have cost her seven million dollars. But that's peanuts for someone worth almost three billion.
 
Clearly the woman knows how to put on a show. Her finale will likely be her biggest production yet. And that raises an interesting question: who will be the final guest?
 
We've been debating that very topic around the office today. We all have an opinion. But we'd like to hear yours.  So let us know what you think by posting a comment.
