Comeback??? Oprah Winfrey Makes One Last Desperate Attempt To Gain Viewers For Her OWN Network

- By Bossip Staff

Oprah just can’t seem to get right with this OWN thing.

Oprah Winfrey is taking another crack at getting her OWN TV project off of life support.

She’s now headed back on the air with a new show called Oprah’s Next Chapter that will premiere in January.

When Winfrey shut down her iconic chat show after 25 years, she said at the time her role going forward would be strictly behind the cameras for her new network. But the results at OWN have been so disappointing, she had to try something new.

Oprah’s Next Chapter will have Winfrey visit Steven Tyler at his New Hampshire home, travel to Haiti with Sean Penn nearly two years after the earthquake, and have a slumber party at Paula Deen’s Georgia estate.

Nothing has yet been announced about what to do with Rosie O’Donnell’s struggling show on OWN. Introduced with great fanfare, the series had 497,000 viewers when it premiered October 10. It is now under 200,000.

No wonder even Oprah’s best friend Gayle King has jumped ship! She’s shuttered her OWN talk show and is moving to CBS where she’s co-host The Early Show.

We’re not sold that this lil’ stunt will work, but we don’t wish any evil on ol’ Harpo.

    All the money in the world can’t make folks like you,or your brand forever.

    I love Oprah, but she has some wack shows on her network. I know that she wants it to be positive and uplifting, but it’s just boring. It seems geared to much older people.
