Oprah's Big Announcement
Posted: September 2, 2007
The queen of daytime is taking her show on the road to New York
City this September.
"The Oprah Winfrey Show" will be coming to New York
City to tape the first two shows of her 22nd season, which will
kick-off on Monday, September 10.
There were no more tickets available for the shows after all
tickets were given away via the internet.
Due to overwhelming demand the website tvtickets.com, people
logging on were having difficulties and experiencing extreme
The shows will be taped at the WaMu Theatre at Madison Square
Garden on September 10th. The first will air on September 10th,
the second will air a day later, on September 11th.
It's the first time in 10 years that the show will be returning
to the Big Apple!
So who will be Oprah's first guest of this season? David Letterman!
Letterman will tape the interview, a rare appearance on someone
else's show, on the 10th.
Their reconciliation began in 2005 when Winfrey appeared on
CBS' "Late Show with David Letterman." It was Winfrey's
first guest appearance with Letterman, though she twice appeared
on his NBC show before the comic jumped networks in 1993.
Letterman frequently joked about Winfrey, and she rejected
repeated offers to appear on his program. In 2003, Winfrey told
Time magazine she wouldn't appear with Letterman because she
had been "completely uncomfortable" as the target
of his jokes.
When Winfrey appeared on Letterman's show two years ago, she
told him, "I want you to know, it's really over, whatever
you thought was happening." Letterman responded: "Are
you sure it's over?"
The nationally syndicated show will appear live in some markets
and will be rebroadcast in others, said a spokeswoman for Winfrey's
Chicago-based Harpo Productions Inc. studios.
