Oprah's Big Announcement

Posted: September 2, 2007
Oprah Winfrey

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 technical slowness.

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.
