The Oprah Winfrey Show - Season 23
Premieres: Monday, September 8, 2008
Creator(s): Oprah Winfrey
Starring: Oprah Winfrey
The Oprah Winfrey Show is a syndicated talk show starring Oprah Winfrey. Oprah has spent more than two decades entertaining Americans with numerous celebrity interviews, chats about books and other “favorite things,” as well as reaching out to people in need and shedding light on major issues going on in this country and around the world.
When the 23rd season premieres, Oprah will feature a “Welcome Home Team U.S.A.” celebration in honor of U.S. Medalists who have returned home from the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Among the featured athletes are Michael Phelps, Dara Torres, Nastia Luikin, Shawn Johnson, Kobe Bryant, Lisa Leslie, Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh. And since it’s Oprah, the show will also feature a number of Olympic stories that we might not have heard about yet.
Oprah has become so ingrained in American culture that it seemed almost unnecessary to have to describe it in the Rundown section above. She’s an inspiration to many people and it seems fitting that this season’s premiere will feature the athletes of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. While the Olympic buzz is dying down now that the games are done and all the medals have been won, it’s nice to see that they’re getting an Oprah-style homecoming. And as much as I am a fan Michael Phelps, I’m interested to hear some of the stories behind the less media-hyped medalists.
