Those not distracted during last night’s game were probably caught off guard by a commercial that only lasted 15 seconds. David Letterman, Oprah and Leno all on the same couch together? WTF?

According to Late Show producer Rob Burnett, the idea for the promo came from Letterman himself. The shoot, which was done in secret at the Ed Sullivan Theatre, came together quickly within the past two weeks. Sadly, audiences missed on a possible fourth guest.

VIDEO: Tearful Oprah Announces Decision


This is how you make an anti-climatic statement.

After waiting until the very end of today’s broadcast to formally announce her already-leaked decision, Oprah Winfrey offered very little to her audience (aside from tears) that we haven’t already heard. Although she said she wanted to the viewers to hear the message “directly” from her, she never once did end the “conjecture” or “speculation” about her future.

Is it possible the talk show has no idea what she’ll be doing two years from now? Is she simply going to take a break and just go with the flow? Well, considering she’s in the process of starting , that’s highly doubtful. Besides—who’s going to keep Gayle King employed?

You can read Oprah’s full statement after the jump.

Oprah Winfrey and Sarah Palin

Oh what a difference a year makes.

Two of the biggest female names of 2008 will finally be sitting down for a chat in 2009. Mark your calendars: November 16 will be the date has her first one-on-one with Oprah Winfrey.

Before last November’s elections, Oprah - who publicly endorsed - had been accused of showing favoritism because she chose not to welcome the VP candidate on her show. Winfrey’s reason? She didn’t want to use her program as a political platform. (Although President Obama had been a guest on her program, his appearances came before he decided to run for office.) Unfortunately, Oprah’s explanation didn’t satisfy many of her female fans.
