Oprah is Out and The Onion is In

In several weeks, according to Deadline Hollywood Daily, Oprah will tell her adoring public that she will be leaving the daytime talk show that she’d been in approximately forever when her current contract runs out.  But fear not, she will not be leaving television forever, she’s just moving to her own network, OWN, probably in mid-2011. Apparently CBS isn’t so sure that this is going to happen, but let the rumor mongering begin.

In far more interesting news, the Onion is partnering with Comedy Central to produce a pilot of a sports news show that will be based on its Sports Network site. Which is exactly what the DailyShow-Colbert Report lineup was missing. As Variety says, “Recent headlines on OSN include “SEC Replay Official Overturns Roe v. Wade” and “Mark McGwire to Teach Cardinal Hitters at What Point in Swing to Evade Congressional Questioning.” We really need that.
