'Oprah Winfrey Show' to say farewell on May 25

Oprah Winfrey has another big announcement to share with the world: the air date of her final show.

After 25 years of groundbreaking programming, Winfrey will wrap up her top-rated "The Oprah Winfrey Show" with its last original episode on May 25, reports People. Reruns of the show will continue in syndication and on the OWN network, which launched in January.

"I love this show," Winfrey has said. "This show has been my life. And I know when it's time to say good-bye. Twenty-five years feels right in my bones and feels right in my spirit."

Though details about the final episode have yet to be revealed, Winfrey has hinted that viewers are in for a treat as the show draws to a close.

"Hard at work planning the final shows," Winfrey tweeted March 24. "Can't wait to share w/ u all!"

"The Oprah Winfrey Show," which is currently airing reruns, will resume with new episodes beginning April 7.

    Today her final list of guests was announced.

    Out of 13 guests, 9 are black.

    Is this falsely revered woman a closet racist? I know many love her, but she is not perfect (no one is).

    Oprah this is a miracle wish that I hope you can make come true. I have a friend and his wife that are in bad health . He has been fighting cancer for 7 years. Loves gospel music. His lifes dream would be to go on Gaithers cruise while he is able. Would have to have 2 cabins because they need assistance.. Also WOULD HAVE TO HAVE FLIGHT SERVICE BECAUSE CAN'T TRAVEL FAR. I have prayed over this and would like for you to do the same. Could get Dr reports or what ever yoy need. thank you Betty Adams 2421 6th way NW Fayette,AL

    Bye Oprah...your best is behind you....way behind. The future looks questionable. These people you have signed up like Jenny and octomom are ...well...not exactly news or entertainment. Retirement for you comes to mind, with grace and dignity as you enjoy your money and good deeds. You have done well but I see murkiness in the future of your new venture. Maybe you need to add Kate G. and Sarah Palin feuding over a man in a mud bath. That would attract attention.

    At one time, I thought Oprah had the ability to show us something new, never seen before, and important. That was the first five years of the Oprah Winfrey Show. Since then, it has been all about her or her "friends and acquaintances" in the business. Good for her (really!) that she turned an opportunity into a gold mine, but I won't miss her and have already blocked OWN from my TV service. I miss the Oprah from 20-25 years ago when who you knew and who you were didn't matter , but the stories were real and compelling.
    Bye bye...about time.

      yes it counts because she feels she will flap. She has grown addicted to the public and the adulation. Her own network will not make ratings and she will drain money before she can bail out. That is the outcome of an overly confident persona. Take your winnings and run would have been a good advise for her.

    Oprah is a fake. If she gave $100,000 to a charity people would say "whoa thats a lot of money, she is a nice person" but in reality $100,000 is pocket change to her. It's not hard for her to do at all. Don't get me wrong, its a good thing she is doing, but her generosity is definitely over-rated. It would be like a normal middle class person giving a dollar to someone. She should take some lessons from Bill Gates.

    buuuhbye .....everything is done for ratings ..ratings equal money and power and to last on the air and not get canceled. Ask yourselves if not foe the past several years had she NOT been giving away generous prizes and giveaways to her audience would she have lasted 25 years on air with as many fans dieing to either get on the show or win one f her sweepstakes . Simple ploy to stack the numbers and boost ratings , a lot of shows do it to spike veiwer ratings and saves from being placed on a possible cancel list to make way for new fresh programming. Don't be to surprised if in this dumbing down of america if it becomes "Move over Oprah its Snooki time" with her own talk show. lol now that's scary

    Oprah has helped so many people–A girl school in South Africa, cars for military wives, trips to Australia for poor people, advice for the mentally ill, etc. Why would anyone want to criticise her.

      They peaked and went down. Oprah has peaked and is now going down. Her new venture will prove to fail, very soon. She should have gracefully retired. The fame and fortune affected her abilities to be rational. She is now going into a state of regret, confusion and doubt. She has not learned to be "happy" on her own. She needs the fix of the public. Too bad.

    All the naysayers are jealous & do I dare say, maybe a bit bigoted. Oprah has been the queen of daytime TV for at least 24 years. She one upped Phil Donahue and showed us great television. Sure she has a big head, but who of us wouldn't if we had her empire? Come on give the girl some credit. She isn't going away and I couldn't be happier for her.

    Grammar Police – Off topic, but I have to congratulate you on pointing the dismal state of our culture's ability to communicate with the language that is supposedly our "cradle language". The one that always gets me is that people cannot tell the difference between "Your" and "You're".

    "Your" is a possessive pronoun denoting ownership such as "Your hair" or "Your bicycle". "You're" is a contraction of the words you and are to shorten a descriptive phrase such as "You are tall" becomes "You're tall".. For some reason, the vast majority of people in forums cannot grasp this.

    Let's take a look at Grammar Police's grammar:

    1. "Accept and except are totally differ, powerfulo is not even a word, and your overall sentence structure is horrid." The word should be different, not differ. And there should be no comma after the word "word."

    2. "Also, as per a Black President cleaning up the mess of a White one, you're showing YOUR ignorance there." The words black, president and white do not get capitalized. Also, "as per" is improper.

    3. "The US has had great White Presidents as well." Again, white and presidents should not be capitalized.

    Complete idiot, and so ashamed of yourself that you had to use someone elses name to make such a stupid and uneducated comment. i am surprised that you can use a computer to make comments, that just goes to show you anyone can learn to type. I am sure you are the famous one finger, peck typer, sitting at home all day eating goverment cheese and drinking twenty five cent kool-aid with no sugar.
