The end of the era is finally here as “The Oprah Winfrey Show” will air its last and final episode Wednesday. As the 25 years of Oprah’s daytime talk show conclude, the big question still remains: Who will win the race to replace her?
Katie Couric is high on the list after leaving “The CBS Evening News” and talks of her hosting her own daytime talk show continue to swirl. While nobody will “replace” Oprah, it’s reasonable to think that a Couric talk show could do very well. Somebody’s going to have to take over that time slot, and Couric is a pretty solid bet to make some noise.
Do you think Katie Couric has what it takes to replace O? Tell me below.
Also on our show tonight…
We have an incredible "Showbiz" Newsmaker interview with comedian and author Adam Carolla, who will sound off on the things that are making us say “That’s Ridiculous!” today.
For example: Donald Trump is now saying he “wouldn’t rule out” a late entry presidential run after announcing just last week that he was NOT running for president. At this point I hope Trump does run just so his opponents can publicly tear him apart and make him pay for wasting so much of our time.
But that's not all "That's Ridiculous": Last night kicked off a new season of “The Bachelorette” as news came out that last season’s “Bachelor” winner Emily Maynard called off her engagement. Since these shows are about finding love and most of the couples don’t end up staying together, are these shows just ridiculous now?
I’m not discounting that it’s possible for people to find true love this way, but think about it. They are television shows and you have got to go in knowing that most of it is just for TV.
See you exclusively tonight at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN!
