25 August 2016 4:35 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Five years have passed since Oprah Winfrey said goodbye to The Oprah Winfrey Show, but the veteran talk show host admits she sometimes wishes she had the platform back to discuss today's most pressing news stories, including the 2016 presidential election. "The first time that happened was with [Jerry Sandusky]", Winfrey tells Entertainment Weekly, referring to the late Penn State football coach who was convicted in 2012 on multiple accounts of sexually abusing children. "I thought, 'If only I had a show, I would be able to [talk] about it,' " the 62-year-old continued, adding, "Many times during this election, I thought, 'If only I had this show, »

TLC Boss Says Creating Scripted TV Series With Tyler Perry Was ‘No Brainer’

17 August 2016 11:14 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Family, faith, and forgiveness is the theme of Tyler Perry’s newest show and TLC’s first-ever scripted series, “Too Close to Home.”

The writer-creator spoke to Variety about moving away from his Own shows — “If Loving You Is Wrong,” “Love Thy Neighbor,” and “The Have and Have Nots” — to TLC, noting that Discovery owns part of Own so there was no major jump between networks, or bad blood.

Perry stated, “I got a call from [Discovery Communications CEO] David Zaslav saying, ‘Hey, how can we do this together with TLC?’ He, Oprah, and myself talked about it and we’re very excited about it, so here we are!”

Too Close to Home” tells the story of a young woman who tries to escape her low-income lifestyle in a trailer park by fleeing to Capitol Hill, and interning at the White House. The main character, Anna, soon finds herself in the middle of a major political scandal involving the President »

"Weight Watchers called me in like mid-July," she told Ellen DeGeneres. "We had our first meeting in August and they said, 'We would like you »

Harry Connick Jr. on New Talk Show: ‘We’re Not Going to Play Games’

3 August 2016 11:09 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Harry Connick Jr.’s new NBCUniversal-produced daytime show will feature many of the trappings of a traditional talker — a live band, celebrity interviews. But what’s also notable is what it won’t have.

“We’re not going to play games,” Connick said of his guests Wednesday at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour. “I’m not going to put them in dunk tanks.”

Connick has been a staple guest on late-night and daytime talkers for years. In his new show, “Harry,” which was picked up last in October to run on 17 Fox-owned stations nationwide, Connick will work with executive producers Eric and Justin Stangel, former head writers for CBS’ “Late Show With David Letterman.”

“I’ve been up there with just about everybody, and there are people who I consider to be the best in the business,” Connick said. “I think Dave Letterman, as far as a person who would ask questions and interact »

Jimmy Fallon a change in direction for Golden Globes hosting gig

2 August 2016 1:10 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

After Ricky Gervais’s snark, the Tonight Show guru’s enthusiastic earnestness and collaborative spirit will create a new mood for the awards show

Hosting an awards show is always a thankless gig. If it goes well, hardly anyone remembers, but if it goes poorly the host will be trying to live it down for the rest of his (unfortunately it’s almost always a dude) career. Just ask David Letterman what he thinks of that Uma/Oprah joke.

Pretty soon, Jimmy Fallon will be either the goat or the glory of Hollywood. He has been tapped as host of the 2017 Golden Globes, traditionally held in January at the start of awards season.

The Underground Railroad Review: Oprah's Newest Book Club Pick Is 'Tense, Graphic, Uplifting and Informed'

2 August 2016 5:50 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Slavery in America: It's a horrific, mesmerizing subject that haunts and inspires our imagination. It won't let go. And brilliant artists help us re-imagine it, over and over again. Think Toni Morrison (Beloved), Alex Haley (Roots); think 12 Years a Slave. Now here comes Colson Whitehead (bestselling author of Zone One and Sag Harbor) and with an extraordinary new take: What if the Underground Railroad physically existed - as a vast labyrinth of secret tunnels that ran north right under the noses of slave-owners and slave-catchers? That's the conceit of The Underground Railroad, an electrifying novel just announced as Oprah's newest Book Club pick. »
