The Oprah Winfrey Show
The Oprah Winfrey Show (September 6, 1985-Present) is the longest-running daytime television talk show in the United States, and is hosted, produced and owned by Oprah Winfrey. The show was local in the Chicago area until it debuted nationally in 1986.
It runs the gamut from gossip to entertainment to health, frequently turning to personal revelations on the part of the host. One feature of the show, Oprah's Book Club made bestsellers of a number of novels and other works, including books by such writers as Isabel Allende, Joyce Carol Oates, and Toni Morrison. For several years the show featured segments hosted by Dr. Philip McGraw.
