Soon She'll OWN You Too

Oprah is getting her own Oprah themed network. I wish I were joking.

The Oprah Winfrey Network, menacingly dubbed OWN, is coming to your TV (probably wrapped in a cashmere throw) in 2009. OWN will replace the Discovery Health Channel, which is currently available in over 65 Million homes.

Oprah gets full control of the content and creative direction of OWN and plans to focus on financial issues, spirituality, relationships and wellness. Essentially it's the magazine...but in HD!

The channel probably won't be any worse than most of the tripe on TV. And Oprah doesn't lend her name to bad stuff; for the most part. I'm reluctantly optimistic.

I bet she swims in a pool of coins like Scrooge McDuck.
