I may be the only female in the USA who isn’t sad or upset about Oprah ending.
I can honestly say that watching Oprah has not changed my life. It has not inspired me to become a better/worse person. It has not been a motivator to do good/bad in the world. It has not given me hope/despair for the future.
I don’t hate Oprah. I’ll watch Oprah the two times a year I take a sick day.
I can name three times in my life that I watched Oprah on a regular basis, and they are all related to staying home from school/work for a health issue or maternity leave.
Maybe that’s why I’m not upset about Oprah ending. I associate watching the show with pain, misery or sleeplessness. Or seeing Tom Cruise jump up and down on a yellow leather couch.
(Okay…there was that one episode with Bon Jovi that was really good. It actually helped me feel better. You can’t go wrong with those guys.)
I won't be watching the last show (unless I'm sick). And I don't plan on setting the DVR.
It's over, Oprah. Time to put the yellow leather couch on eBay.
