Oprah Winfrey stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and delivered the funny! Oprah chatted up Jimmy Kimmel last night as his special post-Oscars headlining guest. After shamelessly begging her for years to come on his show, she finally accepted. Perhaps, it’s due to low ratings on OWN but either way Lady O was a blast to see on another platform. Even though she told Jimmy she had standards until deciding to appear on his show.
Kimmel then ran a number of clever sketches of programs that he’d pitched to Winfrey for her new OWN network, which included a show where the former daytime host steals back all of the “favorite things” she’d given to her audience over the years, an interview show where Kimmel and Winfrey simultaneously interview guests, speaking over one another, and “Oprah’s Book Club Fight Club,” where the host would attack those who question her interpretations of the books.
