Oprah Winfrey to return to television with new show

After only a few months of “retirement” from hosting TV, Oprah is poised to return with a new show in an effort to resuscitate her troubled network.

The 57-year-old television personality’s next small screen venture will involve her leaving the studio and visiting celebs at their homes.

“After 25 years I got myself out of the studio chairs. I moved into the next chapter, and I am having more fun than ever – moving around the country and the world talking to people I’m really interested in getting to know and I think viewers will be, too,” Oprah said in a statement.

Oprah’s first episode will air January 1, and apparently feature a visit with Steven Tyler at his home on Lake Sunapee, NH.
