Big "O" Heads Back to TV in January with “Oprah’s Next Chapter”

We knew she couldn't stay away for long, although Oprah left day time television, many felt that they could fill the void with shows from her fairly new network OWN. While there are great shows on OWN, including one of my favorites Oprah’s Lifeclass, ratings haven’t been as great as one would think. Well, things are about to change at OWN because Oprah’s coming back to TV to give everyone the fix they’ve been missing. Yes, you heard correct – Oprah’s back!

On January 1, 2012 Oprah’s Next Chapter will debut on OWN in a 2-hour premier event. After a 7-month hiatus from TV, we’ll get to see Oprah like we’ve never seen her before. Instead of filming live with a studio audience, she’ll be traveling the world interviewing, mingling, and breaking bread with all types of people including newsmakers, real-life families and celebrities such as Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler who will be in the premier episode. During the season we’ll see her journey to Haiti 2 years after a devastating earthquake took the lives of so many and have slumber party with Food Network favorite Paula Deen.

Sneak Peek Below:
Here’s a first look at Oprah’s new series, Oprah’s Next Chapter. Tune in January 1, 2012, for a two-hour premiere event from 9-11 p.m. ET/PT, only on OWN!

J.R. Martinez beats out Rob Kardashian, wins 'DWTS' Season 13

J.R. Martinez may not have out-shaken his bon-bon next to Rob Kardashian's plentiful derriere, but the Iraq war veteran and actor capped off a solid season on the dance floor with a victory that will likely make his just as much of a household name.
Make no mistake about it, the dance floor belonged to the troops on Tuesday night's emotional, surprising season 13 finale of "Dancing With the Stars."

"First and foremost, I want to thank the viewers who voted for us for 10 weeks," a glowing Martinez said shortly after being announced winner.

"Thank you, America, for believing in us," he continued before turning to thank his partner, dancer Karina Smirnoff. "You are amazing, and I'm so glad I could be a part of your first mirror ball."

"You are such a catalyst for joy," judge Carrie Ann Inaba remarked.
This is the first first-place finish for recently engaged Smirnoff, who put off her wedding plans earlier this year to focus on the dancing competition.
