Oprah's realization: ''Oprah viewers don't like repeats'' - and now for the first time you can email Oprah directly too.
Just like South African Oprah viewers, talk show host and now TV network owner Oprah Winfrey says she has discovered viewers - especially Oprah ones - don't like watching repeats.
''What everyone told me about the satellite TV business is the way you do it is you start with a couple of shows, people are used to repeats," Oprah Winfrey told The Hollywood Reporter trade publication.
"Oprah viewers were not!" she says after her Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) TV channel is now two months old. Oprah Winfrey has now for the first time ever signed up for an email address that she herself will check regularly to see what viewers of OWN and Oprah fans are saying, feeling and thinking. People can now email Oprah Winfrey at email@example.com with their thoughts.
The 25th and final season of The Oprah Winfrey Show is still on at 21:30 this week (repeats at 00:30) on SABC3 instead of the usual 17:35. SABC3 released the week's line-up earlier today. Today (Monday) is ''Waiting for Superman follow-up on the American school system''. Tuesday (1 March) is ''Tony Danza, Serena Williams: Celebrities take on their dream jobs''. Wednesday (2 March) is ''The cast of Modern Family''. Thursday (3 March) is ''Aging beautiful: Cybill Shepherd, Dynasty's Linda Evans and Desperate Housewives' Ter Hatcher.''
