Ready to spend your evenings with Oprah Winfrey?

April 8, 2010 |  7:17 am

Oprah tyler Oprah Winfrey, long the queen of daytime talk shows, is expected Thursday to announce she's heading out after dark, the Wall Street Journal reports.

So, all the fans who've been holding their breath since November -- when it was announced "The Oprah Winfrey Show" would be shuttered Sept. 9, 2011 -- can relax. And then they can immediately start calling the cable company to find out if Oprah's new cable channel, OWN, will be on the menu in time for the new show's debut.

"Oprah's Next Chapter" is expected to air two or three nights a week on OWN; instead of being stuck in a studio, the show reportedly will follow Winfrey around the globe, where she presumably will do whatever the heck she wants to do -- because, you know, she's Oprah.

"I'm going to take viewers with me, going to take celebrities I want to interview with me," Winfrey told the Journal.

"Oprah's Next Chapter" is expected to roll out in late 2011. Will you watch?
