I was so excited to be offered the chance to preview the first episode of Your OWN Show: Oprah's search for the next TV Star.
The show actually airs this Friday, January 7,2011. However, I was able to watch the first episode today, and it is just great!
It is a blend of the apprentice, and the skills and team concepts that they need, and the Oprah Show and all of the coolness that it has.
Now, I know, I know. It's NOT the Oprah Show. Yes, it's a reality show. But, it's real people aspiring to be a Talk Show Host.
It's real people with real families and real goals and dreams and talents.
I like it. I like the concept. I like the challenges. I like the whole thing!
It was a great episode, and I am sure that it will inspire people to tune in weekly as these real-life people compete and dream their way to being the Next TV Star!
Now, you know I am a fan of the stay at home mom, and I absolutely LOVE the looks on their faces when Oprah walks in for the first time. You can tell that they are fans of hers, and just shocked when they see her for the first time....it's like a "on my TV.in my living room.but really here in the studio.experience!!!! Very cool. *um, I know the feeling*
***And, one of the VERY best parts.....because it was a sneak preview...straight from the production crew....it was COMMERCIAL FREE!!! No ads, no spam, no nothing!!! Yahoo!!!!
