"The Oprah Winfrey Show," hosted by Oprah Winfrey, the most successful talk show host and producer in the history of television, aired for 25 seasons before going off the air in May, 2011.

In 1984, Oprah Winfrey moved to Chicago to host WLS-TV's morning talk show, "AM Chicago," which became the number one local talk show—surpassing ratings for "Donahue"—just one month after she began. In less than a year, the show expanded to one hour and was renamed "The Oprah Winfrey Show." It entered national syndication in 1986, becoming the highest-rated talk show in television history.

"The Oprah Winfrey Show" has remained the number one talk show for 25 consecutive seasons. Produced by her own production company, Harpo Productions, Inc., the show was seen by an estimated 48 million viewers a week in the United States and was broadcast internationally in 126 countries.
