Oprah in Australia

Has anyone watched the Oprah Winfrey show made in Australia? I'll be interested to hear what you think of the way she has presented our country to you.

Don't worry Sandy, of the show that I watched, Oprah didn't do a good or bad job of representing Australia to her viewers. She is rather benign and not as popular as she once was. I watched for Hugh Jackman and that was it, I was glad he wasn't seriously hurt with his zipline stunt though.

I don't watch Oprah unless someone special is on and I wouldn't doubt that her network will fizzle rather quickly. Over the past ten years Oprah has polarized her viewership rather badly. Between her political stance with Obama (she failed to stay neutral on her show...big mistake), her religious and moral superiority lecturing (or at least I see it that way) and her overall change from the everyday gal people could relate to, to the diva she has become she lost many dedicated viewers. Once she finishes her show she will loose most of the influence she once had on peoples opinions. They have been showing (repeatedly the same shows ) a selection of her new programming on one station and in my opinion, her network isn't particularly unique or special to have any sort of staying power. But then I could be wrong...

Australia is and will always be my dream destination to vacation...now to finance it. LOL
