Oprahpalooza: it all ends Wednesday
A few TV critic colleagues have been asking if Oprah's Monday/Tuesday Chicago stadium shows weren't some sort of over-the-top ego trip but I think fans got the send off they expected. You wanted to see Oprah's superstar pals fawning all over her and hear people screaming. I'm just glad Aretha Franklin finally got to the end of that song. Would have liked to see Letterman fly in for a hug but you can't have everything.
