Oprah’s OWN Is Here!

posted by Nell Minow

An hour a day just is not enough for all that Oprah wants to share with us. Starting today, Oprah takes over the old Discovery Health Channel, now known as OWN — the Oprah Winfrey Network. Some of the programs she has in store for us are very intriguing, especially Miracle Detectives, with a scientist and a believer traveling in search of mysteries and possibly miracles; Master Class, in-depth, intimate conversations with some of the world’s most intriguing, inspiring, and influential people; Kidnapped by the Kids, with workaholic parents captured by their children who feel neglected; Searching For, stories of a woman who helps people track down lost loved ones, and the American Idol-style Your Own Show, selecting a television host from an engaging group of candidates. I’m already rooting for Zach!

What Happened to All the Great Quotable Movie Lines?
Michael Cieply has a fascinating piece in the New York Times about the movie lines we love to quote and why there don't seem to be any new ones. Look through all of the top ten lists of the year, and see if you can think of one quotable line from any of them. That doesn't mean they aren't well wri
