The Oprah Winfrey Show
One of the most known and renowned shows in history popularly known as “The Oprah Winfrey Show” hosted by the strongest women known “Oprah Winfrey” is a grand American daytime talk show. It was aired for over 25 seasons from Sept 8, 1986, to May 25, 2011, in Chicago. The Oprah Winfrey Show was one of the highest-rated talk shows in the American history of televisions. Well, no matter how illustrious and exalted this show was, there will always be an abominable past of this, which helped it in reaching heights of success in a matter of a few months.
Before this huge turn took place let me be clear with this, Oprah was never a simple lady, she’s suffered a lot, and when I say a lot, I mean it. According to some sources, we get to know that Winfrey was born in poverty in Mississippi, she was molested during her childhood and was pregnant at the age of 14, her son died as it took birth in the premature stage which broke Oprah’s heart. The only reason I love Oprah is she’s steel-hearted and made it to this show bravely. She started with an A.M Chicago talking show that aired on WLS TV. After some years an ABC owned its station and operated it. As a result, Oprah hosted it on January 2, 1984, and in a number of days, it took the show from lowest rating to the highest rating show in local Chicago ratings.
This humongous show was directed by Joseph C. Terry, the total number of its episodes was about 4561 and also, its running time was from 40-45 minutes. Well, sadly “The Oprah Winfrey Show” all over half-dozen years past when twenty-five years on-air and Oprah aforesaid that the rationale she thought she ought to finish this show was folks showed no bigger interest in wakening at 4’o clock in the morning to watch her show so she thought of taking it digitally so that people could watch the episodes whenever they want to, backing up with fact that she quitted, Oprah still made it to the list of 500 richest people in the world. She is also the first black entrepreneur to be on this list. Since January 1, her net worth is extended over $420 million and today $4.20 billion.
The Ellen DeGeneres Show
The Ellen DeGeneres Show is a daytime talk show often loved by its audience. This glorious show is hosted by another strong lady “Ellen” mostly known for her exalted show and her amazing sense of humor. The Ellen DeGeneres show is no less than that of Oprah Winfrey’s show, both struggled equally and offered us these amazing talk shows which wrote their names in history, referring to Ellen, Ellen’s show made its debut on September 8, 2003, where it was produced by Telepictures and was aired in syndication. When I talk about the number of awards it received, I’m no longer in shock why people love watching this phenomenal show. The show had received 171 Daytime Emmy awards in nominations and also made its venue in daytime Emmy awards by winning 61 of them It conjointly won seven for Outstanding program surpassing the record command by The Oprah Winfrey show that in former won 9.
This show is hilariously funny as DeGeneres includes all sorts of public interaction which in furtherance kept their audience interested, this show is an all-together pack of comedy, celebrities, guests, and alluring human-interest stories. The thing I love the most regarding this show is the “The Riff Raff room” that is created for those people that were unfortunately not taken in the audience seat due to the crowd it had, and so this offshoot space was created in their concern, it is dubbed by Tom Hanks and is also featured to give the audience 15 minutes of fame in a sense that they don’t feel ignored or inferior to others.
Here are some of the segments that occur throughout the year – Oh Hair No! Know or Go, Clumsy Thumbsy, Oh Puh-lice, Tony karaoke, Ellen’s Dance dare, Vine after Vine, Chat time with Ellen! and many more. The show also includes games like “Heads up” which later emerged as a game app played all over the world, and this game was often played with different celebrities and a better engagement between Ellen and the other occurs which captivates different eyes towards it.
And here I am, getting tangled up between the fact that who’s the best one, Queen Oprah or Queen Ellen?
To be honest I love both the ladies but when I’m asked a question, I’ll choose Ellen over Queen Oprah because I found out that Oprah’s show was way too serious about things and humor is the main focus in Ellen’s show. So, I’ll choose Ellen, and even if I chose Ellen that just doesn’t mean that Oprah in any way or other less than Ellen, Oprah has struggled a lot and also has billions of admirers across the world (including me). Coming back to Ellen, she’s way funnier and her shows look even more awesome with different segments and episodes where she always tries to show us something new, unfortunately, due to this covid-19 pandemic, she previously announced that the shooting of the show won’t take place as to ensure the safety of the fans, staff and crew members.
However, Ellen and Oprah both are respected women’s and both have been called “philanthropists” (One who helps the needy). They have donated huge amounts of money for the welfare of poor peoples. Oprah has given over $400 million to different charities and has also helped children by building schools for them in Africa. Ellen did the same but went a little far as she preferred working with the people that brought publicity to them, she has also helped a school in Philadelphia by donating $100,000 that would help them their entire life.
“Earning money isn’t great but spending it for someone who needs it, is” – These ladies made sense to this line, no matter how famous and great they became, they were still down- to – earth and helped every kid and person that needed support. Both dropped out of college and still made it to the power where they built their empire which is known all over the world today.
