OWN, Oprah Winfrey’s network, announced an Oct. 10 premiere date for its new nightly Rosie O’Donnell talk show The Rosie Show and OWN Your Life: The Oprah Class. Rosie will air weeknights at 7, OWN Your Life at 8. The latter will feature Winfrey using her library of 4,561 shows as “a teaching tool” to viewers to help them improve their lives, as she said in making a semi-surprise appearance today during the network’s TCA summer press tour session at the Beverly Hilton to introduce O’Donnell. “We’re repackaging the shows to use them as the world’s biggest classroom,” she said.
