Oprah to Star in New Show to Save Her Cable Network

Oprah Winfrey is returning to the air in a new show called 'Oprah's Next Chapter' to be broadcast on her OWN network.

The series, which is set to début in January, will show Oprah meeting, chatting and endlessly glorifying fellow celebrities in their homes.

The two-hour première will feature Winfrey with Aerosmith front man and American Idol judge Steven Tyler at his family home in New Hampshire.

Tyler will discuss his drug addiction, his love life and his new-found fame on American Idol, OWN said in a statement released on Friday.

When Winfrey ended her iconic chat show after 25 years, she said her role at OWN would be strictly behind the cameras. However, the ratings at OWN have been so bad that Oprah is stepping in front of the cameras once again.

Her new show will also include an interview with Oscar winning actor Senn Penn about the recovery efforts in Haiti from the 2010 earthquake and a tour of Skywalker Ranch with Star Wars creator George Lucas.

In the OWN statement Oprah said: "After 25 years I got myself out of the studio chairs. I moved into the next chapter, and I am having more fun than ever -- moving around the country and the world talking to people I'm really interested in getting to know and I think viewers will be, too."
