'The Oprah Winfrey Show'

After 25 years of celebrity interviews, book club picks and lavish audience giveaways, talk-show host Oprah Winfrey broadcast her last episode in May 2011. Winfrey's guests included Liberace, shortly before he died, and Tom Cruise in a memorable couch-jumping episode. But her 1993 interview with Michael Jackson became the show's highest-rated episode. The influential Oprah's Book Club pushed obscure titles onto bestseller lists but also caused controversy when James Frey, above, admitted fabricating parts of his memoir, a book club pick.
