Last night, Drew Barrymore‘s one-on-one interview with Oprah on Oprah’s Next Chapter took place, talking about her new baby, her husband, and her colorful past. The interview was done at Barrymore’s California home where Oprah asked her how she knows how to parent when she didn’t have a good example growing up. Drew explains how her tumultuous childhood is a great blueprint for righting the wrongs of her past.

Also in the episode, Drew Barrymore’s husband, Will Kopelman had his first television interview ever. The handsome art consultant talked about how he proposed to Barrymore, why he loves her so much, and more. He even shares how he found out she was pregnant. Their new baby was born on September 26, 2012, and the baby’s name is, Olive Barrymore Kopelman.

Get to know Kopleman in the video of the interview below. I’ve also included several other clips from last night’s episode as well.

Whether you love or hate the addition of Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban, the Season 12 makeover of American Idol seems to be working. While the season premiere was down 19% from the previous year, the second telecast gave the veteran reality show some glimmer of hope. When compared to last year’s second episode, last night’s show was only down an astonishing 2%. Truly impressive given the ratings slide the show has experienced the past several years.

Also worth mentioning is the fact the Thursday airing was only off 7% from the Wednesday show. Typically, the second night ratings have dropped at least 20% since Idol’s ratings started plunging in 2008. As a side note, American Idol‘s premiere week numbers in the key demo is besting the recent third season of The Voice by 41%- a 5.8 adults rating vs. a 4.1.

The tension between Carey and Minaj seems to be paying off in stabilizing ratings and generating watercooler buzz. If you’ve read my two recaps, you know I’m still a fan of American Idol and the changes this year, especially Keith Urban’s addition. The true test for Idol’s Thursday night episodes will be when The Big Bang Theory returns next week (last night was a rerun). Lately, the CBS sitcom has been on a ratings tear, achieving series highs the past two weeks. Now onto last night’s highly-anticipated Oprah interview.

In a one-on-one interview, cyclist Lance Armstrong spoke exclusively with Oprah Winfrey in his first interview since he was stripped of his Tour de France titles. In the interview, he addresses the alleged doping scandal, years of accusations of cheating and the use of performance-enhancing drugs throughout his career. Late last year, he resigned as chairman of the foundation he created, Livestrong, which has raised hundreds of millions of dollars in the fight against cancer.

The ‘no holds barred” interview is a special two-night even that airs on Thursday, January 17 and Friday, January 18 at 9pm ET/PT on OWN. It will also be simultaneously streamed live worldwide on Oprah.com. Check out the preview below.

In a new parody by Eliot Glazer, Oprah Winfrey attempts to draw in new viewers to her fledgling network, OWN, by reenacting classic viral videos in the hope of reaching a new audience.

Some examples of the trends the faux Oprah Winfrey (and her faux sidekick Gayle King) take on include: Shit Oprah Says, Leave Oprah Alone, Planking, and many more. One of my favorite one was Oprah’s take on Flash Mobs. I don’t even want to give away what she does, but it’s perfect.

This is the first video in a new series called Eliot’s Sketch Pad. Can’t wait to see what the comedian comes up with next. Enjoy the video below!

David Letterman Opens Up To Oprah Winfrey

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Oprah’s Next Chapter has been hit or miss at times for me. For every Rihanna interview, there’s a ridiculous comment comparing Justin Bieber to The Beatles. Regardless of quality inconsistency with her chats, there is no denying Oprah Winfrey’s increased onscreen presence on OWN has reignited the network which has consistently seen month-to-month ratings increases. There is no doubt that momentum will continue when her chat with David Letterman airs on January 6, 2013. Boffo ratings will definitely result.

Everyone likes to think that the Letterman-Winfrey feud began at the Academy Awards when the late night talk show famously bombed on a joke introducing Oprah to Uma Thurman. While horrible, I highly doubt a 16 year feud resulted from that. Legend has it that it began when Letterman and his girlfriend decided to skip out on a bill, tricking the waiter into thinking Oprah agreed to pay it. LOL. Whatever the reason it began, it continued until a little thing called the Super Bowl brought them together.

In 2007, the duo appeared on a couch wearing Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Bears jerseys. Soon after that, the two appeared on each other’s respective talk shows. Most recently, Winfrey sat down with Letterman for his Distinguished Professional Lecture and Workshop Series at Ball State University. Now, the two are once again sitting down. This time on Oprah’s turf. Check out the preview below along with what they’re reportedly chatting about. It’s good.

On Sunday, November 25 on Oprah’s Next Chapter, global superstar Justin Bieber, who took away more trophies than anyone else last night at the American Music Awards, sits down with Oprah Winfrey in a one-on-one interview.

Some clips from the interview have been released, including Oprah and Bieber talking about Selena Gomez, shopping, and how he deals with the fame. Oprah is really building this one up, saying, “In 1993, I did an interview that went live around the world within 24 hours with Michael Jackson. Not since then have I done an interview like this…with Justin Bieber. Justin Bieber is a phenomenon for our time. And just like Elvis Presley, and just like The Beatles and also like Michael Jackson, he has millions of screaming fans all over the world who adore him.”

The episode will air in more than 100 countries worldwide premiering on Sunday, November 25 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on OWN. Get your first look at the interview below.

You think you know everything about Justin Bieber? Think again. One of the world’s favorite interviewers, Oprah Winfrey literally just finished her sit down chat with one of the world’s biggest popstars along with his famed manager, Scooter Braun. After pictures started appearing on Instragram via Scooter and Justin, it was quickly confirmed that both had joined Oprah for an episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter.

Yesterday, Oprah was a special guest on Good Morning America and gave the viewers a sneak preview of what to expect during her sit down with the Biebs. Oprah took Justin to her favorite restaurant in Chicago for a meal and afterwards, the two hit Ralph Lauren to doing a little shopping. Justin also serenaded the crowd outside the restaurant. Justin’s episode will debut on November 24th worldwide- Oprah’s biggest television broadcast since Michael Jackson in 1993. First look preview below.

This coming Sunday, a new episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter with air and this time her celebrity one on one is with Black Eyed Peas singer and multi-platinum solo artist Fergie. A while back, the first preview came out and we got a taste of what to expect, with Fergie talking about her past drug use, career, and what it was like going through the rumours that Josh Duhamel had cheated on her with a stripper.

Now some extended clips have been revealed from the episode where we see a little more of what to expect. In one of the clips below, you actually see her reaction to Oprah Winfrey when she asks her about the cheating rumor and how it affected their relationship. In another clip, we learn what Duhamel says he loves about his wife. Of course he loves watching Fergie, perform onstage—but that’s not what has kept their nine-year relationship strong. He Josh shares a side of Fergie the world doesn’t get to see. Fergie also talks about the yin and the yang of her working relationship with BEP front man will.i.am. and why she calls him her “work husband”.
