Oprah Brings Back “Favorite Things”
Each year around Thanksgiving on her talk show, Oprah passed out gift after gift on the "Favorite Things" episode and sent the audience into a complete frenzy. For us at home, it was an opportunity to get some great gift ideas, and perhaps to be completely jealous of those lucky audience members who would need a mid-sized truck to haul all of their new loot home.
Well guess what! Oprah may not have the talk show anymore, but she does have a network, and she's bringing back the Favorite Things show. And we have a chance to win without leaving the house.
The Favorite Things show this year will air on The Oprah Winfrey Network on Sunday, November 18th in a two-hour live event. And for the first time ever, viewers will have the chance to "text the correct key word to a short code at designated points throughout the premiere airing," according to the press release.
Oprah is very smart. That keeps us from DVR-ing the show. And if anyone can keep us from watching the American Music Awards that same night, it's Oprah.
Oprah, Gayle King, chef Curtis Stone, Michael Kors and Tory Burch will all have a hand in picking the "Things."
Maybe you can win some great electronics and warm fuzzy slippers, and get a few people crossed off your holiday list. OR, keep it for yourself! Good luck.
