So Oprah Winfrey's new network, OWN, is struggling. One of the problems with any network, is when your programming is too narrow. To succeed a network needs greater variety and unique programming. Even "TV Land" a network first featuring reruns of classic TV, is now attempting to put on new and unique shows.

People are going get tired of watching Oprah Winfrey, she will need to consider creating a bit more variety. Some of the daily scheduled programs are reruns of shows ("mystery diagnosis" "Dr Phil" "Miracle Detectives") but it needs a two hour morning program before this "Gayle King Show". The studio could look like a home. Create a game show. Have the weekly book club show. Find some fiction book the was popular after being presented on the show, and create a tv show for it.
