OWN - Programming that I would LOVE to see

The sad news came a few days ago that Oprah axed the Rosie show from her OWN network.  I have to admit, I only watched a couple of the shows that featured the studio audience and was less than impressed with it.  But, then I watched the one on one interviews and found them to be MUCH more entertaining.  It's a shame really...Rosie can be a great gabber but somewhere along the way she's lost HER way.

Now, I'm not saying that Oprah has all the answers and that her channel doesn't have some programming that needs to be addressed...but, the programming that is in place is quality.  For example, I love Super Soul Sunday.  The laid back feel, the nature backdrop and lofty subjects is perfect for Sundays.

My next favorite series is "Master Class".  I would LOVE to see Shirley MacLaine do a series of these...My God woman, give her a show on your network.  "Out on a Limb" was only the beginning and it would be interesting to see her offerings that she has compiled over the years.

There is also one show series that I think everyone would like to see:  "Office Politics".  Whether you lay brick for a living, bag groceries or sit behind a computer screen all day; people have to learn about Office Politics in order to survive in our world.  There are all the same players:  the backstabbers, the do-gooders, the ambitious at any cost people, the bosses with blindness and those of us stuck in the middle.

When does it start?  On the playground and it continues until Social Security issues a retirement check.  That's alot of years to try and figure out this complicated maze of politics.

More Musings Later-
