    I guess Oprah's really given up on that "lifestyle brand", huh?

    She also seemingly gave up on that whole "uplifting, positive" programming pledge, where she claimed she was not going to allow "her" channel (owned in every way except in name by Discovery Networks) to air lowest-common-denominator fare like true-crime shows (20/20, Dateline) and slappy/screamy reality shows (Dr. Phil). Which is not to say her channel shouldn't air such things as campy soaps and/or cheesy, unfunny sitcoms. More power to her. She just made a judgment error in what people wanted to see. If her image was so important to her, she ought to have made it clear that Discovery really programs the channel, and they're just slapping her name on it.
