I used to watch Oprah a lot when I was in the States.. I love her! When Oprah and Ellen were aired together in Madison, I chose Oprah over Ellen because Oprah's shows are mostly inspirational, and I used to think that Ellen was lame.. Now that I've moved to Singapore, we no longer have Oprah... We only have Ellen, which is aired about 3 times a day (around 5 or 6 am, 9 am, and 5 pm, and maybe more during the early hours), 5 days a week.. I was 'forced' to watch Ellen instead of Oprah, and as the time went by, I found that Ellen was funny.. She teases a lot of people, which makes people love her because she is so much fun.. Each one of Ellen's shows is a lot of fun and laughter, which is great to watch..makes you kinda forget about your stress a little bit... On the other hand, Oprah's shows remind us that there are people out there that are not as lucky as we are..makes you think that your stress is nothing compared to other people's..makes you realize blessed you are in your life.. If I have to choose, I would still choose Oprah.. Yeah, I'm sentimentalist.. =p~ But I find that both shows are enjoyable to watch! I like 'em both! =) Whom do you prefer to watch better, and why?

I think the two shows are so differentr that they are hard to compare. like you I find Ellen is very funny, and I enjoy watching her show from time to time. Oprah has much more serious topics, and goes more in depth of things. As a person I prefere Ellen, but as shows go I prefere Oprah

Yes, that is absolutely true. Their shows basically carry different contents, but since both host talk shows, a lot of people are trying to compare both of them.. =) Thanks for your opinions, teison2! =)

Hmm I guess I would have to go with Ellen, but it's only because she's the lesser of two eviels - I really hate Ophra, she's probably the most fake person in the world.

Hmmm... I heard that exact comment from my guy friend, too... I wonder how you know that she's so fake... I watched Oprah, but I don't follow the news about her private life...so to me, she seems nice on TV, regardless how her private life is.. That's why I like her and her show...her themes are often deep and serious...and it mostly discusses about women issues, so..yeah...that's why I love her.. =) Thanks for your thoughts anyways, Phlamingho! =)

It depends,in different moods,I would make different choose.When I feel happy,I would rather to watch Ellen's shows,because her humor can make me much happier,but when I am in blue,it will be not easy to share the happiness,I prefer Oprah's shows,which let me see something much harder than mine,keep me from losing hope of life.

That makes sense... If I had the option to choose between both of them, I think I would also still choose them based on my mood.. Thanks for your reply, Cheryl99! =)
