I'm not even sure how to answer this without making a "Oh, is it 1992?" joke.
I know. I've also never watched "Oprah". I was fairly busy in the last 20 years, daytime TV wasn't really something I had many chances to watch. Certainly not US daytime TV. I did see when they added the greenscreen coffee table to "Breakfast" but that's about it.
That said, I usually can at least understand how shows become popular. Jerry Springer, I get it, white trash voyeurism. Even Rachel Ray I mostly understand. She's your fat friend with a great personality who can't cook at all but tries really hard. Ellen is your safe Lesbian friend, etc. I really don't understand what this is even "supposed" to be. Are there people who can't fry an egg? Does it give license to the petit bourgeoisie to serve a fried egg and pretend it's sophisticated?
I genuinely, all joking aside, do not get the demographic that watches this show. The woman's not attractive in any way I can discern, she doesn't seem particularly nurturing/mother figure like either. Is it someone to feel that you're better than?
