Exactly two months from today. That's when Oprah Winfrey will be a free woman. Or as free as you can be when you have a media empire to manage.

After 25 years on the tube, The Oprah Winfrey Show will broadcast its final original episode on May 25.

But that won't be the last we see of the O.

Reruns of her show will continue to air in syndication on her new cable network, OWN, and more than 145 countries worldwide.

And she still will also be launching a prime-time show, called Oprah's Next Chapter, that will air two to three nights a week. 

The Oprah Winfrey Show is currently on hiatus but will be back with the last batch of original episodes on April 7.
