Yes only Oprah could pull this off. This is also a nice audition for Chicago to get the Olympics in 2016. Story below:
CHICAGO — Fans began lining up at 6 a.m. Saturday for a chance to snag free tickets to “The Oprah Winfrey Show” season premiere featuring 150 U.S. Olympic athletes.
By noon, the line of Winfrey fans and U.S. Olympic supporters stretched nearly six city blocks in Chicago’s Millennium Park. The show will air Sept. 8 and include appearances by gold medalists Michael Phelps, Nastia Liukin and Kobe Bryant.
Tickets for the Winfrey’s tapings are usually available only by phone and nearly impossible to get, so fans were itching for the 2,000 seats up for grabs for Wednesday’s taping.
