Five years ago, Oprah Winfrey announced she had renewed her long-running talk show, "The Oprah Winfrey Show," for five more seasons. The time has come and gone very quickly and her show is now a memory. While her show has ended, the impact it has had on the world will not soon be forgotten.

May 2011 was slated to be the final month for show and it was treated as such. Winfrey lined up several high-profile guests in order to say goodbye. The NBA had to re-schedule their headlining playoff series between the Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat because Oprah was having her show at the United Center.

Featuring such guests as Beyonce and Michael Jordan, Oprah has finally said goodbye to her viewers. Today marked the final episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show." Twenty-five years of touching viewers is over, in that format, at least. Oprah Winfrey's media lives on through her O magazine and her television network OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network.

Through this network, Oprah is broadcasting several shows and she will even host a new talk show on the channel.
