Via the New York Post:
“The Oprah Winfrey Show” is going off the air at the end of her 25th season next year. And McCarthy — the 1993 Playboy Playmate of the Year who became an activist and author after her son, Evan, 8, was diagnosed with autism— has a development deal with Winfrey’s Harpo Productions. “We do not have anyone taking over for Oprah,” a Harpo spokeswoman told us. “We do have a development deal with Jenny McCarthy. We are exploring possibilities across a number of platforms.” Oprah is launching her OWN network and might want McCarthy’s talk show on her schedule.
