Oprah...may I call you Oprah? Ms. Winfrey? Okay, well, I'm off work today, and it seems like a good time to mention something that perhaps no one else has called to your attention. You see, I love your show, but I work full time, so I only get to watch it on holidays. What I've noticed many times in the past--and again today--is that most of the time when I watch your show on a holiday, it's a show I've already seen...on an earlier holiday.
Now, I realize you like to take trips to Africa and make enormous contributions to the children of the world, and that's a wonderful thing. (God knows I don't do enough of that kind of thing myself.) I know you need a vacation every now and then, too, and I'd be the first to say you deserve it. I'm just mentioning these things to show you that I do understand there'll be times when you have to show reruns. I get that.
My question is, since I'm only off work about 12 weekdays each year, and you must have at least a hundred new shows during that same year, do you think you could talk to your staff and ask them to shuffle the reruns a little better? Like, make sure there are enough reruns to cover all the holidays without repeating?
Sorry to bother you with this, but considering some of the things I've seen you accomplish, I'm sure you could fix this with a snap of your fingers. I'd be ever so grateful.
Thanks for your time.
