    I just tried to get ready to Tivo it and Tennis is on.

    I'm guessing it's this way in most markets.

    I thought it was scheduled for 9/11. I know it's already been shot.

    I'm a little surprised details haven't leaked out.

    I'm wondering how many of us will be able to watch it.

    It depends which stations have Oprah's rights in your market. It's a syndicated show, right?

    I love the Deadspin comments...

    "I understand the CBS News showing the peephole video, but did they have to score it with that "Oh yeahhhh!" song from Ferris Bueller?"

    The interview didn't shed much new light. It's too bad she couldn't tell us more about the investigation, other than to confirm that she was filmed in two different locations. That would certainly put anyone from ESPN's crew under suspicion, because it seems unlikely that some random stalker would be able to get into position to do this in two separate cities.

    Oprah kind of mailed it in. She didn't seem terribly engaged other than to make the occasional bending over the tub reference, which Andrews didn't seem to think was funny.

    Hard to see what Andrews hoped to accomplish with this. It just puts the story back in the news. She even mentioned that her lawyers have told her that they'll never be able to totally eradicate the video from the internet, which is only going to encourage people to get on their laptops and start searching for it again, which is the last thing she wants.
