October 10, 2011 | by gweiswasser

The premiere episodes of the new OWN series The Rosie Show and Oprah’s Lifeclass will air concurrently across five Discovery networks tonight at 7pm ET/PT and 8pm ET/PT, respectively. Joining OWN in airing the premieres will be TLC, Investigation Discovery, Discovery Fit & Health and Planet Green.

The Rosie Show is a new daily talk show hosted by Emmy Award-winning actress and comedian Rosie O’Donnell. Funny, high-energy and authentic, no two days of the show will be alike. The show will feature Rosie’s hilarious take on current events, celebrity and human interest guests, comedy and games, live performances by top artists and a behind the scenes look at Rosie — and her staff — as she settles into a new world and embarks upon a new chapter in her life. Comedian, actor and author Russell Brand will be tonight’s first in-studio celebrity guest.

In Oprah’s Lifeclass, Oprah reaches back through the 25-year history of The Oprah Winfrey Show to teach the lessons that matter most to her. Oprah will share her most personal revelations, and what she thinks now about those iconic show moments and guests. The series will also feature a companion online class accompanying the series including actual course work on Oprah.com, for an even more enriching experience. Immediately following the series at 9pm ET/PT, Oprah will be holding live online discussions each night during the series’ premiere week (tonight through Friday) via OWN’s and Oprah’s Facebook pages and on Oprah.com. Join in the discussion and see what Oprah has to say!
