Oprah's natural follow-up to Auschwitz? Grey's Anatomy!

Grey's Anatomy stars on OprahAs Bob told you, Oprah will be visiting Auschwitz with Holocaust survivor and Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel on today's show, which should be a very informative and interesting episode. It is probably one of the most somber and serious topics Oprah's ever covered.

So what's the natural follow-up? Grey's Anatomy, y'all!

On Friday, Oprah will talk to the entire cast of Grey's about the hugely popular season finale and about the show in general, including show news. She'll also have Uma Thurman for something or other.

(By the way, Thursday's show is about 50 young people Oprah wants you to meet. But saying that was the follow-up to Auschwitz isn't nearly as absurdly funny as talking about Grey's. My blog post; I get to make up the rules.)

Oprah's book club: a Holocaust memoir

It looks as though Oprah Winfrey has been browsing the nonfiction aisles of the bookstore. While the authenticity of her last Oprah's Book Club selection is still in question, she has moved on to assign her faithful readers another memoir: Night, by Elie Wiesel. You may recognize his name for the Nobel Peace Prize he won in 1986 for decades of writing against hatred and racism. Wiesel's first novel (he calls it a memoir) chronicles his family's experience in Auschwitz during the Holocaust. Oprah said the book "should be required reading for all of humanity." Next month, Oprah will also hold a high school essay contest about the book, in which 50 selected writers will be flown to Chicago to be part of the audience when Wiesel is a guest. She will also visit Auschwitz with Wiesel, which should make for one very powerful hour of television.
