The Oprah Winfrey Show, now in its final season, has been the #1 talk show for 600 straight weeks. The Jackson episode was Winfrey's highest-rated episode since the beginning of the year. Not since last November's interview with Sarah Palin has the talk show seen ratings this big.

Oprah interviewed Michael Jackson back in 1993 which also brought in big ratings. Her daytime talk show will end in September 2011.
