oprahbiopic200.jpgCHICAGO, Illinois (X17online) - Oprah Winfrey is ending her show after 25 years to start her OWN network, but the host plans on going out with a bang, not to mention massive ratings.

The Oprah Winfrey Show episode featuring Michael Jackson's kids, Prince, Paris and Blanket ... as well as Michael's parents, scored a 6.7 rating when it aired the week of November 7, her biggest ratings in three years.

Other recent shows that did well for the queen of talk: her sit-down with Marie Osmond discussing her son's suicide and former President George W. Bush brought in a 6.1 rating ... drawing in over 8 million viewers.

Oprah's biggest syndicated competitors are Wheel of Fortune and Judge Judy. The court show was beating Winfrey earlier this year by 600,000 viewers.
