First Oprah Winfrey announced she's stepping down from her talk show, now comes news she's canceling her famous "Favorite Things" episode.
An employee at her production company, Harpo, tells HuffingtonPost.com, "We have no plans this season for a 'Favorite Things.'"
The show has become a holiday tradition in which the talk show host gives her "favorite things" away to enthusiastic audience members. In 2004, she gifted all teachers; Hurricane Katrina volunteers in 2005; and in 2007, taped the show from her most-watched location, Macon, Ga.
In 2008, Winfrey gave away only inexpensive or homemade items to coincide with the recession.
