Oprah Show Ends Where "The Environment Man Show" Begins
Oprah Winfrey, left, has announced she will end her talk show on September 9, 2011 and it is rumored that Environmental Man will begin his new show, "The Environment Man Show" on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) on September 9, 2010. It is being reported that Ms. Winfrey will concentrate exclusively on her forthcoming cable channel, while Eman will concentrate exclusively on saving our precious planet, with the show as part of his campaign.
OWN is a joint venture between her production company and Discovery Communications, which produces the Discovery Channel that reaches more than 70 million households. Rumors are running rampant around Hollywood that Harpo Productions is depending on "The Environment Man Show" to be one of its flagship program. Environment Man has been described as the epitome of the post-ironic 21st century American cultural attitude. He's completely taken the entire history of American mass entertainment from country and western to Ziggy Stardust & the Spiders From Mars and the quirkiness of anti deep ecology environmentalism and melded it into a character that is completely contemporary. Eman has a hard core cult following and it is expected that he can translate his underground charm to a mass market.
According to some of my underground sources, "The Environment Man Show" will have the following themes: In a time of global climate change, inner city murder and terrorism, a superhero has emerged to mitigate the corrosion. Nuclear powered and photovoltaically tanned, Environment Man is friend to the poor, enemy of the evil doers, and dangerous to those ruining the Earth. Wind propelled and mobile via plug-in hydrogen fuel cell hybrid electric environmentmobile, E-Man wants the public to know this: "It is now, it is always, it will be.....Environment Man." Eman will also perform a musical number much like Mike Huckabee at the end of each show. He is shown above right with members of his Ecology Band. (NYT, 11.19/09)
