Ellen may be beating Oprah in the ratings, but Oprah just landed herself a network all for her.

It's called the "Oprah Winfrey Network", or "OWN." She reached a deal with Discovery Communications for them to turn their network over to her. And they came to this decision with no cash exchange!

In return for her network, Oprah is handing over her website to Discovery. The network is currently seen in over 68 million homes and they say ''the focus of the channel will be the focus of Oprah's brand, which is the educate and inspire people to live the best life they can.''!
