Oprah, whose ratings have been taking a hit (possibly because of her fervent Obama endorsement), is turning to debut author Sarah Palin to dig her out of a ratings hole:

Oprah Winfrey, on a campaign to climb back from last season's ratings slump, will attempt to kiss and make up with conservative viewers on Nov. 16 when she has Sarah Palin on her syndicated talk show.

Also, on the day that Palin's Going Rogue is released, a small, smart publisher will also release a paperback collection of critical essays about Palin titled Going Rouge.
