"The Oprah Winfrey Show" may be signing off Wednesday, but Winfrey's network doesn't want to lose touch.

Thursday from 9-11 a.m., Winfrey's best friend, Gayle King, will host "The Gayle King Show: Oprah Finale After Party," live from Chicago on OWN and on SiriusXM's Oprah Radio channel.

More channels weigh in

Weight-loss TV is spreading.

Last week, Univision announced a 2011-12 schedule that included "Si Se Puede" ("It's Possible") from Dave Broome, the creator of NBC's "The Biggest Loser," and Emilio Estefan. It will focus on families and is expected to launch early next year.

Lifetime, meanwhile, is planning its own take on the genre with "Love Handles: Couples in Crisis," beginning May 31.

Acronyms gone wild

Not sure how CBS et al. could have missed this, but among the shows announced last week for Turner's Adult Swim slate was this summer's "NTSF:SD:SUV::."

That stands for "National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle," and it's about a "clandestine team of government agents working together to protect San Diego from numerous terrorist threats."

It's promising "suspense, action, drama, cliff-hangers, yelling, passionate lovemaking, more yelling, death and plenty of pregnant pauses." *
