Taking a cue from The Carol Burnett Show, Oprah's bumping up the lights to let the audience get in on the fun and ask questions.

The first question is for Carol. "How was it being a career mom in the '70s, and how many hours did you put in each week?" one audience member asks.

While hosting The Carol Burnett Show, Carol says she only worked about 30 hours a week. "It was like a part-time job," she says. "We were totally organized. ... I was always home to be with the kids. Sometimes, I [would] beat them home from school."

Back then, she says Friday was the only long workday of the week. "We would tape, and that would be a long day, but not bad," she says. "[We taped] from 10 in the morning till 10 at night. That was it."
