Bill, Melinda and Oprah

Posted by Brier Dudley at 2:36 PM

Bill and Melinda Gates appeared on "Oprah" Tuesday to call for improvements to the U.S. education system, one of the major undertakings of their charitable foundation.

The show featured a short interview filmed last month at San Diego High School, then cut to a segment that contrasted an inner-city Chicago high school near Oprah's studio with a luxurious school in the suburbs.

The two-part special continues today. It airs at 4 p.m. on KING 5 and 9 p.m. on KONG 6.

Whether the show has an effect on the education crisis remains to be seen. But we're now expecting to see Oprah visit her new friends in Medina sometime, perhaps at the CEO Summit in May.
