Last week, Oprah's attempt at a live webcast with book club author Eckhart Tolle was a debacle — the servers crashed due to overwhelming demand and the event was a flop. Now, Oprah's giving it a second try, but not without a mass apology for what went wrong.

From the New York Post:

In an email sent over the weekend to hundreds of thousands of fans who signed up for an online class with her latest book club author, the talk-show host blamed her Web site crashing on a "programming problem."

It has now been fixed, she says. A live webcast is expected to draw about 1 million people tonight when Oprah hosts the second of eight Monday night appearances.
