Will Oprah Winfrey fill in for Charlie Rose on 'CBS This Morning?' Network is reportedly 'begging' her to join

"CBS This Morning" may find its saving grace in Oprah Winfrey -- if she gives the thumbs up.

Producers are clamoring to convince the talk show icon to step in for Charlie Rose, according to Page Six. Rose was fired from the show less than 24 hours after a Washington Post bombshell report exposed sexual misconduct claims by eight women. 

“They are begging Oprah to fill in,” the source said. “Not full time ... But they are hoping she’ll do one day, two days, one hour, fill in ’til Christmas. Anything.”

A rep for Winfrey said that she had not received a formal offer to join the program as of Tuesday. It took five years before producers could convince her to join "60 Minutes," which she did in September.

Winfrey is famously best friends with "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King, who has spoken candidly about the ongoing fallout at the network. On Tuesday night, she admitted to Stephen Colbert that she'd considered cancelling her "Late Show" appearance to avoid discussing the topic -- she was originally slated to appear simply to discuss Oprah's annual Favorite Things gift guide. (King is also editor-at-large for O, The Oprah Magazine.)

On Wednesday, CBS reported three more women -- all the company's own employees -- had come forward with allegations: "We learned about these cases not from the HR department, but from our own investigation of his behavior," CBS' news team wrote.
