    Queen Latifah, hip-hop's pioneering feminist and multitalented Hollywood A-lister, has returned to TV, launching her new talk show The Queen Latifah Show this month. But this isn't the Queen's first go-round as a talk-show host -- she had a short-lived show back in 1999. But this time Latifah says things will be different. And if ratings for the show's debut episode are any indication, she's absolutely right.
