It's less exotic than Australia, but still pretty good.

Oprah Winfrey surprised audience members at Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" on Thursday by saying she's sending them to Washington, D.C. this month. That's where host Jon Stewart is hosting his "Rally to Restore Sanity" in politics.

The daytime talk queen is famous for treating her audience to trips. Last month she gave people attending the first episode of her final season a trip Down Under.

She appeared via satellite Thursday on "The Daily Show" and told audience members to open red envelopes under their chairs.

Stewart planned the Oct. 30 rally shortly after Fox News Channel's Glenn Beck held one in Washington. Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert joked Thursday that his talk show host character would join Stewart and rename the event the "Rally to Restore Sanity And/Or Fear."
