Top Definition
To oversimplify or "dumb down" complex scientific, medical, psychological or political ideas for easy intellectual digestion within the span of a 60-minute TV show. Usually ends with a convenient feel-good moment.

The term stems from the habits of a certain long-time talk show host, but has wide applications.
Shows like "CSI" and "Law & Order" oprahsimplify forensic science and the justice system by implying a murder case can be wrapped up in 60 minutes (minus ad time) with no loose ends.
