Jennifer Aniston is returning to TV, but not in a tired ol' sitcom -- she's allegedly agreed to host a talk show on Oprah Winfrey's new cable network.

Actually, she may be co-hosting the show ... with Oprah.

London's Daily Express is reporting that the former "Friends" star and tabloid fixture is signed to star in a weekly chat fest on OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network launching on cable next spring.

The report indicates it won't just be Jen's show, it'll be the J & O show, saying Aniston will "produce and star alongside the media mogul."

Oprah didn't talk her into it. The idea sprang from Aniston's friendship with Chelsea Handler, who has her own talk show on the E! network.

"Jen became fascinated with the format after spending time with Chelsea," an OWN source told the Express. "When she saw Oprah she mentioned that it would be fun to do a chat show and Oprah seized the moment and suggested they front one together for her network."

Aniston currently fetches between $5 million and $7 million permovie; she's now starring in "Love Happens." But she might not be making huge bucks on this project. "Her salary is yet to be determined. She is doing this for one reason only; she absolutely wants to do it," the source said.

As of now, the idea for the show is once-a-week.

UPDATE: Big surprise, Aniston's rep denies the report. Says the two have no plans to work together. Too good to be true.
