Back On Top: Oprah Scores Big On Her OWN With 3.5 Million Viewers


Oprah Winfrey has apparently revived her OWN network – as the channel brought in 3.5 million viewers last night for her interview with Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina.

According to TV Guide, Oprah’s 90-minute special was the most-watched telecast ever on OWN, earning 3.5 million viewers and a 3.1 rating in the network’s key woman 25 to 54 demo.

The intimate sit-down with Whitney Houston’s daughter, sister-in-law Patricia and brother Gary doubled the amount of the network’s previous high, a January episode of “Oprah’s Next Chapter” with Pastor Joel Osteen, which drew 1.6 million. Next week fans of the show can watch Oprah interview singer Lady Gaga, who gave the big O access to her house and family.

Of course, MSDTV will keep you posted. Stay tuned.
