Oprah's OWN Network Falls In The Ratings

| Filed under: TV NewsOprah Winfrey


Although Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network had one million primetime viewers last weekend, the numbers keep falling by the day.

The network started with a miliion viewers on Saturday, but fell to 822,000 by Sunday. Monday dropped to 822,000 and on Tuesday, it hit a low of 315,000.

But it was still competitive compared to other women's networks! OWN beat out Oxygen and WE, but Lifetime remains in the lead.

OWN CEO Christina Norman said:

“Launch is only the beginning for us. Our goal was to double Discovery Health Channel’s ratings and move from a network ranked in the 40s to a network ranked in the 20s. So far we’re meeting those figures.”

Inneresting to see how it plays out. Are U watching OWN?!

    They hardly have any new content on it right now. I'm sure ratings will pick up when they add more new shows.

  2. 2

    I'm so disappointed that Oprah took over Discovery Health… That was my FAVORITE channel. :(
    I'm mad at Oprah. I refuse to even tune into that channel. As a matter of fact I'm considering changing my cable service to eliminate it from my cable package.

    It needs some good programming. 2-3 year old reruns of Dr. Phil is not gonna cut it.

  4. 4

    315,000 is amazing considering they were showing reruns. Discovery Health which it took over for averaged 250,000.

    I have watched it but got sick of seeing the same shows I saw 2 or 4 years ago (Dr. Phil, Best of Trading Spaces). Fit TV has all the shows that use to be on Discovery Health. In Ontario, California it's 171.

    Will never watch it. The way she used and abused people for her own ratings was disgusting. Karma is a b.tch Oprah. I think people have finally seen the true Oprah and are not that impressed!

  7. 7

    I haven't tuned in, and don't really plan to do so. It doesn't seem like anything I will be interested in even when she has the new shows on. I think it took over for Dr. G which was a show I would watch sometimes. Nice going Oprah. I am sure her fans will all watch, but I won't be one of them.

  8. 8

    Oprah roll over and kiss Gayle Good morning. I'm so tired of this Mac & Cheese nut job always searching for Happiness. Her and Dr. Phil are the perfect example of pure over involved Narcissistic turds.

  9. 9

    I agree with some of the comments. Right now, the OWN is showing the same shows, repeatedly. I keep looking ahead in my channel line up for new shows, but I keep seeing the same repeated shows. I think they need to start adding shows or people will forget about the channel & not go back to check. The shows I've seen so far are pretty good, though. I can't wait for Lisa Ling's new show on the OWN.

    Hello No Big O!! I cant stand Oprah!

    Considering Discovery Health was my favorite channel I think OWN sucks right now. The only good show I've watched is Mystery Diagnosis which was on Discovery Health. The only other one I'm interested in is Deliver Me, which was also on Discovery Health. I'm not interested in all the self help talk shows and reruns she's airing.

  12. 12

    I wouldn't know how it is. In my area you have to pay extra for this channel. Not changing my package for this. After reading these comments I'm glad I didn't. Can't stand Dr. Phil.

  13. 13

    first of all, you have ratings of 822,000 on Sunday and dropped to 822,000 on Monday. PROOFREADING IS A WONDER THING MARIO. It dropped to 394,000 on Monday, and considering all she basically has is REPEATS on her network, REPEATS FROM OTHER NETWORKS, the only reason she has any type of ratings is because of HER NAME!!!! Trading Spaces???? That show was so so to begin with, on CABLE and like 5 years ago, and she picks THAT UP? I guess The Discovery Channel let her and Gayle go running through the dusty library picking out 'oldies, but not goodies' to stick on her network. I miss the old Discovery Health. BRING THAT BACK…

  14. 14

    I'm through with Oprah, so I won't be watching. She claims she wants to be neutral politically, but she never misses a chance to bash people who don't believe the way she does. Plus, Dr. Phil will have a show? And, her friend, Gayle? No thanks.

  15. 15

    I wouldn't watch this self-righteous, self-serving pig's show if I was paid to! Go build another SINGLE school (with all your billions) stocked full of child molesters. Go buy another $60 million home, but continue to ignore the homeless in New Orleans. Go do another 'things Orca likes' show - when really, you like ANYTHING the manufacturing sponsors GIVE YOU to make you look good in front of your audience. Stick a fork in ya Oprah… you're done (just like the ratings are telling you).

  16. 16

    no, not watching. Oprah showed her true colors. She's dead to me.

  17. 17

    All OWN does is play reruns of the 4 or 5 shows it has. Then it plays really old episodes of Dr.Phil, and Trading Spaces. Very unappealing, I understand why people aren't watching it.

  18. 18

    Why the fuck would I watch that.

    Does this really have to be a weekly update. Who really gives a shit, besides that is no that much content at the moment and Oprah still has her show on a major network. So it really means nothing at the moment till she has her own shows on the network, which I assume wont happen till the fall.

  21. 21

    I love Oprah!

    well i'm not surprised ! there's nothing going on in this shit channel. it's is going down.

  23. 23

    HOORAY!!! Down with that… well… you know…. wannabe!! XD

  24. 24

    There is nothing on the channel as of yet that I would want to watch. I won't watch fake Dr. Phil, didn't watch him before certainly won't watch reruns of him, Trading Spaces, been there done that like 7 years ago. Not. Who ever is choosing the show lineups are not doing a very good job. With all the channels on cable now you need to be different and draw attention. Oh well O, if it doesn't work out it's a good write off for your billions of dollars. Right?????

  25. 25

    822,000-822,000=0. wow! huge drop!!! great to see your math skills are as pathetic as your english skills. hire an editor you MORONS!

    Re: Lafemme22 – I agree with you on that. She had the nerve to have the Devil Jay-Z to be the first on her show for two days at that. Oprah & Jay-Z are the industries biggest con artist ever and KARMA will soon be knocking at their doors. I am so glad that her so is failing because she was really hurting people not helping them

    i have been telling people for years that oprah nothing but a phony, her time is up and she might as well face it, oprah go home play with your dogs, and continue to embrace that false anti christ gospel you and eckhart tolle tried to force on everybody, which will be your down fall, for GOD give and GOD takes away, bye- bye, oprah go home to your rich , boring and depressive life
