oprahs big reveal brings in the ratings

Looks like Oprah's big reveal about her secret half-sister didn't only bring in the tears…it ALSO brought in the ratings!

The episode of Oprah where she made her big announcement "scored her best ratings in nearly six years," with a massive 9.6 household rating, which is her highest since her Feb 28, 2005 "post-Oscar party" episode.

Congratulations, Oprah! Seems like making this reveal to the world was a positive experience for you on multiple levels.

We wish U and your half-sister all the best!

    I am disappointed at the length she goes to for ratings. She really milked that half sister show. There's a rumor that her dad isn't her real dad…….wonder if that's something she will pursue.

    Well she is saving the best for the last show in May, FINALLY she and GAYle are coming out of the closet.

    I've always thought Oprah was overrated but between this and her own network now I've had enough of her. First the saying she had her personal chef make her tons of mac and cheese when her movie bombed (oh poor you, couldn't even mix your own mac and cheese and HAD to mention your personal chef) and now this. Oh, Oprah has a long lost sister. Who cares. Retire already.

    … AND Gayle is also her half sister!

    Yay!!! Nothing like exploiting and capitalizing upon private family matters.
    Although I'm sure her half sister doesn't mind the media attentionslashpaycheck.

    The only reason her ratings soared was because she made such a big deal about a 'reveal', when in reality, it wasn't anything important to everyone else in the world. Who cares if she has a half sister out there? My dad has 2 half brothers that he's never met and you don't see him catching the media's attention for that.
    This was the only way for her to get any ratings, for her to exploit herself and her family. Whatever happened to keeping family matters private?

    GAYLE IS THE REAL HALF SISTA. SHE'S PROFITED MOST OUT OF ALL HER FAMILY INCLUDING HER REAL MEMBERS. POOR PATRICIA. GONNA PLAY 2ND FIDDLE TO GAYLE. ANOTHER CINDERELLA STORY AND LESBIAN GAYLE WILL PLAY THE EVIL STEP SISTA.
