But, but, but…Lindsay Lohan was supposed to be a big help to OWN!
We’re not sure WHAT is wrong with America to not watch last night’s big debut of Lindz’s show on Oprah Winfrey’s network, but these numbers don’t lie!
LiLo’s ratings were far from phenomenal!
The first episode of Lindsay earned only 693,000 viewers!
And while that’s the best unscripted premiere for the cable station in 2014, it’s not even close to their biggest show so far.
Lohan’s docu-series comes in third in the demo behind Iyanla: Fix My Life and Life with La Toya!
Oof. Beat by La Toya Jackson?
We’re not sure if that’s a great way to start. But OWN network prexy Erik Logan tried to put a positive spin on Lindsay’s first night, saying:
"We knew statistically speaking, from a ratings point of view, that we wanted to bring a different audience to this network.”
It’s true - the premiere last night did grab some younger viewers, with the ratings up 231% from last year with women 18-34.
But where are the rest of the key demos?!
People, if you’re not watching the dramz on this show, you’re cah-razy!
Make sure you tune in for Episode 2!
