The OWN curse continues!

Rosie O'Donell's return to television with her new show on the network, The Rosie Show, apparently only garnered a total of 497,000 viewers to its premiere telecast last night at 7pm, which although is a vast improvement from last year during the Discovery Health days, is much less than the premiere of Why Not? With Shania Twain, which pulled in a little less than double that with 839,000!

Oprah's OWN Network Starts Out Strong!

Filed under: TV NewsOprah WinfreyBusiness Blitz

oprahs new own network does well on new years day debut

Earlier today, we mentioned that some fans were pissed because they couldn't get Oprah's new OWN network on their basic cable services.

Looks like there's still plenty of people who ARE getting the network, because OWN's New Years debut was pretty impressive!

During OWN's 12-12:30 p.m. debut, the network scored a 0.7 household rating, which is a 555% gain from the same time slot only four weeks ago, when the channel used to be Discovery Health.

Oprah's ratings were even better with the show Season 25: Oprah Behind the Scenes, which landed OWN a 1.0 rating in the 8-9 p.m. time slot and a 0.9 rating at 9 p.m. This marks a 500% jump from the same time slot four short weeks ago.

OWN became the third most-watched cable network during the night of Jan 1 in the 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. time slots.

Not a bad way to get things going, Oprah!

Guess we'll see if she can keep it up.
