Oprah’s Interview With Lindsay Lohan Is Not The Ratings Blockbuster That Was Expected

Oprah’s Interview With Lindsay Lohan Is Not The Ratings Blockbuster That Was Expected

I told you so weeks ago, but did anyone listen to me? Of course

It was just reported that Oprah Winfrey’s much-hyped and written-about interview with the official poster child for disaster Lindsay Lohan, was not the rating smash that was hoped for on OWN.

The Oprah’s Next Chapter
episode pulled in an average audience of 892,000.
Though that’s a major increase in the show’s average numbers of around 478,000, it doesn’t even come close other previous high profile interviews on the

Her interview with disgraced cyclist Lance Armstring pulled in 3.1
viewers, while her interview with Rihanna attracted 2.4 million viewers.

But Oprah’s March 2012 interview with
Whitney Houston’s family shortly after her death, tops them all, pulling in a record 3.5
, still the biggest audience OWN has gotten to date.

What’s more, the lackluster result for the Lohan interview,
which I predicted weeks ago, also must sting, since this is, in effect, the first part
of an extended $2 million deal OWN has with Lohan for the interview, and an 8-part reality TV show on the way, which I first wrote
about HERE.

If the interview did only so-so, then who’s going to
watch the reality series?

Somebody needed a bra that day. Lol.


I was organizing a room in the house, so I watched it as background entertainment.

Lindsay is talented when she is sober. I wish her well.

You called it and I knew you were going to be right. I didn't bother to see it because I was watching WWE SummerSlam. Oprah needs to stop doing these stunts and focus on making good TV.


Idk why Oprah decided to interview her anyway. She always holds back in her interviews and we know her business already. She's not private like Armstrong, she isn't open in interviews like Rihanna, and isn't a megastar or dead like Whitney.
