It looks like Oprah Winfrey has some work to do in order to get her new OWN tv channel up to par with the channel it replaced as new reports show a 10 percent drop in ratings.
Winfrey’s new tv channel is only a few months old so it’s got some time to grow and gain the viewership like her daily talk show did. It’s reported that her daily show on ABC gathers around 7 million viewers but her new OWN channel gets a few hundred thousand daily.
Seeing that Winfrey is going to appear more and more on her OWN channel so perhaps ratings will rise.
With Oprah’s star power it’s only a matter of pulling some celebrity ties and if she gets those exclusive interviews and breaking stories, people with cable will come flocking to her network and the gossip tabloids and websites will be hot on their heels.
Speculators and network execs are hanging on the fence waiting to see if Oprah’s network takes off. If it does it will become a force to be reckoned with in the media as it will attract new programming and maybe a hit sitcom or other venue. It’s only a matter of time before we see what special tricks Oprah has got up her sleeve.*Sponsored Links*
