Lindsay Lohan sat down with Oprah and told her she checked into rehab for the very first time because she used Ambien and it scared her (to which Oprah gave the most skeptical look ever and tried get more of an explanation and gave up) and also that she did cocaine “Ten to fifteen times” to which everyone torrenting this mess laughed mightily. I guess a lot of people at this point are fed up with Lohan, because the interview was one of Oprah’s lowest rated interviews, ever. Some stats from The Hollywood Reporter via The Superficial:
The one-hour OWN broadcast averaged 892,000 viewers to the 9 p.m. premiere telecast. The 10 p.m. encore averaged 504,000 viewers.
Now let’s compare that to
Winfrey’s Oprah’s Next Chapter sit-down with Whitney Houston’s family in March 2012 is still OWN’s most-watched effort for the network, drawing 3.5 million viewers. The first part of disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong’s January interview with Winfrey is close behind with a strong 3.2 million. Third is Rihanna’s interview with the talk show maven in August 2012, which averaged 2.5 million.
Let’s hope the “docu-series” they’re doing together gets better ratings. Or not, screw them.
