Lohan’s Big Oprah Interview Was A Big Ratings Flop

oprah's next chapter lindsay lohan

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.

  • Oprah should know better. Messing with a Lohan is like stepping in dog shit: the stink is going to stick around long after its gone.
