According to MediaBistro, 3.2 million people watched Oprah Winfrey interview Lance Armstrong
on a special edition of “Oprah’s Next Chapter” last night on OWN,
according to preliminary numbers from Nielsen. It drew an additional 1.2
million viewers in its re-air at 10:30 p.m.
The interview did not break records, however. The highest-rated program in OWN’s
history was the interview with Whitney Houston‘s daughter Bobbi Kristina and other family members, which drew 3.5 million viewers
in March, 2012. In August of 2012, an interview with singer Rihanna had
2.5 million viewers.
As noted by MediaBistro, the OWN interview was also available via online streaming and Oprah's old syndicated show regularly drew 10 million viewers.
