After reports that Oprah’s Network, OWN, was suffering, Oprah and her team quickly turned things around. Oprah’s hit show “Oprah’s Next Chapter” has been steadily bringing in new viewers with its big name interviews.
 
Now, a new show, “Iyanla Fix My Life” is has broken the show’s record with it’s first episodes featuring Basketball Wife and future ex-wife of Chad Johnson, Evelyn Lozada. I have to admit I definitely see why. The show was nothing short of amazing and really played on viewers emotions. 
 
This is how the numbers added up according to a press release from OWN:
  • the premiere of the new original series “Iyanla Fix My Life” with life coach Iyanla Vanzant landed 1,136,000 million viewers ranking #2 in its time period in W25-54 among all ad-supported cable networks. The premiere, which featured “Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada, continued ratings momentum with part two (on Sunday, Sept.) with 1,590,000 million total viewers, ranking #3 in its time period among ad-supported cable in W25-54 and W18-49. The Sunday episode also ranked #1 in the time slot across all broadcast and cable with African-American W25-54 (9.66) and W18-49 (9.12). (Basically, the two night premiere is the network’s #1 series debut ever, ranking  #2 (W25-54) in all of cable in time period on Saturday.)
  • The return of popular original series “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s” (Saturday, Sept. 15 at 9 p.m.) also hit an all-time series high with 932,000 total viewers. The series ranked #4 in its time period among ad-supported cable W25-54 and #1 across all broadcast and cable in all key African-American demos (4.76 W25-54, 3.55 W18-49, and 766,000 total viewers).
  • “Oprah’s Next Chapter” (Sunday, Sept. 16 at 9 p.m.) featuring Opra’s interview with R&B artist Usher garnered 1,520,000 million viewers ranking #3 in its time period in W25-54 and W18-49 among all ad-supported cable. The series ranked #1 in the time period across all broadcast and cable in key African-American demos (8.94 W25-54, 8.05 W18-49).
  • OWN’s Sunday morning series “Super Soul Sunday” is at its highest to date, up +158% over its season average
