'Oprah's Next Chapter' Interview With Bobbi Kirstina, Whitney Houston's Family Brings In Record Ratings

Posted: Updated:

Oprah's cable network got some good news on Monday.

Following the talk show queen's exclusive interview with Whitney Houston's family, including her daughter Bobbi Kristina, "Oprah's Next Chapter," raked in 3.5 millon viewers. The highly anticipated interview was the network's most watched broadcast ever, a ratings record for the one-year-old network.

"Oprah's Next Chapter," which premiered on New Years day, was already a noticeable hit for the young cable network. It's premiere episode brought in 1.1 million viewers, which was a record broadcast at the time.

The record ratings is quite welcome at OWN, which struggled to gain traction in 2011.

Oprah found herself in hot water last month, after she tweeted a message to her followers asking those—"especially with a Nielsen box"—to tune into OWN. Nielsen prohibits its clients from doing anything that could tamper with and/or boost ratings. Oprah issued a public apology and removed the tweet at Nielsen's request.
