She’s still the most famous talk show host in television history—-not to mention the richest and most influential. Log in to Reply TV Gord July 17, 2010 Who cares about ratings in the reruns summer months? I stop watching her as soon as her season wraps up in May, but I’m always back everyday in September. Log in to Reply TmontyB July 17, 2010 ^^^^^^I agree with TVGord, don’t get the significance based on reruns. Log in to Reply luverica July 17, 2010 Piggy backing on what TV Gord posted, isn’t her show mostly showing repeats right now? I think we need to revisit this issue after the final season premier in September. With all due respect, right now it seems to be much ado about nothing. With that said, I love me some Judge Judy. She’s always been my favorite TV judge. Log in to Reply Joan76 July 17, 2010 Oprah does have few new shows during the summer, she has turned me off with her political views. We don’t need anymore damm talk shows. All talk shows are down, because the idiot networks don’t count DVR and online viewing. People are final getting tired of this crap. But they’ll keep trying; ATWT had a 50 million dollar budget; compared to a gameshow 5 million or talk show 2 million. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/content_display/news/e3i4528d6a95462e410b206654d9415f341 Log in to Reply TV Gord July 17, 2010 Well, if we’re going to get technical, Oprah has had two original episodes since her season ended in May. One was the Sarah Ferguson interview about her selling access to the prince. That was on June 1st. The second one was this past Monday, and was a follow-up episode to her “Eat Pray Love” show earlier this year. And as the New York Post story points out, her show was also preempted in 14 markets during the Wimbledon coverage in June. There’s no doubt all daytime numbers are anemic these days, but I don’t think her low numbers in the summer are any indication of waning popularity. Especially with this coming season being her final one, I expect the numbers starting in September are going to be pretty strong. Log in to Reply Bob July 17, 2010 I agree with the above posts regarding the episodes being reruns. Wouldn’t a show like “Lost” or “CSI” have lower numbers in June/July compared with when episodes were fresh? Regarding Oprah’s political views — I don’t often see any reflection of her political opinions expressed during the content of her show’s episodes… am I missing something?
