NO LILO BOOST: Oprah Winfrey’s OWN interviews with hot-topic disgraced celebrities or other frequent tabloid targets have brought big ratings to the TV queen’s new network. Not so much with Lindsay Lohan.
Oprah’s post-rehab interview with the long-troubled star drew a far smaller audience than earlier Winfrey exclusives. LiLo’s interview which aired Sunday on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” averaged 892,000 total viewers — only slightly above the program’s usual Sunday numbers.
By comparison, the interview with Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown attracted 3.5 million viewers, and the one with disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong drew 3.2 million.
