As we’ve all been reading, and NOT watching…OWN is not doing well. In fact, it’s doing so poorly, that the network it replaced, Discovery Health, used to get higher ratings. Ouch. So, now the Big O is going to intervene. She’s announced that she’s giving the network a “reboot.” Unfortunately, that poor network needs more than a “reboot” to keep viewers.
I don’t get it, did Oprah think she could just start a network, and the people would come like Field of Dreams?
A network spokesperson said, “We’re doing a lot of changes to the schedule.” I know that’s not saying much, but I’m assuming they’re going to shake up the shows, and hopefully spice it up with better programming. As is, the network has an old school Lifetime feel to it without the movies.
At this point, I think the only thing that can bring in ratings is if Oprah made a cameo on every show.
