Oprah’s New Network A Winner!

The numbers are in for the first day of Oprah Winfrey’s network, and it turns out that what people most want to see on the network is Oprah.

About 1.2 million people watched the debut of “Season 25: Oprah Behind the Scenes,” an inside look at the final season of Oprah Winfrey’s syndicated talk show. It was the biggest audience on Day One of the network, which is a co-venture between Winfrey and Silver Spring-based Discovery networks.

Other shows that aired on the network on New Year’s Day included first looks at “Kidnapped by the Kids,” “Miracle Detectives” and “Enough Already With Peter Walsh.” An OWN representative did not provide ratings for those shows, promising to release them Tuesday.

The network, however, did want you to know that on Sunday, the first in a series of specials called “Ask Oprah’s All Stars” – starring heavy-hitting Oprah proteges Dr. Phil, Dr. Oz and Suze Orman – attracted nearly 970,000 viewers and that “Master Class,” featuring Diane Sawyer, copped 602,000 viewers.

And finally, OWN boasted the No. 3 rated ad-supported cable network among women ages 24 to 54 at 8 and 9 p.m. Saturday.
