'Oprah' Ratings Continue to Plummet

Oprah is having one tough summer.

In the week ending July 18, CBS Television Distribution's The Oprah Winfrey Show sunk to an all-time ratings low for the third time in five weeks, dropping 13% from the prior week to a 2.8 live plus same day household average, according to Nielsen Media Research. That almost moved Oprah out of syndie's top-ten, tying for overall ninth place with CTD's Inside Edition and reruns of the off-net hour CSI: New York. Compared to last year at this time, Oprah is down 20%.

That said, Oprah, which was in repeats all week except for Monday, remained the top talker for the 585th week in a row, according to CTD.

Meanwhile, the fortunes of access magazines rose while those of actor Mel Gibson fell, as recordings of him hurling profanities and threats at his ex-girlfriend spread across the Internet.


One of the main reasons her ratings are dropping to an all time low is because of her support for Obama. And I'm sure you all know why she does that.
