Oprah's ratings Palin by comparison

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Those of you who claim that Oprah brought Sarah Palin onto her show this week strictly for the ratings -- during sweeps month, duh -- well, the gambit worked. The Palin interview scored Oprah the highest ratings she's had in two years.

Broadcasting & Cable reports:

The CBS Television Distribution talk show hit a 7.2 rating/18 share weighted-metered-market average for all telecasts on Monday, Nov. 16. That's up 36% from last year's 5.3/13 time period average.

The last time Oprah did as well was when the entire Osmond clan appeared on Nov. 9, 2007. The Palin episode also was the highest rated since this year's season premiere featuring a tell-all interview with Whitney Houston and last year's post-presidential election episode.
