The just-released ratings of the first airing of Lohan’s episode of “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” show that only 892,000 people tuned in to hear the headline-making actress talk about her troubles.

In comparison, Oprah’s interview with disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong pulled in 3.2 million viewers during its first airing in Janurary.
