Lindsay Lohan’s OWN Interview Fails To Get Big Ratings

During her interview with Oprah Winfrey on Sunday, Lindsay Lohan said she’s “present and clear-headed and focused,” but it appears TV viewers were focused on watching something else.

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.
