'Lindsay' Reality Show Not the Big Hit For OWN As Expected


No doubt that

Oprah Winfrey, aside from looking for

a new victim to save, was certain that OWN’s

new and much hyped reality show, Lindsay, on the daily trials and tribulations

of D-lister Lindsey Lohan, which premiered last Sunday night, was going

to be a smash hit for her network.

Well, it turns

out that it wasn’t such a smash after all. Not a total loss, mind you, but

still a disappointment.

While the show did have the best premiere for any reality

show so far in 2014 (but remember it’s only March), the first episode pulled in only 693,000 viewers. Compare that to the

almost 1.5 million total viewers that Oprah’s interview with Lohan got back

last summer.

And compared to

other OWN shows, the Lindsay premiere came in third behind Iyanla: Fix My Life and Life

with La Toya.

The good

news is that, when adding in the numbers for Lindsay, OWN did have its best numbers

in the last month and half.
