Rosie O'Donnell Beats Oprah Winfrey on Her Own Network

But neither had huge ratings

On the tails of a $15 million media blitz to hype OWN’s new fall lineup, Oprah Winfrey’s network premiered two new offerings Monday night: Rosie O’Donnell’s talk show, The Rosie Show, followed by Winfrey’s self-help series, Oprah’s Lifeclass. Despite this being the Oprah Winfrey Network, it was O’Donnell’s show—not Winfrey’s—that reeled in the most viewers.
