Oprah’s final show was as big as we expected – and the proof is in the numbers. Her Wednesday episode, the last in a three-day “goodbye” special – drew in a 13.3 “household rating,” meaning 15-20 million viewers.
Just a week earlier, she was averaging a 5.4 rating, meaning 7.345 million viewers. So, her finale practically attracted double her usual followers.
Her farewell show earned her best ratings in 17 years!
