A Year in Oprah, Inc: From Weight Watchers Woes to Book Club Bestsellers

With 3.04 million viewers, ‘Greenleaf’ was OWN’s most-watched debut to date with ‘Queen Sugar’ being the second biggest hit. OWN is now the number one network for African- American women and in the top ten for all women. Not to mention, The Oprah Winfrey Show being the highest-rated talk show in U.S history. Although that talk show has ended, Oprah continues to stay busy by filming movies, such as ‘The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks,’ and by reopening her book club, ‘Oprah’s Book Club.’ Winfrey also plans on publishing her own cookbook in January of 2017. Additionally, she has purchased 10% stake in the diet company Weight Watchers, agreeing to serve as their spokesperson.
