We've written before about the many reporters contacting us to try and find ratings backup for an "Oprah ratings are down because she endorsed Obama" story. When we can't provide it, they typically go ahead and write it anyway!

Will Oprah's season premiere ratings quiet these requests? Maybe. For a week.

The talk queen herself, Oprah, opened her new season with a 39 % leap to a 6.1, its highest rating in a year and a half for the week ending Sept. 20.
