There can be no denying that Oprah having a secret was good for ratings. The revelations about her unknown half sister fueled the best ratings in nearly six years.
Monday's 'The Oprah Winfrey" show averaged a whopping 9.6 household rating. That's the best ratings for Oprah since February 28, 2005 when she had some of the previous night's Oscar winners as guests. Now if only she could blow some of that 'family secrets' related ratings pixie dust onto OWN.
