TV Ratings: Oprah's Meghan & Harry Interview Draws 17 Million Viewers

Oprah, Harry and Meghan reigned on Sunday night, as CBS’ broadcast of Winfrey’s sitdown with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex absolutely dominated in both total viewers and in the demo.

Leading out of the much-discussed interview, an Equalizer rerun did 5.7 mil and a 0.7.


ABC | AFV (5.3 mil/0.6) and a two-hour American Idol (5.2 mil/0.8) each dropped two tenths.

THE CW | The Critics Choice Awards averaged 340K and a 0.1.

NBC | Leading out of Ellen’s Game of Games (1.5 mil/0.3), Good Girls‘ Season 4 opener (1.6 mil/0.4) was pretty much on par with its previous averages and finale (1.8 mil/0.4).


The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Warning: Contents may be hot!
