First TV Spot For Oprah's Interview With Whitney Houston's Family

It's fair to say that ever since Oprah launched the OWN network, she's been way off her usual game. The ratings, with the exception of one or two shows, have not been what had been hoped.

She seems to have miscalculated what the people want. We want drama! We want tragedy! We want blood! She used to do that brilliantly on her old syndicated talk show, but seemed somehow adrift on her own network.

But that will all change when she interviews Whitney Houston's sister, brother and daughter on her OWN show Oprah's Next Chapter on Sunday March 11 9PM (8 PM Central).

You know that everyone was jumping out of windows trying to be the first one to get the first exclusive interview with them and Oprah got it. How could she not?

She knows how to play the game and when she's on top of it, she plays it very well. This is the Oprah I like. Not the spiritual holier than thou, sanctimonious, Pope Oprah I, but the cutthroat, I-will-eviscerate-and-eat-you-alive-for-ratings Oprah. And of course she's already promoting it on her network, which, no doubt, will be the single biggest ratings success that OWN has ever had to date.

The question is how can she top this?
