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?

    Well, Oprah got the interview because she was a friend of Whitney's for years, but I still think this is too soon to broadcast a worldwide interview about how they're doing less than a month after Whitney was put in the ground.

    Yes very true you can argue that it's too soon. But Oprah was left with a decision: wait out of respect for the family or to grab it now before someone beat her to it. She decided to go for it. That's the cutthroat Oprah that I was referring to. It came down to ratings vs. respect and ratings won
