Iyanla Fix My Life

OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network, the other black TV network, announced today that it has ordered additional episodes of its popular Saturday night original series Iyanla: Fix My Life, Raising Whitley and Life with LaToya.

Iyanla: Fix My Life, currently in its second season, will return to the network's Saturday night lineup with six all-new episodes beginning Saturday, July 20 at 9 p.m. The network has ordered 10 additional episodes of Raising Whitley (Saturdays at 9 p.m.) and 12 new episodes of Life with La Toya (Saturdays at 9:30 p.m.). 

The new episodes will air in early 2014.

"We have seen tremendous ratings growth this year and much of that success is attributed to the performance of our Saturday night series," said Erik Logan, president, OWN. "Our audience has truly embraced these shows and the stories told every week."

"These series have been instrumental in our efforts to build a lineup of programs that appeal to viewers across multiple genres," said Sheri Salata, president, OWN. "The new episodes will continue to deliver insight, laughter, inspiration and entertainment for our expanding audience."

For the month of May, Iyanla: Fix My Life, Raising Whitley and Life with La Toya were Saturday night's top three original series (non-sports) in all of television among African American women, propelling OWN to rank as the #1 ad-supported cable network (non-sports) on Saturday night for African American women 25-54.

More hits for OWN, a network that's apparently having its best year ever!

    Interesting that I had the opposite experience -- than Ghost did -- with my cable system. I have Comcast/Xfinity, and OWN was a pay channel for, at least, 18 months. Then suddenly - BAM! -- one day I was surfing and noticed it was available. ... Same thing happened, recently, with FBN (Fox Business News).

    After a rocky start ratings are starting to look good for Own thanks to these new tv sitcoms and Tyler Perry hit tv shows.

    Odd that ratings go up as it gets removed from certain tv/cable packages. It would cost me another $20 a month to change plans just to get Own (and 3 other channels that I don't watch).
    So for many if they want to see those shows, they better hope for dvd.
