Her TV show lost 7 percent of its ratings year over year. Circulation of her magazine is down 10 percent over the past three years. And “Oprah’s Big Give” didn’t do nearly as well as ABC had expected and she chose not to do another installment.

The story speculated that her endorsement of Barack Obama turned off her more conservative viewers and Hillary Clinton fans.

(She has virtually stopped actively campaigning for him, though.)
Daily ratings for her talks how was 7.3 million, down from 7.8 million a year ago. Her show peaked at about 9 million in 2004-05.

It’s still by far the No. 1 talk show and has been for more than 9 years.
Locally, her ratings in May 2008 were down an alarming 30 percent to 125,000 or so households from nearly 180,000.

(Then again, “Dr. Phil” is down 30 percent in Atlanta, too, as is “Ellen.”)

The New York Times wrote a piece Monday about Oprah Winfrey’s empire showing some signs of weakness..

Hi Robyn,
Thanks for that info on prayers. That was the account I couldn't think of. As soon as I read the name it clicked and I knew that's where I'd read that God had heard an unbeliever's prayers. Thanks for finding that for me and posting it on my site to be sure I'd see it. I knew I had read somewhere where God had said He heard the prayers of a unbeliever.

Do you think Oprah's decline is just part of the fickle TV industry or do you think it has anything to do with the "religion" she's pushing? I think that has a lot to do with it.

I enjoy your posts. Personally I'm worried that Obama might just be our next president. If so, I'm afraid America is in for decline. I had so hoped that the first black American to run for president would be someone I could vote for. Same with the first woman to run for president. Why did it have to be Hillary Clinton!!!

In Christ's name,
Calaveras County CA

I think I misspelled your name. Sorry I have it written in my log as Robin and don't know why I spelled it with a "y." Sorry!
