Oprah Winfrey's Cable Channel has Staggering Losses of Over $330 Million Dollars!

Bad news for Oprah!  Her cable network vision and dream, OWN, has been handed devastating financial numbers, according to a piece out from the New York Post!

According to the NY Post: “The losses at Oprah Winfrey’s stumbling cable channel are approaching a staggering $330 million, according to a report over the weekend.  And now industry insiders are predicting the Oprah Winfrey Network will not be able to survive another year if it does not find a hit show and make a dramatic turnaround.  Discovery, which partnered 50-50 with Winfrey to launch the network and has been underwriting its costs, has invested nearly $600 million in it since 2008, according to an extensive report in Business Week magazine.”  David Zaslav, the chief executive officer of Discovery Communications who talked Oprah into the idea of OWN, is famously impatient with money-losing operations within his company.  “I really can’t see Zaslav losing this kind of money for much longer,” one longtime business associate said last week.

As for Winfrey, She appeared before major advertisers two week ago to ask for more time!  “I am in the climb of my life,” she told them. “I am climbing Kilimanjaro.”  Though Winfrey herself has relatively little money invested in the channel, her image as the most successful TV star of her generation is on the line.

So what type of programming do you think could save OWN?  Do you think the inspirational channel’s message is a tune-out for most viewers?  Was it a mistake for Oprah to leave her daytime talk series after 25 years? And on that note, who would you rather see, Oprah or Katie?

I agree. She should have. They people would have paid the extra $30 (in some areas) to get her channel. More viewers, more revenue.

She quickly turned down helping to bail out the soaps that she claimed to love – AMC and OLTL, since she didn’t think she could make money on them. Look at the junk she has on her network – reality shows (whose reality???), her friend Gayle seems to be guaranteed a job wherever Oprah goes. The article says O has little of her own money invested…why not kick some cash in, give our soaps another chance. After Oprah turned them down, I have little interest in her network.

Yes when Oprah turned her back on soapfans we realized Oprah was a heartless person. The TV program only had her name and was run by the real caring people behind the scenes. Who does she think was watching when her show followed GH ?

Welcome to Sweetie Pies and Are You Normal what is she thinking? She lost all her fans that needed her to save our soaps so now she is going down fast-now she thinks these 2 stupid shows one reality(really) and a game show(o please) is going to save her-thats not gonea happen NO ONE WANTS ANOTHER GAME OR REALITY SHOW WAKE UP OPRAH WE WANT OUR STORIES

Maybe if she took AMC and OLTL on her network from day one, that would gain viewer interest; then look for a time slot once the views are there for new episodes.

Put One Life To Live back on and the viewers and dedication will follow! Right your wrong Oprah Winfrey!

Hmmm Oprah or Katie how about neither! They all told us soaps were dead you know that we would like to watch Oprah talk to a man who was married to a woman with two heads! How about this, lets sit down and tune into ATWT,AMC,OLTL,Guiding Light,and Another World. What do you think?

At this point, I am not sure what can save OWN, but putting AMC and OLTL on her Network certainly could not have hurt, and could have possibly helped by bringing in new viewers. I am sure if you ask people what channel OWN is on their cable networks, a majority of them will not know.

hello michael fairman i have written you many times about oprah winfrey. put all my children and one life to live on own. but oprah winfrey did say no to the soap operas. now she is desperate. please oprah i am giving you one more chance. put the soaps on your network and you will see your ratings going up and up. if you don’t listen to us your network is cancelled.

This is, as Carolyn Hinsey says, “Only My Opinion”, but I think Oprah would be much more successful if she added more variety to her programming.

Most of Oprah’s shows are some sort of reality/life/talk show, which doesn’t really appeal to everyone. And the other shows she has (the crime/murder documentaries) can easily be found on other channels (I.D/Bio).

I think what she needs is one show of each genre like PBS and affiliates do. Put in an hour of news, an hour of drama (I don’t really care if it’s a soap or not), an hour of comedy (could be a sitcom or a stand-up routine like “Live At The Apollo” does; just as long as its not a dumbed-down type show). Put in an hour of reality as well (PBS does). And heck, maybe even add an hour of classic shows. Do a Friday night movie or something (and pick a movie that appeals to all). I could go on but I think the general idea has been made.

Now I could be wrong. They could go with these suggestions and the channel could still wind up tanking in the end. But I think that these suggestions could really help with the ratings. As Carolyn Hinsey says, “It’s Only My Opinion”.

David Larsson

I’d also just like to say that whether it’s Katie or Oprah hosting, I still wouldn’t watch. Talk shows really just don’t interest me. If I watch any talk show at all, it’s usually Ellen.

What you said is such common sense. OWN is doomed because Oprah cannot realize this.

Well anyone that thnks people wants to see lifestyle shows non stop is nuts.Looks like these other networks would see this to.Look at ABC and NBC they seem to think that is what daytime should be,Talk,lifestyle and cooking.More and more cable channels are going into scripted shows.Looks like these nitwits would see dime a dozen talk,reality and cooking shows or over and everyone is tired of them.She needs some soaps to draw attention to her network.ABC soapers are lost without there soaps and would be more then grateful to watch Own if they where there.She needs to see her vision is as bad as ABC.s.

Perhaps Oprah should have produced All My Children and One Life to Live, instead of alienating millions of daytime fans by refusing to do so. Those same fans who watched her show for years — and she simply kicked them to the curb. I have never watched OWN and I am disgusted with the huge amount of money invested in her network — only to have it fail. Shame, shame.

MBmomof3

Amen! I have NEVER once watched OWN. None of the programming looked remotely interesting. All that money wasted and millions of disappointed soap fans. Karma anyone?

I couldn’t have said it better, Sadie. What a waste of financial resources by OWN not backing the soaps. What viewer loyalty exists on any one show on her network these days? Only the soaps have loyal viewers.

“One Life To Live” is the only thing that will make me tune back in to any daytime television other than “General Hospital, since that show now has a crossover with “One Life To Live”

Gee, I wonder what programming could possibly save the troubled OWN network? HMMM, let me see…..(scratching my head). Sounds like she should have taken another look at the soaps. I know AMC & OLTL alone could not save her network, but its a good start. Building programming around those shows would have worked out so much better for her, than all those self-help programs that she’s pumping out on OWN. She really should have stuck to the format of talk shows or news in the morning, then soaps following those programs, then her reality and self-help programs following that…..that way you build an audience from a little bit of the new and a little bit of the familiar. I don’t know why she couldn’t figure that out. Losing almost half a billion dollars is not a good sign for her. And I have a feeling that things would have turned out much differently for her, had she not abruptly turned her back on the daytime viewing audience that made her who she is today.

Linda
Linda

If only she said yes to saving AMC and OLTL. Sure it would have been a big initial cost but she would have gained a very large audience. She also could have made deals with corporations for product placement on the soaps. Bad decision on her part.

Mary

Wow, those are some big losses! As a soap fan, I can`t help but feel that Oprah made a huge mistake not bringing on the cancelled soaps onto her network. She would have had a built in audience of millions and would have been proclaimed a heroine for doing it! Maybe it`s not too late to go that route? Wouldn`t that be wonderful?!?!

You should have picked up the soaps Oprah, then you would have gained the support of all those loyal fans.

Seems this cable net was launched without much forethought. Not even mentioning the availability and such on systems, the programming menu is odd. There is nothing that stands out. And not even a larger-than-life personality is enough here. Where are the solid unique off-broadcast reruns (other than those of her “progeny?”? Are there scripted series in development? I wonder if the refusal to pick up daytime dramas may have been a lost opportunity. Has she reached out to the men’s audience? There is no event programming or appointment programming to get me to own OWN. Find what’s missing and fill the void with something successful. I for one am done with reality and weak competition shows, and banal talkers.

david
david

No forethought and planning seems right. Oprah probably assumed OWN would be a success based on her past successes and because Discovery offered to invest. Employing her friends, without network experience, probably didn’t help either.

Oprah turned down producing soaps because she thought scripted series were too expensive to produce, but compared to what OWN has lost, this was a mistake. One daily soap would have brought at least a couple of million viewers to her channel everyday, which she desperately needs.

There is no viable programming she can develop and implement fast enough to reverse these monetary losses and generate revenue. Oprah reached her level of incompetence and is going dOWN.

Oprah missed a great opportunity to pick up 2.5 million soap fans who were cast aside when ABC cancelled #AMC & OLTL. Karma is a bitch, ain’t it Ms. Winfrey!

Eileen Hargis

Serves her right, she could have saved a soap or two, picked up 2.5 million new viewers and sailed into financial stability with het network, she didnt and now she is paying the price for a stupid decision. Soaps could be her lifeline!

Maybe if Oprah listened to the soap fans by putting One Life To Live and All My Children on OWN, this disaster of a network could be saved…

barbara t
barbara t

What kind of programming do I think could have saved own? Certainly none of the garbage she has on now, I think she should have tried to save One of the soaps, One life to live, I dont think all my children was all that good even though I did watch it every day for as long as it was on, Having that rosey show was another mistake, And that inspirational crap forget it. I think she should have stayed on her talk show that was a sure bet for her, I think she let a lot of things go to her head, I never watched it. If I have a choice of which talk show I would watch, oprah or katie, neither of these women would get my vote there a waste of time. I’m not saying the soaps would have helped oprah get good ratings but a lot of all my children and one life to live fans would have tuned in and possibly watch her other shows.Looks like oprah is not a very good business women and like abc/disney she should have paid attention to the fans. Then again who knows the rat channel would never give up the rights to the soaps,Maybe oprah should quit before she goes deeper in debt or put some quality programming on. Stay away from Talk, food, Inspirational, rosey, bad writers, and self help garbage.People can tune into abc for that nonsense.

david

It was hubris to think Oprah could develop and run a network based on the success of her one talk show. It’s interesting Oprah has little of her own money invested in her OWN channel. She’s been playing with the investments of others and apparently has little to lose herself. Oprah has consistently lost money with inexpensive reality programming and she has no money to produce quality fictional drama. OWN is finished.

Yes, it was a mistake for Oprah to cancel her daytime talk show, if she wanted a steady source of income, but she couldn’t have taken on developing OWN otherwise. I don’t care about either Oprah or Katie. Celebrity interviews don’t appeal to me. Talk is cheap.

That statement of David’s was really sad. If that’s the David I know (from on here) he needs to be ashame of himself. I’m in shock and surprised bc my David accesses fair judgement- I dont believe its the same David. No way!

Heather replied May 24th, 2012 at 11:39 pm:
This David is not the same as the one we’re used to. This David sign his name as “DAVID” whereas our David sign his name as “david”.

To david: I didn’t think it was you, ‘our david ‘ as I stated. You see (above) I wrote, nah….! I also mentioned in my post, that you usually render with fair judgement. When you get to know people on this site, the way they talk and think about things, you almost feel that you know them, and question if they are out of character. I know you speak ‘ too’ intellectual for this kind of talk that DAVID said. lol

If Oprah wants viewers, might I suggest (again) OLTL, AMC, GH, GL, OLTL, should I go on, or do you catch my drift? Oprah had a chance to save AMC and OLTL and she said they were money losing dogs. I have loved Oprah for many years, but after her dismissal of soap fans, I’m lost interest in her and her network. And I am only one of millions who feel this way. Oprah, can you hear me now??

Hey Ms. Winfrey, You should have gone with All My Children and One Life to Live. They had a built in audience and they would have brought the revenue you need. Your message to us was cold. You told us everything has its time. Well…………… I don’t wish failure on anyone, but sometimes karma comes back to bite.

I tried to watch OWN once or twice and it was really horrid. I am wondering with the numbers ($$) listed above, if the soaps would not have been a better investment. But it seems that ship has sailed, and I don’t wish Oprah any ill will, but I do wonder if she wishes she had handled the soap situation differently.

I think that if Oprah would pick up AMC and OLTL it has a very good chance to turn itself around, Like we told Oprah in the beginning when all this started over a year ago pick up these 2 soaps and you will have an instant fan base of millions but she choose to turn her back on us and what she got was KARMA.

Oprah had a chance to add million of viewers to her new Network if she would have stuck by her daytime viewers and pickup either All My Children or One Life to Live OR Both. Soap fan have long memories and will not forget how Oprah talked that the Soap genre was a time that had passed. I forgot one will never not get that Oprah had a chance to save our beloved shows and she chose not too.

I would rather see Orah is she did the right thing, but I have lost respest for her. Maybe she should try rebroasting of classic soaps and see if that helps. Then she can put her foot in her mouth and take on one of the two cancelled ABC soaps and bring it back into production. I thinkg she would see a dramatic change.

You’d think ABC would take a lesson from owns failure.People want good scrpited shows not junk talk reality. cooking a nd lifestyle.I have seen only one network keeping there full line up of soaps and tht is CBS and keeping scripted shows like soaps keep people coming back.You then see there nighttime lineup and are more likely to watch.ABC needs to get rid of there stupis dictator and take a new look at what Own has done.Get the soaps Oprah we’ll come.

Bet the soap opera idea isn’t looking so beneath you now, now is it? Get in touch with Prospect Park and ask to buy the AMC and OLTL rights from them.

To answer your questions Michael, it wasn’t a mistake for Oprah to leave after 25 years. I can understand her wanting to move on and evolve through new projects. I don’t even think her programs or their messages were the problem either. Building an audience is tough; we’re a HUGE variable and a big name associated doesn’t equate success. Casting Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp in a movie, two of the biggest stars in the world, didn’t make a successful film. She tried, and IMO she made good moves (most of them anyway). Sometimes things don’t work out. Call it a learning experience and move on to the next thing.

Jan

Frankly, my thoughts are that any entity or person who ignores the people is doomed to fail. Oprah ignored the please of soap fans to rescue our soaps and chose to go a different way. ABC/Disney cut us off at the pass and is now finding it to be a poor decision. WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND. I personally don’t want to see eiother of them, what I want is for someone to STAND UP TO BIG MONEY and listen to the PEOPLE who put them where they are, fat wallets and all! Give us our soaps back and see how quick things turn around!

Hi Ettel: Found you here near, and commenting to one of my other favorites on this site, Heather. I wrote her a hello message yesterday. Been busy, very and out of comission. Logged on yesterday to say Hi to Barbara t, and before signng off last night, ran into the firestorm of the contstant GH vs. OLTL, posted: May 20, 2012 RATINGS: GH Continues to Gain! #1 in Key 18-34 Demo! I took part in the one on here on May 7th, BUT the May 20th debate, I didn’t take part in. It was a find…. on my part, lol. And yes, I did leave a comment or two. Thing is, I had just sent off my hello message to Barbara t and speaking with her about tme getting tired of the same ole sore debate, GH vs. OneLife, that finds complete strangers on here argrueing like its no bodies business. And then I go to log off, and read how GH is doing in the ratings on May 20th. I see peoples post, and instead of going to bed as I should, I went anf popped me some pop corn, and had a Dr. Pepper, and read post for an hour in a half. Even the sheriff had to come on board, Michael, and tell folk to chill out. Well Ethel, some things never change on here. LOL Susan Lucci been getting some bad press on here, because she said, ” the numbers just weren’t there anymore”. Perhaps that is the truth. A shame when U become a blazz for speaking the truth. Now all of a sudden (because of her comment) people realize just how much Susan is all about Susan. It should not take a comment about Susan speaking the facts to get people to see that Susan and Erica are one in the same. It’s the same with Oprah, they loved her before she said what she said about the endings of the soaps. Now she is mud, and whatever she once did, means nothing. People have to have more objectabilty, NOT objectibility on here. Hey, did you see (below) what David wrote about Oprah in two places, stroll down. Both Barbara t and I comment. That’s not
” our ” David, right? U know, our David, whom we post in Feb, regarding Susan being in the Gloria Estafan video? Nah.

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.

Jason Canela Reveals: “I’m Proud And Honored To Officially Be A Full-Time Member Of The Young and the Restless Family”

Former telenovela star, Jason Canela (Arturo) is staying put in Genoa City.  Canela, who is of Cuban descent, was originally brought on to The Young and the Restless as a building contractor, who winds up being the boy toy of none other than Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott).

Later, his story switched and Arturo has now been romancing and paired with Nikki’s stepdaughter, Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway).

Now as Arturo becomes more entrenched in the Newman clan, Canela posted on his Instagram account that the CBS soap has signed him on as a contract player.

Jason expressed: “I’ve always believed that there are two types of artists. There are working ones and blessed ones. Thankfully I’ve had an incredible support system to always motivate me and help me push forward no matter how tough things got while I was working to become a better version of me so that one day I could be blessed. To every artist out there who feels discouraged because they have not booked that role or gotten that verse picked up in a track just remember that our line of work is not the easiest but if you truly love it then you know that if you continue to PUT IN THE WORK one day you will be blessed. Thank you to Mal Young, Sony, CBS & The Young and the Restless for believing in me and making me feel at home in Genoa city and blessing me with the opportunity to bring life to Arturo Rosales. I’m proud and honored to officially be a full time member of the The Young and the Restless family.” #Blessed #EnjoyEveryMoment
