Oprah Finale RatingsOprah Finale Ratings, You saw her. Her co-worker saw her. You know your mother was watching. But how many Americans tuned in to watch Oprah Winfrey, an emotional issue, and indeed, last month instead of education-bye? Well, the figures in the final ratings are Oprah Winfrey. So, how do? What gets her swan song become its most watched episode in 25 years on the air the answers, respectively: really big. And, no.

According to Nielsen, the May 23 finale of the institution during the day drew in a whopping 16.4 million viewers, putting not only leagues above normal day numbers, and ahead of most primetime fare, too.

Want some comparisons? Here you go: this week, NBC’s widely praised The Voice got its best ratings, however, with 14.4 million viewers. Much less than Oprah has. America’s Got Talent also made records this week, airing the best season-opening ever, with 15.3 million viewers. Less than Oprah. And as for the water cooler moments provided by the MTV Movie Awards? Well, he won just 4.5 million viewers. Less than Oprah Way.

Want a little background history final? She also beat the final series of Lost (only 12.7 million).

Ironically, Oprah’s ratings, while extraordinarily massive, if not the highest in its history. I guess the biggest competition has always been really Oprah herself.

It turns out that the honor of going down in history as one of Winfrey’s most watched episode ever going to an episode that aired in 1993 entitled “Why I love older women.” Which attracted a whopping (especially in 1993) 17.3 million viewers. All this without the help of a car full of fat. (And long before anyone had ever used the word “puma” outside the context of the animal world. That Oprah provided the head of her time.)

Meanwhile, Oprah, of course, ended her series on a high, averaging 8.2 million viewers during the month of May. Her two stellar surprise penultimate episode, meanwhile, averaged 12.3 and 13 million viewers, respectively.
