Winfrey’s OWN brought in strong ratings for the past 12 months, highlighted by the critically acclaimed debut of scripted drama “Queen Sugar.” And a few months earlier, another new drama series, “Greenleaf,” premiered to the network’s biggest audience ever. “Oprah’s ‘Greenleaf’s’ success coupled with [Tyler Perry’s] hugely successful scripted series already on OWN has made OWN the number one channel for African-American women and a top ten cable network in America for all women, which is really incredible considering OWN didn’t exist five years ago,” Discovery Communications CEO David Zaslav said during the company’s recent earnings call. OWN’s growing viewership and buzz is proof positive that Winfrey is still deserving of the title “Queen of All Media.”
