The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) turned a year old on Sunday, but there wasn’t a whole lot to celebrate. Ratings for the fledgling network “have been a major disappointment,” says Elizabeth Blair at NPR, and the media has seized on OWN’s failure to fulfill its Oprah-sized expectations. Hoping to reverse the negative trend, the former talk show host is getting back in front of the camera. “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” a reality series that follows Winfrey as she tours the world interviewing celebrities and trying out new experiences, debuted Sunday night.
