‘Oprah Winfrey’ Hits All-Time Ratings Low for Week Before July 4th Holiday, Marking the First Time Its Rating Has Dropped Below 3.0

"The Oprah Winfrey Show" reached its lowest weekly ratings in the shows 24-year history, dropping below a 3.0 rating for the first time, reports the New York Post

The CBS Television Distribution syndicated show averaged a 2.9 rating for the week of June 28, drawing 3.8 million viewers. That placed it eighth among syndicated shows, but represented 2 million fewer viewers than "Judge Judy," which has surpassed "Oprah" for 14 of the last 16 weeks, the story says.

"Although the ratings for our summer reruns have declined since last year, ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ continues to hold its place as the No. 1 daytime talk show for the last 24 years," a spokesman for the show said. The show has been in repeats since May and the lower ratings came as the July 4th holiday approached, the story adds.

  1. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  2. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  3. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.
