The show climbed to a 6.1 household rating for the week ending Nov. 14, trailing only “Wheel of Fortune” among non-sports shows. The figure for “Oprah” was up 18% from the previous week.
“Wheel” had a 7.5 household rating. ESPN’s football telecast is also included in the rankings, and tops the list with a 9.7 rating.

Right behind “Oprah” was “Two and a Half Men,” with a 6.0 household rating, followed by “Jeopardy!” (5.9) and “Family Guy” (4.7).
