Despite creating a slew of original content, OWN has still been struggling in the ratings over the past couple of months, with Oprah’s personal and easy interviews coloring the network as one of its only bright spots on Sunday night. Having a chat with Michael Jackson’s daughter is a tough act to follow, but Oprah’s network is going to give it a go when they give the Kardashian clan an in interview in a few days.
On June 17, Oprah actually has a big night planned featuring two brand new episodes airing in a row. According to Deadline, the first is the big Kardashian family event, which is actually being branded as the Kardashian’s “first” televised interview. The network seems to be hoping for leftover viewers afterward, as Oprah’s Next Chapters’ extra hour will be devoted to an interview with former Formula 50 Vitamin Water Owner 50 Cent.
I think it is a little ridiculous the Kardashian family has never come together as a family for a televised interview, when all of their lives are well-documented on the television. One would think E! would have capitalized on a big group interview years ago. It’s probably complicated to get them all together for a television interview, and it is a testament to Oprah’s staying power that OWN was able to procure an interview before the famous family’s parent network.
If you are excited to hear about babies and relationships, you can catch the interview on OWN on Sunday, June 17 at 9 p.m. ET. Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson’s interview will follow at 9 p.m. ET.
