Lindsay Lohan's OWN Reality Series Ratings Drop 24 Percent

OWN

Starlet sheds viewers in second week

Don't call it a comeback, because it's not. The ratings for Lindsay Lohan‘s OWN docu-series, “Lindsay,” took a double digit dive in the show's second week.

Sunday's airing of the second episode of “Lindsay” attracted 527,000 total viewers. That's a 24 percent slide from the premiere episode, which brought in 693,184 viewers.

The story gets bleaker when looking at its performance among OWN's target demographic, Women 25-54 years old. The series saw a 36 percent decrease with a demo rating of .36 (versus the premiere's .56 rating).

The bright spot for OWN arrives with the increase in ratings for the time period. It saw a 61 percent increase in total viewers and a 71 percent rise in the key demo for the Sunday 10 p.m. time slot versus the prior six weeks.

When making a year-over-year comparison, OWN saw a 57 percent and 33 percent increase in total viewers and the key demo, respectively.

Yet, it remains to be seen if the show can stabilize its viewership as the season continues.

On Sunday's episode, Lohan was finally able to move into her New York City apartment — made possible by advances from production company Pilgrim Studios on the star's future shooting time for the OWN series. Meanwhile, mother Dina Lohan was arrested for a DUI.

Director Amy Rice and the production company's fears that Lohan wasn't committed to the series heighten next week when Lohan refuses to shoot and forces Oprah Winfrey to fly into New York City to speak with the starlet.

    so viewers are still up from what they were before yet the angle of the story is how it's not doing well. if viewers are up overall that's still a plus for OWN. also, comebacks aren't made on one project but the momentum of projects. what is it that the media has such a bias against this 27 year old woman? she messed up her life and is trying to fix it. i don't remember this much negative media bias against robert downey jr for having the same issues or is it just because he's a man? everyone deserves redemption.

    • pam

      Robert Downey Jr. got plenty of negative press when he was in free fall. When he came out of it, he rebuilt is career in a serious way, wasn't a diva, stayed out of the tabloids (which isn't that hard to do), picked his projects carefully and didn't mistake a reality show that would use his bad choices and misfortune for ratings fodder as a comeback vehicle. If Lohan seriously wants a career comeback, she has to get better at picking projects (her only momentum currently is a continued downward spiral) and she has got to jettison all of those jackals that are surrounding her: her dysfunctional and grasping family, her so-called friends, her apparently incompetent management and OWN.

      • Diane

        everyone has to take their own journey and she's been staying out of trouble so this downward spiral is all in your imagination. her route might not be the same he went on but it doesn't make it any less valid. who are you to say what way is the serious way or if she's serious or not. and no, robert downey jr didn't have the very personal attacks she gets in the media. again, one show isn't a comeback, just as downey jr did a number of projects before he got back to a good place in his career, it took years and it will take her a while to get there too. from the reaction on twitter about her show, many others would disagree with your comment about the docuseries, many see it as a brave thing to do.

        • Guest

          She's also a lot younger than RDJ, a woman and a former child star in a much more aggressive, intrusive media infested web tabloid culture. They're not that comparable to me.

          • skeltoe

            She has never proven to have the talent that RDJ has, and she puts herself out there to be picked on. Coming out of rehab and partying all of the time is beyond stupid and RDJ did not do that, also RDJ didn't ruin his looks from the drug and alcohol abuse. So ur right they are not comparable

          • FUTMZ

            GASP!!!!!

          • Jack

            RDJ has a bigger rap sheet than lilo went to rehab just as much as she did and is just as talented. You're opinion isn't based on facts. Everyone's intitled to there own and that's not why I'm replying. I'm replying because you're being hurtful. If someone questions what u think u can't take it, but u can do it to everyone else? That makes no sense. If u hate her u wouldn't comment Hun.

        • FUTMZ

          “Staying out of trouble”….. at a nightclub, seven mornings a week. Bitch had already guzzled half a carafe of vodka before she even pretended to “eat”.

        • skeltoe

          RDJ was nominated for an Oscar before he went down, Lindsay has been nominated for razzies, there is no comparison, plus RDJ worked his ass off while she parties her ass off. She still hangs out with the same losers and is showing no change in her self centered bitchy behavior, and there are a lot more people rooting against her than for her, so I don't know where ur getting information from on Twitter because ur obviously wrong. Lindsay and her retard family have been over exposed and people are sick of her which RDJ didn't have that. Also that show continuing to go down in ratings is not good for her because it shows just how unbankable she is.

          • Jack

            Razzies mean absolutely nothing!!!!!!

          • skeltoe

            Razzies mean something when ur a has been and that's the only thing ur getting, it reinforces her bad acting

          • Jack

            If she's a has been why did you click on a page that focuses on her?

          • constance

            because i like to see conceited oprah fail-yay

          • Jack

            You're an idiot!

          • Jack

            If u didn't care about her you wouldn't comment. You think she's a has been. I think you're a bigger has been than Lindsay Lohan ever was! You're a loser.

          • fubar

            Jack,maybe you should seek help.you sound as raged out as that fugly idiot milo

        • PEPE

          BRAVE??

          Try ludicrous..as well as a good grift, in order to get:

          -a driver
          -an “assistant”(poor dude)
          -a trainer
          -a luxury apartment
          -”acting” cameos, courtesy of Oprah
          - Ellen interview, courtesy of Oprah
          -attention
          -an outlet to whine

          Too bad Blo also got a MASSIVE ratings plunge..that will continue, as most people are fed up with the pathetic, self-entitled twat known as “LINDSAY.”

          And STOP bringing up RDJ!

          • fubar

            If she is so brave than why when she gets caught does she blame everybody else?coward won't take responsibility for her own actions..brave people don't cry in court begging judges for mercy.

            Or suicide watch for being in jail for a few days.

            Dina thinks she's brave because lindsay can tackle cocaine And vodka all night and wake up sometimes

          • wangson

            damn right fubar!

          • wangson

            and don't forget she got paid a cool 2 million to do this, “reality doc”! she needed cash!

        • fubar

          Dina,to you a Miami drug house and getting kicked out of clubs is “staying out of trouble” your selective amnesia is troubling

        • wangson

          she got paid 2 million to do it. that's not brave, it's desperate and pitiful.

      • Guest

        Her dysfunctional family? You've only seen her interact with her father and mother. So what about the rest of them, have you seen her interact with them? And there hasn't been much of her with Dina either on the show. Who are these so-called friends that are bad for her, what have they done? Are you aware of all of her friends and how much each is around her? And who exactly is apparently incompetent in her management? What has this person or any other person done in her management that has been incompetent?

        • fubar

          You are right..I blame lindsay for being a POS and it's all on her own..enough of the blame game

      • jamison

        Pam , I agree with most of your comments , but the tabloids will always make up stories about private celebrities all the time . Look at Gwyneth Paltrow , Anne Hathaway , Jennifer Lawrence , Halle Berry , Will Smith , etc…. Also , sadly , Lindsay Lohan was never a good actress , but she did show promise in The Parent Trap and in the Prairie Home Companion . Lindsay would be smart to do some stage work with a very meaty role, to show her commitment to acting and her professionalism. Unfortunately , I don't believe she has the talent to act on stage .

    • fubar

      Shouldn't you be tossing hellers salad topay for your defense on your DUI?

      We all know dina has sucked lindsay dry(neck rubber) and can't survive with out being a leach,but shouldn't she had tried working some kind of job ever?
      I know all Lohan's including lindsay are allergic to work,morals and ethics but Damn they don't even show guilt.

      Lindsay looks really old for her age,and that removes her from work in her age bracket but acts too mature to play an older women.her voice is extremely annoying and sounds like she is gasping for air..so with the flabby,scarred,bruised up,jail house tatts, on top of her golem face and voice of a frog with laryngitis I wouldn't hire her for anything.

      Besides she's a convicted liar and thief..even porn doesn't want her

  • FUTMZ

    Most have “bias” against entitled snatches who lie, steal, and violently assault whoever doesn't kiss her butt.

    • jamison

      On this reality show , Lindsay Lohan really proved how arrogant and entitled she truly is , even after getting out of rehab and trying to make a career comeback ( and being paid $2 million dollars ) . Her desperate need to be moved from one hotel room to the next and not wanting to be filmed .

      • Jack

        Someone's judge mental. What the fuck makes you so perfect?! Oh that's right, nothing besides a crappy social life and a humongous ego!

        • wane

          Is that u Lindsay?
          Hey…if it walks & talks like an arrogant…

        • wangson

          what the shit do you care jackass? lohan sympathiser?

      • wangson

        she truly is an absolutely horrible, almost evil degenerate of a person. stupid, self-absorbed, entitled, materialistically driven twats like her are easy to hate.

  • PEPE

    Blo has whined her way through 80% of each episode. Not only did the ratings take a MASSIVE drop this week, “LINDSAY” didn't even place in the top 100 cable shows for the night it was on.

    Among the shows that had higher ratings:

    SpongeBob,
    CUTTHROAT KITCHEN,
    BEACHFRONT BARGAIN HUNT,
    Pawn Stars,
    EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND,
    DINERS, DRIVE INS & DIVES,
    & REAL HOUSEWIVES ATLANTA

    • wangson

      that is absolutely terrific news! I hadn't heard about its ratings this week till now. I hope she takes it to mean that very few people give a shit about her anymore. she's desperately in need of some serious humbling!

  • BobbieFisher

    Please stop calling her a starlet. She's going to be 30 in two and half years. She hasn't had a hit film in over a decade. She's a narcissistic ex-child star. And thank you very much, Amy Rice – for showing what Ms. Lohan really is – a mean, nasty, out of control, hurtful narcissist. Robert Downey Jr never was this mean, neither was Drew Barrymore – because they were really recovering addicts without the horrible narcissism that rages in Lindsay Lohan.

    • Jack

      Get a life. Your not perfect. Your more of a flop than LILO ever was!!!

      • BobbieFisher

        The truth hurts, doesn't it Jack. And in terms of flopping, I have never been fired, never crashed my car while high, never been to jail, never been to court, never carjacked a car with three people, running over the leg of someone, going 100mph blowing through stop signs in Santa Monica and the PCH, never punched people, including my mother, in the face, never won a razzie, never lost $25 million through stupid spending, in fact, I am way, way, way richer than Lohan, and I have a billion times more honesty and integrity – so yes, I am not perfect, but I am exponentially better off than Lindsay Lohan who has flopped more times than a fish on a boat deck.

        • Jack

          What makes you in any place to judge anyone. Everyone makes mistakes you pathetic turd!!!! Lindsay's owned up to her shit. You obviously haven't. Get a life you reject. Youre of no importance to the world. And Lilo makes more money than you do. You're panning helps her career! It doesn't matter what u say, she wants you to talk about her. You fighting with me over a celeb who's trying to better her life, with you talking crap about someone you don't even know, helps her career. You've gotta catch on to how it works.

          • BobbieFisher

            First, no “Jack”, Lilo does not make more money than I do – not by a very, very long shot. Second, you still are not understanding the contraction of you and are. Third, why don't you tell me how it works – I state the truth and then that helps her career? I wish it was that simple. More people need to state the truth – so that maybe, just maybe Lindsay Lohan will get help for her real problem – Narcissistic Personality Disorder. She doesn't own up to her problems – she thought the judge just wanted to “punish” her when they sent her to jail. She still doesn't get it. And lastly – calling me names with your language makes me think you doth protest too much. The mean, rotten apple doesn't fall far from the tree – does it, Michael Lohan?

          • wangson

            AHAHAHA!! nicely put bobbiefisher! jack here is clearly a family member of that freckled, self-absorbed, materialistic sweaty hog. unfortunate for him.

          • melba

            Dina has the personality disorder and a form of Munchhausen By Proxy. She clearly gets off on watching Lindsay unravel. Children of narcissistic people look like they have the disorder, but they are only mirroring behaviors in survival mode. Lindsay is only playing into her mothers pathological need for her to be sick.

          • wangson

            You've really got some serious grammar problems, huh Jack? “What makes you in any place…?” I can't believe you actually wrote that and figured it sounded grammatically sound! Beyond that, you're (Whoa! See how that contraction works, little guy?) clearly a proponent of self-absorbed, materialistic, superficial, entitled and downright piggish behaviour so I presume that you must find yourself in support of a lot of human filth like this whore Lindsay that you're defending here. Obviously you're either unfortunately simple-minded or you're just a poorly educated man (or child) as you clearly put image and appearance ahead of genuine goodness and human decency. Who cares what they're like inside as long as they're pretty and/or wearing some pricey brand name, designer clothing, right? You sound like you're not well-liked, lonely and pathetic. But hey! At least you've got Lindsay's appreciation, right? Sad Jack. Broaden your horizons and begin looking beyond one's appearance. Lindsay Lohan is pure evil. She's a self-absorbed narcissist who obviously believes she's entitled to special treatment. She's like a female Justin Bieber, in that her appeal is limited to the hilariously dumb and/or the very young and immature who're still impressed by flashy colours and expensive fashion. Superficial, materialistic…pitiful and indeed unfortunate. Look for depth in a person, Jack. Appreciate genuine, good-natured people who're pleasant, selfless personalities who concern themselves with the welfare of other people – quite simply, (and just for you Jack) I'm speaking of people who're the exact opposite of Lindsay Lohan. Smarten up Jack!
            And, by the way, you're welcome for the free lesson I've just given you. I think I'll call it, “Teaching Jack How not to be a stupid ass who adores horribly behaved celebrity pigs”.

        Let's compare rap sheets fucktard

      Justin Bieber has her beat in egotistical arrogant part department and celebs are
      telling us he's just being young and having fun.

  • Jim

    Lindsay Lohan's OWN Reality Series Ratings Drop 24 Percent

    Ya don't say!

  • Marcko

    This show deserves the trash heap as much as the network that's running it!

  • Iamexpert

    Almost every show declines after the premier. If she can just stay above the half million viewer mark, it's a success

    • fubar

      It wasn't even in the top 100show for her premier..sponsors are losing..duck dynasty gets 10 million viewers a week.

  • Jack

    This is ridiculous. OWN doesn't get high ratings!!!! This isn't her sole comeback. She has 2 Broke Girls, the new movie … She's hopefully getting better.

    This was therapy for Lindsay. She needs to work to stay sober. If she didn't, she would relapse. That's happened from the beginning of her addiction. My God, why can't we not hate and bully people. She's not Satan she's a person.

    • fubar

      Being at a Miami drug house means she's not sober..Being kicked out of bars and still being broke means it's the same old prostitute lindsay

      • Gabriela

        LMAO omg dude you're like obsessed with Lindsay, you are literally replying to every comment someone has made about her. It is obviously you have no life or better things to do then get on a blog and trash a human being, until you can prove and show that you're a 100 percent better then her that you can talk all the crap you want. until than shut your dolphin mouth because you didn't even had the decency to upload your ugly a** face!

        • BobbieFisher

          Gabriela – it looks like you have your finger in your mouth, just like la Lohan. You two are so alike. You also must think that the majority of America has a rapsheet as long as Lohan's stinky hair extensions – guess what, we don't. The majority of America doesn't have an egocentric view of the law (contrary to Lindsay who thinks jail is “Punishment” (duh) and thinks rehab is a joke). The majority of Americans are law-abiding, have some of the strongest work ethics in the world, speak to each other politely, don't expect favors without returning them, we don't yell at our bosses and colleagues, we don't punch people in the face, we don't blame “The Black Guy” twice for crimes we committed, we don't “Name NAMES” like Lohan so obviously is doing over at InTouch so she can try to get a better book deal and not care if it ruins other people's relationships or brands. We are not perfect Gabriela – but we don't stick our smelly ass fingers in our rotten toothed mouths and think it's sexy. And guess who doesn't have a life – guess who isn't working (besides the one day stunt casting every 6 months) – guess who still doesn't have a house or an apartment of her own – you two are so alike. I'm glad you showed your face, Lohan.

        • fubar

          Easy..let me and lohan compare rap sheets and accomplishments.
          Until then STFU

          • Sarah O Taylor

            You have a rap sheet? And you're proud?
            This is insane and funny all at once. I can't imagine why anyone has a dog in this fight.

          • fubar

            ..

          • fubar

            Comparing the amount of arrests..if you have one ticket or one disorderly conduct than you have a rap sheet.mine are a couple of small infractions and hers should have put her in prison.and I am in my 40s

  • Jack

    Let's not do the “don't call it a comeback” just cuz of ratings.

    • fubar

      No one's watching idiot..so it's another failure in her long list of failures..not one hit in over 10 years

  • Aaron Saltzer

    No wonder why the ratings decreased. The drama with Lindsay gets old after awhile.

  • Jack

    The fact people r talking about it, negative or not, makes it a comeback!

    • BobbieFisher

      Michael, I mean “Jack” – keep telling yourself that because laughter is good for the cardiovascular system.

    • fubar

      People talk about murders too.

  • fubar

    Jack is Milo..you can tell by the terrible grammar..just like his backyard daughter and crazed,drunken ex.

    He's just trying to suck up to lielo.
    Needs to worry about his idiot baby mama Kate and how they will pay for her crimes.

    Damn the Logan's are lazy POS

  • fubar

    Radar has a list of people that have caught diseases off of lindsay..

    Even her own dad said lindsay had aides

    • Sarah O Taylor

      Aides are people who assist you. On that bizarre note, I am out of here!

  • Honey Badger Don't Care

    Remember when Oprah said she was only going to put quality programming on her channel?
    HAHAHAHA

  • Sarah O Taylor

    I won't watch it. I don't slow down to look at dying people in a car wreck either. This girl is so lost, it's sad. But maddening as well, she had so much potential and clearly has no self-worth or interest in staying alive. :(

  • wangson

    MAGICAL!! I absolutely despise this degenerate's almost unbelievably entitled behaviour! as far as her intensely self-absorbed selfishness, her superficial and materialistically driven behaviour this unpleasantly fragrant (I'd guess) narcissist is in a class that only includes paris Hilton and stench kardashian (not guessing here: of course she smells bad!! look at her gigantic and gag-inducingly repugnant, diaper-clad corn wagon! you can practically see the squiggly stink lines emanating from that monstrous deformity!) enough is enough. the world will become an ever-so-slightly nicer, more pleasant, less vulgar place once Lindsay lohan is no longer a part of it. the sooner the better.

  • Suessafluff

    I watched the first week hoping that there was some redeemable quality to her but after seeing what a completely out of touch, raging spoiled little diva she really is, I never want to waste another second of my life on that waste of space. So many more, actually talented people deserve show biz work. Any talent she may have had is completely gone now. It has been replaced by a void and vaccuous fading star, too obsessed with false reality to truly make a comeback. May she finally disappear into obscurity where so can no longer insult our intelligence. She has zero intention if getting sober either. She's on a freight train to the deep end. Good riddance.

  • Slimc74

    Im a 10+ year recovering alcoholic drug addict. I really want to root for this woman, but i think the people and places shes around that enable her self centered behavior is going to be her doom. The malibu “advisor” wont shoot it to her straight. Probably for his fear of losing his hob. I like her strong attitude but she doesnt know how to direct it. She needs a real sponsor and not worry too much about reclaiming ber image. I hope shes reading this. Im pulling for you girl. One day at a time mama.;)

    • DocNefario

      It doesn't take a career alcoholic like you to make calls like that.
