Oprah's Ratings Slide
Oprah Winfrey may be shutting down her once-dominant daytime talk show none too soon. Latest daytime ratings released by Nielsen on Wednesday indicated that Winfrey's syndicated talk show produced the lowest ratings in its 24-year history last week, falling below a 3.0 rating for the first time ever to a 2.9. Judge Judy remained at the top of the daytime list with a 4.0 rating. She has held the top spot on all but two of the past 16 weeks.
