It was very much a have night for Oprah Winfrey’s 4-year old TV network on Tuesday. The mid-season return of The Haves And The Have Nots drew 3.3 million viewers with a 2.80 rating among OWN’s core demo of W25-43. Inching ahead of 3.22 million who tuned in for the Season 2 premiere this January of the Tyler Perry-produced series, last night’s Season 2B debut is now the most watched opener in OWN’s history.
The W25-54 result is an all-time premiere high for THATHN and OWN. The previous demo high for the OWN hit was a 2.63 back in 2014. The Haves And Have Nots was the top-rated scripted original show on cable last night among adults 18-49 with a 0.9. With a 1.0 result, Discovery’s Deadliest Catch took the No. 1 spot. However, last night’s THATHN was also the top-rated W25-54 of all cable on Tuesday.
