Sarah Palin Gives Oprah Her Highest Ratings In 2 Years

Beat the ratings of Oprah's interview of Whitney Houston

The last time the ratings were that high was the Osmonds in 2007
Oprah Winfrey's interview with former Alaska governor vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin scored The Oprah Winfrey Show its best ratings in two years.

The CBS Television Distribution talk show hit a 7.2 rating/18 share weighted-metered-market average for all telecasts on Monday, Nov. 16. That's up 36% from last year's 5.3/13 time period average.

The last time Oprah did as well was when the entire Osmond clan appeared on Nov. 9, 2007.
The Palin episode also was the highest rated since this year's season premiere featuring a tell-all interview with Whitney Houston and last year's post-presidential election episode.

That means Palin also topped Oprah's heavily viewed interviews with Whitney Houston at the start of the season. Palin is making the rounds to promote her new book, "Going Rogue," which came out Tuesday.
