More than 17 million viewers tuned into Oprah’s interview with Meghan and Harry, making it one of the most-viewed non-sports event on broadcast TV this year

meghan and oprah
  • More than 17 million people watched Harry and Meghan’s no-holds-barred interview with Oprah Winfrey.
  • The couple shed light on racism, mental health struggles, and being frozen out of the Royal family.
  • According to Nielsen ratings, viewers between the ages of 18-49 and 25-54 made up most of the views.
  • Visit the Business section of Insider for more stories.

Oprah Winfrey’s highly-anticipated interview with Harry and Meghan drew in a high number of viewers, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The tell-all special, produced by Winfrey’s Harpo Productions, netted an average of 17.14 million viewers during its two-hour run time, according to Nielsen’s “fast numbers,” The Hollywood Reporter said.

So far, the only two televised events to top that figure this year were the 2021 Super Bowl, which had 96.4 million viewers according to ESPN, and an episode of the TV show “The Equalizer,” which had 20.4 million viewers and aired directly after the Super Bowl on CBS.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Winfrey’s interview with Harry and Meghan was the most-watched TV event on Sunday, with almost twice as many viewers as Sunday’s airing of “60 minutes.” The interview was most popular with two groups of viewers, those between the ages of 18-49 and 25-54.

The initial ratings and early data do not include views via streaming, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, the figures may continue to climb when more ratings are released Tuesday after the interview is broadcast in different markets.

During the interview, Meghan Markle, later joined by Harry, shed light on dealing with racism, mental health issues, and media harassment during their stint at Buckingham Palace.

Harry said he was “disappointed,” in his father for not standing up for Meghan and the couple revealed that Royal family members had conversations and concerns about the color of their son Archie’s king color prior to his birth.

At this point, with numbers subject to increase, the interview was not the highest-viewed on American broadcast networks. Anderson Cooper’s “60 Minutes” interview with Stormy Daniels in 2018 netted 21.3 million viewers, according to Deadline.

Meghan Markle told Oprah that her first job was working at a frozen yogurt store, Humphrey Yogart, in LA when she was 13

Meghan Markle sits down for an interview with Oprah Winfrey on March 7.

  • Meghan Markle told Oprah her first job was serving frozen yogurt at Humphrey Yogart in LA.
  • She met her idol Yasmine Bleeth, who starred as a lifeguard on “Baywatch,” while working there.
  • Markle was 13 at the time. Her old boss said she was outgoing and popular with customers.
  • Visit the Business section of Insider for more stories.

Meghan Markle’s first job was serving frozen yogurt at a store in LA when she was 13, she told Oprah Winfrey in an interview that aired on Sunday.

In the interview with Markle and her husband, Prince Harry, the Duchess of Sussex spoke about contemplating suicide after getting married, how members of the royal family had conversations about her son Archie’s skin tone, and how Kate Middleton made her cry before her wedding.

In another portion of the interview, Markle briefly mentioned the yogurt store she worked at in Sherman Oaks, California. 

Markle, who announced she was stepping back from the royal family with Harry in January 2020, told Winfrey: “My first job was when I was 13, at a frozen yogurt shop called Humphrey Yogart.”

“I’ve always worked. I’ve always valued independence,” she added.

She didn’t go into any further details in the interview. It’s unclear exactly when Meghan worked at Humphrey Yogart, but she would have been there sometime in 1994.

Markle’s employment at the shop was already known about. According to a report in The Guardian, when Markle was taking the bins out in the parking lot of the yogurt shop, she met her celebrity idol, Yasmine Bleeth, who starred as lifeguard Caroline Holden on “Baywatch.”

Markle blurted out “Oh my God, I loved you in that Soft & Dri commercial,” to which Bleeth answered, “Okay, thank you!,” The Mirror reported in 2017

Bleeth then asked for her name and shook her hand. Markle said: “That moment with Yasmine is exactly what I base every interaction with fans on,” per the Guardian.

Markle’s former boss Paula Sheftel told the Sunday Mirror that Markle didn’t earn much, but she was well-liked by the shop’s customers.

“She earned minimum wage and was very popular with customers. She had to prove she had an outgoing personality and would work well with staff,” Sheftel told the Mirror.

Markle has come a long way since then. After landing various small roles, including appearing as a suitcase girl on the game show “Deal or No Deal,” the actress got her big break on “Suits.” 

Markle married Harry on May 19, 2018 and they had their first child together one year later.

During the Sunday interview, the couple also announced that their second child, due this summer, would be a girl. They haven’t announced an expected due date.

Roughly one year after they left their royal duties behind, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will discuss their big exit during a new interview tonight on CBS. 

The interview, conducted by Oprah Winfrey, is a two-hour primetime special that will touch on some of the reasons for their departure. In clips from the program, Markle discusses the royal family’s role in spreading misinformation about her. Markle also tells Winfrey about feeling pressured to decline interviews with her while she was a member of the royal family. The program will run from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. ET.

CBS filmed the interview before bullying accusations were made against Markle from a number of staff members at Buckingham Palace. On March 3, Buckingham Palace announced it would investigate the accusations.

If you want to catch Oprah Winfrey’s interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, here’s how you can watch it tonight on CBS through cable and streaming services.

How to watch ‘Oprah with Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special’

“Oprah with Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special” will air on March 7 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. You can watch the program on cable, over-the-air TV, or streaming services with CBS.

You can also stream the interview on CBS.com if you have an authenticated cable plan.

Streaming services with CBS

For easy streaming access to CBS, we recommend Paramount Plus (formerly CBS All Access). The subscription service costs $6 a month for the ad-supported plan, or $10 a month for the commercial-free plan. With that said, the ad-free option still has commercials during live TV. 

Both plans currently include access to your local CBS network in most markets. You can see a full list of supported areas here. Subscribers also get access to a huge library of on-demand shows and movies. You can find more information about the service in our full Paramount Plus guide.

If you want to try Paramount Plus, you can sign up for a one-month free trial. However, if you want to continue watching live CBS through the service in the months to come, be aware that the $6/month ad-supported plan will drop to a new $5/month plan in June. The new ad-supported plan will not include live CBS.

Plus Monthly Subscription (small)

Outside of Paramount Plus, Locast is another streaming option with access to CBS. The non-profit service offers dozens of local streaming channels for free in 29 markets across the country.

On the downside, Locast interrupts its streams with donation requests unless you pay the $5 a month donation fee. Its app is also very limited and it only includes local stations. 

Streaming Subscription (small)

You can also watch CBS on other live TV streaming services, such as Hulu + Live TV, Fubo TV, YouTube TV, and AT&T TV.

Those streaming services cost significantly more than Paramount Plus, however, with starting prices ranging between $65 and $70 a month. On the plus side, they all provide a larger selection of live channels, including other local stations and several cable networks.

If you’re looking for a true cable alternative, and not just a simple method to stream CBS, then it’s worth paying the extra money for one of these platforms.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle interview with Oprah will cost CBS at least $7 million to air, per report

After days of tantalizing tidbits and escalating accusations, the highly anticipated Prince Harry and Meghan Markle interview is nearly here, and one broadcast network is betting the big event will be worth the wait – and the money. 

ViacomCBS is paying between $7 million and $9 million for the rights to air the royal couple’s two-hour, primetime interview with Oprah Winfrey, according to the Wall Street Journal. 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, however, are not being compensated for the interview, the outlet reported.

The special “tell-all” interview will premiere on CBS in the US at 8 p.m. EST/PST and 7 p.m. CT Sunday, one of the most popular nights of the week for television events.

According to the Journal, the multi-million dollar deal also guarantees the network the rights to license the interview internationally. ITV will air the interview on Monday at 9 p.m. local time in the UK.

The transaction was part of a deal made between CBS and Winfrey’s production company, Harpo Productions, the Journal reported. Harpo also reportedly pitched the exclusive event to Comcast’s NBC and Walt Disney’s ABC before a deal was settled with CBS.

Winfrey has past history with CBS, where she briefly worked as a special contributor for the company’s “60 Minutes” team. She also maintains a longstanding relationship with Gayle King, a prominent CBS News anchor. 

The broadcast network sought nearly double the normal price of comparable ad time, roughly $325,000 for 30-second commercials during the interview, according to the Journal. 

The well-known rift between the royal couple and Buckingham Palace intensified in recent days ahead of the explosive interview. Tensions over the duo’s public departure from royal life last year erupted this week in an unprecedented media war between the couple and the palace.  

On Wednesday, the normally tight-lipped royal household announced it would launch an investigation into allegations that Meghan bullied palace staff, charges the Sussexes have painted as a smear campaign encouraged by Buckingham Palace itself.

The couple moved to California last year and struck a deal with Netflix to form their own production company focusing on creating documentaries, docu-series, feature films, scripted television shows, and children’s programming.

Interest in the couple’s Sunday interview has skyrocketed as CBS has released teaser clips and commercials in recent days in which the royal duo discuss their infamous departure.

In one clip, Winfrey asks Markle how she thinks the palace would respond to her opening up about her frustrating experience.

“I don’t know how they could expect that after all of this time, we would still just be silent if there is an active role that ‘the firm’ is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us,” Markle said. “If that comes with the risk of losing things, I mean, there’s a lot that’s been lost already.”
