With a rebroadcast tonight on CBS, the final numbers are not totally in for the agenda-setting Oprah with Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special. However, the royal sit-down has now clenched the crown of most watched non-sports show of the television season so far. A whooping 61 million around planet have tuned in so far to the Harpo Productions special that was licensed to CBS domestically. The special was distributed internationally by ViacomCBS Global Distribution to dozens of markets.
Associated Newspapers, which owns the U.K. Daily Mail tabloid, has written to ViacomCBS demanding the deletion of “offending content” in Oprah Winfrey’s high-profile interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. Lawyers for Associated Newspapers took exception with images in a newspaper headline montage they claim have been altered or misrepresented and demand that they be edited out of the TV special.
The special, titled Oprah With Meghan and Harry, will feature Winfrey talking with the couple about everything from their marriage to their decision to step away from Britain’s royal family. It’s set to air March 7.
