Television is an insanely complicated business, and nobody knows that better than Oprah Winfrey.  Her new network OWN, a partnership with Discovery Networks, has faced its fair share of of hurdles in the past couple years, leaving many to wonder if it would survive the incredibly rocky “take off” phase that every new network experiences in its beginning.  But the giant OWN ship looks like it’s finally managed to get into profitable orbit.  The Hollywood Reporter breaks down the reasons why, writing: “The network notched its third consecutive quarter of ratings growth for the recently ended third quarter … [Winfrey’s high-profile interviews] have set ratings records for OWN and showcased Winfrey’s still-formidable booking abilities … [and] “carriage fees” — and, in some cases, increases — that cable and satellite providers pay for OWN are due to kick in next year.”  You can learn more about OWN’s incredible turn around by visiting TheHollywoodReporter.com.  To enter the world of OWN be sure to visit Oprah.com/OWN.
