When Oprah announced she would be quitting her daytime TV show to launch her own network, some thought it was too ambitious a plan. With poor early ratings and lackluster programming, there were many quick to say that the media mogul had lost her Midas touch. But in late 2012, things began to turn around and in 2013, with the help of her friend Tyler Perry, the once-struggling network started to come into its own. Perry launched the wildly successful The Haves and The Haves Nots and Love Thy Neighbor, earning OWN its best ratings yet.
