Subject: Oprah Winfrey Network Orders More Episodes of "Welcome To Sweetie Pies"
SAY WHAT? OWN finally has a hit show? I'm referring to their reality program "Welcome to Sweetie Pie's" and being grateful, the network has ordered an addtional 10 more episodes of the show, bringing the total to 18 episodes to date. The new episodes start shooting next month to air in the spring.
The show follows the lives, loves and struggles of Robbie Montgomery and her family, who run the well knownSweetie Pie's soul food restaurant in St. Louis. The network claims that the show "made ratings waves," up73 percent from a year earlier, and the most recent episode was the high rated show ever.
According to Sheri Salata, co-president of OWN: "We've all fallen in love with the Montgomery family. You never know what they'll do or say next. We couldn't be more pleased viewers are tuning in to enjoy all the fun."
Just goes to show what people have been saying all along - just put some black people on OWN and watch viewers tune in.
