Oprah Winfrey and her TV network were once plagued by poor ratings, but now they have a reason to celebrate.

OWN, the first, and so far only, network inspired by a single individual, scored its most-watched quarter in network history, averaging 508,000 total viewers and delivering double-digit growth across all demos versus the previous quarter, making OWN the fastest-growing cable network for women 25-54.

Additionally, quarter 1 marked the network’s highest quarterly rank in women 25-54 among all ad-supported cable networks and #4 for African-American women ages 25 to 54.

OWN was the number-one cable network on Tuesday and Wednesday nights for African-American women in quarter 1 of 2014.
