Oprah Winfrey knew landing an interview with Rihanna would score huge ratings.

And her hunch proved to be true. Oprah did a one-hour interview with the Barbados beauty on Oprah’s Next Chapter that aired on Sunday. The show pulled in 2.5 million viewers. It was the second-highest rating for the network behind the episode with the Whitney Houston family after the singer’s death, which had 3.5 million viewers.

Oprah’s interview with Rihanna ranked No. 1 in key women demographics for its time slot and No. 2 in all of prime time. The interview topped all key African-American demographics in its time slot in both broadcast and ad-supported cable, earning a 2.4 rating among women 25-54 and a 2.5 rating with women 18-49.
