Well, this has been sufficiently awkward.

After months of waiting and seeing glimpses of a tearful Lindsay Lohan, OWN finally aired Oprah Winfrey's highly anticipated sit-down interview with the troubled starlet on Sunday night. However, based on the event's lackluster ratings, it looks like audiences decided to send LiLo a very clear message: "You can't sit with us!"

Lohan's post rehab tell-all failed to hit the 1 million mark. The one-hour special broadcast of Oprah's Next Chapter averaged 892,000 viewers in the 9 p.m. premiere telecast while the 10 p.m. encore averaged 504,000 viewers. Hmmm, we wonder how many viewers Glenn Coco would have snagged?

Wearing a bright orange dress, Lohan seemed genuine, answering all of the hard-hitting questions about her addiction and family troubles, and even offered some eyebrow-raising explanations for her actions. Unfortunately, the actress's confessions only drew in a 0.66 rating, which is barely a bump from OWN's regular Sunday night programming at 0.62.

As you may recall, Oprah had a similar tell-all interview with Lance Armstrong this past January, but unlike LiLo, the former cyclist brought OWN record-breaking numbers. In the first night of his two-part interview, Armstrong's Tour de France confessions drew in a whopping 4.3 million viewers, making it the highest rated weekday telecast in the network's history.
