One would never expect the Queen of Daytime television to solicit Nielsen viewers to watch her struggling OWN network. But tough times call for tough measures, as Oprah shot the request to her Twitter fans. Nielsen dropped the hammer dumb hard and forced her to delete the message. O apologized in shame: “I removed the tweet at the request of Nielsen. I intended no harm and apologize for the reference.”
