Oprah Winfrey's new giveaway show is taking a big chunk of the TV audience for herself. "Oprah's Big Give" was seen by 15.7 million people. That represents the largest audience in prime time last week for any program not named "American Idol." It wasn't the only Oprah-related show that did well in the Nielsen ratings last week. Monday's airing of "A Raisin in the Sun" also finished in the top 10. It had 12.7 million viewers.

The show starred Diddy, Phylicia Rashad, Audra McDonald and Sanaa Lathan in the remake of the Lorraine Hansberry play which made its Broadway debut back in 1959.
