Just 11 percent said they were “very interested” in the programme, with 20 percent indicating they were “somewhat interested”.

Just two percent responded “don’t know”.
The pollsters found interest was higher among women (44 percent) than men (18 percent), with one in six (17 percent) of women saying they were “very interested” in the upcoming show.

In the first trailer, released earlier this week, Oprah stated: “I just want to make it clear to everybody – there is no subject that is off-limits.”
Yesterday the broadcaster’s shared a video of Meghan chatting to Oprah on her own, where she claims the Royal Family played a role in “perpetuating falsehoods” about her and her husband.
In the clip, Oprah asked: “How do you feel about the Palace hearing you speak your truth today?”
The Duchess of Sussex replied, claiming: “I don’t know how they could expect that after all of this time we would still just be silent if there is an active role that The Firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us.

“And if that comes with the risk of losing things, I mean… there’s a lot that’s been lost already.”
The sit down interview is set to last for two hours and Meghan and Prince Harry are believed to discuss their time in the Royal Family.
The chat will cover a wide variety of topics, and will start with Oprah chatting candidly with Meghan about her marriage, motherhood and how she handled life under public pressure, according to a CBS press release.
In another teaser clip released by CBS, Harry is thought to open up about his late mother and appeared to suggest he and his wife have endured similar experiences.
He told Oprah: “I’m just really relieved and happy to be sitting here, talking to you, with my wife by my side, because I can’t begin to imagine what it must have been like for her, going through this process by herself, all those years ago.
“Because it has been unbelievably tough for the two of us, but at least we had each other.”
Harry is thought to be referring to Princess Diana’s exit from the Royal Family in 1996, when she officially divorced from Prince Charles and lost her Her Royal Highness style.
He added: “My biggest fear was history repeating itself.”
