Pedal pusher: Oprah Winfrey’s interview with controversial cyclist Lance Armstrong, who nibbled around the edges of a full confession that he used performance-enhancing drugs to win cycling titles and medals, drew a total of 4.3 million viewers Thursday night on Oprah’s OWN cable network.

Competitors on ESPN, Fox, CNN and others immediately criticized OWN for using a ratings-enhancing drug user to win its time slot.
