OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network has expanded its forthcoming special Oprah and Lance Armstrong: The Worldwide Exclusive to two nights, airing across January 17 and 18.

The special, which was previously announced as an episode within Oprah’s Next Chapter series, has received a new name and a two-night run, with 90 minutes airing on January 17 and the following episode airing at 9 p.m. the next evening, as worldwide attention around the interview has increased.

Both Harpo Studios-produced episodes will stream live on Oprah.com.

The interview was taped in Austin, Texas on January 14, and will see Armstrong addressing the doping scandal that has tarnished his cycling career and seen him stripped of his seven Tour de France titles.
