Oprah Winfrey's sit-down interview with Lance Armstrong doesn't air until Thursday, but the host spoke to CBS This Morning on Tuesday about how the cyclist confessed to doping during Monday's taping.
Returning Winter Shows: Where we left off
"I would say he did not come clean in the manner I expected. It was surprising to me," Winfrey said Tuesday. "I would say that for myself, my team, all of us in the room, we were mesmerized and riveted by some of his answers."
And while Winfrey didn't get a chance to ask all of the 112 questions she had prepared, "I think the most important questions and the answers that people around the world have been waiting to hear were answered," she said.
Winter TV's must-see new shows
This will be Armstrong's first interview since he was stripped of his titles, including seven Tour de France wins, amidst doping allegations. In October, Armstrong announced he would no longer fight the charges, resulting in a lifetime ban from cycling professionally. He also has since resigned from his charity foundation Livestrong.
The two-and-half-hour interview will air as part of Oprah's Next Chapter on Thursday at 9/8c and Friday at 9/8c on OWN. It will also be simultaneously streamed both nights on Oprah.com.
