Lisa Breckenridge Previews The Lance Armstrong Interview

Posted: Updated:

We've gotten our first look at the Oprah and Lance Armstrong sit-down. Oprah has confirmed that Lance Armstrong admitted to using drugs.

The promo for her interview was just released by OWN, and while you don't actually hear from the disgraced cyclist and it shows him with Oprah.

Oprah says that she went into the two-and-a-half hour interview armed with one-hundred-12 questions. She was able to ask most of them and that she was satisfied with his answers, although he did not come clean in the way she had expected.

When asked if Armstrong was contrite in the interview she said she choose not to characterize whether or not he was, she wants to leave that up to the viewer...but that he was thoughtful and prepared in his answers....that it was emotional and intense.

And now instead of just one night, this will be a two night special on the OWN Network (so that's Thursday and Friday night.)

Armstrong has already been stripped of his seven Tour De France titles, lost most of his endorsement deals, and is banned from cycling.

The US anti-doping agency dropped a bomb last year when it released a thousand page report accusing him of being behind a long running doping scheme.

A chief executive from the US Anti-Doping Agency says Armstrong was the mastermind behind "the most sophisticated, professionalized, and successful doping program the sport has ever seen".

One of Armstrong's teammates was stripped of his Tour De France title in '06 for doping.

Floyd Landis accused Armstrong of using performance-enhancing drugs, *that triggered Armstrong and his attorneys to fire back at him and portray him as a fraud.

Now he's filed a federal whistle blower lawsuit against Armstrong, and the justice department may also join the lawsuit.

Other lawsuits will most likely follow.
