Did you watch Liz & Dick? I didn’t. I know, I know, but I don’t have cable, and it was so cold on Sunday, so I just went to bed. I have seen clips, but I haven’t seen the whole thing yet, so I can’t really pass judgement on it. I can only pass on the facts.
The ratings weren’t too hot on this one. Sorry. Everyone involved with the making of this movie predicted that every single person with access to a television would watch Liz & Dick to see Lindsay‘s big comeback, but yeah, that just wasn’t the case. They got 3.5 million viewers, which certainly isn’t bad, it just isn’t what they expected.
Let’s put this into perspective: Lindsay’s movie was the fourth most-watched Lifetime movie of 2012. It got 3.5 million viewers. Lifetime’s remake of Steel Magnolias had 6.5 million viewers, a movie called Drew Peterson: Untouchable got 5.8 million, and another movie called Abducted: The Carlina White Story got 4.09 million. I can understand why Steel Magnolias did so much better – Queen Latifah, Phylicia Rashad, and Jill Scott, are you serious? – but I don’t get the other two. Are other people really that uninterested in Lindsay Lohan?
