Posted by monique On July - 31 - 2014 0 Comment

Who watched “Sharknado 2: The Second One”? If you did, you weren’t alone. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Syfy sequel to the original so-bad-it’s-good film “Sharknado,” had a network record with 3.9 million viewers for its premiere, making it the most-watched movie in network history.

Making network history isn’t the only thing “Sharknado 2″ accomplished. The film also became a Twitter magnet, getting 1 billion Twitter impressions according to SyFy’s metrics. If you were on Twitter, no doubt you were inundated with tons of tweets about the insanity that is sharks in tornadoes in big, populated cities. “Sharknado 2″ was one of the trending topics on Twitter and will go down in social media history.

“Sharknado 2″ owes its stellar opening to the original’s now-legendary status for being an awesomely bad movie, even by SyFy standards. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 1.6 million adults in the 18-49 demographic alone is more than the entire audience for the first film, which raked in 1.4 million viewers.
