Sharknado 2 Sets Record With Nearly 4 Million Viewers

We have no one to blame but ourselves.

Sharknado 2: The Second One, the follow-up to last summer’s surprisingly popular-for-all-the-wrong-reasons Sharknado, set a record as the network’s most watched original movie ever, the network announced Thursday.

Apparently, a whopping 3.9 million viewers tuned in to watch Tara Reid attach a buzzsaw to the stump where her hand used to be, and that makesSharknado 2 the most popular TV movie ever. The sequel was up 190 percent from the original in the adults 18-49 demographic.

In addition, Syfy estimates that the movie is responsible for roughly 1 billion (yes, with a “b”) Twitter impressions. That’s way, way more than say, Game of Thrones‘ Red Wedding episode or even the Breaking Bad finale.

Once again, we have no one to blame but ourselves.

Did you watch Sharknado 2?
