The ratings are in -- and Lindsay Lohan's "Liz & Dick" did NOT get the viewers it needed to become Lifetime's most watched TV movie of 2012 ... not even close.

According to Lifetime, L&D drew 3.5 million viewers during its premiere last night -- solid, but not the earth-shattering numbers Lifetime was gunning for with all the buzz around the film.

Lifetime's "Steel Magnolias" -- the most-watched TV movie this year -- attracted 6.5 million.

The numbers make "Liz & Dick" the fourth most-watched Lifetime movie this year behind "Drew Peterson: Untouchable" (with 5.8 million viewers) and "Abducted: The Carlina White Story" (with 4.09 million viewers).

Still, Lifetime says L&D was up 40% versus other Lifetime original movies in 2012.

So, we gotta ask ...

We watched at the start and then, after a long, long laugh...we came back for the last few minutes. We would have been happier watching an hour of commercials...calling this movie a bomb is an awful insult to bombs.

Well it looks like we will no longer have to put up with "the star of Herbie Fully Loaded", or even "The troubled starlet of Mean Girls".
Nope . . . from now on all stories that have to do with Lohan will use this cinematic piece of effluent as her career point of reference.

At least until the Clamyons comes out (if it ever actually does).

I'll admit I'm confused. Are you serious or joking? I honestly don't know. I'm a guy in RI.

Haters,

When Lindsay gets much more than a guiet and polite applause on late night TV, how angry does that make you? I mean when you become fully aware of the fact that you're quite irrelevant because there's so much admiration and rooting support, how angry does that make you? On a scale of one to ten?

What does Grant Bowler have?

Character?

From the NTDN:

"...playing Burton, he says, has been a highlight.

“My favorite shooting day in the whole picture was the scene where I got to do his Hamlet,” Bowler says. “That’s one I’ll treasure forever.”


A Career?

He has the lead in a fantastic new futuristic show on SyFy, which is the first to combine gaming on a TV series. It has multiple alien races with their own languages. Coming April 2013.


What does Lindsay have?

Did anyone stop to think that the reason "Liz & Dick" rated only #4 in viewership is BECAUSE IT PREMIERED ON SUNDAY, THANKSGIVING WEEKEND, WHILE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WERE BUSY TRAVELING HOME! Literally millions of people were not available to watch this movie... on a normal weekend, the ratings WOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH HIGHER. Therefore, Lindsay's movie likely scored highest. Good comeback.
