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 ...

I thought the acting was good. It was the way it was written that made it look bad. To fast pace. You can't do Liz Taylor's life or even that portion of it that way. It should have been a 2 part 4 hour movie to do it justice..

"Her dad, Michael Lohan, thought his daughter's performance proved once again that she is right up there with Meryl Streep."


We all laugh about it, but everyone in this family is really mentally ill. We shouldn't laugh. *coughhahahahahahcoughcough*

It didn't just suck, it sucked SO hard, I felt a vacuum pulling me towards my television. It was hands-down the worst thing I've ever seen. Since when did Elizabeth have a voice like she chained smoked 6 packs of unfiltered cigs a day and gargles with glass shards?
It was worse than a train wreck. Let's just be glad Elizabeth was not alive to see this disrespect.

Way to go Lindsay you had the 4th best movie of the year of liftime only if they had made more than 4 movies this year it would have been an accomplishment.

Bottom line: Lohan looks nothing like Taylor. Liz Taylor was beautiful. Lindsey Lohan average at best. Liz Taylor was an actress. Lohan is a JOKE. I saw the movie, & all I can say is: Ms. Taylor must be turning over in her grave, at the mere mention that this junkie loser portrayed her. and btw, what was up with her accent? The worst movie EVER....

It's interesting that she doesn't think she needs acting classes. Except for fainting. She's an excellent "eyes partially rolling back drop straight down" syncopist.

Twice as many preferred "Steel Magnolias" over Linds wearing a dozen scarecrow wigs, smoking, rasping, audibly gasping.... "Steel Magnolias" is what, at least 20 years and must've been shown on LaughTime at least one million times. Has anyone checked the ratings for Mr. Belvedere reruns? I bet those have been run at least a million times, too.
