In the world of TV ratings, it doesn’t matter if you love or hate it – as long as you watch. And people WATCHED Lindsay Lohan on Lifetime Sunday night – to the tune of 3.5 million viewers… making it televisions fourth most watched original ad supported cable movie premiere of 2012. The film ranksbehind Lifetime’s Steel Magnolias, Drew Peterson: Untouchable and Abducted: The Carlina White Story.

According to Nielsen Research, the film, which was panned by critics, bloggers, and plenty of twitter users, received a 2.8 Household rating. The pic stars Lindsay Lohan as Liz Taylor and Grant Bowler as Richard Burton. Lifetime will air an encore at 8pm ET tonight.

Lifetime has slowly been staging its comeback. It had lost it’s identity after trying to sway from it’s original reputation as being a network of campy movies – trying to compete with the plethora of reality shows out there. They’ve had some success (Dance Moms) but were getting lost in the genre.  What they’re now realizing is: PEOPLE LIKE CAMPY MOVIES. and they’re returning to their roots.
