Maybe there is such a thing as bad press? Well either way the much hype (very unnecessary hype) brought Lindsy’s portrait as Elizabeth Taylor to horrible reviews. To be honest it sounded like an easy guess that she could not come close and there were far better actresses that should have had this role.
Despite being talked about around the world – Lindsay Lohan’s much ballyhooed Lifetime film Liz & Dick drew only 3.5 million viewers.
That isn’t even close to what Steel Magnolias pulled in back in October.
The portrayal of the infamous love affair between Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton was the fourth most watched original movie premiere – which SOUNDS impressive until one remembers the lack of made-for-tv movies these days.
The numbers averaged 1.3 million viewers in the 18-49 demographic and 1.3 million adults 25-54.
