VH1’s original movie CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story drew 4.5 million viewers in its Oct. 21 premiere, the network announced Tuesday.
The film, which chronicles the lives of iconic R&B music trio TLC, posted the highest audience and rating for the network in more than five years. CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story is also the most watched original movie ever for VH1 and the most viewed, adult-targeted movie thus far in 2013 (Disney Channel’s kid-targeted Teen Beach Movie drew 8.3 million viewers in its July 19 debut.)
On the social media front, the film was the most active show on Twitter with over 1.92 million tweets, according to SocialGuide. That was four times greater than second place finisher, ESPN’s Monday Night Football.
