‘Shark­nado 3’ lures 2.8 mil­lion view­ers

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT - THE AS­SO­CI­ATED PRESS

Fear­some sharks rained down once more in the latest “Shark­nado” TV movie, but they didn’t cre­ate the rat­ings del­uge of last year’s in­stall­ment.

An es­ti­mated 2.8 mil­lion view­ers tuned in for Syfy’s campy “Shark­nado 3: Oh Hell No!” star­ring Ian Zier­ing and Tara Reid. In com­par­i­son, 3.9 mil­lion view­ers watched 2014’s “Shark­nado 2.”

“Shark­nado 3” was Wed­nes­day’s No. 1 ca­ble pro­gram and had dou­ble the au­di­ence of the orig­i­nal 2013 movie’s 1.4 mil­lion view­ers.

The third movie topped Nielsen’s Twit­ter TV rat­ings with 360,000 event-re­lated tweets.

The orig­i­nal “Shark­nado,” also fea­tur­ing Zier­ing and Reid, was a sur­prise hit with its blend of off­beat cast­ing and over-the-top sto­ry­telling and spe­cial ef­fects.

And cue the sharks again: Syfy said a fourth movie is planned.
