Anna Nicole Biopic Starring Bold and Beautiful Alum Proves Ratings Hit

Anna Nicole drew a crowd once again, this time for Lifetime. The TV-movie, starring The Bold and the Beautiful alum Agnes Bruckner (ex-Bridget Forrester), scored 3.3 million viewers, according to the Nielsens.

Anna Nicole Smith proves again to be larger than life. Saturday’s world premiere of the Lifetime Original Movie Anna Nicole (#AnnaNicole), telling the rags-to-riches story of the iconic supermodel who captured the world’s attention with her beauty and unconventional lifestyle, averaged 3.3 million Total Viewers, a 57% jump vs. the network’s 2013 year-to-date original movie average and its most watched original movie since November.  The film also performed well across all key demographics, becoming this year’s number one original cable movie premiere among Adults 25-54 (1.6 million), Adults 18-49 (1.4 million), Women 25-54 (1.2 million) and Women 18-49 (1.1 million) – representing a Lifetime best in the four demos since Steel Magnolias last October.  Anna Nicole secured a 2.6 Household rating, according to Nielsen Research.

The blonde bombshell was also a hit on social media, as the evening's most cyber-talked about program.

    It was a horrible show but it was just “good” bad. I found it interesting that right after the marriage she was given a job out of the country (out of US investigation) and that her son died in Bermuda (once again out of US investigation)and she herself died on Seminole Indian land (out of US investigation).

    It just seems to me the Marshall’s paid dearly to have her done in.

    wow, one percent of the population watch and the show is a hit. I am no mathematician, but seriously if a show garnered 1% then I cannot see it as something to call home about. Based on those numbers every TV show should be fine from now on. Because that’s usually the amount of viewers who usually tune in to watch anyway. My goodness the 3.3 million is less than the population of Rhode Island. But then again, I should not say anything because I did not watch nor was I interested to watch.
