Liz & Dick Comes Up a Little Limp

Much-publicized Lifetime TV movie gets 3.5 million total viewers

Here's proof that the gulf between social media buzz and viewer interest can be considerable: Was there ever a more-tweeted made-for-TV movie than Lifetime's Liz & Dick? It was trending on Twitter all night, and yet when the dust settled, the women's network laid claim to 3.5 million viewers—not a bad number by any stretch, but not exactly a record setter and kind of a letdown by event television standards, even within the A+E Networks group.
