America tuned in for Liz & Dick -- though not like it did for Steel Magnolias last month.
The Lifetime original movie, starring Lindsay Lohan and Grant Bowler as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, pulled in 3.5 million viewers during its inaugural airing on Sunday night. That's three million shy of Magnolias, which recently became the network's third-most-watched broadcast in history with 6.5 million.
Liz & Dick's premiere capped off months of buzz around Lohan ending her career hiatus with a portrayal of the iconic actress -- and, most recently, the largely negative reviews that kept the TV movie in headlines.
