Looks like Justin Bieber’s first ever network special didn’t do quite as well as expected last night.
Part one of the two-night concert-doc event drew in 3.3 million viewers overall, giving it a 0.9/3 rating. While over 3 million viewers isn’t anything to be upset about, we KNOW Justin has more Beliebers than that!
Maybe they all gathered together for viewing parties…???
In terms of other concert specials, it seems Adele’s Live In London on June 3 had a rating that was 47% higher than Bieber’s All Around The World.
However, Adele DID have the help of her special premering on a Sunday, while Justin’s aired Wednesday and will continue Thursday.
But don't worry, Beliebers — there’s always a second shot for part two, which airs TONIGHT on NBC at 8pm!
Let’s make sure we get the Biebs the ratings he deserves for ALL his hard work these past few months!
A Bieber source tells us that most of his Beliebers watched the special online, as it was trending WORLDWIDE last night for two hours and took over 9 out of the 10 trending topics!
Even later in the night, 7 out of 10 trending topics had to do with Justin's special, as they were seen trending for SIX hours!
Seems as though this may go to show how sometimes ratings aren't entirely accurate anymore, especially if internet views are left out of the equation…which is pretty ridiculous in the digital age!
