Guess exposing her playful and candid side wasn't enough…

E!'s two-hour Britney Spears documentary special, I Am Britney Jean, didn't fare so well in the ratings department.

Okay…that's an extremely sad understatement!

After a ton of publicity and teasers, the insiders look behind Brit-Brit's personal life and Vegas stage show only managed 706,000 viewers on Sunday's broadcast premiere!

We expected so much more from our princess of pop—but we did LOVE the BTS footage of her Planet Hollywood residency!

It was the perfect way to pump up fans for tomorrow's show debut!

    People do not watch TV at time of broadcasting anymore since they can catch it at their own time on the internet. This is why ratings are not the same as they used to be and not a great measurement of success, just like music downloads. It doesn't mean people don't care for it. I think "Britney Jean" is a great album. Much easier to listen to than Beyonce's music(worst album of the year despite # of sales gimmic).

    Your such a loser.
    The ratings were good for E news.
    On par with Chelsea Lately.

    E!'s usual average viewership total is 460,000 viewers. This is almost twice that. You should report the full story before saying something is "a flop." It's misleading. (And, yes, the (idiot) Kardashians have a huge hit with 2 million viewers, but they've been on for years and no one-time special would ever match that.)

    Next for Britney is my video theme that will be a blockbuster. Hope someday to present it to her. More info here:

    give up the ghost - she's a talentless has-been and you're clearly getting paid to promote her. and it's failing. you have no power here.

    Re: Blobby – And even if that insult were true, it's still a far greater achievement out of life than you'll ever accomplish.
