Beyonc├â┬⌐‘s HBO special Lemonade may not have brought in the ratings that the network expected — despite all of the “Becky with the good hair” drama that EXPLODED on the internet shortly after it aired. Hmm, very inneresting!
As you may know, on Saturday, the Hold Up singer dropped her visual album on the cable network after cryptically teasing the event for some time. Unfortunately, it appears that the special didn’t even reach one million viewers, whereas Game Of Thrones drew in about eight million the next evening. Oof!
Apparently, Lemonade ended up having a surprisingly modest 0.41 rating for 18-49 year old demographic. Although, we feel like we should note that Queen Bey’s premiere went up against the NBA playoffs which aired on both ESPN and TNT. Merp!
Surprisingly, both an airing of Jurassic World and the channel’s coverage of the Gennady Golovkin-Dominic Wade title fight did better than Jay Z‘s wife program. Whoa!
Nonetheless, the 787,000 people who did tune in to watch got one hell of truth bomb about Bey’s marriage. Oh snap!
What do YOU think? Are you shocked by Lemonade‘s numbers?
