'Sharknado': Tara Reid flying sharks film attracts 1.4m on Syfy

By
Sharknado scored decent ratings for cable network Syfy on Thursday night (July 11).

Tara Reid's made-for-TV disaster movie attracted 1.4 million viewers. While the figure is rather low in comparison to other networks, it is above the average score for Syfy.



The Asylum-produced film was one of the most-talked about programmes on social media this week after its trailer was unveiled online.

Sharknado follows a group of townsfolk after a tornado lifts sharks out of the ocean and drops them in Los Angeles.

The movie generated over 386,000 social interactions on Thursday, peaking at around 5,000 tweets per minute.

It beat similar Syfy movies in recent months, including Independence Day-saster in June (1.26m), Battledogs in April (1.52m) and Chupacabra vs the Alamo in March (1.49m).

Cassie Scerbo, Ian Ziering and John Heard are also among the cast of the cult movie.
