TLC’s ‘CrazySexyCool’ biopic makes ratings history for VH1

TLC still has what it takes to captivate a huge audience. Monday night 4.5 million viewers tuned in to watch CrazySexyCool: The TLC story, making it VH1’s highest-rated original movie ever and cable’s highest-rated original movie of 2013.

The film also dominated social media. According to VH1, CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story was the most tweeted show on all of TV Monday night with 1.92 million tweets generated — four times greater than that of the next closest program, Monday Night Football.

Monday night, fans flocked to iTunes to download TLC’s new soundtrack for the film, 20, which jumped from #43 to #5 on the iTunes overall chart, and to #1 on the iTunes R&B chart.

CrazySexyCool: The TLC story stars KeKe Palmer as Chilli, Drew Sidora as T-Boz, and Lil Mama as Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, and chronicles the trio’s rise to fame, financial struggles, and their drama-filled love lives.

The biopic will get its first TV encore Sunday, October 27th at 8/7c and will be immediately followed by encores of Behind the Music: TLC Remastered at 10:30/9:30c and Rock Docs: Last Days of Left Eye at 11:30/10:30c
