The ratings are in, and Toni Braxton's Lifetime biopic Unbreak My Heart was a success! Get the deets, plus our observations, inside...
Whether or not it was the huge blizzard Jonas causing 90 million Americans to stay indoors on the night of the premiere that lead to these ratings on not, the Toni Braxton biopic was a hit!
Social media was on fire as newcomer Lex Scott Davis channeled Toni Braxton (and the Braxton sisters got their own eyebrow raising portrayals). It all lead to 3.6 million Total Viewers, according to Nielsen Fast Cable Ratings. Get it!
The movie was the most tweeted about program on television Saturday, with an 18% share of all Twitter TV activity. And you already know what was taking up much of that activity: Those damn MEMES.
We're still left wondering why Lex's speaking voice didn't match Toni's singing voice. Once we got past that, and the somewhat low-energy performance as Toni, we were here for ALL the rest of it. Including how she nailed Toni's look.
From the shade within the first 60 seconds about "Tamar always being flat," to Debbie Morgan coming for Angela Bassett's crown for the "Best Kick Your Cheating Ass Out" scene to that epic shade thrown at Towanda through the way they had Skye P. Marshall playing her....we loved every second. The casting was on point too -- Papa Braxton, Babyface, Tamar Braxton....nailed it!
Overall, Lifetime didn't let us down. Cheers to that!
