Janet Jackson’s four-part documentary brought in record ratings for LIFETIME. And it seems everyone on social media has something to say about it, particularly sounding off about Jermaine Dupri admitting to cheating on the singer. Because, audacity. Get it all inside…
In celebration of the 40th anniversary of her debut album, Janet Jackson gave fans a behind-the-scenes look at her life as she transformed from being the baby sister of The Jackson 5 to a global icon. The two-day event brought in record numbers for LIFETIME and everyone seemingly had something to say after watching it. The Internet was in a frenzy with dialogue about the series.

According to reports, Janet’s doc was watched by so many people that it became the network’s most-watched non-fiction show since “Surviving R. Kelly” premiered in 2019.
Not only that, viewership is still growing.
Nielson Company reported Part 1 - which aired on Friday - was watched by 2.8 million people on live TV and another 1.2 million in the next few days via online or on demand. 4.3 million people tuned in for Part 2 and Part 3 raked in 3.7 million. The final part totaled 3.8 million. The numbers are expected to increase as viewing continues to grow.
We’re sure all of the online chatter has something to do with viewership still rising because it feels like everyone is talking about it on our timelines. Folks didn’t waste any time to DRAG award winning producer Jermaine Dupri after he admitted to CHEATING on THE Janet Jackson. They called it quits in 2009 after seven years together.
Black Twitter also had plenty to say about Janet forgiving Justin Timberlake following the Super Bowl nipplegate fiasco (they are still MADT).
