Lifetime's Anna Nicole Smith biopic Anna Nicole
averaged 3.3 million viewers in its premiere airing on Saturday.
The 3.3 million viewers topped last month's Jodi Arias:
Dirty Little Secret (3.1 million) for the net's most-watched original movie
this year. It fell shy of last November's Liz & Dick, which
drew 3.5 million viewers.
In key demos, Anna Nicole had Lifetime's
best numbers since last October's Steel Magnolias with 1.6 million
adults 25-54; 1.4 million adults 18-49; 1.2 million women 25-54; and 1.1
million women 18-49.
