to be a ratings smash, FX's latest original movie mustered a weak Nielsen Media Research rating Sunday.
Big Shot: Confessions of a Campus Bookie earned a 1.2 rating for its debut March 30, notching a
2.2 rating among men 18 through 34.
FX's last original movie, Sins of the Father,
scored a 2.9.
Confessions is FX's fifth original movie.
Future movie projects include a biopic on Robert F. Kennedy and a look
