"Sharknado" Will Return Next Thursday on Syfy
(NEW YORK) -- For TV fans who might have read about Syfy’s original movie Sharknado after it basically took over Twitter Thursday night, but didn’t get a chance to see the film -- a rep from the network has confirmed to ABC News that it will rerun the movie next Thursday at 7 p.m. ET.
According to Syfy, Sharknado was the network’s "most social" telecast ever. More than 111,000 people tweeted 318,232 times during the broadcast last night, said SGI, the company owned by Nielsen ratings. Tweets per minute during the broadcast reached 5,010, according to Topsy Pro.
Celebrities even got into the mix with the likes of Patton Oswalt, Seth Myers, Erin Andrews and even Mia Farrow tweeting about this instant phenomenon.
Sharknado features Beverly Hills 90210 star Ian Ziering and American Pie darling Tara Reid, who have to move into action after sharks start falling from the skies, attacking unassuming people.
IMDB has the budget for the campy film listed at $1 million.
