I was anticipating these numbers when I asked you folks what you thought of the movie (Steel Magnolias), in an entry posted earlier today. And despite what seems to be a general disappointment in the movie (based on comments on this site, as well as on Facebook and Twitter), many did tune in to watch - 6.5 million total average, and the 3th most-watched Lifetime telecast ever!

Is it just me, or have Morris Chestnut's job prospects suddenly gotten brighter? I'd say we've written about him more in the last 4 months than we had in the last 2 years.
