Lady Gaga's Muppets Thanksgiving Special Flops
Lady Gaga needed a little help securing her second flop in less than a week.
First, the mercurial singer's ARTPOP album nose-dived on the music charts. Now, the ratings for the Gaga/Muppets mashup Thanksgiving night came in lower than a musty animated special.
ABC’s 90-minute Lady Gaga & The Muppets Holiday Spectacular had only 3.6 million viewers and a 0.9 rating among adults 18-49 at 9:30 p.m. That’s considerable less than ABC’s 8 p.m. annual repeat of a 40-year-old holiday special, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (5.3 million, 1.6 in demo).
The ratings news may be ominous for Lady Gaga's co-stars, since a new Muppets feature is set to bow in Spring 2014.
