It appears the sharks weren’t the only ones who came back for seconds.
Syfy’s Sharknado 2: The Second One on Wednesday night sucked 3.9 million total viewers into its vortex — making it the cabler’s most watched original movie ever — with 1.6 mil landing in the extra-tasty 18-49 demo, up 180 percent versus the original telepic.
TVLine readers gave the over-the-top follow-up an average grade of “B+.”
The original Sharknado drew 1.4 million total viewers with its initial airing, with 570K landing in the demo. (Its first two encores then added 1.9 milliion and a 2.1 million total viewers, respectively.)
Syfy ordered a third Sharknado film back in April, three months ahead of The Second One’s premiere.
