Lindsay Lohan's Lifetime movie, "Liz & Dick," took Twitter by storm last night, but that didn't mean that it translated into good ratings for the network.

TMZ reports that the film drew in 3.5 million viewers, which isn't so bad, but it doesn't compare to the 6.5 million viewers that "Steel Magnolias" pulled in when the network aired it earlier this year.

The gossip site notes that the numbers behind "Liz & Dick" make it the fourth most-watched movie on Lifetime this year.
