LOS ANGELES — Fearsome sharks rained down once more in the latest "Sharknado" TV movie, but they didn't create the ratings deluge of last year's installment.
"Sharknado 3" was Wednesday's No. 1 cable program and had double the audience of the original 2013 movie's 1.4 million viewers.
The third movie topped Nielsen's Twitter TV ratings with 360,000 event-related tweets.
The original "Sharknado," also featuring Ziering and Reid, was a surprise hit with its blend of offbeat casting and over-the-top storytelling and special effects.
And cue the sharks again: Syfy said a fourth movie is planned.
