"Sharknado 2: The Second One"

Ratings for Syfy’s “Sharknado 2: The Second One” haven’t come in, but the movie is already a hit in one sphere. It quickly shot to number one on Twitter trending, with everyone getting in on the action of the sequel to the unlikely smash hit from last summer.

In fact, at one point in the night, eight of the top ten Twitter hashtags were for the Ian Ziering and Tara Reid movie, which featured countless celebrity cameos.

The film is also trending on Facebook, as the social media strength it showed during last year’s “Sharknado” premiere doesn’t appear to have abated a single bit. In an era of time-shifting, it’s certainly remarkable that an openly ridiculous film — that’s only gotten even more ridiculous, if the sequel trailers are to be believed — has bucked the trend and become must-see-right-now TV.
