The Lifetime movie "Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret" drew fairly killer ratings for the network on Sunday, pulling in 3.1 million total viewers — a 55 percent jump over Lifetime's average for original movies so far this year, though down from last year's much hyped "Liz & Dick" biopic, which starred Lindsay Lohan as screen legend Elizabeth Taylor and drew 3.5 million total viewers with its premiere.
In the 18-49 demographic most important to viewers, "Dirty Little Secret" drew 1.2 million viewers.
The biopic, which stars "Lost" alum Tania Raymonde as Arias, who earlier this year was convicted of murdering her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander, ranks as the second-best-rated original cable movie so far this year in the 18-49 demo, behind only Lifetime's "Prosecuting Casey Anthony" earlier this year. In total viewers, "Dirty Little Secret" ranks third in original cable movies so far this year.
No matter how you slice it, that's not too shabby.
