Last night, VH1 debuted the much anticipated bio pic “Crazy Sexy Cool,” the TLC story, and like the group, it was a huge hit. Early reports show that “Crazy Sexy Cool” is currently the highest rated cable movie of 2013. In fact, the movie is VH1’s highest rated original movie ever, with a total of 4.5 million viewers tuning in to watch at 9 pm Monday.
The VH1 press release also states that the movie generated very close to 2 million Tweets, making it the most social networking TV event of the day. And as of 10 AM this morning, TLC’s new soundtrack for the film, 20 from Epic Records, jumped from #43 to #5 on the iTunes overall chart, and jumped to #1 on the iTunes R&B chart.
The movie is so detailed that they even went into the famous “hostage” incident where TLC and some friends stormed the office of then Arista Records president, Clive Davis. Upset that they had not been appropriately compensated for the sales of their sophomore album, “Crazy Sexy Cool,” they stormed the label with a group of female convicts and confiscated all the TLC paraphernalia in sight. The scene is one of the most shocking moments in the film.
Incase you missed the original airing of “Crazy Sexy Cool,” have no fear because VH1 will rebroadcast the movie on Sunday, October 27, 8pm ET/PT, which will be immediately followed by encores of Behind the Music: TLC Remastered at 10:30pm, and Rock Docs: Last Days of Left Eye at 11:30pm.
