Did you watch Beyoncé and Jay Z’s On The Run HBO special?
If you didn’t, you’re not alone. Despite the tour being a mega success and there being plenty of hype surrounding the televised event, the special failed to pull in significant numbers.
In fact, less than one million people tuned in on Saturday night — only 880,000 to be exact.
To put it into perspective, even old reruns of The Big Bang Theory beat out the special with 2,790,000 viewers on a Saturday night.
Granted, we’re looking at network TV vs. a premium cable channel… but HBO has over 24 million US subscribers.
Could it be that people are just burnt out on Beyoncé and Jay Z? If so, we wonder what this means for their rumored joint album?
