Miley Cyrus' behind-the-scenes TV tour special failed to find an audience when it aired in America on Sunday night (06Jul14), scoring just two million viewers.
The two-hour documentary, titled Miley Cyrus: Bangerz Tour, gave fans an all-access pass to her global trek and featured exclusive backstage footage with the Wrecking Ball hitmaker, her siblings and co-stars on the road, as well as performances of tracks such as We Can't Stop and Party in the U.S.A. from her recent gigs in Barcelona, Spain and Lisbon, Portugal.
Cyrus was also shown dedicating her track Adore You to her beloved dog Floyd, who passed away in April (14).
Ratings were expected to be lower than normal due to the U.S. Independence Day holiday weekend (begs04Jul14), but Cyrus' TV special was among the lowest-rated and least-watched programmes of the night, according to early figures released by bosses at data firm Nielsen.
It proved to be less popular than new talent show Rising Star, which drew 4.32 million viewers in the same time slot, while repeats of Family Guy and American Dad both attracted more than 2.4 million viewers each.

A source tells Britain's Mirror newspaper, "They really hit it off when they met and really like each other, so Rita invited him over (to Europe) to join her. They want to see where things might take them - they're just having a lot of fun."

Scarlett Johansson has triumphed in her defamation trial against an author who penned a book featuring a character based on the actress. The Captain America star accused French writer Gregoire Delacourt of making "fraudulent use of her name, fame and image" in his book La premiere chose qu'on regarde (The First Thing We Look At), which features a character described as Johansson's "exact double" who is treated as a sex object.
The actress sued for $69,302 (£40,765), accusing the novelist of using her likeness to promote the story.
In a ruling on Wednesday (02Jul14) at a court in Paris, France, Johansson won the case but was awarded just $3,397 (£1,998).
Movie icon Steve Mcqueen's son is to return to the site of his father's Le Mans movie this weekend (06Jul14) for the classic car race, 44 years after his first trip to the track. Chad McQueen was just a boy when he joined his dad on location and now he's backing a new documentary about the making of the 1970s film, which resumes filming in France on Friday (04Jul14).
McQueen: The Man & Le Mans, co-directed by Gabriel Clarke and John McKenna, features stock footage of McQueen on set as he strives to make "the ultimate racing motion picture".
It will include interviews with five-time Le Mans winner Derek Bell, David Piper, who lost a leg during filming, and McQueen's co-star in the film, Sigi Rauch.
Chad McQueen tells WENN, "I remember my time as a boy on the set in Le Mans as though it were yesterday, so it is exciting to return. My dad set out to make the most realistic racing film ever, and it was one of the most personally important films in his career, which is why now, more than 40 years later, I believe he would have been proud that it has become one of the greatest stories about racing ever told."
Rocker Shane Macgowan is preparing to call time on his band The Pogues, insisting their huge concert in London this weekend (05-06Jul14) will be one of their last. The Fairytale of New York hitmakers reformed in 2001 after splitting up in 1996, and they have toured several times since.
Frontman MacGowan admits he is surprised the reunion has lasted so long as he only intended to play one show, but he is adamant their concert supporting British band The Libertines at London's Hyde Park on Saturday (05Jul14) marks the beginning of the end.
MacGowan, who was sacked from the group in 1991, tells Uncut magazine, "I just meant to do one gig, to get out of a bind. I didn't intend it to go on this long. No, this is it. This is the last year. They're all interesting gigs - Hyde Park with The Libertines, supporting. I love supporting - blow the f**kers off!... Anyway, this is the last gig."
The Pogues are due to perform at the Festival Fete du Bruit in Landerneau, France on 10 August (14) but are not believed to have any further shows scheduled for 2014.
Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan was awarded France's top cultural honour during a ceremony in his native India on Tuesday (01Jul14). The actor was presented with the Legion of Honour medal by Laurent Fabius, France's Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development, at the Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai to recognise his contribution to promoting cultural diversity across the world.
The moment was extra poignant for the star, as the day would have marked his late mother's birthday.
He said at the ceremony, "It's my mother's birthday. If she was alive, apart from being extremely old, she would have been extremely happy that her son has got the highest and the most prestigious honour in the world... so thank you on behalf of my mother."
He added, "I thank the President of France Mr. Francois Hollande and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development of France, Mr. Laurent Fabius, for finding me fitting for this honour... This honour has further motivated me to take Indian Cinema to the next level of acceptance, love and glory. And thank you France for being so loving and appreciative of Indian films, it's extremely encouraging."
Pop star Nicole Scherzinger often collapsed on bathroom floors and came close to losing her famous singing voice at the height of her battle with bulimia. The former Pussycat Dolls star came clean about her past issues with food in 2012, and now she has detailed the extent of the eating disorder.
In a new interview with Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine, she explains how the "horrible, paralysing disease" left her so weak, she would be discovered out cold by her management.
She finally decided to take action when her illness started to affect her vocal talents. Scherzinger tells the magazine, "I had such a great life on the outside, the Dolls were on top of the world, but I was miserable on the inside."
"It is such a horrible, paralysing disease and it was such a dark time for me. I didn't think anyone knew in my group or in my family because I hid it that well, I was so ashamed. I knew it wasn't normal or healthy because I was hurting myself through this cycle of disordered eating."
"I had started losing my voice, I couldn't sing at shows, and then I remember my manager finding me passed out on the floor in Malta or in the south of France. I thought, 'I'm going to lose everything I love if I don't love myself'... I'm never letting that happen again; you only get one life."
