Fascinating fact:

The premiere of the Sharknado sequel was a big hit on U.S. TV on Wednesday night (30Jul14) – Ian Ziering and Tara Reid’s so-bad-it’s-good disaster movie pulled in 3.9 million viewers, making it cable network SyFy’s most-watched film ever. The original TV movie became an instant cult phenomenon when it aired last year (13). The sequel featured cameos from Kelly Osbourne, blogger Perez Hilton, Judd Hirsch, Billy Ray Cyrus and Richard Kind and co-starred Vivica A. Fox and Sugar Ray singer Mark McGrath.
