In the UK, TV viewers have been treated to near simulcast scenarios with shows premiering in the US and in the UK at almost the same time. Most recently this was with 24: Live Another Day. It has now been announced that the b-movie Sharknado 2: The Second One is also going to debut on SyFy in the UK at 2:10am on Thursday July 31.

Sharknado - 2013Despite the noise on Twitter, Sharknado, the campy horror movie that screened on Prime last night, only drew an average audience of 92,180 viewers.  It was well behind the other networks but the much hyped movie drew much bigger audiences for Prime than is usually the case for their Tuesday night movies.

The average audience for the last 8 weeks had only been 53,414 viewers, with one film garnering only 24,430 so SyFy’s trashy shark film rated exceptionally well in comparison with a 73% increase in audience on the previous two month average.
