The masses have clamored for it and the good people at SyFy have heard you. A sharknado will be hitting a theater near you at Midnight on Friday August 2nd. As you probably know, Sharknado was a social media sensation. Entertainment Weekly reported that the campy movie debuted on July 11 with 1.4 million viewers. The movie then went viral, and I mean amazingly viral. At one point on Twitter it was trending at an incredible 5,000 tweets per minute. It saw it’s second showing on SyFy increase to 1.9 million viewers, with it’s third airing on July 27 bringing in 2.1 million viewers, a record for the SyFy. I and two of my sons may or may not have been among the 1.9 million viewers during the second airing. I can confirm nothing.
