Lindsay Lohan's highly anticipated turn as Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime's Liz & Dickfailed to make much of a splash with viewers in its premiere Sunday night.

The TV movie, also starring Grant Bowler as Richard Burton, averaged 3.5 million viewers and 1.3 million adults in the ages 18-49 demographic. That number was well behind the 6.5 million viewers that tuned into Lifetime's Steel Magnolias remake earlier this fall as well as the 5.8 million for Drew Peterson: Untouchable back in January.

However, Liz & Dick did out-perform Lohan's last TV movie, Labor Pains, which premiered to 2.1 million viewers on ABC Family in July 2009.
