Liberace film scores highest ratings in nine years for an HBO movie

Matt DamonMichael Douglas

HBO's Liberace film "Behind the Candelabra" was the highest rated premiere of a movie in the last nine years on the premium cable channel.

And that's covering some very impressive ground, like "Game Change" and "You Don't Know Jack," to name a couple of made-for-TV movies on HBO in recent years.

The first showing of the film at 9 p.m. Sunday drew 2.4 million viewers, according to Deadline.

The last time any film did better was in May of 2004, when "Something the Lord Made," which was filmed in Baltimore, premiered to 2.6 million.

In two showings Sunday night, "Behind the Candelabra" drew 3.5 million viewers. Michael Douglas and Matt Damon starred.
