If you think Beyoncé has been popping up all over television recently, she has. After her blockbuster performance at the 2013 Super Bowl, Beyoncé Knowles most recently appeared on HBO in a documentary called “Life Is But a Dream” and on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN Network. On Feb. 19, TV By the Numbers reported that both shows triggered significant ratings success.
A record-breaking TV audience tuned in to HBO on Saturday to watch “Life Is But A Dream.” The documentary was the most watched in nearly a decade and even topped Spike Lee’s “When the Levees Broke” about Hurricane Katrina in 2006. It also topped “Girls,” which usually airs on Sunday nights on HBO, with nearly three times the number of viewers. Fans were able to get up close and personal with Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s baby, Blue Ivy, and learned more about the R&B superstar’s private life through home movies and exclusive concert footage. “This film is about a woman and all of the challenges that we all go through,” Beyoncé told MTV about the documentary. Below is this week’s rebroadcast schedule for “Beyoncé: Life Is But a Dream.”
