It looks like Miley Cyrus better plan her next career move.
The Lady Gaga performance act thing isn't working ... on television anyway.
Cyrus' two-hour NBC special Sunday night was a local and national flop on a low viewing night that ended the holiday weekend.
According to Marc Berman of the website Media Insights, the rating for Cyrus' two-hour "Bangerz Tour" program may have hit a historic national low for a Sunday night on NBC.
It had a 1.4 household rating nationally and dropped audience every half hour until the final 30 minutes. It had only 2 million viewers and didn't even hit a 1 rating in the age 18-49 demographic.
It didn't even do as well nationally as a repeat of a reality show that was its lead-in, "American Ninja Warrior" (1.5), or a two-hour ABC reality singing competition "Rising Star" (2.7).
Locally, Cyrus' program had a 2.8 rating on Channel 2, finishing third among network programs in its time slot to "Rising Star" (3.3) and the two-hour CBS original drama competition on Channel 4 of "Reckless" (2.2) and "Unforgettable" (3.7).
In short, you can just about forget about Cyrus ever getting another national broadcast TV special.
