Nielsen Social ranked the potboiler at number 7 of the week's top 10 TV series and specials mentioned on Twitter, with more than 6 million unique impressions, 962,000 visitors and 35,000 tweets. "Twitter lost its mind," ABC News' TJ Holmes said in a recap. "One called it 'a two-hour SNL skit where no one breaks,' with one person writing, 'it's Sharknado for moms.'" Video
