Sharknado 2 had more bite than its predecessor.

Nearly four million viewers tuned in to Sharknado 2: The Second One on SyFy Wednesday night. That makes it the most-watched original movie in the network's history. Despite all its buzz, the first flick gathered only 1.4 million viewers last summer.

Sharknado 2 also took a chomp out of social media. At one point it monopolized Twitter's Top 10 trending topics.

If you missed it, SyFy has encore airings of Sharknado 2 Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 9 p.m. And if there were any doubt, Sharknado 3 is already in the pipeline.
