    Britney Spears Bigger as a Trainwreck

    Britney Spears wasn't exactly sensational. Neither were the ratings.

    Sunday's MTV low-key confessional special, Britney: For the Record, averaged 3.7 million viewers, per the network.

    The audience was larger than what MTV usually draws on Sundays—the network boasted of triple-digit gains in key demographics. And it was bigger than MTV's usual No. 1 show, The Hills.

    But compared to trainwreck Britney of the 2007 Video Music Awards, a show that drew 7.1 million, or dramatic-comeback Britney of the 2008 Video Music Awards (8.4 million), the all-too-human Britney of For the Record was just, well, human.

    Which, all things considered, isn't a bad thing.
