New York - A healthy number of HBO subscribers were curious about Michael Douglas' performance as Liberace in the TV movie Behind the Candelabra.

The Nielsen company said the 2.4 million people who tuned in to the movie's premiere over the weekend represented the network's biggest audience for one of its original movies since Something the Lord Made in 2004.

Another 1.1 million people saw a repeat of the Liberace movie that began right after the first airing.

ABC's two Dancing With the Stars airings last week had around 15 million viewers, the most-watched program on U.S. television.

And Monday's version of the Univision telenovela Amores Verdaderos landed in the Top 10 among younger viewers last week, an indication of how young the Spanish-language show's audience is.
