E!'s big Britney Spears documentary tanked during its Sunday (Dec. 22) premiere, earning just 706,000 viewers, according to USA Today. The two-hour special, which amounted to little more than a commercial for Spears' Las Vegas residency, took four months to film, chronicling the singer's preparations for her show.

You may think, "Oh, 706,000 viewers during a holiday week. That's not so bad." Well, it is bad. Here are 10 things that earned more viewers this week than "I Am Britney Jean."

1. A "Vampire Diaries" repeat on Thursday (Dec. 26) on The CW -- 887,000 viewers

2. A repeat of the "One Direction iHeartRadio Album Release Party" on Christmas night on The CW -- 773,000 viewers
