Lifetime's debut of the original movie "The Pregnancy Pact" on Saturday, Jan. 23 became basic cable's most-watched film among women 18-34 since 1998. It earned a 4.2 rating in households, attracting 5.9 million total viewers.

The film centers on a rise in teen pregnancy in a small town, which alerts a reporter (Thora Birch) enough to investigate and discover that maybe the buns in the oven were deliberately planned. Camryn Manheim and Nancy Travis also star in the film.

"Pregnancy Pact" got a 4.3 rating among women 18-49, a 4.8 among women 18-34, a 3.7 among women 25-54 and a 3.65 among women 18 and over.

Overall, the movie was good for Lifetime, ranking in as the fourth-highest rated film among women 18-49 in the network's history. It's the second-highest rated original film premiere for Lifetime ever in the women's and adult 18-34 demos.

"Pregnancy Pact" is loosely based on a true story about a group of pregnant teens in Massachusetts' Gloucester High School.
