Those numbers are expected to grow with delayed viewing over the next few weeks.

Janet who is private took the viewers on an emotional ride with her two-night, four-hour  story  which covered her journey through  her music and acting  career,  family .romantic relationships,  and the various setbacks and obstacles  she experienced – including the fallout from the 2004 Super Bowl Halftime Show with Justin Timberlake.

Janet’s documentary  was the talk of the town on social media,  with it being  at the top of trending topics across all TV during its premiere nights. The hashtag “#JanetJacksonDoc” ranked No. 1 on Twitter and garnered 1.1 million interactions throughout airings over the weekend, according to Talkwalker. #JanetJacksonDoc was the most social program for Lifetime since “Surviving R. Kelly.”

At the conclusion of the documentary, Jackson debuted her new song “Luv I Luv,”  with  many of her  hit songs rising to the top  of the iTunes’ charts . Her album “Control” too the top pop spot, “Rhythm Nation” in the top R&B slot and “Design of a Decade” entering the Top 10 on the iTunes U.S. Chart. Jackson’s music videos for “That’s the Way Love Goes,” “All for You,” “Rhythm Nation,” “Again,” “Control” “Miss You Much,” “Escapade,” “The Pleasure Principle,” “If” and “You Want This” took up all 10 pop spots. Furthermore, eight albums in the Top 10 iTunes U.S. Pop Chart currently belong to Jackson with “Control” at No. 1, “Design of a Decade” coming in second, “The Velvet Rope” landing in fifth along with “Best of Number Ones,” “Unbreakable” clinching seventh and “Damita Jo” ending in 10th place.
