We here at ScottFeinberg.com recently discussed the phenomena of TV shows becoming movies as well as TV series spinning off into other series, but we have yet to approach TV shows that spawned from movies — until now.

MTV’s new series Catfish: The TV Show, based on the 2010 documentary Catfish, follows people who form romantic relationships solely through online communication as they meet their significant others for the first time.

The most recent ratings for Catfish: The TV Show prove it’s clicking with audiences beyond the big screen: Among Monday night cable programs, the series came in third place, following Espn’s Monday Night Football and SportsCenter. Specifically, 2.743 million viewers tuned in to last week’s episode, resulting in a 1.7 rating in the coveted adults 18-49 demographic.

Catfish: The TV Show is only a part of a recent string of shows adapted »
