Turns out, Americans aren't really into watching Lady Gaga sing and dance with Muppets on Thanksgiving.

Even with guest appearances from Sir Elton John, Kristen Bell, Ru Paul and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the holiday special flopped big time in the ratings.

Only 3.6 million viewers tuned in to watch "Lady Gaga & The Muppets Holiday Spectacular" on ABC. Even worse, it had a 0.9 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic. For context, ABC aired an annual repeat of "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving," which celebrated its 40th anniversary, earlier in the evening and 5.3 million viewers watched. It had a 1.6 rating in the same demographic.

Entertainment Weekly points out that "A Very Gaga Thanksgiving," which aired on ABC in 2011 had a 78 percent higher rating with 5.4 million viewers.

Always the grateful artiste, Gaga paid no attention to her big ratings tank and tweeted a note to her fans the same night: "Happy Thanksgiving little turkey+tofurkey monsters, I love you with am, my heart and thought all day about how grateful I am to be"
