Britney Spears’ residency at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino begins tonight, and while people may be anticipating the show, they weren’t that excited about E!’s two-hour documentary, I Am Britney Jean, following the four months of preparation for it. USA Today reports the Dec. 22 premiere garnered just 706,000 viewers. As of now, you can catch the full documentary here, though the first riveting question Spears is asked — “What’s your favorite bubble gum?”* — may have you switching YouTube channels.

*Answer: “Watermelon. Watermelon bubble gum, man, it’s the best. It’s so good.”
