Kids Rule On Friday Night
More viewers tuned in to a made-for-TV movie on the Disney Channel Friday than they did for any program on television -- broadcast network outlets included, according to Nielsen Research. The ratings company said that The Cheetah Girls 2 drew 7.8 million total viewers, edging out Disney's previous record holder, High School Musical, which drew 7.7 million viewers last January. As expected, the TV movie's primary audience was young girls who tuned in in massive numbers. It captured 61 percent of girls 6-11 and 59 percent of girls 9-14.
