High ratings for 'Camp Rock,' the Disney Channel's Jonas Brothers movie

Friday night's premiere of "Camp Rock" on the Disney Channel, er, rocked (sorry!) in the ratings, drawing 8.9 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research. Among those, 3.4 million were tweenagers, the 9- to 14-year-olds Disney targets.

"Camp Rock" -- which as The Times' Robert Lloyd pointed out in his review, is sort of a Jonas Brothers movie, but mostly not, and co-stars Demi Lovato, who is seen as the inheritor of Miley Cyrus' crown -- now stands as the Disney Channel's second-most-watched TV movie of all time. It falls behind, of course, last summer's record-breaking ratings for "High School Musical 2." That cultural phenomenon/franchise brought in 17.2 million viewers and was the most-watched entertainment (meaning, excluding sports) telecast ever on basic cable.

But "Camp Rock" did outdraw the first "High School Musical" movie, which had an audience of 7.7 million in its initial airing in 2006.

In a cross-platforming strategy among various Disney properties, "Camp Rock" will be rebroadcast on ABC's "Wonderful World of Disney" tonight (Saturday) and on ABC Family tomorrow (Sunday).

for anyone who says that this movie was bad, or needed more Jonas, this movie wasnt all about them, the other two were in there, yah, but i believe that the real meaning and breakdown of most of the movie, was that final part when shane actually found the mystery singer, and found it to be one of his closest friends at the camp.

if you dont understand this, watch the part where mitchie sings at the final jam over and over again, youll get it...

to all of you who say the lip singing sucked, its not lip singing, there are devices that they use to change your voice a little bit while you sing, and they were already good.

if you viewed this movie online, click on the movie, go to properties, and check the box that says "drop frame rate to match audio" or something like that, and if it gets off, uncheck and recheck....

I LOVED this movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Jonas Brothers made it even better!!!!! I think Demi was a great actress and did a great job!!! And for all those haters, you should get a life!!!!! You don't have to bash on other ppl to make yourself feel better. I think everybody in the movie was great and I hope they make a second one!!!!!!!! Jonas Brothers 4- EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i thought it would be better cooler demi is preetty but they should have gotten someone pretter i mean her smile all open i love the song this is me but only the same song thro the whole movie she only sang one song the othr one who will i be is only half in hsm they had a lot of songs they should have gotten selena gomez instead shes really preety joe was asm hes so hot

i liked camp rock. it was a really good movie but also dissapointing. i mean the reason why i say that is because that the movie mostly was all about shane. i think that nick and kevin should have been in the movie more often. Well i guess they will be in Camp rock2(if there is one.) I didnt rly care about joe and demi levato about the kiss they r gonna do it in the 2nd movie probably so yeah.

they should have puttin some one way prettier like ashley selena miley that one girl coped ashley she rocked in piture this joe is freakin hot but demi is to sisterish 4 him ashley would have been better nick shuold have come out more now they will put demi on mag radio but i think shse a little bit concieded

I LOVE THE JO BROS, BUT THIS MOVIE SUCKEDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD SUCKEDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD SUCKEDDDDDDDDDDDDDD THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT LIKED IT WERE THE LITTLE CHILDREN, THE PLOT WAS SO LAMEEEEE, HSM 1AND 2 WERE BETTER THAN THIS, THE ONLY REASON IT GOT HIGH RATINGS WAS BECAUSE THEY SAID THE JO BROS WERE GOING TO BE IN IT. I THINK THE 2ND 1 WILL SUCK JUST LIKE THE FIRST 1

I personally don't get what all the hype is all about with high school musical, but I ABSOLUTELY LOVED CAMP ROCK. I'm hoping they turn it into a play. 10 out of 10 Stars. Whoo Hoo.

I loved Camp Rock, but I was disappointed to see Nick and Kevin weren't in it basically at all. I love both Kevin and Nick, and I think Kevin did an AWESOME part in playing his role. It's not that easy to play a part where you're supposed to be stupid.
