Kids swoon as Miley Cyrus ends run on Disney Channel's 'Hannah Montana'
The Disney Channel series about ordinary girl Miley Stewart (Miley Cyrus) who has a secret life as a pop star wrapped its fourth and final season Sunday with a finale that drew 6.2 million total viewers, according to the Nielsen Co. That was up 9% compared with the average this season, the show's most-watched.
Among kids 2 to 11, the finale drew 2.1 million viewers.
Despite the show's popularity, Cyrus has said she's relieved to be leaving. "I've grown out of it," she told an interviewer last year.
The actress turned 18 in November. The following month, video surfaced on TMZ of Cyrus smoking a bong. She claimed she was smoking salvia, a psychoactive drug that's legal in California.
