Disney Channel’s late-Wednesday night block of Disney Replay programming for October has been released.
It would seem that Disney Channel has made the extended weekly Disney Replay block a permanent thing. Through September, the block will continue to air on late-Wednesday nights (early Thursday mornings) from midnight through 6am ET/PT.
During the week of May 30, owning the week’s Top 2 TV telecasts with the series debut of “So Random!” and a Season 2 high performance by “Good Luck Charlie,” Disney Channel ranked as TV’s No. 1 network in Total Day among Tweens 9-14 (534,000/2.2 rating) for the 6th straight week, and for the 24th time in the previous 27 weeks. In addition, this week stood as Disney Channel’s most-watched week among Kids 6-11 in 19 weeks (650,000/2.6 rating) and among Tweens 9-14 in 17 weeks – since weeks of 1/17/11 and 1/31/11, respectively.
Featuring an ensemble of talented young actors, the comedy series “So Random!,” first introduced in “Sonny With A Chance,” will air SUNDAY, JUNE 5 (8:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel. The series will feature original comedic vignettes parodying pop culture and a wide variety of everyday life, big and small.
Demi Lovato tells People that she is leaving Disney Channel’s Sonny With A Chance series. “It made sense for me to go ahead and leave the show to focus on my music,” she said. “It’s kind of sad for me that a chapter of my life has ended but there couldn’t be a better time for me to move on.”
Boasting TV’s Top 10 scripted telecasts fronted my multiple telecasts of “Good Luck Charlie,” “Shake It Up” and “The Suite Life on Deck,” Disney Channel ranked as TV’s No. 1 network in Total Day for the 9th consecutive month among Tweens 9-14 (549,000/2.3 rating), delivering its largest January audience on record in the target demo, as well as among Total Viewers (1.81 million) and Kids 6-11 (673,000/2.7 rating). Impressively, January 11 became the channel’s most-watched non-summer month in its history in the same key demographics. Year to year, Disney Channel posted solid double-digit percent gains in Kids 6-11 (+12% – 673,000 vs. 600,000) and Tweens 9-14 (+10% – 549,000 vs. 499,000).
Powered by an unparalleled slate of original programming for kids and families — notably newcomers “Shake It Up and family comedy “Good Luck Charlie,” and “Hannah Montana Forever” — and the No. 1 TV/Cable movie with “Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam,” Disney Channel recorded its most-watched year in the network’s history in Total Viewers and key kid targets.
Airing the week’s Top 5 TV telecasts and 8 of the Top 10 overall, Disney Channel stood as TV’s No. 1 network in Total Day among Tweens 9-14 (492,000/2.0 rating), topping runner-up Nickelodeon by a solid 9% (450,000/1.8 rating).
