HSM2 Hits the Top and may win the prize!!


As you already know High School Musical 2 premiered on Friday night… They may hit some of the largest ever numbers according to the New York Times: 

The Friday night premiere of the Disney Channel made-for-television movie “High School Musical 2” has set numerous ratings records and delivered the largest single audience in basic-cable television history, according to preliminary ratings reports provided by Disney.

In early overnight estimates, the debut of “High School Musical 2,” a sequel to the wildly popular 2006 children’s television movie about a diverse group of teenagers who learn to channel their inner theater geeks, was watched by 17.2 million viewers nationwide.

If these estimates hold up, it would make “High School Musical 2” the most watched event ever broadcast on basic cable, surpassing the debut of “Monday Night Football” on ESPN, which attracted 16 million viewers on Sept. 23, 2006.

Young viewers had been anticipating the sequel to “High School Musical,” which catapulted young stars like Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens to stardom and generated an estimated $100 million in sales of DVDs and CD soundtracks for the Walt Disney Co., for more than a year and a half.
