Jonas Brothers' "Camp Rock" Rocks Ratings

Posted: Updated:

Disney Channel's Jonas Brothers movie "Camp Rock" debuted big Friday night, though it didn't match last year's record-setting "High School Musical 2."

"Camp Rock," which features a slew of musical performances, averaged 8.9 million total viewers at 8-10 p.m. Friday, making it the network's No. 2 most-watched original movie ever behind "HSM 2," according to Nielsen. "Camp Rock" pulled in about half of that movie's audience (17.2 million) in its Aug. 17 premiere.

However, "Camp Rock" did rank as the network's most-watched nonsequel movie ever, outperforming the original "HSM," which debuted in January 2006 to 7.7 million viewers, and other original movies like "Jump In!" which averaged 8.2 million in January 2007.
