Cheetah Girls Claw To Top of Primetime RatingsTuesday, August 26, 2008
According to Variety, the girls, which include 3LW members Kiely and Adrienne, edged out the Olympics in kids ages 6 to 11 (2.8 million overall) and in tweens 9 to 14 (2.4 million).
The 6.2 million total catapulted "Cheetah Girls" into second place among all original movies scheduled on TV this summer; in first place is the Disney Channel's "Camp Rock," featuring the Jonas Brothers, which scored 8.9 million on June 20.
Two previous "Cheetah Girls" movies also chalked up humongous numbers on Disney Channel -- 6.5 million viewers in August 2003 and 7.8 million in August 2006.
In related news, the Cheetah Girls recently announced a fall tour which will kick off October 8th in Austin, Texas.
