'Camp Rock 2' Rocks it to the Top

'Camp Rock 2' Rocks it to the Top

The Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato drummed up 8 million viewers for Disney Channel’s Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam during its debut Friday night (September 3).

The TV movie ranked as TV’s No. 1 Labor Day weekend telecast ever among Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14.

Impressive for Kevin, Nick, and Joe but not as impressive as High School Musical 2, which pulled in 17.2 million viewers nationwide in 2007 — the most watched event ever broadcast on basic cable!

    why has this site suddenly become just jared jr?

    Why is that Selena 18 yr old girl (who’s album has only sold 500,000 copies worldwide) center stage on this site because her new music video debuted on DISNEY CHANNEL?

    I wish Jared said something like this, a piece of the truth:

    The Disney Channel tween movie got 8 million viewers and has been promoted on the Disney Channel since December 25, 2010. The movie also has its own WORLD tour known as ‘Camp Rock The Final Jam: World Tour’.

    An episode of The Suite Life on Deck received 7.8 million viewers during its premiere and was not promoted at all. The ‘On Deck’ episode aired in the end of 2009 and Disney could not spend 1 dollar to promote the episode because the Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus are their only priorities.

    What’s the bet they make a camp rock 3 with a theatrical release just like hsm? It was also way too similar to hsm2 for me (which I much prefer).

    @tiayahii: impossible because camp rock 2′s ratings is weak.

    I 100% agree with you. Being a 15 year old and JB fan u would think I sat through the whole movie, but I couldn’t, tried to but it was too boring especially the dialogue in between the songs

    omg I fuc*ing hate wikipedia.. today they wrote that they ratings were 15,08 million viewers .. I was deeply impressed.. and know I am friggin shocked.. this is way to less.. but ya know demi & the jobros are just untalented dudes.. they can never reach hsm´s level.. they even don´t bet the ratings of camp rock 1 .. omg thats embarrassing..
    I cant agree with you more @hannii.. about the points of suite life on deck.. but with the selena´s stuf your not right.. selena is doing a great job in music.. her ablbum sold more than 700.000 copies just in the us.. and her single naturally went platinum here and round and round gold.. so she is good.. and a year without rain is a great song (:

    LMAO 8 million? Isn’t that less than the first movie? xD High School Musical 2 got like 17 million and the Wizards movie got like 12 million.

    @hanni: true, I think Disney’s becoming superficial and they don’t really care about morals and making interesting movies for families as much as they care about making money

    @linna: linna: I agree with you but selena’s album hasn’t sold 700,000 copies in the USA. The album has sold 500,000 in the USA as of July 2010 (source: Billboard). The album hasn’t been certified anywhere except for its Gold certification in the US so the album basically has a good solid debut at an international chart and then drops out of the chart 1-2 weeks later that’s why it’s not certified in foreign countries. And Round and Round didn’t go Gold, it’s not certified by the RIAA.

    @linna: and I forgot to mention the album hasn’t sold ”more than 700,000 copies in the US or anywhere near 700,000 copies”. If it did, the album would be certified Platinum for the shipment of one million copies from distributors (Hollywood Records). A Platinum certification means retailers demand a million copies because the original amount of the album’s copies distributed by the distributors Hollywood Records is running out. So basically there aren’t enough CDs in stock, they’re running out of CDs to sell. If an album sells around 300,000 copies and the only remaining pile is 200,000 CDs, retailers/shops will demand additional 500,000 copies therefore a Gold certification becomes official. If her album sold anywhere near 700,000 copies, the album would be certified Platinum by now for one million copies but that doesn’t mean the album has sold 1 million copies, it only means the album has sold more than 500,000 copies (the exact amount is unknown). The same applies to Naturally, the single.
    There are currently 500,000 copies of Selena’s album in retailers in the USA. However that doesn’t mean 500,000 copies have been sold.

    The album’s Gold certification (the shipment of 500,000 copies to retailers) means the album is running out in shops/retailers so it has reached the 300,000 copies mark (sold somewhere around 300,000 copies).

    @LOL: LOL, seriously? 8 million people tune in to watch a music video of someone who hasn’t even sold anywhere near 700,000-1 million copies of her album?

    Jonas Bros’ album sold 530,000 copies in its first week and Demi Lovato’s albums have been number one. And people can just catch the music video after the movie premieres.. it’s not that hard.. so if 8 million people even cared about Selena’s music why aren’t they buying it??
