Disney Channel -- 2010

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.

Disney Channel was yet again the top choice for Tweens 9-14, a coveted demographic in which the network has ranked No. 1 in Prime for 10 consecutive years and No. 1 for 2 consecutive years, on a Total Day basis, as defined by Nielsen and the industry as a whole (6:00 a.m.-6:00 a.m.). Additionally, in Prime, Disney Channel ranked No. 1 for the 8th consecutive year among Kids 6-11, and has stood among the Top 2 cable networks in Total Viewers for 5 straight years.

Paul DeBenedittis, Senior Vice President, Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide, said: "2010 was an outstanding year for Disney Channel, with the Top 2 series in the kid and Tween demographics ('Hannah Montana Forever' and 'Good Luck Charlie'), particularly strong performances of our three new series ('Fish Hooks,' 'Good Luck Charlie' and 'Shake it Up') and our Disney Channel Original Movie ('Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam') ranking as TV's #1 movie among Tweens and cable TV's #1 movie in Total Viewers. We end the year buoyed by our viewers' longstanding appreciation of the programming we deliver and, as we enter a new year, we remain dedicated to introducing optimistic stories, positive characters and great music with themes that reflect kids lives."
