The premiere of Disney Channel's "Teen Beach Movie" on Friday, July 19 (8:00 p.m.) created the perfect ratings wave, amassing 8.4 million Total Viewers, ranking as Friday's #1 TV telecast and the #1 TV movie of 2013 to date. A family viewing event, the movie also attracted a solid adult audience, delivering nearly 1.6 million/1.5 rating in Adults 18-49, standing as the #1 telecast in the time period across broadcast and cable networks.

"Teen Beach Movie" built each half-hour, peaking with 9.0 million Total Viewers and 4.9 million Kids 2-11.

The movie led into the strong preview of the sitcom "Liv & Maddie" (9:45 p.m.), which delivered 5.8 million Total Viewers, 3.2 million Kids 2-11, 2.7 million Kids 6-11 and 2.4 million Tweens, becoming the network's #2 series debut ever in Kids 6-11 and most-watched in Total Viewers in two and a half years - since 11/7/10 ("Shake It Up").
