"Camp Rock" 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 Fast National Ratings from Nielsen. "Rock" pulled in about half of that movie's audience (17.2 million) in its Aug. 17 premiere.

In the kid demos, "Camp Rock" drew 3.5 million kids 6-11 and 3.4 million tweens 9-14.
The movie made Disney Channel TV's most-watched network from 8-10 p.m. Friday in total viewers, topping runner-up CBS by more than 3 million viewers, as well as in the kid demos.
"Camp Rock" peaked in its final half-hour with 9.8 million viewers, growing by 1.9 million from beginning to end.
The movie airs again Saturday night on ABC and Sunday night on ABC Family and will be available at Disney.com Monday.
