Descendants Ratings

Ratings: Descendants Makes a Bigger Splash Than Teen Beach 2

Disney Channel’s Descendants on Friday night conjured 6.6 million total viewers, a 14 percent larger audience than Teen Beach 2 premiered to earlier in the month.

The kids-of-villains telepic thus stands as the most-watched cable movie of the year to date, and is the highest-rated among the Kids 2-11 and Tweens 9-14 demos.

Descendants also has TVLine commenters near-unanimously clamoring for a sequel, giving it an average grade of “A-” — stay tuned!

Leading out of the TV-movie, the Jessie spinoff BUNK’D — which was not an exercise in subtle acting — debuted to 4.2 million viewers, up 20 percent from what Best Friends Whenever did in post-Teen Beach 2 bow.
