Disney Channel’s premiere of “Teen Beach 2” last Friday has racked up about 7.5 million viewers with three days of DVR playback included, making it basic cable’s most-watched non-sports telecast since the season finale of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” in March.

The song, sand and surf fest, whose cast includes Ross Lynch of “Austin and Ally” and Maia Mitchell of “The Fosters,” also stands as the calendar year’s most-watched cable TV movie, according to Nielsen. And it’s the highest-rated cable telecast in target youth demos of kids 6-11 (3.2 million) and tweens 9-14 (2.8 million) since the original “Teen Beach Movie.” (That telepic, the second highest-rated original cable movie of all time, drew more than 8.4 million same-night viewers alone when it bowed on Disney Channel in July 2013.)

Including encore telecasts, “Teen Beach 2” has reached 13.3 million total viewers, including 4.4 million kids 6-11 and 4.2 million tweens 9-14. The movie’s availability on the Watch Disney Channel service has resulted in 846,000 views to date.

The Disney Channel Original Movie production begins airing on Disney Channels around the world later this month.
