Disney’s ‘Cheetah Girls’ claws to top

Movie musical scores 6.2 million viewers

Beating all competition but the Beijing Olympics on NBC, the Disney Channel’s original movie musical “The Cheetah Girls: One World” harvested 6.2 million total primetime viewers on Friday.

“Cheetah Girls,” which ran for 90 minutes starting at 8, actually edged out the Olympics in kids 6 to 11 (2.8 million overall) and in tweens 9 to 14 (2.4 million).

The 6.2 million total catapulted “Cheetah Girls” into second place among all original movies scheduled on TV this summer; in first place is the Disney Channel’s “Camp Rock,” featuring the Jonas Brothers, which scored 8.9 million on June 20.

Two previous “Cheetah Girls” movies also chalked up humongous numbers on Disney Channel — 6.5 million viewers in August 2003 and 7.8 million in August 2006.
