Disney Channel's newest original series, "Shake It Up," had a big night on Sunday.

The show, which stars Bella Thorne and Zendaya, averaged 6.2 Million viewers for its premiere, making it the channel's 2nd-most-watched series debut overall among Total Viewers (6.2 million) and Tweens 9-14 (2.7 million/11.0 rating) and its No. 1 Sunday premiere on record in Total Viewers, Kids 6-11 (2.6 million/10.6 rating) and Tweens 9-14.

Having "Hannah Montana" as its lead in might have also helped. The hour-long episode of "Hannah Montana" delivered season highs across all target demos, becoming the series' most-watched telecast in more than 3 years among Total Viewers (7.1 million), Kids 6-11 (2.6 million/10.6 rating) and Tweens 9-14 (2.8 million/11.3 rating) – since the post-"High School Musical" telecast on 8/17/07.

Sunday's all-new one-hour episode became the show's 3rd-most-watched telecast of all time in Total Viewers, and 4th-most-watched ever in Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14.
