I'll be honest with you: I have not seen Disney's High School Musical 2. (Insert gasps and "how could you's?? here). But apparently, I'm the only one.
According to the latest ratings, the premiere of High School Musical 2 brought in 17.24 million viewers on Friday. That's crazy. Like really, really, ridiculously crazy. As in, it brought in almost the same number as the season finale of Fox's House, which had 17.26 million viewers. As in, the original movie made record-breaking history by being the "most-watched basic cable telecast of all time," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
For all of you HSM lovers, get excited because plans are in the works for two more made-for-Disney movies, as well as a big-screen version of the movie and a stage adaptation. As long as Zac Efron (here with costar and possible gal pal Vanessa Hudgens) signs on, instant hits are sure to follow.
For those of you, like me, who somehow missed out on the phenomenon, catch the next replay Thursday, August 23 at 8pm.
