The Disney Channel’s musical tween drama formula has yet another victory as we are finding out the debut of Disney’s Zombies was a resounding success Friday night.

According to Deadline, the Zombies debut attracted 1.14 million viewers, beating Winter Olympic coverage in the target demo on Friday night. In total, Zombies was watched by 10.3 million viewers over the eight times it was aired Friday-Monday. Not too bad.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us. My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 7 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.Other interests include Disney, Sports, 80's Nostalgia, LEGO, Star Wars and Tech Gadgets.
