Raven Rules Disney Channel

Publish date:

If any doubt remained about Disney Channel’s top original series, the debate ended July 29.

That’s when an episode of That’s So Raven became the service’s highest-rated original series ever across a couple of key metrics.

The “Country Cousins” installment of Raven notched a 3.6 household rating (3.1 million) and a 14.8 mark against girls 6-11 (1.4 million of those watchers), according to Nielsen Media Research data.

Those performances bested the 3.1 household rating registered by the March 8 episode of Lizzie McGuire and a 13.6 mark against the aforementioned demo recorded by the Hillary Duff vehicle Feb. 7, 2003.

The Country Cousins installment -- in which star Raven plays three additional characters, each a Baxter-family relative from the family’s country farm -- also scored a Disney Channel original-show high among tween girls (14.7 rating/1.4 million).

And the episode garnered a 10.0 rating among kids 6-11 and a 9.6 among tweens 9-14.
