Disney Channel’s Jonas Brothers movie “Camp Rock” debuted big Friday night, though it didn’t match last year’s record-setting “High School Musical 2.”

I’ve been anticipating this movie since January, and it really delivered this time. The movie was much more diverse than HSM not only in actors but also in music. It had rock, R&B, hip hop, and pop. I was really impressed by Joe Jonas “Shane” acting and the chemistry he had with Demi Lovato “Michie” was really perfect.

“Camp Rock,” which features a slew of musical performances from the teen heroes, averaged 8.9 million total viewers at 8-10 p.m. Friday, making it the cable network’s second-most-watched original movie ever behind “HSM 2,” according to Nielsen. “Camp Rock” pulled in about half of that movie’s audience (17.2 million) in its August 17 premiere.

However, “Camp Rock” did outperform the original “HSM,” which debuted in January 2006 to 7.7 million viewers, and other original movies like “Jump In!” which averaged 8.2 million in January 2007.

In the kid demos, “Camp Rock” drew 3.5 million kids 6-11 and 3.4 million tweens 9-14, which Disney said was higher than “American Idol‘s” most recent season premiere and finale on Fox.

The movie made Disney Channel the most-watched network from 8-10 p.m. Friday in total viewers, topping runner-up CBS by more than 3 million.

On Saturday, “Camp Rock” averaged 3.6 million total viewers when it aired as part of on sister broadcast channel ABC. It aired again Sunday on cable’s ABC Family, and will premiere on Disney.com Monday.

I think if it had Corbin Bleu, it would have been better though, lol.

It’s almost been a decade since “Beverly Hills, 90210”, was on, but hey, it’s never too late for a spinoff.

The CW is developing a contemporary update of the popular ’90s teen soap with possibly a bit of sass since “Veronica Mars” creator Rob Thomas is in talks to write the project.

Plotwise, there’s not much to tell yet, but the network should be deciding whether to order a pilot by month’s end.

If this deal goes through, it would bring Thomas back into The CW fold after “Veronica Mars” ended its three-season run last spring. He had attempted a fourth season of the show with a time jump, setting the tiny sleuth in the FBI Academy, but it didn’t fly.

“90210” previously spawned another spinoff, the equally popular “Melrose Place”,  “90210” has had a revival of sorts with two members of its cast — Jennie Garth and Ian Ziering — appearing on ABC’s “Dancing WIth the Stars”  and Tori Spelling getting her own reality attention with “Tori & Dean: Inn Lover.”

Since “90210” revolved around the young and wealthy in Beverly Hills, the spinoff could be a good companion to “Gossip Girl,” which has a similar premise but set on the East Coast in Manhattan.
