Our audience has embraced 'Lab Rats' and the talented cast, and we are eager to deliver more comical adventures and clever storytelling in season two."

Following its record-setting launch as Disney XD's #1 original series telecast of all time in Total Viewers and key 6-14 and 9-14 demos, "Lab Rats" is pacing as the network's #1 series ever in Total Viewers (1.1 million), Kids 2-11 (684,000/1.7 rating), Kids 6-14 (719,000/2.0 rating), Kids 6-11 (563,000/2.3 rating) and Tweens 9-14 (489,000/2.0 rating).
