[via press release from Disney Channel]


Disney Channel's "Descendants 3" has accomplished something purportedly improbable, defying the naysayers by delivering more viewers than its 2017 predecessor "Descendants 2" with a 144% upsurge to 11.2 million Total Viewers (final L+7 data available today). Further affirming the popularity of the "Descendants" franchise among its targeted youth demographics, the Aug. 2 premiere of "Descendants 3" is now the highest-rated telecast since 2015's "Descendants" among Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14. The new L+7 data showed major increases across all key demographics from L+SD: 164% among Kids 6-11 to 3.67 million delivered (15.4 national rating/23.27 coverage rating) and 129% among Tweens 9-14 to 3.25 million delivered (13.4 national rating/19.91 coverage). The premiere also delivered 3.27 million Adults 18-29 (2.5 national rating/3.84 coverage rating).

"Descendants 3" is also the most-ever-viewed title on Disney Channel's MVPD app DisneyNOW and, in its first seven days, was the #1 content on both the DisneyNOW App and VOD.

Consumers have also engaged intensely with "Descendants 3" music. In its third week, the "Descendants 3" soundtrack charted at #14 on the Billboard Top 200 and is still #1 on the Billboard Pop genre album chart in the U.S. For the second consecutive week, "Queen of Mean" and "Night Falls" are the #1 and #2 music videos on VEVO, respectively, in the U.S. Three other music videos also among the Top 20 VEVO Music Videos in the U.S. - "One Kiss" at #14, "Do What You Gotta Do" at #15 and "Break This Down" at #18.

On VEVO/YouTube, "Descendants 3" content has more than doubled to over 380 million views. Its music video "Queen of Mean" has posted more than 67.2 million views; "Night Falls" has posted nearly 50 million views; "One Kiss" has 26 million views; "Break This Down" has 25.6 million viewers and "Do What You Gotta Do" has 20.3 million views, to date.
