There’s no stopping Phineas and Ferb this summer. The show, which has been performing strongly this season, managed to set a new record this Friday: The TV movie Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension became cable’s most-watched film of the year with 7.6 million overall viewers.
The popular pic was cable’s No. 1 scripted telecast in any format among kids 6-11 and 9-14 and was highest in those demos for an animated program since Nickelodeon’s Fairly OddBaby in February 2008. Across the 2nd Dimension, which also garnered positive reviews, defeated all broadcast competition from 8-9:30 p.m. on Friday with a 1.3 rating and 1.7 million viewers in 18-49.
If you missed the movie on Friday, there are several more chances to watch it:
Encore presentations include
- Monday, August 8 (9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel
- Saturday, August 13 (10:00 a.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD
