ZOMBIES are back on top!

Todd Jepperson

ZOMBIES are still knocking them dead in ratings, at least with the kids.

The ratings have been released and the new Disney Channel musical ZOMBIES was the top live and same day cable program with kids, tweens, and teens. But what may be even more surprising, it ranked number five in overall viewership. This says a lot, considering that the shambling messes were in direct competition with the extremely nimble athletes performing on the world stage of NBC's Winter Olympic coverage. All that competition, and they still gnawed their way in to the number five spot. The plague only knows how much better ZOMBIES would have done on any other night.

This new offering pits relative newcomers Milo Manheim and Meg Donnely at seemingly impossible odds; one zombie and one cheerleader. What begins as a strange friendship grows into a sweet insight into what it means to be accepting and kind, even with our differences.

Now we wait to see how the show does in stream and replay numbers. What is certain, though, is that the people still love some good old fashioned living-dead.
