Disney Channel has done it again, this time with their original movie, ‘Let It Shine’ which has become the #1 TV movie of the year!

We knew that the Let It Shine premiere was going to be fun and now its a ratings juggernaut! The re-imagining of the classic Cyrano de Bergerac story (an 1837 play written entirely in verse) set in the contemporary world of hip-hop, rap and gospel music is what kids wanted to see and the Disney Channel Original Movie delivered a home run!

A whopping 5.7 million Total Viewers tuned into the June 15 premiere of Let It Shine which solidified it as the year’s #1 TV movie across all core kid demographics with its strong delivery of 3.0 million Kids 2-11, 2.6 million Kids 6-11, 2.3 million Tweens, plus 1.2 million Adults 18-49.

But what happens to those HollywoodLifers that missed it the first time around, well you’re in luck as encore telecasts have been scheduled so you’ll be able to catch all the fun that stars Tyler James Williams, Coco Jones, Trevor Jackson, Brandon Mychal Smith, Courtney B. Vance, Dawnn Lewis, Nicole Sullivan and Alex Désert have to offer.

The premiere of Let It Shine gives another advantage to Disney Channel which now has the year’s Top 5 scripted TV telecasts among Kids 2-11 and Kids 6-11 (two episodes of “Wizards of Waverly Place” including the series’ finale, January telecasts of “Jessie” and “Fish Hooks”).

So HollywoodLifers, did you have a chance to see Let It Shine, if not make sure to catch it on a future airing. It is fantastic!
