    It didn’t do as well as Camp Rock 1. Jonas Brothers are losing their star power and they promoted this thing so much

  • Luan

    HSM 2 continued in the top!!!
    Camp Rock 2 is lame, so much promote for this?

  • Miranda

    High School Musical 2 did better than Camp Rock 2; HSM 2 had 17 million.

    HSM pwns CR2; High School Musical is Epic :)

  • Gail

    Even with all that promoting, they still couldn’t beat even the first CR! I just hope they don’t make a 3rd and release it into theaters, cuz that would be LAME! HSM>>>>>>>>CR.

  • Matheus Campos

    Yeaaah High School Musical !! Now everyone will focus on the new DC movie: Sharpay Fabulous Adventures! Let’s go Ashley Tisdale <3

  • Mika

    Wow, Disney is milking it with CR2 . Cute movie though.

  • Zanessaxjoenessa

    @Matheus Campos:
    Ewww. Nooo hsm will always be best. I mean a lot of pple said its cuz of the “Troyella” relationship. Not sharpay!

  • Kristina

    There was a heavy load of promotion on the Disney Channel for Camp Rock 2 for a LONG time. Yet, it didn’t beat the original Camp Rock.

  • stephanie

    This is wrong, I think. I heard that Camp Rock 2 had between 15.2 and 15.8 million viewers friday night….which honestly sounds right to me.

  • Ella

    Uhhh..that’s still a lot of viewers though! :))

  • Jason

    8 million is pretty pathetic for all of that promotion

  • Musicismylife

    I think it’s the stupidest thing in the world to release a DVD like 4 days after it actually premiers. What is Disney thinking these days? As somebody already said they are milking it waaaay too much. They think that they can come up with some mediocre high school musical- like movie and expect it to top a phenomenon like high school musical. In my opinion I’m soooo happy that the Jonas brothers are losing their star power. Finally fangirls are coming to their senses. They can’t act and their music is god awful. They’re not even that cute anymore, which was how they got more than half of their fanbase. Now all we have to do is get rid of justin bieber. He’s an even bigger joke than these guys! Lol

  • Zekemaster

    Hahahahahahaha High School Musical 2 and Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie still OWNS.

  • Jonaslove

    OHH shut up all of you whinning, when you star in a movie and can get over 8 million viewers come back here on this post and bitch all you want! Till now! I’m proud of these boys they did amazing and the movie was great!

  • Nick#40

    It’s currently ranking as the 7th most watched Disney Channel movie. How embarassing. xD

  • LoL

    It’s On!…….and nobody’s watching.

  • taylor

    haha. this is a complete fail, considering how much they promoted the damn movie. disney wasted big bucks promoting this. they’re a bunch of money hungry idiots. they’ll probably do a 3rd movie, since they consider the first one a “success” for some reason. this one had 1 million LESS than the flop of a first. that’s BAD.
    the jobros have faded. and demi doesn’t have huge star power to pull in tons of viewers. i don’t believe any disney movie or any tv movie for that matter will be coming close to even touching HSM2′s 17.4 million viewers for a LONG time.
    hopefully this gives them the clue that CR3 would be a terrible idea. they’re not gaining money from this franchise, they are losing it.
    i am surprised it did as bad as it did though. i thought it would’ve at least gotten 12 mil tops. but 8 million? pshh, so much for that 15.8 million crap jonas fans are BSing about.

  • taylor

    uhm no. many sites and disney itself have confirmed it only got 8 million.
    AS IF they could pull in that many. they are not as famous as they used to be, sweetie. dream on.

  • taylor

    high school musical for the win.

  • Christine

    That is pathetic. They started promoting this movie in January. They spent all summer advertising it with the ‘It’s On’ commercials, the road to Camp Rock 2, the tour, Jemi. And all they have to show for it is 8 million viewers. That’s better than most DCOMs, but horrible considering how much time, effort and money was put into the damn thing. It actually did worse than the first one. Looks like the Jonas Brothers are loosing their touch.


    even the wizards movie did better than this one
    maybe CR2 didn’t do so well because it was on the net long time before it aired

  • V

    High School Musical will always be the best! Camp Rock 2 is a rip-off of it. Seriously, CR2 “This is our summer, and HSM3 “This is our year,” it’s practically the same line. The song “It’s On” reminds you of “All For One” and “Can’t Back Down” reminds you of “Work It Out.”

    Disney needs to be more original. Demi can do better than CR2. The JoBros on the other hand should just quit acting AND singing.

  • m

    lol it got less than the first Camp Rock. Not surprised. The movie was bad

  • Selly

    Ya i heard the same thing :$

  • Jane

    Gosh, the worst musical movie eva…seriously….


  • Anibal

    Camp rock SUCKS! :S
    Seriously, High school musical is the best movie VEER on Disney Channel!

  • Anibal


  • Ashley

    camp rock is just EW.

    HSM forever!! <3 ZAC <3

  • Dannie

    I love High School Musical. 1, 2 and 3. And I’m probably waay too old to still love HSM songs and movies but I can’t help it. :)

    Camp Rock… UGH.

  • JMP

    I’m surprised and not so surprised. Yes they promoted the heck out of it, too much IMO, so much pretty much had seen the movie before it aired. There was no surprises.

    Personally I think the numbers were too long, I wanted more scenes with the actors speciall Nate and Dana.

    As for HM, I only saw the first one, that is all I could take again too much music and not the best IMO. I’m too old for either one, but I’m a huge JB fan and for their part I think they did great. My nephews were actually surprised they like it.

  • Sony

    Demi tweeted so much about this movie last night, it was not even funny. 0_0

  • abby

    Oh yeah HSM still owns and will for a LONGGG time. <3

  • abby

    @Dannie: Dont worry I’m too old to be watching the HSM movies and listening to the songs but I still do. There is something so uplifting about those movies. I’ll forever love them.

  • Yenny

    Omg even the WOWP the movie still in second place
    this is weird really, jonas+demi last year was the bomb and now what?
    and the dvd is out this week wtf, what happens in the others countries… i don’t think this is good

  • Sahina

    i have a feeling that it didn’t do as well because they turned Camp Rock into a musical. i was a bit disappointed that they had done it in the first place.

    and some of the songs were a bit too long so i ended up skipping some of them.

    overall, it was a good film.

  • layra

    Camp Rock (1) was way better, but even Camp Rock 2 is better than HSM2. HSM sucks! Camp Rock forever!!

  • 2bedatcool

    that means icarly wins this year her isaved your lkef half hour episode got 11.2 million in one night then antoher 5.2 the next night this year suck it disney

  • leela


  • Glen

    despite the number of viewers, i think Demi Lovato totally owned this Disney Movie. she’s a revelation in the dance prod numbers. Wow Demi! =)

  • crazy4jonas

    it actually had 15.8 million viewers and not just 8! check ur info jj!

  • Bri

    8 million viewers? That’s it? High School Musical 2 had over 17 million
    viewers. Anyway, I still enjoyed Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam!

  • Miranda

    @crazy4jonas: No, I’m sorry you’re wrong. The 8 million is correct. The 15 million was a made up number, the 8 million is fact. Sorry, but HSM will always pwn over CR

  • karla

    Both are great movies !
    I’m proud of them :)

  • LExie

    @crazy4jonas: LOL at all the people thinking it got 15 million viewers.
    sweetie check your info! there are actual reliable sites and disney that confirmed it only got 8 million views. the 15 million crap with just a made up number by jonas/demi fans.
    now 8 million is a lot, but compared to the first and HSM2 it bombed big time, especially since they have been promoting it for months.

  • kaela

    Next summer will focus on the sharpay movie, that will be the evebt for next summer. HSM was a lot better than. CR


  • fan

    CR2 did not bomb, but the number did not previewed as to be expected by Disney or other critics. However, 8 millions viewers are not too shamefully bad and still a pretty good number to celebrite about. It is still Disney type of TV movies and the viewers are mainly kids from 5 to 12 years of age. My grandson is 6 years old and did enjoy watching the dancing and singing of the movie. He is not much into the dialogue and the acting of the movie, but it is still very entertaining and enjoyable to watch. I, myself, just purely enjoyed the singing, dancing, and the songs of the movie. As for the acting, it was just okay because it is a Disney’s TV movie, which they are not concern about the acting but more into the singings, dancings, and songs that will relate to the kids age group of 5 thru 12.

  • meiner

    To “Camp Rock” to reach viewers number you need …
    “High School Musical feeling” … JB … Demi Lovato … a huge and annoying advertising


    I dont like the Jonas brothers… but i like demi lovato
