Jonas Brothers Look Bigger on Small Screen

Another opening weekend for the Jonas Brothers. An altogether different result.

JONAS, the band's new Disney Channel comedy, premiered before a solid 4 million viewers Saturday, the network reported today. 

The tween-idol act's show ruled as the night's No. 1 TV show among, yes, tweens, girls, kids and, presumably, tweens, girls and kids who are totally into Joe, Nick and Kevin.

In head-to-head competition with its chief cable competition, JONAS outdrew the second part of the Fairly OddParents special, Wishology (3.6 million for the 8 p.m. half-hour).

The results, while not record-shattering, nor even necessarily iCarly-toppling, mark a turnaround from March, when the Jonas Brothers' big-screen concert movie opened well, for a concert movie, but whiffed at the expectations game.
