Jonas Brothers‘ JONAS moving from Saturdays to Sundays, according to NYDN: Just weeks into its run with the new show JONAS, Disney Channel
has moved original episodes from Saturday to Sunday.
The show, while doing okay in the Nielsens against super-tough Nickelodeon fare on Saturdays, hasn’t set the ratings on fire nor even come close to matching the excitement the Jonas Brothers have gained before.
Until late last week, Disney had JONAS scheduled for Saturday, but viewers instead found the film ‘Cars.’
A Disney spokeswoman said the network usually airs a summer schedule from Memorial weekend through August, and the JONAS move was part of that plan.
Starting this weekend, films will fill Saturdays, and comedy series Fridays and Sunday: ‘In addition to its Sunday airing, JONAS will be seen in other time slots throughout the summer to provide viewers an opportunity to sample the series.’
