'Band' debuts strong for Disney XD

Comedy launches as network's top series premiere

Disney XD's "I'm in the Band" is off to a strong start.

The comedy launched Monday as the top series premiere in the net's history (including Disney XD's predecessor Toon Disney) in total viewers (863,000) as well as the net's core kid and boy demos: kids 6-14, boys 6-14, tweens and tween boys.

"Band's" companions, "The Suite Life on Deck" and "Zeke and Luther," hit series highs, and the trio delivered Disney XD's most-watched Monday on record in total viewers (601,000) and all key kids demos.
