Disney Family Singalong Scores Mega Ratings
The Disney Family Singalong aired Thursday night at 8pm on ABC scoring the network’s biggest ratings in the 8pm timeslot this season. The Singalong featured celebrity guests singing popular Disney songs from home.
According to Billboard.com,The Disney Family Singalong received a 2.6 rating among viewers 18-49 years old with 10.3 million viewers. It was the biggest same-day rating for any network primetime since the Oscars.
Mega stars like Beyonce, Ariana Grande, Donny Osmond and Christina Aguilera were involved, but they were not the draw. Because, it was not until the show aired that viewers knew the extent of the celebrities involved.
Ryan Seacrest hosted (also from his home) and started the show with, “Tonight, we come together and take a break to share in the joy of Disney.” It is obvious from the ratings that millions of people needed some Disney joy Thursday night.
The show started with a Beauty and the Beast montage from Derek and Julianne Hough. Their “Be Our Guest” sequence was self-filmed and was complete with costumes, singing and dancing.
Little Big Town joined the show from their respective kitchens with their version of the Mary Poppins classic, “A spoonful of sugar”.
Ariana Grande delivered with “I won’t say (I’m in love)” from Hercules and in turn explained her recent Instagram pictures of Megara from the movie.
But, of course, the star everyone was talking about after the show was Beyonce. She performed “When you wish upon a star” from her home. Although, we could see none of it because she kept the camera very tight on her face. But, her rendition was beautiful and she said in closing, ” “Please hold on to your families tight, be safe, and don’t give up hope,” she ended by saying. “We’re going to get through this, I promise.”
It’s not a surprise the ratings were so high for The Disney Family Singalong. It was the perfect combination of celebrity, song, dance, joy and of course Disney magic.
