The typical hierarchy is from magnetic disk to optical disc to tape. 2" debuted Friday night on the Disney Channel Editing of this page by unregistered or newly registered users is currently disabled due to vandalism. to an all-time record audience for basic cable, 17.2 million viewers. And it re-aired Saturday night and Sunday, so Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens and the rest of the gang had a chance to reach millions more.
To put this in perspective: Broadcast network programs over the summer have ranked No. 1 for a week without managing even 10 million viewers, and a huge chunk of network fare hasn't drawn close to half of what "HSM2" did. And broadcast television has a far broader reach than Disney Channel has on cable -- and numerous viewing parties means the final total may have actually been much larger.
Also: The other big "teen" flick this weekend, the Apatow entertainment machine's acclaimed "Superbad" (granted, they're aimed at waaay different audiences), earned an impressive $12 million at the box office on Friday. But that still translates into fewer than 2 million tickets sold.

"Many of our employees contribute significant hours of overtime during our production season. This is quite common within the television industry," a publicist blithely informed Page Six, confirming the overtime.
So the Page Sixers hit the Dashboard function on their iMacs and did the math: If said employee worked a five-day week five-day week n → semana inglesa

five-day week five n → , she averaged 18.5 hours of work a day, whereas were she working all week with no days off, she was only clocking 13.2 hours a day. Slacker.
As we noted, TV Guide reported that Oprah pulls down $260 million per year. Would it kill her to take a pay cut of, say, a million a year and hire a couple of extra people so the rest of her team can have lives?
