LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - "Sharknado" isn't the only summer TV movie that's breaking records. Disney Channel's "Teen Beach Movie" is netting some real ratings records.

Factoring in seven-day viewing, "Teen Beach Movie" gains 5 million more viewers for a total 13.5 million viewers. That makes it cable's second most-watched movie in cable history next to Disney Channel's own "High School Musical 2."

It scores the No. 2 cable telecast among its demo of young viewers, as well: Kids 2-11 (7.94 million/20.0 rating), Kids 6-11 (6.37/27.0 rating) and Tweens 9-14 (5.11 million/21.5 rating), again behind only "High School Musical 2."

With those numbers, Disney Channel has produced five of the Top 6 highest rated cable movies of all time, which include the "Wizards of Waverly Place Movie," "Camp Rock," and the "Phineas and Ferb Movie."

TNT's "Crossfire Trail" is the only non-Disney Channel TV movie in the Top 6.

"Teen Beach Movie" follows a group of teens who are somehow drawn into the world of a 60s teen beach movie musical. It stars "Austin & Ally" star Ross Lynch and "The Fosters" actress Maia Mitchell.
