    The channel's first original series, "Aaron Stone," posted best-ever kids 6-14 (286,000) and boys 6-14 (224,000) numbers in the hour, a triple-digit improvement versus what the channel's predecessor, Toon Disney, averaged a year ago.

    So I guess the original (and only true) Disney Channel is now dead as a doornail. This is very sad.

    I have no problem with Disney XD, it's smart marketing and I would have loved it as a kid. But Disney would be smart to offer an on-deman service or subsidiary channel that offers old Disney Channel programming (Original movies and series) for the Gen X generation that grew up and enjoyed them. I know there is a market for this programming I can't understand why Disney wouldn't capitlize on it.

    Actually, Disney Channel is not gone. Disney XD replaced Disney's "Toon Disney Channel" on all cable line ups and satellite providers.


    Yes have no fear, the original Disney Channel is still in existance.
