Full Story: `Cheetah Girls' should keep `tweens' tuned to DisneyBy Charlie McCollum
If you're a parent, or someone who diligently follows pop culture trends, you already know that the Disney Channel has become quite a force among 6- to 14-year-old viewers, who are hard to catch and even harder to keep.
The channel, once home to recycled pieces of all things Disney, has broken its own viewership records almost every week this year. Three of its original series -- ``Hannah Montana,'' ``The Suite Life of Zack & Cody'' and ``That's So Raven'' (which has ended its run, but there's a spinoff on the way) -- not only draw some of the highest ratings on cable TV, but they also beat network shows regularly in the demographic.
