February is known as a sweeps month of major events, with the Super Bowl, Grammys and Oscars annually making life difficult for the competition on their respective Sundays. This year, NBC filled out the month’s other Sunday very nicely, as its “Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special” delivered near-Grammy numbers itself and almost single-handedly carried the network to a weekly victory in young adults.
The Peacock was running fourth in the 18-49 demo until Sunday night’s special but ended up winning with a 2.1 rating, followed by ABC (1.7), CBS and Fox (both 1.5) Univision and TNT (both 1.0), according to Nielsen estimates for the Feb. 9-15 frame. CBS rolled in total viewers, this time by about 1.5 million over runner-up NBC (9.3 million vs. 7.8 million).
The first full week of the February sweep, meanwhile, saw some strong performances in syndication (see below), with “Wendy Williams” and “Dish Nation” setting series highs and several entertainment magazines hit season bests. »

Featuring actors familiar to viewers from the net’s primetime series, Disney Channel scored in the ratings Friday night with “Bad Hair Day,” which averaged nearly 4 million viewers and became cable’s most popular telecast of the year in key kids demos.
The pic, starring Laura Marano (from current series “Austin & Ally”) and Leigh-Allyn Baker (from “Good Luck Charlie,” which wrapped last year), drew about 2 million kids 2-11, 1.6 million kids 6-11 and 1.4 million tweens 9-14, according to Nielsen estimates.
Disney Channel made “Bad Hair Day” available early to verified users on the Watch Disney Xd app, allowing viewers to watch on tablets, phones, computers and set-top boxes. Since Feb. 6, the movie has amassed 435,000 on Watch Disney Channel.

TVLine met up with the 19-year-old actress/singer to tease Bad Hair (which is available now via Disney On Demand and Watch Disney, and premieres Friday the 13th on Disney Channel), survey some big changes for Austin & Ally and make note of her most un-Disneylike behavior. (Worry not, kids – it’s quite family friendly.)
Tvline | How are we describing Bad Hair Day? »
In anticipation of the Feb. 13 premiere, Variety has a sneak peek clip of “Bad Hair Day,” in which Marano stars opposite Baker, who’s also exec producing. The TV movie follows a high school tech wiz, Monica (Marano), on her disastrous prom day, starting when she wakes up with uncontrollable hair and a destroyed gown, and ending with her leaning on a cop, Liz (Baker) who’s on the search for a missing necklace that’s inexplicably in her possession. Prom day only gets worse when the unlikely duo is pursued by a dogged jewel thief (Christian Campbell) on a wild chase across the city.
The comedic duo tells Variety about their new pic.
You’ve both had huge success on hit Disney Channel shows. »

Friday the 13th of February will indeed be an unlucky day for Austin & Ally‘s Laura Marano, when the Disney Channel original movie Bad Hair Day premieres — and TVLine has an exclusive look at the extended trailer.
In Bad Hair Day, Marano plays Monica, a high school senior who on the morning of her prom can’t even come close to managing her mane. Worse, her dress gets wrecked, and then on top of it all, Monica is mistakenly enlisted by Liz (Good Luck Charlie‘s Leigh-Allyn Baker), a down-on-her-luck cop who’s on the trail of a jewel thief »
