'Hannah Montana' brings Disney high ratings

After nearly five years and more than 100 new episodes on Disney Channel, Hannah Montana wrapped up with a bang.

ABC says that Sunday's series finale of the show that made Miley Cyrus a household name delivered 6.2 million viewers, outperforming its record-setting fourth-season average by 9 percent.

The finale was cable's No. 1 telecast in the 7 p.m. hour among kids 6-11 and tweens 9-14, and posted Disney Channel's highest ratings ever in the hour in total viewers and among kids 6-11.
