fraternal twins, Brady and Boomer, are visited by an Island warrior who

Island of Kinkow. The boys try to settle into their new lives as kings
in paradise but during their coronation ceremony, the boys accidently
destroy a sacred ruby causing the Island's volcano, Mt.Spew, to erupt. Pair
of Kings stars Mitchel Musso (Hannah Montana) and Doc Shaw (The
Suite Life on Deck).
When a president's beautiful teen daughter is sent to live with Connor
Heath's family, fifteen-year-old Connor is inducted into a world of
helicopters, double agents and triple crosses in Connor Undercover.
In the series premiere "Arrival", airing at 9:35 p.m. ET/PT, Connor's

the episode "Direct to Video," Joe, Nick and Kevin's dad comes for a
visit. While in town, Dad encourages the boys to do a new video and
introduces them to McP, a cocky teen video director. McP comes up with a
video that is totally wrong for the guys' image, so Kevin takes over and
directs the video instead. Meanwhile, Frankie develops a crush on Macy
and tries to woo her.
At 7 p.m. ET/PT in a new episode of Good Luck Charlie titled
"Charlie Goes Viral," PJ makes a funny video of Charlie that becomes an
overnight internet sensation and leads to an on-camera interview with a
local news crew. However, when Amy takes the opportunity to relive her
college news casting days and Bob uses the opportunity to advertise his
business, the segment spins out of control.
Finally, in a new episode Wingin' It at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT,
Carl is tired of going unnoticed around school and gets Porter to
magically make him the centre of attention. He soon discovers that fame
isn't all it's cracked up to be.
