The Jonas Brothers The Jonas Brothers

The Jonas Brothers have set the tween scene aflutter with their pop odes, and now the trio is taking on TV with a new Disney Channel series that premiered on Saturday.

JONAS (Saturdays, 8 pm/ET) is the story of the Lucas brothers (played by Kevin, Nick and Joe Jonas), who live in a converted firehouse with their folks, attend high school and perform in a popular rock group called, oddly, JONAS. Little brother Frankie Lucas is played by "Bonus Jonas" Frankie.

Critics are comparing the lighthearted comedy to the Emmy-winning 1960s musical series The Monkees, which also centers on the lives of the members of a pop-rock group.
