Zac wut the Ef is wrong with you on SNL  


All the Zefron skitsCollapse )

HQs of BumpersCollapse )

ETA: ONTD seems to love him (and think he's gay all of the sudden again, but that's neither her nor there).

Also guys from here:

Zac Efron hosted “Saturday Night Live,” and it wasn’t awful. It also wasn’t great. The best skit featuring Efron was the post-“High School Musical” bit in the video above. Troy Bolton returned to high school after a year in college—disillusioned that not everyone in the world sings their feelings.

Efron wasn’t the problem. He was a pro in every skit he did—as the German exchange student tattling on Gilly and Kathy Lee Gifford’s singing son, Cody. The writers just didn’t put him in any amazing skits. I think they missed some great opportunities.

After rewatching some of the videos this morning my initial thoughts that he did good, but not great have actually changed. I really really enjoyed them even on second viewing. I totally think the writers missed out on some great opportunites and played it safe, but this leaves me even more excited for the next time he hosts. I find it interesting how many people think he did a better job than Seth Rogen--I agree!!

I usually hate SNL, but Zac definitely made it better.
God, those pictures are good.

"I am your mother" is one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time - plus we get Zac's ever-amazing "I'm so upset that I'm about to cry" look.

Wooohooo!
http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/entertainment_tv_tvblog/2009/04/zac-efron-saturday-night-live-score-higher-ratings-than-primetime-fare-saturday-ten-commandments-cha.html

Moses led ABC to victory Saturday night.

But Zac Efron -- as "Saturday Night Live" host -- outscored Moses and everything in prime time.

NBC's "Saturday Night Live" posted a 5.1 household rating in preliminary ratings.

i want to post it to ontd but i'd like the numbers to be comparable. they give zac's primetime score but the ten commandments in number of viewers.

There were definitely some skits that were less than stellar, which had absolutely nothing to do with Zac, they just weren't funny. But I was really impressed with how he didn't even crack a smile, not once, even when someone was yelling in his face or threatening to lick his toe. A lot of guests on SNL are always threatening to crack up, and he didn't.

I was super impressed with him, like the review said, I wish they would have given him better material to work with.

I think, officially, that the Today Show skit was my favorite. idk why lol it just is. I think its a combination of his facial expressions and the blonde hair. lol.

IA about the skits though...he was hilarious but they didn't give him much to work with...but he did amazing. :D
Beejeezbee on April 12th, 2009 09:23 pm (UTC)

Ok, now I've watched it all - actually more than once. :-)

I should probably say a few things upfront... while I know what SNL is and have seen a few skits, I'm not really familiar with the show or most cast members and especially not with any recurring skits and characters. My knowledge is fairly superficial. Plus, I know that I don't always get US humor/I hae a . Obviously, I'm also lacking knowledge how hosts normally are, so I can't really compare. That out of the way...

I think Zac did a really great job but he wasn't super funny imo. However, I would attribute that to the writing and with the exception of the son in the Today show he wasn't playing any crazy characters. What did fascinate me throughout the show is the different looks Zac had and how much his appearance changed by his hair alone.

Onto the individual skits...

Opening monologue:
I really liked it. I laughed and the content was dead on. I also thought his delivery was really good.

Today Show:
I really loved it although it didn't have many jokes per se; mostly because it was so great to see Zac not being Zac but playing a totally over the top character. Plus, the outfit and hair was to die for.

Gilly:
Was lame and not funny at all. The only good thing was seeing Zac in that ridiculous outfit.

Underage drinking:
Was OK but it wasn't that memorable or fantastic.

Celebrity blogger during weekend update:
I liked that quite a bit, especially since it reminds me a lot of what you see on blogs/sites (eg like ONTD): people bitching just to bitch.

HSM4:
I thought it was very good but somehow I was hoping they would rip into it even more. I really like the end with Disney though.

World War/soldier:
I love that one. It was ridiculous and funny and Zac was fantastic in it.

Pizza Rolls Commercial:
The first take was funny but then it grated on my nerves. I'm not a fan of that one.

Foot rub:
Brilliant. It had a nice build up and a really funny ending with him sucking his toes.

I've also been looking around other sites and while not everyone love the episode, people seem to think he did a good job - even on TWoP. There was hardly any critisism at all. And if Twitter and the websites are any indication, he does a great job of converting new demos over. :D

Beejeezbee on April 12th, 2009 09:25 pm (UTC)
Oh, and I forgot - the 2nd and the 6th cap are incredibly hot.

After watching Zac with all those different wigs and styles, I really wish he would get a new haircut. His fringe really makes him look like a kid. I think it would actually help him being perceived more grown up with a more mature hairstyle.
Beejeezbee on April 12th, 2009 10:13 pm (UTC)
I have something nice. :-)

From a SNL regular blogger (and visitor)... she went to dress reheasal yesterday and blogged extensively what was changed and cut here. Enjoy!
