Zac Efron on SNL Outscores ALL OF SATURDAY NIGHT PRIMETIME  
OMG THIS IS SO FUCKING AWESOME:

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. In the most amusing sketch, Efron played Troy Bolton in "High School Musical 4." Troy told graduating students at his alma mater how rough life would be for them, because people at college don't break into song. Walt Disney (Darrell Hammond) materialized -- he had thawed out -- and warned Troy, "Disney characters aren't supposed to grow up. Just ask Mickey Mouse and Lindsay Lohan."

In prime time, Charlton Heston and "The Ten Commandments" pulled ABC to victory by pulling in 6.8 million viewers. But Moses sprawled outside prime time -- he started at 7 and concluded after 11.

Here's how the other broadcast networks fared in prime time: CBS with 4.7 million, Fox with 4.6 million and NBC with 3.9 million.

ABC also won the 18-to-49 age group so dear to advertisers. Fox was a close second in that count.


p.s. his number was better than seth rogen's. so was his performance.

I never understand all the shares, percentages et al.

This is the first break about it, so I hope someone comes along and sorts it all out. :)

I don't think we'll get that much more commentary on it.

A lot of sites only report primetime numbers not SNL's time slot. But I'm happier they were higher then Seth Rogen's... that is honestly a better comparison than SNL vs. primetime because Saturday primetime, with exception of sports programs, just stinks. For instance, the ratings for Ten Commandments was 1.7/6.

why is it "the most amusing sketch"? is the incest foot massage too SCANDALOUS????? :p

yes, the troy bolton thing was funny, but it was predicted, and although i loved it, i much preferred NOT predicting the foot-sucking scene!!!! that was totally unexpected. i was, as i'm sure all who stayed up late enough were, rolling on the floor, laughing. not even in the abbreviated way. in the full-on rolling on the floor way! :p

:D

That one was my favorite too, by far. And I love HSM and mocking it so that means something.

YAYAYAYAAA Zaccy!!! :D He did amazing, I'm so proud of him. :D

Btw Zac's dad and brother were in the audience too...you can see his dad in one of the after party pics. I'm so glad he had a lot of people there supporting him. :D

hm I wonder where his mom wassss.
Beejeezbee on April 12th, 2009 08:12 pm (UTC)
Wow. Those are sensational ratings. Many primetimes shows within the week would die for this and he's bringing these ratings on a Saturday night at 11.30pm?

If I would run SNL I would extend an open invitation to Zac to come back anytime...

The biggest single opener playing a solo market was Entertainment Film Distributors' release in the U.K. of "17 Again," a comedy with Zac Efron and Matthew Perry, which laughed all the way to $3.8 million from 407 screens.

It was #3.

This is a decent number. Obvious not HSM3 numbers but ahead of He's Just Not That Into You and slightly behind Confessions of a Shopaholic.

lol its gonna be so funny when Zac's on The Today Show tomorrow. I'm sure they'll run the clip.


I will have to watch the 4th hour to hear Kathy's reaction also.

overall really good viewer comments on the EW blog, and for the most part EW regulars and not necessarily Zac fans.

Robert Pattinson's GQ April Cover story was posted on JJ March 12. That was a Thursday. So, if Zac were on Mays', I'd think we'd see it either tonight or tomorrow.
Troll St. Trollglamour_addict on April 13th, 2009 02:52 am (UTC)
I suppose it being Sunday and Easter. GQ will update the site tomorrow.

I hope it's Zac, and y'all are not toying with my emotions.

yay! i'm so happy for him.


i think my fav sketch was the one where he's like, "get it momma!" so adorable.
Troll St. Trollglamour_addict on April 13th, 2009 03:03 am (UTC)
lol that makes me laugh.

He reminds me of Young Patrick from "Mame"/"Auntie Mame" there.



Which I know Zac was in once; I wonder if he played Patrick? hmmmm.
