Break from news: Zac Efron on SNL in HSM4

Our Sponsors

We pause briefly from our coverage of Orlando TV News for something that follows the news: Saturday Night Live.

If you caught Saturday’s show (following WESH 2 News — see, there’s a news reference), you know the host was Zac Efron. Anyone with a "tween" in their house (yep, I have one) knows he’s one of the stars of Disney’s High School Musical franchise. So, the funniest sketch of the night was Efron starring in High School Musical 4 — where he comes back to his fictional school to set the record straight about real life.

(BTW, Orlando Sentinel TV Guy Hal Boedeker reports that SNL was the top-rated show on Saturday night, beating everything in prime time. Instead of running Jay Leno at 10 p.m. Monday-Friday this fall, maybe NBC should consider SNL for that spot. Just wonderin’.)
