Musical

Hsm2Can’t you just feel the anticipation? As of this posting it’s about 20 minutes and counting to the East Coast preem of “High School Musical 2” on Disney Channel. As any parent of a kid in the 6-16 demo range knows, the return of Troy, Sharpay, Gabriella, Chad and the rest of the East High gang is a big freakin’ deal. I for one was begged for a “HMS” shoulder bag emblazoned with “Troy Rocks!” and Zac Efron’s smiling face this past weekend during back-to-school shopping with my 6 1/2-year-old. (Her plaintive cry of “PLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEAAAAAAAASSSSSEEEE!!” echoed through the Target on La Cienega).

Disney Channel is promising to tabulate ratings for the premiere 8 p.m. ET/PT airing of the Super Bowl of tween-dom, so check back here tomorrow for what will undoubtedly be some wildly impressive stats.
