There’s a whole world of tween-centric shows populating the cable TV space that rarely get discussed when adults in media talk about the current golden age of TV. But Jimmy Fallon and his “Tonight Show” writers clearly plumbed those depths for Tuesday night’s “Ew!” sketch, starring guests Seth Rogen and Zac Efron.
The sketch recalled Fallon’s “Saturday Night Live” roots, with the host, Rogen and Efron all appearing in drag on the set of the fictitious Teen Nick show “Ew!”
So what are tween girls obsessed with these days, according to Fallon? Cellphone selfies, extra-large blended drinks from Starbucks and ... Gary Oldman?
“The Tonight Show” hasn’t seen its host go in drag since Carson occasionally did his Aunt Blabby character. And even though Efron definitely won for being the most attractive of the three actors in drag, Fallon’s Sara was much better looking than Carson’s old spinster.
Fallon has previously appeared in “Ew!” episodes with Will Ferrell, Channing Tatum and First Lady Michelle Obama (who didn’t have to appear in drag).
Rogen and Efron were on the show to promote their upcoming film, “Neighbors.”
