Forget Grey's Anatomy.

Who cares about Heroes?

17 Again Star

And does anyone even watch The Hills on MTV?

Barely, at least when compared with the monstrous ratings put up by Disney's High School Musical 2 on Friday. The movie attracted 17.24 million viewers.

This makes the premiere of this Zac Efron and company's film the single most-watched basic cable telecast in history.

Overall, these figures also mean High School Musical 2 was the most-watched program on TV since the season finale of FOX's hit drama House on May 29 drew 17.26 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research. Kids seem to love singing in the hallways!

And get excited, young ones: High School Musical 3 is in the works, as is a movie feature that will play in theaters. You'll never stop seeing Ashley Tisdale at this rate.

Meanwhile, as far as the franchise's stars are concerned, Efron and Vanessa Hudgens were united on the blue carpet at the premiere, cuddling innocentmy enough for the throngs of under-12 fans.

"He's an amazing guy," Hudgens said of her gorgeous co-star.

Zac Efron has almost every female under the age of 21 pining after him.

But the only two that seem to have a legitimate chance at winning over this young stud are his High School Musical co-stars: Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale.

For now, of course, Zac and Vanessa form one of Hollywood's most adorable couples. Indeed, Zanessa is the Brangelina of the next generation.

But don't count Ashley out. As she squares off against Hudgens on the red carpet of the High School Musical 2 premiere below, you can tell this actress - and her short dress - are trying to get Zac's attention.

Will it work? Who will Efron end up with? And, forget new Britney Spears topless photos, who looks better in the following image?

You tell us.

One is essentially a child.

The other is a star on the soap opera All My Children.

The Tis and The Hudge

So it seems appropriate that Vanessa Hudgens would square off against Leven Rambin in a face-off of fashion.

Wearing the same dress, albeit in different colors, these two beauties each look fabulous. But does the adorable girlfriend of Zac Efron outshine the woman that acts alongside daytime legend Susan Lucci on a daily basis?

Only you can decide.

It's Vanessa Hudgens. It's Leven Rambin. It's a fashion face-off!

Those that favor Ashley Tisdale over Hudgens in any High School Musical match-up probably already know which actress they think looks better. But we can all agree on the following:

Both of these young stars look better than Britney Spears in her new music video. Who ever thought we'd say that?

As new couples such as Karen McDougal and Bruce Willis get used to the celebrity gossip spotlight, a young, veteran pair have it down to a science.

And half that twosome is getting herself all sweaty over how attractive the other one looks in a recent photo spread: When asked how her boyfriend looked without his shirt on, Vanessa Hudgens had nothing but nice things to say about the latest Rolling Stone cover boy.

"I think it looks hot," the 18-year-old actress told Ryan Seacrest about the latest Zac Efron photo. "The girls like it."

But does she mind that her High School Musical co-star and love has many female admirers? "No," Hudgens told People magazine. "I mean, I like to scream along, too."

Who doesn't?!? Efron is threatening other young stars, such as Shia LaBeouf, for cutest actor in Hollywood.

Despite living by himself in California, Zac says he stays away from hotspots frequented by other stars his age. But that doesn't mean he doesn't have a good time.

"I'm the same age as some other people who are dealing with [celebrity gossip] scandals," he says. "I've got friends out here, and we do what kids our age are doing. We don't need people taking photos of us."

And while Hudgens is more effusive about her feelings for Efron, he tries to keep his love life (relatively) under wraps. You might call him the anti-Spencer Pratt in this regard.

And that's the biggest compliment we can give someone.

Zac Efron realized a few weeks ago that girls don't have cooties.

Even since then, he says the on-screen chemistry between himself and Vanessa Hudgens has been going as strong as the popularity of their show, High School Musical.

"For all of the partner things, me and Vanessa always got paired up," Efron, who is now dating his 18-year-old co-star, told reporters at a Disney Channel event in Los Angeles over the weekend.

"I was like, 'They're not trying us with other people.' For some reason we kept sticking around [for callbacks]. I don't know what it was with Vanessa, but we kind of clicked from the very beginning," People magazine reported Efron as saying.

The pair is now working the same magic off the set, threatening to unseat Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo as Hollywood's cutest couple.

Last week they got cozy at the L.A. premiere of Hairspray, in which Efron plays hunky Link Larkin. The couple watched the film together and held hands as they worked their way through the afterparty on the UCLA campus.

At the Disney Channel event, held to promote High School Musical 27, Efron revealed that he is almost as much of a fitness freak as Lindsay Lohan is a sex freak.

"I definitely like to stay active," he told People. "When I was younger, I was always outside playing sports. There's better things to do than sitting on the couch. I love hiking. If it gets me outside, if it gets me moving, then I love doing it."

Ashley Tisdale, another High School Musical alum, can vouch for Efron's health-conscious side.

"He was me and Vanessa's trainer on the first movie," Tisdale said. "It was so funny because he'd go, 'Do you really want to eat all those carbs?' And we were so scared, so we'd eat the carbs without him knowing, because he'd get on our case. It was fun."

Also fun? Efron's next project: a remake of the dance movie Footloose, in which he plays the Kevin Bacon character â€" a project he says he's honored to be involved in.

"It's iconic," he says. "It's got some amazing music. It would be an honor to make that film again and put my own flair on it. I'm really excited to get started. I can't wait."

Sounds like how we feel about Britney Spears in Playboy. You know it's coming to that.

Who cares that John Travolta is playing a woman in the new movie version of Hairspray?

The real news at Tuesday night's premiere in L.A. was that Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens were seen cuddling in public. There's little doubt this is the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie of the teen set.

People magazine was on the scene as Efron - who plays hunky Link Larkin in the film - and his High School Musical co-star arrived separately to the Mann Village Theater in Westwood, but reunited once inside and cozied up to watch the movie with the rest of the Hairspray cast, including Travolta and Michelle Pfeiffer.

Afterwards, the couple with the best nickname in Hollywood (sorry, Gyllenhaarsgaard) held hands as they navigated their way through the afterparty at the Ackerman Union on the UCLA campus.

Each Hairspray star had his or her own table. At Efron's, he and Hudgens were joined by their fellow High School Musical alum, Ashley Tisdale. But Zac barely had time to socialize as he was bombarded by fans requesting photos and autographs.

The life of a teenage hunk is far from easy. It's something Jayden James Federline has time to prepare for, at least.

Meanwhile, Hudgens and Tisdale chatted up Hairspray star Amanda Bynes, grabbed some grub and danced to the live band's rendition of "Proud Mary." Once in a while they'd check back in at Efron's table, where his mother, Starla, and Tisdale's mother, Lisa, were also seated.

Tisdale was awfully impressed by her pal's performance in the movie.

"He's hot!" she told People. "I remember when he got this role, I was like, 'That's so cool.' He reminds me of a young John Travolta."

Uh-oh. Might Ashley be making a move on Zac? Keep an eye out, Vanessa Hudgens.

Many fans of High School Musical seem to think Zac Efron is dating the wrong actress.

They see this young stud muffin starring in Got Milk ad campaigns with Ashley Tisdale and lighting up the small screen by her side and think: what a perfect match!

But these Zac zealots are overlooking how perfect the actor is for another co-star: Vanessa Hudgens. In fact, each wears a commitment/friendship ring on the right index finger, reportedly having had them personalized with one another's names.

Isn't that sweet?

Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens

Overall, life is pretty good for Hudgens, who recently signed on as the latest model for clothing brand Ecko Unlimited. She's sort of following in the footsteps of another Vanessa in this regard, as Vanessa Minnillo is the beautiful body behind Bongo.

If she continues to follow that path, Hudgens and Efron will move in together, just like Minnillo and Nick Lachey. We hope these two kids wait a bit, however. They're still very young.

And there's still another season of High School Musical to enjoy, as the next one kicks off in August.

Vanessa Hudgens Quotes

You know, we’re here to talk about the movie.

Vanessa Hudgens [as a press conference for High School Musical 3, asked about Miley Cyrus photos]

Just recently I've learned to be okay with myself without wearing makeup. I think it was a special someone telling me that I didn't need it. I started taking care of my skin and realized I didn't need as much as I thought I did.
