Fact or Fiction: CMM and Burton leaving OTH?

25 02 2009

Some sources say they are.

Some say they aren’t.

And some just don’t know.

With so little information out there, I really don’t know what to make of it. I’m hesitant to believe anything that doesn’t come from the network, the actors or Mark Schwahn.

It’s hard to believe Schwahn would be willing to, in good faith, continue the show without two of its leading characters.  He spent so much time building a show around Lucas and Peyton (as a couple and in their relationships with the other characters) that it doesn’t feel like it would still be One Tree Hill without them.

OTH defied the odds when it jumped ahead several years and managed not to get the death-sentence label of “jumping the shark.”  I don’t see them having that same kind of success if CMM and Burton leave.

What do you think?  Would it still be One Tree Hill without Lucas and Peyton?  If they are leaving, would you rather the series end with season 6?

Fun Fact

25 02 2009

One Tree Hill’s seventh season renewal not only means it surpasses the length of time Dawson’s Creek filmed in Wilmington, but also that OTH now ranks as the second longest-running teen drama in history.


Brian Austin Green Un-Engaged!

24 02 2009

Better start lining up, single ladies.

Brian Austin Green (David, Beverly Hills 90210) and Megan Fox (Transformers) have called off their engagement.

Good news for us.  Not so much for him.

Maybe now he’ll get back with babymama Vanessa Marcil (Gina)?

In case you were wondering, only one of the original 90210 guys–Jason Priestley–is currently married!

No new 90210 on tonight? -CJ
Weirdly, 90210 won’t air a fresh episode for over a month. The show returns March 31st, but I have scoop to tide you over in the meantime: Remember how I told you Naomi’s shady older sister Jen will grace Beverly Hills with her presence this Spring? Well, it seems she’ll catch the eye of a certain West Bev teacher by the name of Ryan, who doesn’t at first realize what a psycho she is…

Breaking News: OTH renewed, GG spin-off gets title

24 02 2009

No need to wonder anymore if the TV gods will bless us with another season of One Tree Hill.  TV Week confirmed that The CW has in fact renewed OTH for a season 7.  No word yet on whether this will be with or without Chad Michael Murray (Lucas).

In other good teen drama news, Gossip Girl and 90210 were also renewed.

And here’s the icing on the cake:

The GG spin-off will simply be titled “Lily.”  Cute, no?

No new 90210 tonight!

24 02 2009

90210 will be on repeats until the end of March.

Tonight and Wednesday night they’re re-airing Hello, Goodbye, Amen.

You can see my reaction post here.

Spoiler: Watch with Kristin

Cedric in New York: Any scoop on the Gossip Girl spinoff?
Krysten Ritter
, who plays Lily’s big sis, Carol Rhodes, tells us “It’s set on the Sunset Strip, and I am down for whatever. I’m excited to see what they do with my hair. Like Tess McGill, Working Girl hair.” Ah, break out the Aqua Net!

Jesse in San Francisco, Calif.: Will Luke Perry finally show up on 90210?
Highly doubtful, according to Jennie Garth. At the Costume Designer Awards, we asked her when he would be on the show, and Jennie jumped right in, saying, “I don’t think he is.” Bummer.

Laetitia from Paris: Salut, Kristin, I heard that Peyton from One Tree Hill is gonna lose her baby in a car crash? She’s my favorite character. Please tell me it’s not true.
I love that your favorite character is one you haven’t even met yet! I have a soft spot for Peyton and Lucas’ spawn, too. (Or wait, did you mean Peyton is your fave?) Anyhoo, regardless, a source tells me this: “There is a car crash, but Peyton will not lose the baby because of that. She will be OK. But so far we don’t know if the baby lives or dies yet in the finale.” Ugh. Have your family-sized Kleenex box standing by, just in case!

Maria from Riverside, Calif: Gossip Girl! Please! I miss it so.
You and me both, sister. Word on the street is that Georgina will come back a totally different person. My guess? George.

Lacey in Utica, N.Y.: I’ll take 90210 scoop if you’ve got it!
Things are really going to start heating up between Liam (Matt Lanter) and Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord). Says McCord, “Things are getting a little hot and steamy. Then, as if what we’re doing is not enough, Naomi starts having wet dreams. It’s hilarious. All I’m going to say is ‘banana in a pocket.’ ” By the way, AnnaLynne also tells me Eden will be back on Nip/Tuck: “I have one more episode airing that I’ve shot so far, and then I don’t know what’s next for it, but I don’t fall off, so you never know, I could come back…The last episode I’m with Kimber and Ram. I’m pretty mean. That’s all I’m going to say.” In other news, we’ll be meeting Adrianna’s Aunt Nancy in the finale. She’s described a good egg, which makes me worry that she’ll be taking off with either Adrianna or her baby…
