News Roundup: 90210, Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill

30 09 2009
  • 90210 had 2.2 million viewers last night, the same as last week, which is interesting given that the show didn’t air in some markets last night.
  • Just like last season, the 7-day DVR viewing data shows 90210 had a bigger audience for its premiere than the overnight ratings indicated.
  • Apparently Shenae Grimes (Annie, 90210) recently spent some time blogging for Nylon.
  • has an article on “older actors playing young,” citing both Trevor Donovan (Teddy, 90210) and Gabrielle Cateris (Andrea, Beverly Hills 90210) as examples.  Donovan and I briefly discussed this a bit in our interview.
  • Jason Priestley (Brandon, Beverly Hills 90210) will be the star in a Canadian comedy series.
  • If you want to know more about showbizzle, which is run by Charles Rosin (executive producer, Beverly Hills 90210), check out this video interview.
  • Talking Gossip After Dark has a new podcast.
  • Totally agree with on this new Gossip Girl promo photo.
  • I hate to promote tabloids but US Weekly has a spread on Gossip Girl’s wardrobe closet.
  • Kate Voegele (Mia, One Tree Hill) has a new video diary thingie on YouTube.
  • There is a new SoGoPro podcast, featuring Hilarie Burton (Peyton, One Tree Hill).  She’s also in some new vlogs.

Random Question – It doesn’t really have anything to do with the news. BUT. How would you like the Kelly Taylor storyline resolved on 90210 2.0

Since the Harry affair isn’t happening would you:

a.) Have her reunite with Dylan off-screen. (Or onscreen if they convince Luke Perry to return)

b.) Convince Jason Priestly to return as Brandon with a K&B reunion (Although I think there was a slight remark that he has a family in Season 1?)

c.) Other

Random Question… I know, but I’m interested in your opinion.

Take care!

Brandon, thanks for the question! It’s certainly an interesting one and one very important to me.

So how would I like Kelly’s storyline resolved? You mean if she doesn’t wake up and find out that this whole “new 90210 life” has all been a dream? ‘Cause that’s what I’d really like to see!

In all seriousness, option A. I would like her to leave the show (permanently), with the premise that she and Dylan are reuniting and they will go live together off-screen.

Unfortunately, I don’t think option A–or B–will happen. Both Luke and Jason seem steadfast in their refusal to be on the show (though I suppose it is in the realm of possibility for them to change their mind). And I can’t see the show letting Jennie go unless she insists on leaving. I love her to death and hate where they’ve taken her character. I would be most pleased if she left the show, especially if it was to reunite with Dylan (they are my all-time favorite couple, see:

What would you like?
