News Roundup: One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl and 90210

13 10 2009
  • Be sure to check out The CW’s site for all the new video content this week.
  • Last night’s One Tree Hill (2.5 million viewers) and Gossip Girl (2.4 million viewers rounded up) increased its ratings significantly compared to last week.
  • There’s another Mark Schwahn preview for next week’s One Tree Hill.
  • There’s a YouTube video of Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill) on KTLA and another video of her on The Bonnie Hunt Show.
  • There’s a new One Tree Hill Connection podcast, which features an interview with India de Beaufort (Miranda).
  • I just found out Scott Holroyd (David, One Tree Hill) is married to Allison Munn (Lauren, One Tree Hill). Damn.  I should’ve asked her about that in our interview!  You can follow him on Twitter via @scottholroyd.
  • Penn Badgley (Dan, Gossip Girl) confirmed to MTV that Lady Gaga will appear on an upcoming episode.
  • MTV also has details on Badgley attending the premiere for The Stepfather, his new film. He’s also the subject of this week’s edition of their column Star Gazing.
  • has a short piece on Blake Lively (Serena, Gossip Girl) and her love for designer shoes.
  • spoke with Leighton Meester (Blair, Gossip Girl) about her new song, Somebody to Love. Meester says she can’t find love–which is an interesting thing to say if you’re dating Sebastian Stan (Carter, Gossip Girl). Unless they aren’t anymore?  She made a similar comment on the radio this morning with Ryan Seacrest.
  • Make sure you enter my Soundtrack 90210 contest!
  • The Los Angeles Times has a story on the release of the soundtrack.
  • has a story on AnnaLynne McCord (Naomi, 90210) and her involvement with Blind Project, an organization that tries to help victims of human trafficking.  I actually remember talking to AnnaLynne about this last year.  She’s very passionate about a number of issues.
  • has the first piece I’ve seen on Mekia Cox (Sasha, 90210).  I never made the connection before that she was on One Tree Hill!  Now I totally remember the episode: the season 3 ep Brave New World as Faith, Lucas’ old friend.

omg it was the same….it was driving me crazy!!!! GOOD ONE

No problem–just sorry I didn’t realize it sooner!

Wow that is strange. I guess she did seem familiar. I always thought that was one of the most random storylines on the show, she was never talked about before or after her appearance. And she really didn’t have that much of a point in the episode.

What is it about teen dramas that keep us coming back for more? I didn’t like them when I was a teen, but now I can’t stop watching!

14 10 2009

Jen, that’s a great question. I watched them before being a teen, while being a teen and now after being a teen! For me personally, I use the shows as escapism from my own life and the stories themselves keep me sucked in and addicted. Why do you think you like them now, as opposed to when you were a teen?

I was a strange kid. When I was about 10, I decided I was too old to watch cartoons, so I quit all animation.

So, I am pretty sure when I was a teen, I decided I was somehow “above” teen dramas. I was more of a Twin Peaks gal than a 90210 gal.

Other than a brief flirtation with the Animaniacs and Pinky & the Brain in college, I’ve been true to my anti-cartoon proclamation. But I love me some teen dramas. Give me the new One Tree Hill, 90210, Gossip Girl, and reruns of The O.C.!

Ha. Lucky for you, you can get info on all of those right here!

I’m back. I was reading the unofficial guide to Gossip Girl (which I’ll be giving away this Friday), and it mentioned Josh Schwartz’s desire to create believable and interesting story lines for the grown-ups as well as the kids. Maybe that multi-age drama is what lured me in at my not-so-tender age.

Ah, I’m in the midst of reading that book for one of my massive Cliffnotes posts! Schwartz definitely has that desire, as we saw with The O.C. But One Tree Hill mastered that art as well.
