News Roundup: One Tree Hill, 90210, Gossip Girl and More

5 01 2010
  • As of tomorrow at 4pm, SoapNet will begin reairing One Tree Hill’s first season.
  • MTV summed up the latest news on The Notebook musical, which Bethany Joy Galeotti (Haley, One Tree Hill) talked about in the podcast I posted yesterday.
  • Matt Barr (Ian “Psycho Derek” Banks, One Tree Hill) will appear on Friday Night Lights. Have you read my interview with him?
  • Starpulse has a brief interview with Ryan Eggold (Ryan, 90210).
  • Jessica Walter (Tabitha, 90210) voices a character in Archer, a new animated show on FX premiering next week.
  • On Sunday, SoapNet is airing This Time Around, which stars Brian Austin Green (David, Beverly Hills 90210).
  • SoapCentral has an interesting article on Vanessa Marcil (Gina, Beverly Hills 90210) possibly returning to General Hospital. The article also mentions Marcil starring in the webseries The Bannen Way, which also features Autumn Reeser (Taylor, The O.C.).
  • Jezebel has a look at the Gossip Girl comic book/graphic novel.
  • Blair (Leighton Meester, Gossip Girl) is out of the Girl on Top tournament.
  • Josh Schwartz (creator, Gossip Girl & The O.C.) is now on Twitter. Added him to the Twitter Directory.
  • Worth noting, as Zap2it did, that The Secret Life of the American Teenager, starring Shailene Woodley (Kaitlin, The O.C.), and Make It Or Break It, produced by Paul Stupin (executive producer, Dawson’s Creek), did significantly better in the ratings last night than Gossip Girl and 90210 typically do.

At 4.5 million viewers, Secret Life did WAY better than One Tree Hill. Make It Or Break It, with 2.7 million, is right around OTH’s season-high for this year.

isn’t secret life a teen drama too?… this week’s episode wasn’t good at all but the season looks really good and i’m loosing interest in both gossip girl and 90210

Part of my definition for a teen drama requires that it be aired on one of the broadcast networks, not cable. Secret Life airs on ABC Family, a cable channel, which is why it isn’t covered here.

ah ok, didn’t know… so, the diference is bigger now, cuz if secret life airs on cable, that means not everybody have the opportunity to watch, right? but everybody could watch any cw drama if they wanted to, meaning more ratings for the broadcast network. Do you understand? i’m learning english, sorry.

No sorries necessary, Fefa. Your English is fine. =)

And you are right on; the difference is bigger. Many families in America still don’t have cable, meaning they can’t watch Secret Life. Everyone who has a TV, however, can get the broadcast channels. The CW is a tiny exception, actually, as there are a few places in the country that don’t have/offer the station. But, yes, more people have the opportunity to watch The CW than they do to watch ABC Family–which makes it all the more striking that Secret Life killed Gossip Girl & 90210 (and One Tree Hill) in the ratings.

In my opinion, 90210 is the best teen drama on TV right now. Then Secret Life and then Greek!
