RELEVANT QUESTIONS–DON’T READ IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW!!!
Question: Could you give us more details about Blair and Chuck’s break-up on Gossip Girl? —Larissa
Ausiello:
Blame Jack Bass. It’s all his fault.

Question: Anything on Leverage? —Bill
Ausiello:
Luke Perry changes zip codes in the Feb. 3 episode to play a smarmy psychic who is more swindler than soothsayer. The team must pit con-job against con-job to expose him, especially after a cold reading leaves Parker in tears. And in the Feb. 17 season finale, Hutton and Co. try to take down a dangerous weapons dealer, all while the FBI inches closer and closer to catching them. Some unexpected friends (and enemies) will return, and others will make their exit.

Note: Perry played Dylan on Beverly Hills 90210. Leverage also stars Jeri Ryan (Charlotte, The O.C.) and Christian Kane (Nick, Dawson’s Creek).

Weekly Poll

27 01 2010

In the last Weekly Poll, 58 percent of voters said Taylor’s return lived up to the hype, with 20 percent disagreeing and another 22 percent said they needed to see the next episode first. The second poll had a tie with 41 percent saying they didn’t even know who Billy Baldwin was and 41 percent saying they needed to see him in the show before they could judge–but 17 percent already think it’s perfect casting. There was a clear majority in the last poll, where 64 percent were totally perplexed by a 90210 with no Harry, though 30 percent say they’re okay with it while 6 percent admit they’re thrilled.





News Roundup: The O.C., 90210, Gossip Girl and More

27 01 2010
  • The CW is working on two pilots: an untitled project from the creator of Gilmore Girls and Nikita, a spin-off of the series La Femme Nikita, which will be produced by McG (executive producer, The O.C.) and his company Wonderland (which also made The O.C.).
  • Matt Lanter (Liam, 90210) is featured in the new issue of VMAN magazine. Paul Wesley (Donnie, The O.C.) is also featured.
  • Diego Boneta has been cast on 90210. Beware: there’s spoilers in the article.
  • Tori Spelling (Donna, Beverly Hills 90210) and hubby Dean McDermott star in a Funny or Die video spoofing Cottonelle’s “Over vs. Under” debate. I thought it was pretty funny.
  • Came across two great Beverly Hills 90210-related sites today: CafePress merchandise and one’s girls travels to the show’s locations. Among the gems: she has an amazingly detailed looks at Dylan’s house and Casa Walsh, including some sad news about the latter.
  • Taylor Momsen (Jenny, Gossip Girl) and her band Pretty Reckless will play at the annual Bamboozle Festival in New Jersey in May.

RELEVANT QUESTIONS–DON’T READ IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW!!!

Got any more details on Madchen Amick’s role as Mac’s new love interest on CSI: NY? — Clarisse
ADAM:
As a matter of fact I do. “[She and Mac] will bump into each other, literally,” executive producer Pam Veasey tells me. “She is a hospital ER doctor, and we will visit her workplace many times.” Look for Mac’s first visit to the hospital to take place on March 10.

What crazy things will Phil do next on Modern Family? — Amy
MICKEY:
Last week Julie Bowen teased some sexytime between Claire and Phil, but she tells us there might be one obstacle: Facebook. “My husband has ex-girlfriends who get in touch with him and I have ex-boyfriends that get in touch with me, and we laugh about it. This being Modern Family though, it’s going to take a twist for the worse,” she says. That twist is the always enjoyable Judy Greer, who pops in to play Phil’s unstable ex. This reminds me of that time that I reconnected with that girl from the gym who taught me how to stretch. Oh wait, that wasn’t Facebook. Never mind!

I’m thinking about dropping 90210 from my TiVo lineup. Say something to stop me from doing so. — Alexa
MICKEY:
If you were unhappy with the mix of story lines in the fall episodes, imagine putting them all in a blender, leaving the cover off and hitting pulse a few times. Sure, some of your West Bev smoothie will spill out the top (never to be heard from again), but what’s left inside the blender will recombine familiar ingredients in new and interesting ways. The romantics in the hizzy might enjoy the unexpected pairings planned for the spring run.

I can’t believe Damages killed Tom! Any more bombshells coming? — Katelyn
ADAM:
Boy, are there! Look for two juicy reveals in the next episode, which present possible motives for Tom’s murder. The first causes Tom to take a personal interest in the Tobin case and may also lead to the second. “Ellen starts to help me out in my quest [for revenge],” Tate Donovan tells me, “and things start to develop in a complicated, interesting way. That’s all I’m going to say.”

OMG Moment of the Week





Happy Birthday Paul Johansson!

26 01 2010

Johansson (Dan, One Tree Hill; John, Beverly Hills 90210) turns 46 today!

In recent years we’ve become more used to seeing Johansson on OTH so I figured we could celebrate with one of his classic 90210 scenes.

And that episode was directed by Michael Lange!
