News Roundup: Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, 90210 and Dawson’s Creek

6 04 2010
  • Last night’s Gossip Girl (1.7 million viewers) stayed the same in the ratings compared to last week, though the unrounded number shows a bit of an increase.
  • NBC Los Angeles has a brief interview with Laura Harring (Elizabeth, Gossip Girl).
  • says One Tree Hill has less than a 50 percent chance of renewal.
  • I (almost) 100 percent agree with this Open Letter To One Tree Hill Fans, which points out some of the reasons it’s time we let the show go.
  • Oxygen announced a new series, Tori & Dean: Weddings, starring Tori Spelling (Donna, Beverly Hills 90210).
  • Wonderwall has an interview with Spelling that includes some BH90210-related questions.
  • This recap of last night’s Life Unexpected, which stars Kerr Smith (Jack, Dawson’s Creek), references one of my favorite DC episodes, 3.19, Stolen Kisses.

I actually kinda love that letter. It’s about time someone wrote it. HOWEVER. I do not think that the show can be wrapped up in 4 episodes. I just don’t see how they can do it. Maybe they could do just a half a season next year to wrap it all up. Also what i never considered was what the letter said about how James Lafferty could be on Life Unexpected. I think that Life Unexpected should definitely be renewed for a season 2 and that’s why i voted for it in SOS.

Yes, it is about time someone wrote something like that. And no, it doesn’t seem the show can be wrapped up in 4 episodes. But I am pretty much the only one, it seems, that doesn’t think it has to. And while I wouldn’t put much stock in the suggestion that Lafferty could be on LUX, the larger point is true: it is entirely possible the actors could be cast on other TV shows in the future. The end of OTH doesn’t necessarily mean the end of them. I didn’t vote in SOS and I don’t plan to, but if I were, my vote would go to LUX. I think it should definitely be renewed, too.

I just think that OTH needs at least 10-13 episodes to wrap things up the right way.

Great roundup Shari, unfortunately, I disagree with the open letter. Although I miss the characters of Lucas and Peyton, I feel the show is still great and hope that Mark and company get to tell more stories as I feel there could be alot more of them to tell. At the very least, I would hope for the 13 episodes and although I want a full season, I will be content with that and I’m sure they will do a great wrap up of the series.

I did vote in the SOS, and of course voted for OTH, because out of all the shows I currently watch, it is my favorite:)

I enjoyed the article on Tori Spelling too, and was happy to see the BH90210 related Q & A’s.

Shari, if you think LUX should get another season, then why not vote? I feel like that show needs all the support it can get.

Thanks, Vicki. As you probably already know, I don’t think having stories left to tell means a show should go on. And I’ll just leave it at that. 😉

Alyssa, that’s a great question. There are three main reasons: 1) Apathy. I’ve always gone back and forth between thinking one vote, one person isn’t going to make a difference and that every person makes a difference. My inability to figure out which I believe not only signals a larger problem for me personally (heh) but results in inaction for me. 2) Neutrality. While I think it’s important that I have a right to my opinion and that you guys have a right to know my opinion, I don’t think it’s appropriate for me to work against One Tree Hill, a show that I extensively cover, which is what a vote for LUX would be doing. 3) Legitimacy. #2 said, I question the legitimacy of SOS, as have many–and not only about this contest but many of Kristin’s polls/competitions. They don’t do a great job of weeding out spammers and repeat voters and the like. Some even argue that the numbers don’t actually matter and they just choose who they want to win. If I can’t trust it, I can’t do it.

All good points. I don’t usually trust polls, but SOS feels more legitiment to me. It seems like they put so much more time and energy into it. From gathering quotes from the creators to interviewing the stars to airing special segments on the E channel, I think they would be wasting a lot of time and money if the poll was rigged.

And that’s exactly what they want you to think. 😉
