Just realized that the BH90210 franchise is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Wouldn’t it be nice to have 90210 premiere on 9.02.10? Well, that’s some well-wishing that I know it won’t come true hehe since it falls on a Thursday. They also missed that chance to air the second half of season 2 on 9.02.10 (February 9, 2010) which was a Tuesday

You’re totally right, James. I “celebrated” (or at least pointed out) 9/02/10 on here and Twitter in February and I’ve thought here and there about the September date. (BH90210’s actual anniversary is October 4.) But I hadn’t thought about the show premiering on 9/02/10 until I saw someone point out on Twitter yesterday, after the premiere dates were announced, that The CW really dropped the ball and passed up an awesome marketing opportunity. Starting the season on 9/9 is already super-early so 9/2 would be practically unheard of but I think it might’ve been worth it. Too bad we won’t know now.
