16 03 2010
  • Last night’s Gossip Girl (1.7 million viewers) stayed the same in the ratings compared to last week, making that two weeks in a row with a record-low. Meanwhile, Life Unexpected had a nice increase in ratings, which The CW (rightfully) bragged about in a press release, while also spinning GG’s numbers.

12 02 2010
  • The Wrap has an article giving their renewal/cancellation predictions but the teen dramas aren’t included. (Though the article starts out with quotes from Gossip Girl executive producer Josh Schwartz giving his thoughts on being a “bubble show.” He’s talking in reference to his other show, Chuck, though.) They think Smallville will return, Life Unexpected should be given another chance and Melrose Place needs a miracle.

News Roundup: Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill and 90210

  • PEOPLE.com has a poll asking who should play the new Spider-Man and Penn Badgley (Dan, Gossip Girl) is one of the choices.
  • Taylor Momsen (Jenny, Gossip Girl) helped Victoria’s Secret launch their new fragrance.
  • MTV has a spoilish interview with Robert Buckley (Clay, One Tree Hill).
  • According to Access Hollywood, Jennie Garth (Kelly, Beverly Hills 90210) is done with 90210. There’s been pictures showing her in new episodes with Greg Vaughan (Cliff, Beverly Hills 90210; TBA, 90210), so perhaps they mean she won’t be filming any more episodes. Or perhaps they’re just wrong. We’ll see!




News Roundup: One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl, 90210 and The O.C.

27 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. 7 million viewers rounded up) and Gossip Girl ( 2.3 million viewers) both increased in the ratings compared to last week.  One Tree Hill raised quite dramatically to a season high in both total viewers and the key demographics, according to a press release.
  • The new One Tree Hill Connection podcast has an interview with Amanda Schull (Sara, One Tree Hill) and The Avett Brothers, who song “I and Love and You” was the title of last night’s episode.
  • SoapNet has a short piece on James Lafferty (Nathan, One Tree Hill) directing last night’s episode, and some photos too.
  • Here’s Mark Schwahn’s preview for next week’s OTH.
  • Star News has an article about One Tree Hill’s presence on Twitter.  Remember, you can follow me @sizzlemaker.
  • SoapNet has a poll asking which OTH couple is the strangest pairing.
  • Sherri Saum will appear on Gossip Girl.
  • This article by The Frisky really nails some of my points on the problems with Gossip Girl–and why The O.C. was so much better.
  • Both Gossip Girl and 90210 made Zap2it’s list of the worst TV theme songs of current shows.
  • Blake Lively (Serena, Gossip Girl) lost to AnnaLynne McCord (Naomi, 90210) in an Access Hollywood poll of who should be the next Bond Girl.  They both lost, though, to Eliza Dushku.
  • SoapNet also has a poll asking which girl was the best for Dylan (Luke Perry, Beverly Hills 90210).  I think you know by now that my vote will always go to Kelly (Jennie Garth, Beverly Hills 90210), as they are my all-time favorite couple.
  • They also have another poll asking which actor from The O.C. has been the most successful.
