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

31 03 2010
  • My 90210 reaction post will be delayed due to a screw up with my DVR. My apologies.
  • Last night’s 90210 (1.5 million viewers rounded up) dropped a tiny bit in the ratings compared to last week, hitting a new season- and series-low. If you recall, last week also rounded to 1.5, but the unrounded number this time is even lower (1.480 versus 1.508).
  • EW.com has an interview with Shannen Doherty (Brenda, Beverly Hills 90210) about Dancing With The Stars.
  • Doherty apparently declined to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, which all other eliminated contestants have done in the past, but she did appear on Good Morning America this morning.
  • My colleagues at Gossip Cop had the task of busting another false Doherty rumor.
  • Tiffani Amber Thiessen (Valerie, Beverly Hills 90210) had a baby shower hosted by Naomi Lowde, wife of Jason Priestley (Brandon, Beverly Hills 90210).
  • Thiessen is on the cover of the May issue of Pregnancy magazine.
  • CelebrityBabyScoop.com has an interview with Jennie Garth (Kelly, Beverly Hills 90210).
  • PEOPLE.com has a photo of Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl) in the Op campaign. There’s more on the Op site, including ones featuring Trevor Donovan (Teddy, 90210).
  • One Tree Hill is one of the top 5 shows getting the most votes so far in Kristin’s Save One Show campaign.
  • Twenty-seven percent of “media buyers” surveyed believe One Tree Hill is the veteran show most at-risk for cancellation.
  • Everly, featuring Bethany Joy Galeotti (Haley, One Tree Hill), and Enation, who have been seen and heard on One Tree Hill (and includes Galeotti’s hubby Michael!), have booked a joint concert date for late August in South Dakota. Let’s hope more are coming!
  • SoapNet has an O.C. I.Q. quiz. Unlike the One Tree Hill one, I only got a 7o percent this time! I was told: “You know your OC well enough to hang with the gang at Newport Union, but if you want to crack Harbor High’s inner circle, you might need to brush up.” Ouch.
  • JustJared has–dare I say it–a pretty good interview with Benjamin McKenzie (Ryan, The O.C.).
  • PEOPLE.com has details on the divorce settlement between James Van Der Beek (Dawson, Dawson’s Creek) and his soon-to-be ex-wife.

Spoiler: Watch With Kristin

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

Cassandra in Prescott, Ariz.: What’s going to be happening when 90210 finally returns?
Get ready for some major stalking from 90210‘s creepy drug dealer, Jasper. He’ll continue blackmailing Annie over the hit-and-run death of his uncle, but when she finally stands up to him, his lurkiness increases tenfold. And the will-they-won’t-they love story between Silver and Teddy quickly becomes a will, then a won’t-again, then back to a will…for now at least.

Michelle in Austin: Anything else on 90210?
Even though Liam and Naomi are back together, things will not be easy. In fact, they are downright uncomfortable—no conversation, awkward pauses. The only thing good between the two is the sex…and we’ll see lots of it.

Simone in Hemet, Calif.: Any scoop on Southland? I need a Ben McKenzie-Michael Cudlitz fix!
New episodes of Southland finally premiere next Tuesday, and the documentary-style drama is better than ever. In addition serving up the usual crime and grime of LAPD life, the new Southland eps are a treat for O.C. fans. Look for a second Ryan-Oliver reunion when Ben Sherman’s (Ben McKenzie) sister tries to set him up with a cute girl (Grey’s Anatomy‘s Nora Zehetner), and she arrives in the company of some bonehead 90210 types including Wade (Taylor Handley). And Amaury Nolasco (Prison Break) is fabulous as Regina King‘s temporary new partner. Start praying now that the ratings for Southland’s new season are awesome and that TNT sees fit to order another stack of episodes. This show is too good to lose.

Notes:

The Southland question mentioned Michael Cudlitz (Tony, Beverly Hills 90210) but, oddly, he wasn’t mentioned in the answer.

Also not sure what “bonehead 90210 types” is supposed to mean.

Handley also played Patrick on Dawson’s Creek.

  • Star News has an article on One Tree Hill’s success this year, noting how the 7th season means it surpassed Dawson’s Creek as Wilmington’s longest running show. It also made OTH the second longest running teen drama.
  • Jana Kramer (Alex, One Tree Hill) tweeted that she’s engaged. Her fiance, Johnathon Schaech tweeted it as well. Brett Claywell (Tim, One Tree Hill) posted well wishes to them on Facebook.
