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

3 11 2009
  • Be sure to check out The CW’s site for all the new video content this week.
  • Last night’s One Tree Hill (2.3 million viewers) and Gossip Girl (2.0 million viewers rounded up) each had a decent drop in the ratings compared to last week.  Gossip Girl technically didn’t even cross 2 million (again, I rounded up), tying for a season-low.
  • I will be interviewing Lee Norris (Mouth, One Tree Hill) later this week.  Since I’ve already interviewed him, I figured this time I would use reader questions.  Please comment with your question by Thursday Friday morning.  I cannot promise it will be asked but I’ll do my best!
  • The new One Tree Hill Connection podcast features an interview with OTH writer Terrence Coli.
  • I love this video interview with Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill), where she adamantly states she isn’t on Twitter.  As you’ve seen in my Twitter Directory, there are tons of fake Sophias out there.  Frustrating!
  • Hilarie Burton (Peyton, One Tree Hill) recorded a message on SoGoPro.
  • If you haven’t seen Brett Claywell (Tim, One Tree Hill) on One Life to Live, Perez Hilton actually posted a clip.
  • In a Gossip Girl recap by the L.A. Times, both Andrea (Gabrielle Carteris, Beverly Hills 90210) and Joey (Katie Holmes, Dawson’s Creek) are compared to Vanessa (Jessica Szhor, Gossip Girl).
  • If you missed the short clip of the video for “Somebody to Love” by Leighton Meester (Blair, Gossip Girl), which aired during GG last night, E! Online posted it.
  • The Parents Television Council has sent a letter urging CW affiliates not to air next week’s episode, which will feature the reported threesome.  Seems a little preemptive (no pun intended) to me.  I can’t imagine the episode being vulgar enough to warrant this.  I imagine, like the gay kiss, it will be such a nothing thing and is really more about getting publicity and media attention (in which case, it worked).  But I guess we’ll have to wait and see!
  • You can get 10% off the cost of tickets for the Gossip Girl tour in New York City when you use the promo code TEENDRAMA.
  • TV Guide Magazine has a spoiler-filled interview with Jessica Stroup (Silver, 90210) about what happens with the Jackie (Ann Gillespie) storyline.  We all know how I feel about this so I figured I’d spare you guys the rant.
  • Ausiello has a lot more spoiler-filled details on the Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes, 90210) / Gia (Rumer Willis, 90210) storyline.
  • Kellan Lutz (George, 90210) and Nikki Reed (Sadie, The O.C.) are also featured in the Nov. issue of Nylon.
  • The O.C. made BlackBook’s list of Top 10 Single-Letter & Acronymical TV Shows.
  • Adam Brody (Seth, The O.C.) will star alongside Holmes in The Romantics.  Holmes will also produce.
  • The A.V. Club has a great interview with Chris Pratt (Che, The O.C.)




Before They Were Teen Drama Stars

17 08 2009

They may have been young when they first entered the teen drama world, but many of the actors had careers in the industry already.

This week I’ll go show-by-show to highlight what some of them were on before they were teen drama stars.

Teen Drama Casts Then and Now

3 08 2009

I was recently talking to xoJessxMarieox about how different Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti, One Tree Hill) looks now compared to in the first season.

The conversation got me thinking: whether the actors are 17 (like James Lafferty–Nathan–was when One Tree Hill started) or 30 (like Gabrielle Carteris–Andrea–in the first season of Beverly Hills 90210), we’ve witnessed them grow and physically mature over the course of their show.

I thought it would be fun to take a look back at the teen drama stars, then and now.  Gossip Girl and 90210 will be excluded since they’re just getting started.  I decided to do it all through YouTube–the first time I’m making my own videos!

So without further ado…


Come back tomorrow for part 2!

Spoiler: Mega Buzz

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

Please tell me the student-teacher sex storyline on Gossip Girl will be short-lived. Talk about cliché! — Charles
MICKEY:
While “hot for teacher” isn’t exactly breaking new narrative ground to begin with, here’s my thing: Rachel isn’t even that hot, and neither is the chemistry she shares with Dan Ho-Humphrey. So I’m with you, Charles, they should put this story to bed, so to speak, as soon as possible. And it looks like they’re going to — in a very surprising way. The bad news: Chuck’s hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold from the Eyes Wide Shut party turns up again like a bad penny. Emphasis on bad. And pennies.

Is it me or is the fashion on 90210 not so fashion-y? — Tara
MICKEY: On most days, my only major fashion decision goes something like: “Corduroy jacket or pants?” So take this all with a grain of salt. I think Silver has an interesting look, but Annie and Naomi dress like they got lost in Gabrielle Carteris’ wardrobe trailer. Amirite? But that’s all about to end, as there is professional help on the horizon. Wait until you see who’s going to help the ladies pick out their prom dresses. I die.
