News Roundup: 90210 and Dawson’s Creek

9 06 2010
  • 90210’s second season DVD will be released August 24 (with a slew of special features!) and TVShowsonDVD.com has a look at the preliminary cover art.
  • AnnaLynne McCord (Naomi, 90210) is starring in the webseries Dial*. She spoke with JSYK, PopEater and TV Squad about it and a bit about 90210, with the last one being the best, in my opinion.
  • The new issue of PEOPLE features an excerpt from uncharted terriTORI, the upcoming memoir by Tori Spelling (Donna, Beverly Hills 90210). The book will be released on Tuesday. According to the description on Amazon, the book goes over Spelling “discovering her former 90210 castmates’ ‘I Hate Tori’ club.”
  • The Wrap named Lindsay Price (Janet, Beverly Hills 90210) a “show-killer,” though what they wrote isn’t entirely accurate.
  • Katie Holmes (Joey, Dawson’s Creek) will be a presenter at the Tony Awards on Sunday.




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

30 04 2010
  • SoapNet is making some significant schedule changes regarding its teen drama lineup. Beginning tomorrow, May 1, One Tree Hill will air for two additional hours on Saturdays, now going from 9am til 1pm. Beverly Hills 90210 has been pushed back to 1pm and will go til 5. Sunday remains unchanged. Then, as of Monday, May 3, The O.C. will only air at 1pm, losing its second hour. One Tree Hill will move an hour earlier, airing at 2pm and 3pm. Beverly Hills 90210 will keep the 11am and noon slots but will now also have 4pm, in addition to their current 5pm slot. That hour, which started airing the show from the beginning in November after the network took away the 6pm timeslot, will repeat the noon episode (and the 4pm slot will repeat the 11am episode). That means though we’re currently in season 4 during the 5pm hour, it will pick up with the middle of season 10, which is what’s currently airing in the morning. The individual show pages above have been updated to reflect these changes.
  • The CW has announced who will be participating in their Tweet Week and when: Robert Buckley (Clay, One Tree Hill) will tweet Monday at 8pm eastern. Josh Schwartz (executive producer, Gossip Girl) and Zuzanna Szadkowski (Dorota, Gossip Girl) will tweet Monday at 9pm eastern. Shenae Grimes (Annie, 90210), Michael Steger (Navid, 90210), Tristan Wilds (Dixon, 90210) and Trevor Donovan (Teddy, 90210) will tweet Tuesday at 8pm eastern. All of this will take place at tweet.cwtv.com.
  • Jackson Brundage (Jamie, One Tree Hill) will be a part of CURED’s charity event tomorrow in Illinois.
  • One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl and 90210 are all included in TVGuide.com’s photogallery of Must-Watch Finales.
  • TVGuide.com named Annie’s fountain scene in this week’s 90210 the “oddest reaction” in their list of Top Moments of the Week. I disagree.
  • Latina.com has a great but spoiler-filled interview with Diego Boneta (Javier, 90210).
  • Lindsay Price (Janet, Beverly Hills 90210), Hilary Duff (Olivia, Gossip Girl) and Busy Philipps (Audrey, Dawson’s Creeks) are in the “Beautiful At Every Age” section of PEOPLE’s Most Beautiful issue. Blake Lively (Serena, Gossip Girl) is in the online version but also in the “Hot List” section of the issue. Jessica Stroup (Silver, 90210), Jessica Lowndes (Adrianna, 90210) and Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl) are in the “Beautiful Jessicas” section. Michelle Williams (Jen, Dawson’s Creek) is in the “Amazing Lookalikes” section.
  • At work today, Gossip Cop and I busted a Star cover story about Katie Holmes (Joey, Dawson’s Creek).

Spoiler: Watch With Kristin

5 01 2010

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

This just in: Leighton Meester is the worst gossip giver ever!

We ran into the Gossip Girl goddess at the opening of Klutch nightclub in Miami and she seemed to spill some very big beans on what’s ahead on her CW show:

Someone is pregnant!”

After searching high and low, near and far, and in every imaginary OB/GYN office on the Upper East Side we have concluded: That mischievous little minx was talking about freaking Dorota. Yes, Dorota! You know, Blair’s hired hand? And this wouldn’t be such a letdown if we didn’t already know this info ages ago when it was revealed on the show.

Nicely played, Leighton. We’ll leave the real gossip-giving to Kristen Bell.

Ashley P. in Illinois: I am so sorry to bother you, but I keep hearing that the CW will cancel Gossip Girl. Do you know what the real deal is? I hope that the show is not getting canceled. This is my favorite show. Please let me know what the truth is.
The CW ordering another year of Gossip Girl is one of the few sure things in this world. Even with that network’s overall ratings troubles, Gossip Girl is a winner for them, both creatively and economically. Don’t worry your pretty little head about it for another minute!

Leigh in New York: I was catching up on Eastwick yesterday morning (I have a thing for Lindsay Price—I can’t describe it) and was startled when it seemed the most recent episode had skipped resolving some major cliffhangers from the previous episode. At the end of the earlier episode, all three girls were about to die, and then at the beginning of the most recent, they had no powers, were all alive and healthy, and were avoiding each other. Do you know what’s up?
OK, we checked with ABC and here’s the deal, but brace yourself, because it’s confusing: The Eastwick episode “Red, Bath & Beyond” was originally scheduled to air Dec. 23, but it was pre-empted for two episodes of Cougar Town. Then the next chapter in the story, “Magic Snow and Creepy Gene,” aired on Dec. 30, without the previous chapter “Red, Bath & Beyond” ever getting airtime on ABC. And the last episode, “Pampered and Tampered,” was originally set to air Jan. 13, but it has been replaced by Ugly Betty, which is now airing Wednesdays at 10 p.m. Sadly for you Lindsay Price fans, ABC currently does not currently have new air dates planned for the airing of either “Red, Bath & Beyond” or “Pampered and Tampered.” (Don’t they know that Eastwick won our Fall Save One Show poll?!) The two remaining eps of Eastwick may be scheduled at some point in the future, but nothing is nailed down. Sad face. Sorry, guys.

Jackie in Briarcliff Manor, N.Y.: When do all the shows come back?! Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill and Grey’s Anatomy? I can’t make it much longer without them!
All your TV-show return date questions are answered in our winter premieres calendar!

amson in New York: Do you know anything about Chuck Bass’ “mom” on Gossip Girl?
I heard it’s a trick by Jack Bass, but then, um, it might not be—or something like that. It sounds confusing and there are definitely a lot of twists and turns, so buckle up! (Especially if you’re in a car with Tripp—anyone else completely over that character? I find myself focusing on his hair gel in scenes, which can’t be a good sign.)

Victor: Who is coming back with Taylor to One Tree Hill? I saw the promo for it and it looks really good.
I’m told by a reliable source that the mystery guy she brings with her is someone’s ex-husband. Thoughts? Bets? Guesses?

Notes:

I posted last week about the faux spoiler Meester gave.

While I understand where Kristin’s confidence is coming from, I wouldn’t be surprised if The CW throws a curve ball somehow. GG is far from a ratings winner for them. What they have is buzz, both positive and negative but constant. The day that stops is the day they’ll have serious problems with the show. But there’s also only so many slots in their schedule so if Life Unexpected is a success AND they want to add a few pilots in the fall, they’re going to have issues a lot sooner. Something will have to give somewhere, just as I hinted in my Random Thought from yesterday.

Price played Janet on Beverly Hills 90210.

We already know David is the one coming back with Taylor on One Tree Hill, but he’s not Quinn’s ex-husband. They’re still married.
