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

Wallace: Any word on whether One Tree Hill or Life Unexpected will get another season?
My sources are telling me it’s most likely that only one will survive, but that it looks like nothing will be announced until the upfronts in New York in May (when the networks announce all their fall schedules). I saw Dawn Ostroff at The Vampire Diaries event Saturday night and wanted to ask, but she slipped into the night all Damon-like. Boo! Oh, and a reminder on Life Unexpected: It moves to 8 p.m. tonight (Monday) on the CW. Check it out if you haven’t yet!

Deirdre: Any scoop on Gossip Girl?
Georgina has found something even bigger than Bible camp: Bleach! When we ran into her in NYC recently, she said this of her upcoming role on GG: “There’s definitely going to be some stalking. There’s gonna be a few changes to Georgina’s appearance, so you’ll have to tune in and see if you can recognize me.” When we guessed she was going blond, M.T. just said, “I don’t know,” but from the looks of this new photo we just nabbed of her, I fear she may be going Single White Female on Serena’s ass. Run for you life, “S”!

Maureen in Boston: You need to give more scoop on One Tree Hill! What’s happening coming up?
I’m hearing Haley is going to go into severe depression following her mom’s death. Sadness.

Rebecca: How about some 90210 scoop please!
Soitenly! I’m hearing that Dixon and Ivy are going to fake-date to make Liam jealous, but Dixon is going to start having some feelings for Ivy. Oh, the tangled web young love can weave!

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

Attention Upper East Siders: Hide your men and your liquor, because Georgina (Michelle Trachtenberg) herself tells us that she’s coming back to Gossip Girl—this season—and just scandalous as evah!

Michelle breaks the news in the video down below, and even gives us a hint as to what sort of meddling she’ll be doing this time. (Could it involve Chuck Bass’ father?! Oh, how that girl teases. Love.)

Frances: Anything on Chuck Bass’ mother on Gossip Girl? Please!
Well, Michelle teases that her return to Gossip Girl may have something to do with Chuck’s upcoming family drama in the video below, but I’m pretty certain she’s kidding. See for yourself in the video, including her pitch to have a Dawn Summers-Dawson Leery romance on Mercy with James Van Der Beek. Um, yes please.

Chris: Is there any hope for Dan and Serena on Gossip Girl? Any at all?
When asked about hope for Dan and Serena on Gossip Girl, my source tells me “not at the moment.” But I suppose then you’re rooting for Jenny to steal Nate away?

Jamie in Austin, Texas: You’ve been holding out on the Leverage scoop, lady!
Let go of all of your doubts about Jeri Ryan stepping in as Leverage‘s designated grifter babe while Gina Bellman is on maternity leave. Jeri’s non-nonsense character Tara doesn’t really understand Nathan’s (Timothy Hutton) free-wheeling way of doing business, but she’s willing to learn and they turn out to be a great professional pairing. Leverage returns for a winter mini-season beginning this Wednesday at 10 p.m.

I’ve already posted about Van Der Beek’s role on Mercy. Dawn Summers was Trachtenberg’s role on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Jeri Ryan played Charlotte on The O.C. You can read more about her role on Leverage here.

  • Last night’s 90210 ( 2.1 million viewers) stayed the same in the ratings compared to last week.
  • For some reason, this week (both Monday and Tuesday) The CW only had 94 percent coverage instead of 95 percent. But I’m not sure how much difference that actually makes in the ratings. I’ve been told it was 94 prior to this season so it’s possible that will be the norm again.
  • The CW sent out a press release, however, touting this week’s ratings for all 3 shows, as well as how the network did overall during the sweeps period as well for this season in general compared to last year.
  • It was comforting to read the comments on EW.com’s 90210 recap and see many other original fans with similar complaints to the Jackie-Kelly storyline as I have.
  • TV Guide Magazine has a spoiler-filled interview with Matt Lanter (Liam, 90210).

  • Michelle Trachtenberg (Georgina, Gossip Girl) is partnering with Coach on a jewelry line.
