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

12 04 2010
  • One Tree Hill came in second in Kristin’s Save One Show campaign. Chuck, which is executive produced by Josh Schwartz (executive producer, Gossip Girl; The O.C.) won.
  • Even if you didn’t participate in the postcard campaign for One Tree Hill, you can still print out one of the postcards as a keepsake.
  • The first video featuring the winners of The CW’s One Tree Hill contest has been released. It’s pretty cute. I am ridiculously jealous.
  • The new One Tree Hill Connection podcast has an interview with Joe Davola (executive producer, One Tree Hill).
  • Cari Moskow (Patty, One Tree Hill) joined Twitter today after being re-inspired by our interview.
  • Chace Crawford (Nate, Gossip Girl) will no longer be starring in Footloose.
  • The 33 TV, a news station in Dallas, has a video interview with Crawford and his sister Candice.
  • CNN is taking fan questions for Crawford for their Connector Of The Day feature. Can you spot the error in what they wrote?
  • PEOPLE.com and the New York Post have interviews with Zuzanna Szadkowski (Dorota, Gossip Girl).
  • MTV has a short interview with Eric Daman (costume designer, Gossip Girl).
  • I don’t post these every week but I figured I’d share this time: 90210 had the most DVR growth, percentage wise, in the 18-49 demographic than any other network show during the week of March 22. Gossip Girl ranked fourth. (It’s noteworthy, for One Tree Hill renewal/cancellation purposes, that Melrose Place ranked second.) The CW sent out a press release with all the numbers.
  • Laura Leighton (Sophie, Beverly Hills 90210) will return to Melrose Place tomorrow night for the season finale.
  • Time Out New York Kids has an interview with Jennie Garth (Kelly, Beverly Hills 90210), which includes a (totally legitimate but late, IMO) dig at 90210.
  • The Bannen Way, which features Vanessa Marcil (Gina, Beverly Hills 90210) and Autumn Reeser (Taylor, The O.C.), won several awards at The Streamys.
  • An article on Life Unexpected, which stars Kerr Smith (Jack, Dawson’s Creek), has nice references to both DC and Beverly Hills 90210.
  • BlackBook has an interview with Smith, with a little bit of DC talk and a Gossip Girl mention.
  • Busy Philipps (Audrey, Dawson’s Creek) spoke a little about James Van Der Beek (Dawson, Dawson’s Creek) to E! Online.

Breaking: Ed Westwick and Jessica Szohr Have Broken Up

8 04 2010

A report was published in today’s New York Post that Ed Westwick (Chuck, Gossip Girl) and Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl) broke up.

The paper alleges Szohr cheated on him with one of his pals.

Through sources via work, I have confirmed that this is true.

Why is this worthy of a breaking news post on TDW?

Well, for starters, I just wrote about it on Gossip Cop. (Read it!)

Second, it’s been quite a while since we had a breakup completely within the teen drama world and this is the first of the three real-life Gossip Girl couples to split.

Third, I didn’t feel comfortable waiting until tonight’s News Roundup to share this information.

Lastly, many fans believe the divorce between Chad Michael Murray (Lucas, One Tree Hill) and Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill) after allegations that he cheated significantly impacted the storylines on One Tree Hill

While Westwick and Szohr’s characters on Gossip Girl aren’t dating, here’s hoping the show is affected minimally by this sad turn of events.

News Roundup: Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, 90210 and Dawson’s Creek

5 11 2009
  • E! Online has a short spoilish blurb on the Gossip Girl threesome.
  • PEOPLE.com has a poll asking if Gossip Girl is “going too far.”
  • MTV interviewed Lady Gaga about her upcoming Gossip Girl appearance.
  • Rolling Stone interviewed GG executive producer Stephanie Savage about Gaga’s appearance.
  • TV Overmind has an article criticizing Gossip Girl, much like yesterday’s piece from the Daily News.  Again, I’m not GG’s biggest fan–far from it–but I don’t think the picture they painted is entirely accurate.  Buddy TV has a piece, too, but it really just regurgitates the Daily News one.
  • Leighton Meester (Blair, Gossip Girl) on the cover of the December issue of Glamour UK.
  • TV Guide Magazine calls next week’s One Tree Hill a “standout episode.”
  • One Tree Hill director Mike Leone recorded a message for fans.
  • Apparently Hilarie Burton (Peyton, One Tree Hill) is one of the most nominated people in several categories of the Open Web Awards put on by the social media site Mashable.  Burton is being nominated for her work with SoGoPro.
  • Jennie Garth (Kelly, Beverly Hills 90210) wrote a piece for CNN on heart disease.  As you may or may not know, it’s an issue both she and members of her family have personally dealt with.
  • Here are all the articles I could find on last night’s Dawson’s Creek panel at the Paley Center: Zap2it, Zap2it again, New York Post, Home Media Magazine, AfterElton.  I’m a little disappointed as I expected there to be more. We’ll see what tomorrow brings.

  • Olivia Wilde (Alex, The O.C.) has joined the cast of the film The Next  Three Days.
