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

16 06 2010
  • Zap2it has an interesting look at the CW’s Emmy chances. Emmys aside, I strongly agree with their assessment of One Tree Hill this past season.
  • Austin Nichols (Julian, One Tree Hill) is now on Twitter. Added him to the Twitter Directory.
  • For the season overall, Gossip Girl and 90210’s total audience rating increased by 28 percent when you added in DVR viewing.
  • Chace Crawford (Nate, Gossip Girl) has been cast in Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding.
  • Digital Spy has an interesting video interview with Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl).
  • Szohr and Trevor Donovan (Teddy, 90210) appear in another round of Op ads.
  • Kellan Lutz (George, 90210) is featured on PEOPLE’s 50 Most Amazing Bodies list. The full list is in the new issue, which I haven’t see yet so I’m not sure if other teen drama stars are on it.
  • Brian Austin Green (David, Beverly Hills 90210) and Megan Fox are engaged, her rep confirmed to Gossip Cop.
  • SoapNet has a new quiz called Which O.C. Lady Are You? I got Taylor Townsend and was told, “High-strung doesn’t even begin to describe you. Brainy, passionate, focused — there’s nothing you do that you don’t dedicate at least 100 percent to. But as accomplished as this may make you, remember to let loose every once in awhile. Life can’t always be planned out.”
  • Gossip Cop and I busted an In Touch story about Tom Cruise wanting Katie Holmes (Joey, Dawson’s Creek) to get Botox.

  • 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.

  • Last night’s 90210 (1.5 million viewers) dropped quite a bit in the ratings compared to last week, hitting a new season- and series-low. If you recall, two weeks ago was a season/series-low of 1.7 and now the show has sunk even lower.
  • Love TVGuideMagazine.com’s recap/pop quiz about last night’s 90210. It’s quite funny and quite accurate, IMO.
  • About.com has an interview with Tristan Wilds (Dixon, 90210).
  • The Wild Girl, starring Brian Austin Green (David, Beverly Hills 90210) will premiere on the Hallmark Channel April 24. They also reiterate that Shannen Doherty (Brenda, Beverly Hills 90210) will be in one of their movies later this year.
  • At work today, Gossip Cop and I busted a story about Doherty supposedly feuding with her Dancing With The Stars co-star Kate Gosselin.
  • Douglas Emerson (Scott, Beverly Hills 90210) is included in TVGuide.com’s photogallery of ’90s Stars We Want Back on TV.
  • Trevor Donovan (Teddy, 90210) and Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl) are part of the new Op campaign. They previously featured AnnaLynne McCord (Naomi, 90210) and Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill).
  • The Austin Post-Bulletin has a surprisingly well-written piece by a male teenager explaining his love of Gossip Girl.
  • The Jewish Journal has an interesting feature on Bryan Greenberg (Jake, One Tree Hill).
  • Melinda Clarke (Julie, The O.C.) makes her first appearance on The Vampire Diaries tomorrow night.
