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

1 06 2010
  • Despite some outlets looking favorably on the network, The TV Addict gave The CW a C- for the season.
  • The CW sent me screeners for Hellcats, featuring Matt Barr (Ian “Psycho Derek” Banks, One Tree Hill) and Robbie Jones (Quentin, One Tree Hill), as well as Nikita, featuring Melinda Clarke (Julie, The O.C.). After I watch them, I will post some thoughts, like I did for Life Unexpected.
  • Encore has an interview with Mike Grubbs (Grubbs, One Tree Hill). Have you read my interview with him?
  • Starpulse has an interview with Tyler Hilton (Chris, One Tree Hill).
  • TV Fanatic gave 90210 a C for the season, making quite a few great points about the show’s flaws and what it needs to work on.
  • You know all those questions we had after the 90210 season finale? On why promised or hinted to things never actually happened? E! Online has some answers and I, for one, am pissed off. (Of course, that’s nothing new for me in regards to this show but still…)
  • Jason Priestley (Brandon, Beverly Hills 9021o) will have a recurring role on ABC’s Scoundrels, which premieres June 20. Thanks to Jethro and Gina for alerting me to the news. Not sure what this means for Call Me Fitz, if anything.
  • The Stir has an interview with Jennie Garth (Kelly, Beverly Hills 90210).
  • Zap2it has an interesting article debating whether the Gossip Girl season 2 finale or season 3 finale was better.
  • McG (executive producer, The O.C.) will produce the film The DUFF, based on a novel of the same name.

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

  • There’s been several news stories the past few days about Brian Austin Green (David, Beverly Hills 90210) supposedly tweeting that he and Megan Fox are engaged again. I haven’t posted any of them because I knew the account was fake (it’s been on my fake list in the Twitter Directory for months) but unfortunately several news organizations ran with it without bothering to check with his publicist whether the account was legit. Thanks to GossipCop, it is finally getting out there that this was just one big deception. I hope those other news orgs. are embarrassed and ashamed–and I hope the poser is as well.
  • Zap2it has a slightly different version of the Jennie Garth (Kelly, Beverly Hills 90210) quote I linked to yesterday. Yesterday’s said she was done with 90210 “for a while” whereas today’s says she’s been done for a while.
  • Thrilled for Christy-Anne at the press coverage her One Tree Hill Reunion is getting. So bummed my trip didn’t work out.
  • Everly, featuring Bethany Joy Galeotti (Haley, One Tree Hill) released new music today–b tracks. vol. 3
  • BuddyTV, TVGuide.com and Starpulse have interviews with Robert Buckley (Clay, One Tree Hill).
  • Examiner.com has an interview with Lindsey McKeon (Taylor, One Tree Hill). Have you read my interview with her?
  • TVGuideMagazine.com has what they’re calling an “exclusive” Gossip Girl spoiler but we already know about this. There’s just 1 or 2 more specific details given.
  • Philly.com has an article on Kerr Smith (Jack, Dawson’s Creek). TVGuide.com and About.com have interviews with him. (In the former, he speaks well of DC and in the latter he says another show he did–E-ring–is his favorite).
  • This review of Life Unexpected, which stars Smith, references The O.C.

  • Blair (Leighton Meester, Gossip Girl) is out of the Girl on Top tournament.
  • Josh Schwartz (creator, Gossip Girl & The O.C.) is now on Twitter. Added him to the Twitter Directory.
  • Worth noting, as Zap2it did, that The Secret Life of the American Teenager, starring Shailene Woodley (Kaitlin, The O.C.), and Make It Or Break It, produced by Paul Stupin (executive producer, Dawson’s Creek), did significantly better in the ratings last night than Gossip Girl and 90210 typically do.

  • This by far the BEST One Tree Hill article I have seen in quite a while.  It’s about time someone addressed the obvious: the show outperforms many others on The CW but rarely gets any love.  Here’s hoping this changes that from now on!
