Spoiler: The Big Tease

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

Can you tell me anything new about ‘90210′? – Kristi
My colleague Brian chatted up the cast at last week’s TCA party, and he says to expect some action from the couple everyone’s been waiting to see get together: Liam and Annie. Suffice to say, Naomi is not gonna be happy about that. Now a question for you: Does this pairing necessarily eliminate Liam as the guy that turns out to be gay this season? Discuss.

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

2 08 2010
  • New York Magazine and TVGuide.com‘s recaps of the Gossip Girl TCA panel have some details and quotes that I don’t recall seeing in the live-blogs and recaps I previously posted.
  • Shannen Doherty (Brenda, Beverly Hills 90210) helped judge a competition to find the “most inspired bartender.”
  • Doherty tweeted today that, contrary to rumors, she’s not pregnant.
  • Hilarie Burton (Peyton, One Tree Hill) told Zap2it she would return to One Tree Hill  if a) it’s the final season, b) she’s asked and c) it worked with her schedule.
  • The Associated Press has a few quotes from Burton on having a baby with Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
  • Burton appeared on the PIX Morning News this morning. She makes nice mentions of Antwon Tanner (Skills, One Tree Hill) and Chad Michael Murray (Lucas, One Tree Hill).
  • James Van Der Beek (Dawson, Dawson’s Creek) tweeted that he got married yesterday. He and his now-wife, Kimberly Brook, are expecting a daughter.




BREAKING: Confirmed 22-Episode Order For One Tree Hill

30 07 2010

I have personally confirmed with a show publicist that One Tree Hill does have a 22-episode order for season eight.

Suspicions arose yesterday after The Futon Critic, a generally reliable and respected site, reported they received confirmation from CW entertainment president Dawn Ostroff after yesterday’s TCA executive session that the order had been increased from 12/13 to the full-season amount of 22.

With no other outlets reporting, and Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill) as well as the official One Tree Hill Twitter account seemingly confused by this news, I sought out confirmation (last night, actually) and received it today.

UPDATE





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

29 07 2010
  • The CW had an event today, similar to the upfront, for the TCA (Television Critics Association), a somewhat-selective organization of television journalists. CW entertainment president Dawn Ostroff spoke and took questions before separate panels for Nikita, Hellcats and Gossip Girl.
  • The Futon Critic is reporting that Ostroff confirmed One Tree Hill has been given a full-season order for the upcoming season, but, as of this moment, I am not seeing other outlets reporting that.
  • Ostroff told Star News last night that OTH could be renewed after season 8, which Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill) thinks is “fishy.” Today Ostroff said that it was too soon to discuss whether this is the final season.
  • Ostroff also said there WASN’T an alternate ending for OTH last season, in case the show wasn’t renewed. (Something I maintained all along, if you recall.)
  • Ostroff reiterated that the morning-after Nielsen ratings are not the only factor that is important to them when evaluating a show’s success (hence the renewals of Gossip Girl, 90210, etc.). TVByTheNumbers.com has an interesting piece reacting to this.
  • For more on the session with Ostroff, check out these live-blogs and recaps.
  • The Gossip Girl panel featured Ed Westwick (Chuck), Josh Schwartz (executive producer), Stephanie Savage (executive producer) and Joshua Safran (executive producer).
  • A preview of season 4 was shown and some spoilers were divulged. Taylor Momsen (Jenny) will be back (something else I’ve maintained all along), and the producers admitted that they have an idea of how the show will eventually end but said it’s a long time off.
  • For more on the Gossip Girl panel, check out these live-blogs and recaps. (Warning: spoilers included.)
  • Korbi has a spoiler-filled Q & A with Schwartz and Savage.
  • Chace Crawford (Nate, Gossip Girl) was on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night.
  • Crawford spoke with MTV about Juliet (Katie Cassidy, Gossip Girl) and GG shooting in Paris, which he did not partake in.
  • AfterElton spoke with Trevor Donovan (Teddy, 90210), Michael Steger (Navid, 90210) and Matt Lanter (Liam, 90210) individually about the possibility that one of their characters will be the one that comes out this season. Interestingly enough, they each give contradictory stories on how everyone found out about the storyline.
  • Crushable’s interview with Lanter on the same topic is a bit contradictory, too, as he says he knows which character it is, but the above interviews seem to suggest they don’t know who it is, if I’m reading this all correctly. Oh, and there’s totally Lannie spoilers in that interview.
  • AnnaLynne McCord (Naomi, 90210) spoke to Us Weekly about Kim and Khloe Kardashian’s guest appearance.
  • Jessica Stroup (Silver, 90210) performed a powerful monologue by Eve Ensler for MTV.
  • Rachel Bilson (Summer, The O.C.) will reprise her How I Met Your Mother role.
  • Joshua Jackson (Pacey, Dawson’s Creek) hilariously spoke with MTV about Pacey-Con. LOL at the Jen-Con comment. I’m sure the reunion thing, though, will end up being blown way out of proportion by the media.
