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

10 09 2009
  • I have decided that future Trivia Nights will only be held on Mondays and Tuesdays *when the episodes are repeats.*  If there’s a new episode, there won’t be trivia.  If it’s a repeat, I’ll host trivia.  This seemed like the most fair and least-stressful way to do it.  During long hiatuses, however, such as the summer off-season, we will go back to weekly games.  I will always post about a Trivia Night the morning of, so keep your eyes peeled, and I’ll give a heads-up in advance whenever possible.
  • Check out Mark Schwahn’s preview of One Tree Hill’s season premiere.
  • Taylor Momsen (Jenny, Gossip Girl) and her band Pretty Reckless played a show in New York tonight as part of Fashion’s Night Out.
  • Much of the Gossip Girl cast attended a party yesterday to celebrate the upcoming launch of the new GG-inspired clothing line.
  • PEOPLE.com has a photo gallery of Tori Spelling (Donna, Beverly Hills 90210) and her family.
  • Candy Spelling, Tori’s mother, wrote me that she liked my interview with Randy (her son and Tori’s brother).
  • Korbi has a video interview with Ryan Eggold (Ryan, 90210).
  • Joshua Jackson (Pacey, Dawson’s Creek) is on the cover of  the new issue of Entertainment Weekly. (Coincidentally, he was also on the cover this week back in 1998–more on that tomorrow).  He says his show Fringe “has been the total opposite of my Dawson’s Creek experience.”
  • The Vampire Diaries is being described as “Twlight for the 90210 and Dawson’s Creek crowd” and an “updated Dawson’s Creek with fangs.” There’s more comparisons here.
  • I thought this was a funny observation from Obama’s press conference last night: “The reaction to Obama on the part of some of his partisan foes is now making Bush derangement syndrome look like a hot and heavy Dawson’s Creek romance.”
  • Mischa Barton (Marissa, The O.C.) has a new post on her blog–her first one since July.
  • TVGuide.com has an interview with Jeri Ryan (Charlotte, The O.C.) on her role in Leverage.




Important Trivia Night Question!

5 09 2009

For more than a month now, we’ve been having trivia night on Tuesdays at 7 central time.

As of this Tuesday, the new teen drama TV season will begin with the season 2 premiere of 90210.

I doubt anyone wants to play trivia instead of or while watching 90210.

My first instinct is to move it to another night then.  Mondays are obviously out because of One Tree Hill and Gossip Girl.  But I’m sure many of you also have must-see shows on Wednesdays and Thursdays as well.

I don’t think it’s fair to any of us to do it Friday, Saturday or Sunday.

So here are my questions:

Is there a night you’d want to have trivia?

Should it still be Tuesday nights, just before 90210 starts?

Or should trivia just be something we do in the off-season?

Please comment with your thoughts so I know how to proceed!
