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

Matt in Montclair, Calif.: Is Southland really that good? Should I give it a shot on TNT?
We say yes, and so does Ben McKenzie: “People just need to watch it, and after 15 minutes, you’ll decide whether you like it or not. If you’re into a sort of grittier, darker cop show without the sheen that a lot of networks put on their shows, you’ll like it. It’s very character driven, it’s hard-hitting, there’s a lot of action, but there’s also some romance, so it’s a real show you can follow week to week.” And maybe if you start watching, TNT will take note and order up some more episodes (wink, wink, nudge, nudge).

Monica in New Orleans: Anything good coming up on Gossip Girl?
Chuck is going to visit Bart’s grave on the anniversary of his death, and when he gets there, he won’t be the only one paying his respects. Any guesses on who’ll pop up? I’m hearing that not one but two family members could be making surprising returns.

Brianna: How about something on One Tree Hill? Anything juicy?
How’s this: A source tells me Haley and Quinn’s sister Taylor is going to come back to Tree Hill.

Cian33: 90210 is so much better this year! I hope you are watching. What can you dish?
Agreed! It is way better than season one, in case any of you are missing it. I’m told there’s a sex scandal in the works: Naomi is going to accuse a teacher of sexual harassment.

Irene in Newport News, Va.: I’m loving White Collar! Any scoop?
Ever since the White Collar pilot, we’ve found that the everyday eps of this USA series have been a smidgen flimsier than we’d like, but the midseason finale on Dec. 4 is the sharp and snappy standard we’d like to see from the show. What happens? Well, Neal (Matthew Bomer) is finally confronted with a criminal nemesis worthy of his talents, Elizabeth Burke’s (Tiffani Thiessen) presence on the show starts to make sense, and there is a huge (huge!) reveal about Agent Burke (Tim McKay) that involves something pretty important from Neal’s past.

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

Any word yet on how they’re going to explain Lucas and Peyton’s sudden absence from the coming season of One Tree Hill now that the actors aren’t returning? It’s killing me! — Samantha D.
ADAM: A show rep suggests that it will involve a bit of rebooting. “Obviously, we have new stories to tell, but at the same time, this season very much feels like classic One Tree Hill.” How so? “Some characters might be in an episode for just one scene, but it’s a scene that serves the story and the serialized nature of our season.” Translation: They haven’t figured it out yet.

Is it true that Liam and Naomi break up this season on 90210? I hope not; I like them together! — Shanti
MICKEY: With all the double-crossing that went on between them, I thought they kind of deserved each other. But I have bad news for you, Shanti. My 90210 moles are rumbling about two new characters who appear to spell the end of Liomi (Naoliam? I’m bad at this). A sexy surfer hottie will spar with Liam on the beach, and Naomi will fake an interest in the environment to snare her new do-gooder, college-aged boyfriend.

What will Tiffani Thiessen do on USA’s White Collar? Is it anything like what she did on Fastlane? Or Beverly Hills, 90210? Or Saved By the Bell?  — Manny
MICKEY: Thiessen plays Elizabeth, wife to Tim DeKay’s FBI Agent Peter Stokes, and she’ll be inspired by Laura Linney’s work in HBO’s John Adams, if executive producer Jeff Eastin is to be believed. (Yes, you read that right.) Eastin asked the actress to watch Linney’s performance as the devoted wife and trusted presidential advisor. “What I loved about Abigail Adams in that show was you had someone who was incredibly supportive of her husband but was a really strong person in her own right,” Eastin says. “That was sort of the catalyst to start molding Elizabeth.” Intrigued?

I love Raising the Bar, and I was wondering if you have any scoop on the final three episodes of the season? — Caroline
ADAM: Monday’s episode will be a battle of the teen-show all-stars, and first prize is Zack Morris’ heart. Jerry’s budding relationship with Bobbi (Saved by the Bell: The New Class vet Natalia Cigliuti) hits yet another snag when he’s wooed by a gang expert played by Meredith Monroe (Dawson’s Creek‘s Andie).

***

Some notes…

What both the rep and Adam fail to mention is that the show is skipping ahead one year, which will help explain Leyton’s absence and transition to the new storylines.

Pretty sure that surfer girl ends up with Dixon, not Liam.  And isn’t Naomi pretending to be who she’s not the same thing she did with Liam?

Lastly, Natalia Cigliuti was also on Beverly Hills 90210 as Chloe.
