90210 was a surprise hit last year pulling in huge viewing numbers for the CW. Then a couple weeks passed by and the people who wanted a 90210 stopped tuning in. Despite that Dawn Ostroff decided to bet on a relaunch of MELROSE PLACE the old “sister,” show of 90210. Every person with an IQ over 70 in Hollywood scratched their heads in disbelief. The show is a massive failure and was beaten last night by WAREHOUSE 13 on SyFy (pronounced see-fee) last night and heck, SyFy even made a point of it in a press release.
Still Dawn is still riding high on her decision to replace SMALLVILLE with THE VAMPIRE DIARIES. That show has been the largest hit ever for The CW. Still right now picking a vampire show wasn’t a tough decision. THE BEAUTIFUL LIFE and whatever the hell they’re calling that one show now about a girl who finds her birth parents, are still waiting to be judged by the public. The top show in terms of quality from the pilots last season for The Can’t Win Network was BODY POLITIC and right now we can see one bad move by Dawn and can only wait and see how the other shows work out. Throw in the wait on seeing if SMALLVILLE can be a success on Friday and we’re all left wondering if VAMPIRE DIARIES is the only thing for The CW to be happy about.
