Beginning Saturday, October 15, fans of The CW’s dramas – including Ringer, Hart of Dixie, The Secret Circle, The Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, Supernatural, 90210 and Nikita – will be able to catch up with them on Netflix. The same day, fans of The Vampire Chronicles, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill and Nikita will be able to marathon their way thought those shows’ past seasons – with previous seasons of Supernatural and 90210 coming available in January, 2012.
Airing up against the season finale of America’s Got Talent, RINGER and 90210 pushed The CW to rank number one for the night among adults 18-34 in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Washington D.C. and Phoenix. The CW also ranked number one among women 18-34 in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Phoenix, Tampa, Orlando and Sacramento. RINGER also scored the time period’s best women 18-49 (1.6/4) delivery in over 2 years (since 9/8/09) and best women 18-34 (1.6/4) performance in this time slot/night since 11/17/09. RINGER scored gains of +72% in total viewers, +50% in adults 18-49 (1.2/3) and +45% in women 18-49 (1.6/4), versus Life Unexpected’s debut in the same time period last fall.
Moving to a new night this Fall, 90210 was up +8% in women 18-34 (1.4/4), +13% in adults 18-49 (0.9/3) and +9% in women 18-49 (1.2/3) versus last season’s finale (when it aired Monday 8-9:00 p.m.) and on par in total viewers (1.6 million). RINGER built on the 90210 season premiere by +76% in total viewers (2.84 million vs. 1.6 million), +22% in adults 18-34 (1.1/3 vs. 0.9/3), +14% in women 18-34 (1.6/4 vs. 1.4/4), +33% in adults 18-49 (1.2/3 vs. 0.9/3) and +33% in women 18-49 (1.6/4 vs. 1.2/3).
The CW will re-air the series premiere of RINGER Friday night, 8 p.m. ET and Monday, Sept. 19 at 9 p.m. ET.
The CW Network made an early announcement of the renewal of five of their top series. Returning for the 2011 Fall television season on the CW will be The Vampire Diaries, 90210, Gossip Girl, America’s Next Top Model and the Friday night action series Supernatural.
In moving to Fridays last September, Supernatural, which stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, immediately helped make The CW more competitive on the night and dramatically contributed to year-to-year gains on Friday of 66% in adults 18-34 and 60% in viewers. Supernatural, which is currently in it’s sixth season, also made it onto not one, but two TV Guide Fan Favorite covers this season. The series, about two monster hunting, demon fighting brothers, continues to gain popularity, new fans and viewers.
During “Watch and Tweet Week” From May 3 – May 7, Fans Can Tweet with Their Favorite CW Stars and Producers While Watching Their Favorite CW Shows
To help promote their network shows, The CW Network is inviting the viewers and fans of their shows to “Watch and Tweet” with stars and executive producers from each series from Monday, May 3 through Friday, May 7.
This event will include such CW Network stars as Misha Collins who plays Castiel on Supernatural, Robert Buckley who plays Clay on One Tree Hill and Shenae Grimes who plays Annie on 90210. As an added bonus fans and viewers THE VAMPIRE DIARIES who live on the west coast can also tweet along with executive producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec on Thursday, May 6.
It’s springtime things are revving things up for everyone around the kids of 90210 as Naomi is forced to testify during her sexual harassment hearing. EclipseMagazine has some hot sneak peek artwork for S2.18 Another Another Chance airing this Tuesday April 13 at 8PM EST.
Let’s take a look at what else is in store for them.
Much to the relief of anxious fans who have been waiting nervously to hear the fate of their beloved shows, The CW has spared them a few extra gray hairs in the coming months by announcing early pickups for five of their series. Returning to the schedule for the Fall 2010 season are four dramas: The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, Gossip Girl, and 90210, along with the long-running hit reality series America’s Next Top Model.
The renewals are not entirely a surprise, as industry experts have correctly predicted these outcomes for a while now based on series performance and actors’ contracts. The CW has also gained extra brownie points and cemented viewer loyalty even further by being generous in their early announcements and sparing their viewers the agony of having to wait until the “May upfronts” where such announcements are usually made by all networks, in addition to revealing the new shows to debut in their Fall line-ups. As our previous post stated, curiously missing from the renewal list at this time is Smallville.
The CW [We’re number five, we have to try way harder!] has announced its first renewals for next season: breakout cult hit The Vampire Diaries, Josh Schwartz’s Gossip Girl, the soapy soap 90210, horror drama "Supernatural" and the network’s top reality show "America’s Next Top Model."
It remains to be seen if the network will extend the same good fortune to the lame soap Melrose Place, the over-the-hill One Tree Hill, the net’s best new series Life Unexpected or the reliable comics-based Smallville – though I wouldn’t bet against Smallville getting a tenth season.
It’s been a few weeks since I last did a 90210 Re-cap because frankly I got tired of complaining about a show that was awful and the new V momentarily caught my attention – I’ll be glad when I get home back to my Tivo. With no V on, I tuned back into the show last week and thought it was a fantastic installment, Jen finally got what was coming to her, Dixon (Tristan Wilds) and Annie (Shenae Grimes) finally got back together and are acting like Brother and Sisters again, in that one episode they fixed so many things that I complained about during the first 7 episodes. Everyone is back to being likable. We have nice guy Dixon, nice girl Annie, Naomi is still Naomi. Tonight we get the last episode before their long winter break.
Let’s dive right into the re-cap. The show opens with Silver telling Kelly about Jackie Dieing. Kelly’s response is that she doesn’t care. Annie is making time with Jasper – Beady Eyed Boy (B.E.B.). Jen hits Naomi up for $100,000 to supposedly hire a divorce lawyer. Adrianna breaks up with Navid saying she needs time along. Poor Navid, when he’s not obsessing about sleeping with Adrianna he’s the only character I currently like on this show. This is a strong opening for this week’s installment, let’s hope they can keep it up for the rest of the episode.
Another thrilling install of 90210 without preamble let’s dive into the ReCap of Episode 2.5 Environmental Hazards. This week’s Episode opens with a good pre-credit string of activities – Navid is funny as the new non-virgin guy. Silver sees Jackie at Adrianna’s AA meeting and Dixon gets busted by Sasha, Naomi gets told she can’t go to her dream school and Liam wimps out can’t play Naomi the voicemail. All of this in the first five minutes, good start to the episode
After the break Liam gets his phone taken in class by Ryan so you know at some point he’s going to find out the truth and probably for some dumb reason delete the message. The mean girls try and cheer up Naomi and convince her to fight for admission to her dream school. I’m starting feel like I’m watching last year’s Gossip Girl. Ryan catches Liam going through his desk searching for his phone and flips out. What happened to cool guy Ryan from last year? Oh right, some student accused him of inappropriate contact and he had a relationship with Kelly which is enough to turn any man crazy. So I can absolutely understand him turning into an Assclown, but really, is anyone happy in Beverly Hills?
Is it possible for a show to jump the shark 3 episodes into its 2nd season? Saying the show jumped the shark is like saying the show was great for a few seasons and tanked years later, 90210 was never great, just tolerable. But Jesus is this show DUMB. I’m 10 minutes into this week’s episode and I’m ready to put it into the dead pool. I don’t want to waste any more time on it. What’s the sin committed? The homeless guy that Annie hit at the beginning of the summer is a former West Beverly student who donates $100,000 and his nephew comes to the school to do an interview for the newspaper. He appears to know that Annie is responsible the way he keeps looking at her.
