... if early ratings are any indication, there are plenty of fans—some nostalgic, some too young to know that 90210 had a hipper-than-though predecessor—who will be along for the ride.
Nearly 12.7 million viewers caught one -- or both -- airings of the series premiere a few weeks ago, and 90210's Sept. 2 debut became the CW's highest-rated premiere ever among women ages 18 to 34.
I watched the first four episodes of this show hoping to see a trainwreck of epic proportions, but it's a bland teen drama distinguished primarily by its disturbingly thin cast members. Actresses Shenae Grimes and Jessica Stroup weigh less than 200 pounds combined. The show tries to keep nostalgic old people around by rationing out occasional scenes of Jennie Garth. For four weeks, characters awkwardly referred to Kelly Taylor's baby daddy only as "him," leaving viewers guessing whether he was Brandon, Dylan, Steve or my personal choice, Nat the elderly proprietor of the Peach Pit.
