BACK-TO-BACK-TO-BASICS


It seems that The CW has finally come to their senses. During their 2010 Upfront presentation, The Ostroff announced that 90210 and Gossip Girl would once again be sharing a home on Monday nights. Of all the different networks' switcheroos, this is one I can actually sign off on.

No longer will GG be saddled with the dead weight of the C-Dubb's nursing home drama One Tree Hill! Sorry, Melrose Place - you're as dead as Katie Cassidy is on the inside - but now the only thing we'll be comparing BevNiner to is...well...nothing! Did you see the finale?



So break out the mimosas, because TV's most glamorous, guiltiest and outrageous night is gonna be Mondays on The CW. Here's a little preview of what The Ostroff had to say about Gossip Girl's upcoming 4th season (spoiler alert!):
"Season four will open with a radiant Serena and Blair enjoying their grand and romantic Summer in Paris...until Chuck mysteriously arrives in town with a new girlfriend and a new identity. Blair swore off Chuck forever but will this changed man woo Blair into having a change of heart, or will Queen B set her sights on ruling Columbia University? And as for that baby...?"
I love that at first glance it makes it seem as though Serena and Blair are sharing a romantic Summer together. They're done with men! And is if couldn't get any soapier, I think perhaps we'll be treated to an amnesia storyline ripped straight outta The Muppets Take Manhattan. Awesome.



As for 90210, The Ostroff offered a much more vague peek into what season 3 will look like - complete with so many meaningless buzz words it makes my head spin...and my mouth drool:
"The third season welcomes the West Beverly kids to their senior year of high school. It;s the time of college acceptances and lovers' rejections, the time of prom dates and promises betrayed, the time of spring break, break-ups and make-ups - but as is always the case in Beverly Hills, it all happens in a world of sun and fun, palm trees and warm sea breezes, success and excess. From the beginning of the school year, the lives of the West Beverly Group will be shaken up in a way none of them could ever imagine. And from this new starting point, their journeys will take them to staggering new heights and terrifying new depths. We'll see the rise of a pop sensation and the fall of a group of friends, the beginning of a new love and the end of a professional dream, the creation of an unlikely family and the demise of another. And that's just the first week of school...It's now or never for the students of West Beverly, and they're not going to waste a moment of time. Expectations are high, hormones are raging, and scandals are hiding around every corner. From the brightest moments of love and happiness to the darkest hours of shame and fear, senior year at West Beverly promises to be an unforgettable journey."
Did you get all that? Basically it's going to be a fairy tale and the apocalypse...every week! With the prettiest 30-somethings around!


Honestly, this updated lineup just makes sense. 90210 and Gossip Girl have always been the East-Coast-West-Coast versions of each other, and it only makes sense to reunite them for one stellar night of OMFG television. Fall can't come soon enough!
