    90210 better see its last season this year. If its season finale can’t even get a million viewers it better not be renewed next year. It might have been better if they had just wrapped it up this year.

  • Revenge

    Glee was HORRIBLE last night just cause some of the cast is leaving high school didnt mean that they had to win Nationals. They didnt deserve it.

  • dazzag

    both ncis show where amazing im still in shock over how they both finished and glad they both had great numbers

  • KS

    90210 is a goner next year along with Gossip Girl.

  • Chris

    90210 is looking like the next gossip girl. Correct me if i am wrong but is next season a full 22 episode order? If thats the case, id start writing next season as its last

  • WB

    Mark has lots of work to do at The CW! Dawn totally screwed up the network the same way she did UPN! Back in 2006, I wish WB-Executives or anyone else other than WB/UPN would have took operations for The CW! I’m pretty sure The CW would be doing great if WB-Executives would have taken !over! PROMOTION would be better and the feel of the CW network would be like no other! Poor 90210, I think Season 5 should be it’s last anyways.

  • hello

    Calling it now, 90210 renewed for a 11 season 6

  • Amber

    90210 was against NCIS finale, AGT and the 2 hour Glee episode.

  • WB

    I’m so anxious to see how The CW’s fall schedule will look!

  • Sara


    No, that’s GG, 90210 was renewed early for a full season five..

    The CW should announce the upcoming season as a final season, may bring back some viewers.

  • John A

    It will be fun to watch 90210 sink next yr with a full season. I used to like the show but its lost its appeal to me.

  • Bunny

    Glee and NG need each other

    No, GG still looks bad. The CW itself just looks bad so it’s hard to see anything but minor comparisons between their dreadful and dreadfully performing shows. ;) They ALL look bad, and even next to a .5 for 90210 Gossip Girl’s pathetic numbers DO look bad.

    Again, the entire network does. Their highest performing show was pulling 1.0-1.4 demos this year… numbers that had shows on the same network canceled just 2-3 years ago. When your entire average is under a 1.0 demo and your entire BRAND is about skewing young… that’s pathetic.

    CW needs to completely revamp their network. Next season looks like a step in the right direction but honestly they need to stop programming garbage. Get back good show runners like the golden age of the WB (Whedon, Abrams, etc.)

  • Bookworm

    I weep for 90210. I do hope its next season is the last.

  • Pete

    Anyone who believes 90210 deserved to be renewed over TSC is delusional.

  • Ashley

    Idiots cancelled TSC and it was doing way better than 90210

  • matthew

    NCIS and Hawaii Five-0 both and the best season finales in awhile so excited about next season for both of them and as for NCIS LA season finale was great also but not as great as the two before mentioned shows

  • Mickey 1.0

    I read somewhere 90210 was renewed with a 24 episode order.

  • Ultima

    Anyone who believes 90210 deserved to be renewed over TSC is delusional.

    People who can’t grasp that TV is a business are delusional.

    90210 makes more money (or loses less) for CBS than The Secret Cicle did. Probably by a huge margin.

  • Pete

    @ Ultima

    And you know this how exactly?

    Its more likely because 90210 is cheaper to produce/no special effects like TSC had and cheaper paid actors (cheap acting being the right word)
