We aren't dreading 'The Vampire Diaries,' 'Flash Forward' and 'Melrose Place,' but...
The CW's 'Melrose Place'
Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. on The CW
From What We've Seen: Remember all of those people who were really excited about the idea of a "90210" reboot on The CW? Yeah. We know it's hard now. But they used to be out there. Some of them even tuned in for the premiere. By the end of the season, "90210" was averaging 2-million-ish viewers per week. So how much more enthusiasm is there really going to be for a new "Melrose Place," especially one which, unlike the original, isn't being spun off from a hit show? And this cast is certainly pretty, but are any of the actors actually interesting? And you can't necessarily tell from the teaser, but there's apparently a mystery aspect to the first season, making it like "Harper's Island" or the last run of "The L Word." But other than the "Melrose Place" name or the absence of supernatural elements, what makes "Melrose Place" "Melrose Place" and what makes it different from every other chronicle of beautiful young people on The CW's schedule? Guess we'll have to wait and see.
