BubbleWatch: The CW's 'Melrose Place'
SHOW: "Melrose Place" (The CW)
IN ITS FAVOR: A cast of young, pretty people who will get work elsewhere in short order. And you can't say that The CW didn't want "Melrose Place" to succeed, promoting the heck out of it all fall, ordering six additional episodes for no good reason and even airing all six of those episodes.
AGAINST IT: In its last run of originals, "Melrose Place" was constantly battling to keep its overall audience over 1 million viewers. That's... not good.
OUR TOTALLY UNINFORMED GUESS: "Melrose Place" is every bit as likely to get a renewal as "Fly Girls" or "High Society" and those two shows didn't even warrant "On the Bubble" status. This one is dead.
