Apparently 90210 doesn't resonate with people all over the world. After airing the first four episodes, Channel 10 in Australia is dumping the show because nobody was watching it. From the first episode to the most recent one aired, the audience has dropped about 30%. See, even in Australia they want more Shannen Doherty and Jennie Garth. I'm telling you right now CW that if you want to make this a huge hit, have all the kids in the show right now hit by a school bus on the way to school. Hang on, there are no school buses. OK, have them poisoned by some bad lattes in the school cafeteria or from licking envelopes, and at the funeral for all of them bring back the whole damn cast from 90210. Throw in some Melrose Place and some Dynasty women to play mothers and I guarantee you the whole damn country will watch for at least a year. After that the show would actually have to be good, but until then, people would watch for the "I've missed them factor." Hard to make money when you have foreign countries dropping your show.
