The season premiere of 90210 and Melrose Place were last night. You probably didn't notice, because no one actually noticed. The numbers were horrendous for the two shows. 90210 was down 50% from last year's premiere and Melrose had even lower numbers than 90210. So, it didn't surprise me at all when I got a phone call this morning and on the other end was someone telling me that Melrose is going to have a tough time getting a full season order. Right now they have a 13 episode commitment and were shooting episode 8 yesterday. If the numbers don't improve they might not even get to air all 13 episodes, and 90210 isn't long for the world either.
Last night America's Got Talent was a repeat for an hour and it still had 6 times the number of viewers as 90210 or Melrose. I guess they should have just left a good thing alone.
