6:13PM: True or False. The most anticipated event in the history of television commences in less than two hours!
7:20PM: T-Minus thirty-nine minutes and counting. In case you’re wondering, this TV Addict’s passing the time plowing through one of last season’s best new dramas, ELI STONE on DVD.
7:54PM: With last night’s second season premiere of GOSSIP GIRL debuting to its second best numbers ever [3.4 million viewers] it’s time to place your bets. How many eyeballs will tonight’s premiere of 90210 snag? Did I mention there’s six minutes until the premiere!
8:10PM: LOVED IT! Now for the hard part. I’ve got a mere two minute commercial break to rant and rave. So a few points if I may: Shenae Grimes, adorable and so definitely not in
Degrassi Kansas anymore! “What is that girl, like 30″ OMFG! Did Gabrielle Carteris just get mocked, awkward. The capitol of Kansas is Topeka? Who knew. And finally, I certainly hope the CW is getting some serious coinage from the producers of SPRING AWAKENING for the most ingenious product placement in the history of Television. SMALLVILLE take notes will you.
8:17PM: So Silver is Baby Erin, perhaps better known to old-school 90210 fans as Jackie and Mel’s daughter and Kelly and David’s sister. How exactly did this manage to stay secret?
8:19PM: NAT! The Peach Pit! Oh the memories…
8:21PM: Fun Fact #1: During the original series, this TV Addict used to spend his commercial breaks talking to his Grade Seven/Eight ‘BFF’ Alison H on the phone. Hilariously random or really creepy if I were to Facebook her out of the blue right now?
8:29PM: Look at her ass, you can crack an egg on it” Seriously am loving Jessica Walter. Moment of silence for ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT please.
8:30PM: Shocking, it only took thirty minutes for us to learn that not everything in 90210 is as it seems on the outside and there may be more to the vapid uberhot Naomi than meets the eye. I wonder what she’s in to?
8:36PM: How exactly does Silver get half-a-million hits on her blog? No really, I’m asking.
8:40PM: Okay seriously, SPRING AWAKENING product placement #2. BRILLIANT! Any guesses as to how many episodes it will take Annie to miraculously transform into a chorus girl into a leading lady.
8:44PM: I know this is wrong, but is not half the fun of the show imagining how jealous all of Shenae Grimes former DEGRASSI classmates must be right now watching this. I’m just sayin’
9:00PM: “He’s been asking about you!?” Was Kelly just talking to Dylan on the other line? Or Steve? Noah? Matt? Colin? I mean there are a lot of possibilities… Kelly kinda got around!
9:05PM: “I need to finish my memories before my friend Virginia does. We slept with all the same people!” Have I mentioned how much I miss Lucille Bluth?
9:12PM: Only in West Bev can two outsiders from
Minnesota Kansas make friends and enemies with virtually everyone at high school in what, two days?
9:27PM: BRENDA! BRENDA! BRENDA! Umm.. Did Kelly just say that she was on the phone with Brandon at 3AM? Does this mean that Kelly and Brandon have a kid?
9:47PM: The TV Addict’s Mom has her own take, “Crap crap crap! Commercials every 5 minutes. Lame plot. Anorexic girls. At least gossip girls is fun because it is so outrageous. This is pathetic!”
