    Glad that Melrose is up, but the ratings still aint great… has there been any word from CW if there is even the slightest, remote chance that it may get a second season?? I really hope that it does!

    Here’s a hint, Irish Joe: Consider how much money was poured into the ad campaign for Melrose Place. Then consider how little (i.e. nothing) was poured into The Beautiful Life (a more intriguing show, BTW). Then consider that the results for both are basically the same.

    Things might’ve been different if CW had backed the Brinks truck up to Locklear’s door right off the bat. Or cast some actually noteworthy & interesting stars besides Katie (say, Alyssa Milano). Gotta learn the formula for what works in prime time soaps, cuz CW hasn’t mastered it yet.

    Not to be the bearer of bad news Irish Joe, but I’d be floored if MELROSE got a second season. 1.22 million viewers cannot sustain a series on the CW (or any network for that matter)

    I love that The Good Wife is getting such great ratings. It is such a good show and last night was fantastic.

    Should the rating for Parenthood be a concern? its a really good show I wish more people would give it a chance
