When the news that The CW was developing a spinoff of Beverly Hills, 90210 was still in its infancy, we asked you which daytime stars you'd like to see on the new show. Alas, neither Van Hansis nor Kirsten Storms has made the jump to good old West Bev as of yet, but both Drew Tyler Bell and the bra-zilliant Michael Graziadei have booked air time on the teen soap. So in keeping with tradition, now that news has been broken that a possible Melrose Place update could soon turn up on our screens, which daytime stars would you like to see living it up at Amanda Woodward's motel-style, SoCal apartment complex?
Remember Josh Henderson, the guy who played Edie (Nicolette Sheridan) 's hunky nephew who stole the heart of Julie (Andrea Bowen) and knocked up her best friend Danielle (Joy Lauren) on Desperate Housewives? He's heading for the land of pink neon stretch pants and bad spiral perms, aka The CW's 90210, as Sean, the much-talked about son Naomi's mom secretly bore Annie and Dixon's dad, before putting him up for adoption. According to the new issue of TV Guide, Henderson will appear in the Nov. 11 episode. Five will get you ten Naomi will make this all about her, complete with scary facial tics.
First a Brenda vs. Kelly rematch, now Amanda vs. Alison? Every nubile young actress and brooding twentysomething stud in Hollyweird will soon be heading out for fresh head shots as The CW and CBS Paramount Network TV are in early talks to rejuvenate another series in the Beverly Hills, 90210 franchise, Melrose Place. Entertainment Weekly spoiler guru Michael Ausiello revealed an update of the wildly popular 90's sudser is being explored as we type. If this doesn't make my girl Heather Locklear start working her 12 Steps I don't know what will! As much as I loved the original series, I have to wonder, if The CW keeps updating all of our favorite shows from yesteryear, who's gonna be on the next season of Dancing With the Stars?
The Live Feed is reporting that the DVR Live+7 used by primetime TV has helped a slew of TV shows achieve marked gains in ratings. Life, Lipstick Jungle, Heroes, 90210, Grey's Anatomy, Dirty Sexy Money, Private Practice, Smallville, Prison Break, Boston Legal, Terminator and Chuck all had viewership gains of 17 - 36%.
No wonder several of these smaller shows have been picked up by their networks. What I don't understand is why the ratings for daytime soaps, which require an even larger commitment to watch, aren't calculated on Live+7? Imagine the percentage of viewership increases the soaps could have if their ratings were calculated with Live+7?
Visit The Live Feed to find out how much your favorite show's ratings increased with Live+7.
What was 90210 star Annalynne McCord thinking wearing this on the red carpet? Turns out she was performing with pirates at the Treasure Island Casino in Vegas.

Here we go again with the Primetime Spoiler Round-up. Remember to comment away with questions and requests for your favorite Primetime show to get a little Spoiler love.
Grey's Anatomy: There were a few of you asking about the new doctor. When will he be back? Dr. Major McHottie SHOULD be making a brief appearance this week and then next week Major McHottie checks in to Seattle Grace. Melissa George is also checking in as the new bisexual intern. Look for her mid-November. Sad Stuff... they are casting a young boy around 10-years-old who in an upcoming episode is knocking on death's door. This character COULD be around for a few episodes while the story plays out. Counseling session? Not Meredith, although I do love her scenes with the therapist. But this time it's Callie getting the counseling and her therapist is Dr. Sloane so we all know what that means... Callie is getting a little McSteamy lesson on how to treat a woman in bed. Hopefully they've given that little treat some much deserved screentime. McSteamy needs a good storyline STAT! Oh and I must say while I was not a fan of the flood, last week's episode was great!
