BH90210 ‘Reboot’ Premiere Scores In The Ratings; But Did You Love It … Or Hate It?

Courtesy/Fox

The ratings are in for the first installment of Fox’s BH90210 reboot, although it’s not technically a full-tilt reboot, but more of a twist on a reality-meets-scripted series.  As viewers and longtime fans of the most famous zip code witnessed, each of the actors from the original cast, taking part in the show, are playing versions of themselves. Cast members Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth are two of the shows four executive producers.

According to the numbers, Wednesday night’s premiere brought in 3.8 million viewers and a 1.5 demo rating which was by far atop the leader board for all series that aired that night.

In addition, those numbers make BH90210 the best ratings that Fox received all summer long on Wednesday nights.  It also makes it 2019’s summer season of TV fare highest rated debut and best performing series in nearly three years for a Fox series that is on during this time of year.

With the cast that includes: Jason Priestley, Brian Austin Green, Garth, Spelling, Shannen Doherty, Gabrielle Carteris, Ian Ziering, fans took to social media across the country during the broadcast in different time zones with dissenting opinions on the opener, either they were very enthusiastic about the clever way the series merged real-life with the antics of the BH902010 gang, or had no idea what they watched, and were expecting something else.

The OG BH 90210 is one of my all time favorite TV shows of all time, so I have REALLY been looking forward to this reboot! I truly didn’t know this was going to be a scripted semi-reality show, so, although I liked it, I was a bit let down, since what I was really looking forward to was a TRUE reboot of BH 90210. I was more interested in learning where the CHARACTERS lives had led them over the past 19 years.

I knew what it was and was curious as to how they were going to pull it off. After a shaky start (first :15 – :20), it started coming together and I realized how much I actually enjoyed Tori Spelling and Jenni Garth (my favorite parts of the show). I thought the ‘loosely based on’ the real lives of the actors was clever and funny and brought charm to the show – but seeing as how all those ‘loosely based’ lives started spinning off into complete fabrications by the end of it, I’m not sure how it will work going forward.

I grew up on 90210 (haven’t watched reboot). Looks interesting.

Way better concept than recent reboots. Will & Grace and the good but unfortunate dilemma with the Roseanne/Connors showed that with good writing and with the original production team a comedy reboot can work.

90210 took real-life drama applied it to an already memorable format with all the original cast on-board and made it work.

Hopefully, they can build from this strong start and create stories that are realistic and modern.

If this is what a modern-day 90210 looks like then I’m here for it.

Horrifying!!! Looks like the show received a huge quantity discount on botox and fillers….

I was prepared to not like it, but was quickly won over. Loved it! Hope it continues to do well.

Original 90210 was a guilty pleasure. The CW reboot was a big disappointment.

This one? Just more useless “reality” dragonshit that nobody needs or asked for. Watched the first episode…doubt I’ll bother with another one. Luke Perry opted out of this one even before he had the ultimate excuse not to show up. Now we know why.

Hated it. I only lasted maybe 5 minutes before I deleted it.

It used to be one of my weekly favorites, along with 7Melrose Place. I will watch one or two more, before making my final decision. I also want to see how Brenda/Shannen plays into all this.

Michael E. Knight Joins General Hospital

Suffice to say, this is one piece of casting news that made us very happy to hear! General Hospital has cast multi-Daytime Emmy winner, and beloved All My Children favorite, Michael E. Knight in a mystery role on the ABC soap.

Knight, who played Pine Valley’s Tad Martin on and off from 1982 to 2011 on ABC’s All My Children, will begin taping scenes soon when GH returns from its mid-summer production break.

As to who will Michael play? That is being kept under-wraps.  But Knight’s new GH castmate and his former AMC castmate, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) enthused on the announcement: “I am thrilled, are you kidding me? I love that guy. He’s excited, too; it’s been a while for him. It’s going to be really fun to have him on my turf. I would love to share scenes with him.”

Soap viewers last saw Knight in his role as Dr Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless back in 2015.

So who do you think Michael will play on the GH canvas?  Could he reprise Tad but in Port Charles, since ABC has the rights now to the characters from AMC and OLTL? Stay tuned.

Excited by the news of Michael to GH? Comment below.
