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 opener also honored longtime cast member Luke Perry, who played Dylan on the series, who passed away earlier this year at the age of 52.

So, did you check out the premiere of BH902010’s ‘reboot’?  Did you love it, hate it, or were somewhere in between? Let us know via the comment section below.

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… Read more »

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.

Hate the reboot! No one gives a crap about fictionalized drama of the stars’ “real” lives. We can Google if we want to know what is going on what is going on IRL. What I wanted to know is what is happening with the CHARACTERS! What a piece of writing garbage! Turned it off and did my laundry. It was a better use of time.

All My Children

Mark Consuelos on the All My Children Primetime Reboot: “I Know They’re Going to Bring Back Some Fan Favorites”

On Friday, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) was a guest on the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, where he shared his excitement and some insight into the upcoming All My Children primetime reboot, Pine Valley, in development at ABC..

As previously reported, Mark and his wife Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) are two of the executive producers on the project.

Consuelos shared on the reboot:All My Children was such a big part of my life and my wife’s life. And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited.  It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time, and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood, posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds, she got a solid response from him.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

You can watch a portion of Mark’s virtual visit on The Talk below.

Then let us know, which AMC characters do you want to see back and on the primetime series, Pine Valley?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

General Hospital

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.
