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.

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.
