by Chris Harnick, posted Apr 1st 2010 1:05PM
Shannen DohertyShannen Doherty, the first celebrity given the boot on 'Dancing With the Stars,' came face-to-face with 'Dancing's' Carrie Ann Inaba on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated).

"I have to tell you, after all the seasons we've done, you're elimination was the most surprising," Inaba told Doherty and her 'Dancing' partner Mark Ballas. Inaba was so shocked, she said she text messaged somebody asking, "How did that happen?" while she was on set. Regis Philbin, always quick with a comment, informed Inaba that it happened because "the judges didn't help them!"

Philbin tried to get the 'Beverly Hills, 90210' bad girl to gossip, but she wasn't falling for it. Bravo, Shannen.

Shannen Doherty Appeared on 'DWTS' for Stricken Dad (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Mar 31st 2010 2:00PM
Shannen Doherty, who was the first dancer voted off 'Dancing With the Stars' this season, said today on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM ET on ABC) that she appeared on the dance competition as a way to please her stricken dad.

Doherty's father, who suffered a near-fatal stroke on Christmas Day, congratulated his daughter for her short-lived run on the dance show. "My dad doesn't have his speech 100 percent back yet, but the first words he learned were, 'I love you.' And, so, he was crying and he said, 'I love you. I'm proud of you, baby,'" she said.

'Dancing with the Stars' - 'Performance #1: Results' Recap

by Michael Pascua, posted Mar 31st 2010 1:25AM
Pamela Anderson channels Marilyn Monroe
(S10E03) We start the first 'Dancing with the Stars' instantly by placing a couple in the bottom two. Pamela & Damien are in the bottom two, while Buzz & Ashly are safe. Instead of our traditional recap, Len critiques the dances in a recap fashion. Nothing out of the ordinary there.

Encore - Nicole & Derek's Jive - The second time around I think I absorbed the performance better. It's still too fast for my taste, and I wasn't fond of the slight Michael Jackson side-by-side choreography. I have the feeling that getting 10s early in the season will be her kiss of death.

While the show is now an hour earlier, the format of the results show didn't change. It basically is a clip, someone's safe, musical performance, someone's safe, repeat.

Shannen Doherty Sent Home on 'DWTS' (VIDEO)

Dancing With the Stars, Shannen Doherty Sent HomeEven though Shannen Doherty was sent home this week on 'Dancing With the Stars' (Tue., 8PM ET on ABC), she seemed totally fine with it.

"I think that dancing isn't really my thing," she said after the results were announced. "I'm an actor, and it's what I love to do. I did this for my dad, and I did exactly what I wanted." Plus, with her partner Mark Ballas injured, Doherty said she wouldn't have wanted to go on without him anyway.

We know she's had a "bad girl" image throughout her career, but 'DWTS' showed a sweeter side of Doherty that maybe we haven't seen before. That's always a good thing.

'Dancing with the Stars' - 'Performance #1 Part 2' Recap

by Michael Pascua, posted Mar 30th 2010 1:30AM
The cast of dancing with the stars season 10.
(S10E02) We continue 'Dancing with the Stars' with round two and the contestants performing the Foxtrot and the Jive. The order was shuffled this week with Kate Gosselin closing the show to an amazing train wreck ending. It was well worth having to sit through some painful performances.

It was interesting to see that the dancers who got the fast Cha-Cha last week got the slow Foxtrot, while the Viennese Waltzers got the Jive. It would have been really interesting to see how much bounce Pamela Anderson would have provided in the Jive, but I'm sure she'll survive until the second time Jive shows up again.

As the show started, I've gotta say how much I love that in the opening, Nicole Scherzinger's hair does the perfect whip. Years of Pussycat Dolls training did something.

Shannen Doherty on Why She's on 'Dancing With the Stars' (VIDEO)

George Lopez, Shannen Doherty, Dancing With the Stars'Dancing With the Stars' is more than a fun reality show. It's a magic healer! Which is pretty cool, when you think about it.

Shannen Doherty
appeared on 'George Lopez' (weeknights, 11PM ET on TBS) to talk about why she's on the show. It's a negotiation tactic. She made a deal with her dad that she'd do the show (which he loves) if he promised to work hard to come back from his stroke.

Sounds like a winner to us, even if Doherty gets booted off along the way.

'Dancing with the Stars' Season Ten Odds

by Michael Pascua, posted Mar 2nd 2010 7:46PM
Evan LysacekThis season of 'Dancing with the Stars' has had some interesting choices for celebrities. Not all of the celebrities start on equal footing, some have musical backgrounds, some have physical prowess, and others have strong fan bases. Here's my odds for who will win from who has the worst to who has the best chances.

Buzz Aldrin
Claim to Fame - Walked on the moon
Professional Partner - Ashley Costa (formerly known as Ashley Del Grosso)
Professional's Best Finish - Third (Joey McIntyre, Season One)
Analysis - While I hope Buzz will last longer than a week, it seems unlikely that he can keep up with the younger competitors. The last time he was on television, during the pilot episode of 'Live for the Moment' he looked fit, but he's not a spring chicken. He will be a sentimental favorite, but clearly not the winner.
Odds of winning - 1000:1

New Cast for 'Dancing With the Stars' Revealed

by Michael Pascua, posted Mar 2nd 2010 8:00AM

Kate GosselinThe celebrity cast of 'Dancing with the Stars' Season 10 has been announced. ABC wisely trimmed the cast down from 16 to 11. Hopefully this will get rid of the unnecessary double eliminations.

On paper, this season's cast feels like the celebrities have a higher caliber. They are at least closer to B-listers than just washed-up celebrities. This balances out the reality TV stars that stretch the definition of "Star." I have come to terms with the fact that Kate Gosselin will end up on my television in one way or another with the excuse that she's doing it for her kids. The full list after the jump.

It looks like those Heathers are headed to television

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 27th 2009 2:04PM
HeathersMaybe it's because I was a teenager when it came out, but Heathers still stands as one of those few movies that I really remember and connected with. I'm kind of on the fence with this news that Fox and Sony are developing Heathers for television, though.

In the film Winona Ryder's character Veronica goes from being a "Heather," the popular clique in the school, to systematically murdering them and making their deaths look like suicides. Suddenly, suicide becomes the "in" thing. And all of this because she was tricked into doing so by the new "bad boy" in town.

Ultimately standing up to him, Veronica does the right thing in the theatrical ending, but there's lots of death, suicide attempts and darkness along the way. I'm not sure how well that translates to TV, though Buffy the Vampire Slayer had lots of death and darkness in a high school and it did okay. There's a way to do a very serious story about the emotional turmoil and cruelty of high school, but it's a tightrope that has to be walked very carefully.

TV Squad Ten: Why you should give the new 90210 a chance

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Dec 19th 2008 3:01PM
90210When a spin-off is launched, people - and I include myself in the lot - are quick to criticize. "This show sucks!" "It's not the same as the original!" "Rip off!!!" Let's face it, it's not easy for a spin-off to live in the shadow of the show that launched it. One of these series is The CW's 90210.

When Beverly Hills, 90210 premiered in October 1990, I was a 13-year-old looking for a new series that would tackle issues teenagers like me could face. As a Canadian, Degrassi Junior High had been entertaining me and providing answers to questions teenagers ask since 1987, but Degrassi's quality made me crave for more of the like. Thankfully, BH90210 was launched and I never missed an episode during its 10-year run.

When The CW announced that it would revive the series by creating a spin-off, I was all giddy inside. Could Dylan, Brenda, Kelly and company be back? Would it be set at the same high school? Would it be as good as the original? Who? How? When? What? Why? Argh!!! My expectations were getting high. Too high.

As expected, I didn't enjoy the first few episodes of the spin-off much and found a lot of flaws in it. However, out of nostalgia, I stuck with the series and started to find reasons why people should give 90210 a chance. Let's see if you agree with my reasons.

90210: Make your predictions on who Sean really is! - VIDEO

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Nov 20th 2008 7:02PM
90210If you are like me, you started watching The CW's 90210 out of curiosity and nostalgia but ended up not being able to miss an episode because you wanted to know how evil Naomi could be. You wanted to know what happened to the old Beverly Hills, 90210 gang, thanks to Jennie Garth and Shannen Doherty guesting on the spin off. And, let's admit it, you also wanted your weekly Rob Estes fix!

Now a regular 90210 viewer, I got interested in the Sean storyline. Sean is the son Harry didn't know he had and who was given up for adoption nearly 22 years ago by Tracy. Was "Sean" someone that was already on the show but under another name? (Early this season, people speculated that Ryan would turn out to be Harry's son.) If not, would the PI hired by Tracy find Sean? Who raised Sean all these years? Who had he become? All questions that were answered in this week's episode.

However, the ending of last Tuesday's episode raised a lot of new questions, the main one being: Is Sean, played by Josh Henderson, really Sean?

Doherty returns to her favorite zip code

by Kona Gallagher, posted Oct 14th 2008 2:27PM
shannen doherty Despite my best efforts, I'll admit it: 90210 has sucked me in. I'm not proud of it, but CW just has a way of doing that to me. 90210 isn't a great show: the acting is so-so and the plots are completely predictable . Nevertheless, every week I find myself inexplicably drawn to the goings on at West Beverly High. Apparently it's not just the audience who's getting sucked in: the actors are as well. Despite sounding like she wasn't interested in appearing beyond her initial four-episode run, Shannen Doherty is returning to 90210.

Doherty has signed up for two episodes of the CW series with the possibility for more. Doherty has been joined on the 90210 set by her costar on the original 90210, Jennie Garth. Both of their characters left town in a recent episode, but Garth has always planned on coming back. After all, her character, Kelly Taylor, is actually employed at West Beverly, while Doherty's Brenda Walsh seems to have come back solely to react to Kelly's storylines and babysit her son.

No Tori Spelling for the new 90210?

by Kona Gallagher, posted Aug 11th 2008 5:20PM
tori spellingThe CW's new version of 90210 isn't premiering until next month, but there's already behind-the-scenes drama. The new series, which is said to basically be the CW's last chance of survival, has been a hot topic since it was announced back in March. Soon after news of the spinoff broke, came the chatter of original cast members coming back to Beverly Hills High. However, one previously confirmed cast member may not be making it back for the reunion. Tori Spelling is said to have dropped out of the production.

Spelling was originally slated to reprise her role as Donna Martin (who is now a boutique owner) in the pilot but dropped out, ostensibly because she was giving birth to her second child. Now, despite publicly saying that she would probably appear later in the season, Spelling looks to be completely out. According to sources, it's not diaper duty that's keeping her away, it's cold hard cash.
