I don't think there is a new ep until October 28 because they are retooling the show, they brought in some head writer from Gilmore Girls. And this was the last ep of the initial pilot season they shot so everything coming up will be very new based on reactions from the last 6 weeks.
Question: Can I just say that I hate 90210? It makes me want to tear my hair out. -- Anya
Ausiello: And yet you continue to watch. Why is that, Anya? While you ponder that question, I have good news to share: The show will soon start sucking less. We got our hands on the script for episode 10, the first one rewritten by Gilmore Girls scribe Rebecca Kirshner, and according to my colleague Kristen Baldwin, "It's definitely much sharper and funnier. There's a David Mamet joke in the first scene that is pure Lorelai." In another promising sign, sources confirm that one of Kirshner's fellow Gilmore producers, Gayle Abrams, will be joining her in the 90210 writers' room, effective immediately. Can Amy and Dan be far behind? (Answer: Yes they can be far behind. Very far behind.)
Question: Got any scoop on my two new favorite shows: The Mentalist and 90210? -- Sarah
Ausiello: Let's start with The Mentalist: Noel Fisher has bounced back from The Riches' cancellation with a nice guest spot on CBS' freshman smash. Airdate TBD. Over on 90210, Annie's boyfriend from back home is coming to town, and producers are only interested in auditioning actors with "ridiculously hot bodies," per a 90210 insider. Makes sense considering we first meet him as he's coming out of a pool.
