But How Did Melrose Place?


The ratings are in for The CW's heavily hyped Melrose Place redo, and they're...perfectly average. The series premiere brought in 2.3 million viewers (a loss from lead-in 90210's 2.6 million), a rating that the network probably hoped the show would settle into, not debut with. Guess they should have hired D&D Advertising. [EW]

    And fired Ashelee Simpson Wentz.

    if this teaches us anything, it's that Ashlee Simpson is nobody's Shena Grimes. They should have cast Adamo Ruggiero in that role.
    I guess hindsight is 20/20.

    i'll keep watching just for the Ella character, but ashlee simpson-wentz-wentz simpson was absolutely horrible. i had to rewind one of her line readings because i couldn't tell what the hell she was implying. if she ended up face down in the pool, they'd be looking for the murderer to congratulate them.
