The Top 10 TV Shows That Should Be Brought Back, Rebooted Or Just Re-Run

October 5th, 2012 3:07pm EDT
Miami Vice
TV remakes are either hit-or-miss, but with hollywood lacking many new ideas (seems like every other show is a crime drama or takes place in a hospital these days) we've thought of a few classic shows that we think would make the cut and stick around for a while -- if they're done correctly.

There are a number of old shows from the 70s and 80s that have been brought back in recent years, some with all new casts and edgier than their predecessors, and others featuring some of the original cast members. Others were revamped entirely, and some casting decisions killed a couple before they wer...

We spotted former "Melrose Place" star Heather Locklear and Jack Wagner at a Lakers game in Los Angeles earlier this week.

The 49-year-old actress may be dressing young, but she can definitely pull it off. What do you think?

AnnaLynne McCord: Short Skirt And A Long Jacket - Hot Or Not?

May 22nd, 2010 4:07pm EDT
Annalynne McCord
"90210" star Annalynne McCord arrived at a CW network event in New York City Thursday in a short light pink dress and white blazer. This is rather conservative for AnnaLynne, who usually prefers short, tight dresses.

AnnaLynne's show escaped the axe from CW, but the series will be moving to Monday nights in the fall, where it will provide a lead-in for the fourth season of "Gossip Girl."

According to the network, "The third season of '90210' welcomes the West Beverly kids to their senior year of high school...expectations are high, hormones are raging, and scandals are hiding around every...

Aly Michalka
Aly & A.J. singer Aly Michalka and "High School Musical's" Ashley Tisdale helped the CW network debut their fall lineup on Thursday. The pair will star together in a high school cheerleader drama called "Hellcats." There's no word if ageless 24-year-old Tisdale will play a high school student in this one or if they'll be giving her a more mature role though.

The show will fit into one of the vacant slots in the upcoming fall schedule after bosses at the network confirmed that the the remake of the popular 80s nighttime soap "Melrose Place" was canceled.

Hit hero drama "Smallville" will al...

Which TV Show Should Be Saved From Cancellation?

May 5th, 2010 10:51am EDT
Melrose Place
It's that time of year again. The various networks are deciding what to keep and what to throw out as they put together their 2010-11 primetime schedules.

As usual, some shows are canceled early ("Eastwick," anyone?) while others eek it out through the season, desperate for renewal ("FlashForward," "Heroes," and so on).

Network execs are looking at a new crop of freshman dramas, comedies, and reality shows, and they need to make room on their schedules. As a result, poor performing series are given the boot.

So as we say goodbye to some of our favorites that are gone for good ("24," "Lo...

October 28th, 2009 1:41pm EDT
Eastwick
The television networks are axing shows that aren't performing or haven't had a chance to perform (The Beautiful Life: TBL, Southland) and are giving full-season orders to those that are meeting expectations (Glee, FlashForward, etc.).

New Fall TV: Keep It Or Kill It

It's that time of year. You've checked out the new shows and by now you know if you love them or hate them. Networks are either ordering additional episodes of their fledgling series or quietly letting them burn off until nobody notices they are gone. And some networks stayed cautiously conservative by looking back to previous television icons and failing miserably (we are talking to you, NBC).

Check out the crop of new series and whether we think they should stay on the air or be put out of their misery. Let us know if you agree!

80s Vs. 90s: Which Decade Was The Best In Entertainment?

September 26th, 2009 10:03am EDT
Madonna
Eighties and Nineties nostalgia are running rampant in pop culture right now. Television networks and film companies are resurrecting TV shows and movies like 90210, Melrose Place, Halloween, and Transformers. This obsession with the 80s and 90s have lead to TV specials and debates about which decade is better. Both provided us with fascinating films to watch, memorable music to listen to, and new forms of entertainment that we still use today. But when it comes to entertainment, which decade was better?

Are TV Remakes A Good Idea?

September 10th, 2009 4:27pm EDT
90210
Looking at the CW's Tuesday line up, it's almost like getting a blast from the past: "90210" and "Melrose Place" on again? Is it the 90s? No, they're just two examples of the new television remakes blasting onto the screen, and they're not alone. "Eastwick," based on the "Witches of Eastwick" movie, premieres on September 23 on ABC, and "V" (premiering Nov. 3) is a remake of a canceled science fiction series. Now ABC has the rights to adapt "St. Elmo's Fire" from the popular film, and NBC is bringing back their detective drama from the 70s "The Rockford Files."

The Sensational Won Over The CW: A Look at The Network's New 2009 Fall Shows

The first thing that struck me when the creators of The Beautiful Life addressed a crowd of bloggers who just watched their episode one cutdown (a hype package full of fast cuts, pretty people, and loud music) was how much producer Karey Burke looks like Leslie Mann. She could be on this show as one of the model mentors! The second thing was that executive producer Mike Kelley, who also worked on The O.C., wasn't going to give us the truth behind Mischa Barton's troubles because he was still giddy over being called "airport guy" in paparazzi shots of her returning to New York to shoot the s...

But if there's one vestige of indulgence left, it is spying on the scandals and seductions of the Darling family of ABC's Dirty Sexy Money, which returns July 18.
