// October 6th: Annalynne McCord kissing and hugging her boyfriend in Venice
I know we all worry about the ratings but compared to other CW shows, 90210 is doing quite good.
Since the CW sells ads for alot of its shows based on the W 18-34 here is how the shows are doing (and the reason 90210 and Gossip Girl always get renewed)
#1 2.0 Vampire Diaries
#2 1.8 90210
#3 1.7 Gossip Girl
#4 1.5 Secret Circle
#5 1.4 Hart of Dixie
#6 1.3 Ringer, Top Model
#7 0.9 H8R
#8 0.9 supernatural
#9 0.7 Nikita
* Based on the most recent episode aired for each show
Question: Any chance of an Ade/Liam or Ade/Dixon romance on 90210? —Washelle
Ausiello: I’d say there’s a very good chance of the latter (hint-hint, nudge-nudge). Speaking of Adrianna, I hear she may pull a Quinn Fabray and second-guess her decision to give up her baby (especially after she finds out the adoptive parents are going through a divorce).
Question: OK, so I’m a huge fan of 90210, but these last two episodes have been kind of… zzzzzzz. Anything juicy coming up? —Chris
Ausiello: Look for Annie to pull a Pretty Woman and start dating one of her “Johns.”
The nerd and the cowboy finally come face to face tonight on ’90210!’ Which guy should Naomi choose?
“Let The Games Begin” couldn’t be a more appropriate title for the Oct. 4 episode of 90210, because just as Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) prepares to dominate CU’s annual Greek Games, the men in her life — Austin (Justin Deeley) and Max (Josh Zuckerman) — will also be going head-to-head.
“Austin had no idea Naomi was involved with another guy,” Justin tells HollywoodLife.com. “Once he sees [Max], it becomes, ‘Well, I can’t lose to this guy.’”
Of course, Justin and Josh’s rivalry is anything but bitter off screen.
“[Josh is] tremendous,” Justin tells us. “He’s so terrific as an actor, and he’s so much fun to work with, and so talented. I learned a ton from him in just the short amount of time I got to work with him.”
So which guy do you have your fingers crossed for? To be honest, I’m kind of on Team Austin now — and it’s not (just) because Justin won me over with his Kentucky charm. I think he’s exactly the kind of challenge Naomi needs in a relationship.
“When Austin first met Naomi, he saw her as your typical spoiled Beverly Hills brat,” Justin says. “But as time goes on and their relationship develops, he doesn’t really know why, but there’s something about Naomi he just can’t stay away from.”
I wonder what Austin could possibly have trouble staying away from. Could it have something to do with the preview for tonight’s episode, in which he literally rips open Naomi’s dress after throwing her onto a table?
Just a hunch…
Kellie Pickler, a former finalist on the Fox singing competition, will guest star on the October 18 episode of this CW drama as Sally, the country-singing cousin of Austin, a new character played by Justin Deeley. Get your first look at Pickler on the program here, as she shakes hands with AnnaLynne McCord’s Naomi:
“Everyone was so welcoming,” Pickler told People of the shoot. “I enjoyed stepping out of my comfort zone and I’d love to do it again, but at the end of the day, I want to be on the radio.”
As viewers will find out later this season, Austin has other famous relatives, as well: Billy Ray Cyrus will soon show up as the character’s dad.
