Is Melrose Place Doomed?

by at . Comments

When asked which struggling series readers would save and assure of another season, Melrose Place got only 10% of the vote. That's not a good sign.

Neither is this: Asked by E! News about the prospects of a second season for the rebooted show, CW President Dawn Ostroff replied:

"We hope Melrose Place picks up steam. We're gonna air all the episodes in a row. We've made the show a little bit lighter, a little happier, a little brighter, and I think we've made some good creative changes. We're going to see how the audience responds."

Translation: Upcoming pilots can likely start peppering Katie Cassidy with casting requests in the near future.

Good news? Melrose Place is axing these lame characters. Bad news? It may not remain on the air long enough to matter.

You can't be serious? Are you not aware of how terrible Ashlee Simpson-Wentz' acting is? I think being a 'remake' its crucial to have some of the original cast to join in, but I don't think they should become the focal points of the entire show. It's about the new tenants! That said, save Melrose Place by recording American Idol/Lost and watch Melrose Place LIVE! These last few episodes will determine if the show gets renewed for a second season.

Heather Locklear is dragging the show down; I'd take more of Ashley Simpson.

Heather Locklear has not been given a fair chance to save this show - come on guys - work with us! Give it another full season filled with Heather Locklear (and some great new story lines & more alumni) and then make a decision!

I'm more of the opposite. Get rid of the oldies and go with more of the newbies.

MELROSE PLACE WAS A GREAT SHOW. THE SCENES FEATURING THOMAS CALABRO AND HEATHER LOCKLEAR ARE STILL GREAT. SEEMS TO ME THE PROBLEM WITH THE SHOW IS THE REST OF THE CAST AND THEIR STORY LINES. IT SEEMS VERY CHILDISH AND NO CLIFFHANGERS FROM WEEK TO WEEK. SO IN MY HUMBLE OPINION WRITE OUT THE CHILDREN AND BRING BACK MORE OF THE OLD CAST OR NEW FOLKS FOR HEATHER AND THOMAS TO MESS WITH.THEY BOTH NEED MUCH MORE AIRTIME TO DO THE DASTARDLY SELF CENTERED THINGS THEY DO BEST. FORGET ABOUT THE JONAH, RILEY STORY LINE IT REMINDS ME OF A HIGH SCHOOL ROMANCE SHOW. SAVE MELROSE PLACE AND BRING BACK ITS EXCITING PLOT LINES.
