Not that I am defending 90210's ratings, because all season it's been down. However, it's also been up sometimes. The CW moving it for TCD was a bad move. People would either think that it followed GG and finished up last year OR that it had been put on hiatus for TCD. Though 90210 would probably not have suited TCD as a lead-in, the viewers still most likely would have watched with extras adding eyeballs because they're interested. A bad move by The CW.

H50 beat Castle! Wow! So happy for H50!
Wow that is not good for 90210! I too think that time is the kiss of death as it is now against Following and Mike and Molly!


I knew 90210 would do bad in that time slot
