    Thanks for the #CSINY scoop!!

  4. Jane says:

    I’m shocked that 90210 has made it to a hundred (a hundred!!) episodes. Also hearing about the new ABC Family shows makes me mourn Jane by Design even more.

  5. Rhylee says:

    Thanks for the CSINY scoop. Love the Messer Family.

  6. Jarrod says:

    What is with 90210 grabbing people Carman Electra and Denise Richards for the 100th episode? That episode is going to be cray cray.

    LEBANESE!!! I’m Lebanese :L
    i always get excited when i see something about Lebanon on TV

    • Eli says:

      Maz Jobrani is Iranian…he looks Iranian and sounds Iranian. There’s nothing even close to Lebanese about him and he does not look like Lebanese people do. This casting is a FAIL when there are tons of good Lebanese-American actors out there…

    Awe the new Lucy is cute. I love her as Emma on General Hospital. Hopefully they’ll give her some lines for CSINY as well :)

  9. jena says:

    The show Men at Work is so… blah. For one thing, it tries too hard. For another thing, it doesn’t work.

  10. Lisa says:

    Thanks for the great CSI:NY scoop! She is adorable.

  11. sandee says:

    Hopefully she can do both. Love her on GH and her repoire with Jason Thompson (Patrick) is so good.
