Lead characters might get the television commercials and the headlines, but itís often the supporting characters who are the difference between a TV program being a lot of fun and stinking to high heaven.
Awkward returned to MTV last night with two back-to-back episodes, drawing us back into the dramatic world of Jenna Hamilton just in time for a good old-fashioned pregnancy scare.

If thereís one thing most of us can agree on when it comes to love, itís that itís a complex, confusing and often strange thing that can lead us down paths we never expected. The nature of a TV series allows us to watch characters pass through the many stages of a relationship over time Ė from falling in love to the sometimes bitter, sometimes beautiful end. From the big mistakes to the power of fate, here are a few things weíve learned about love from the small screen.
Recent repots that new American Idol judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey aren't getting along could be exaggerations, or perhaps the rumors are true that one of them could end up exiting the series if things can't be worked out at the judges table. At the very least, we may be in for a very tension-filled season come next year when the singing competition resumes.
With the Old Navy commercials bringing the cast of the original Beverly Hills, 90210 back together, and delivering little nods to the beloved Fox drama. And now it looks like two of the former stars of the series are set to reunite behind the scenes (and maybe on screen?) for a possible sitcom.
Decision were always a big deal on Beverly Hills, 90210. Remember when Brenda had to decide if the Spring dance was going to be the "big night"? And then there was Andrea's choice not to go to Yale. And who could forget Kelly and Brenda presenting Dylan with cookies as a symbol that he needed to make a choice between the two of them. Old Navy's latest 90210-themed commercial has arrived, and this one reminds us of another big choice that had to be made during the course of the 90's series' run.
Old Navy's known for featuring celebrities in their commercials, and a recent one to hit the air and the internet has two former Beverly Hills, 90210 cast members reuniting on screen. Watch Gabrielle Carteris let her feelings for Jason Priestley slip as the two observe the wardrobes of the students wandering the school.
Foxís 25th birthday is approaching, and the network isnít letting it pass by without a celebration. Fox announced today that they have a anniversary special in the works. While the host is pending, it does include a reunion of the stars of the beloved (by some of us) sitcom Married with Children.
In real life, graduating from high school is an exciting time, especially when the prospect of college life and independence is on the horizon. But, for a TV show based around high school kids, the jump to college is treacherous, plot-wise. Will The CWís 90210 be able to make the jump and maintain its viewership? The original series on which this current drama is based barely did.
Brian Austin Green appears to be building some momentum on the small screen and thatíll continue this season as he joins the cast of Desperate Housewives. Read on to hear his thoughts on the role and what he has to say about the new 90210.
As it is officially 9/02/10, I felt there could be no better time for me to admit that I was and am a fan of Beverly Hills, 90210. Iíve long-since outgrown soapy drama
Well, with the return of 90210, I suppose it was only a matter of time before there was some buzz about a possible remake of the Beverly Hills, 90210 spinoff, Melrose Place. From the looks of things, thereís a good chance that the MP remake might actually happen.
Without Kelly or Brenda, I care about these characters so little that even with drug busts, nudist sexagenarians, fake babies, and a drug overdose, I feel like nothing of consequence really happened in this show. Okay, the nudist thing really does lack consequence, but it was the only funny moment in the show.
Iím sure that with the new 90210 set to premiere this fall, many of us who grew up watching the original series have been thinking about the decade-long series. I was in the seventh grade when the series first premiered and I recall thinking that Brenda and Dylanís relationship was like the most important thing ever.
Luke Perry hasnít exactly disappeared off the face of the earth since Beverly Hills, 90210 wrapped up its final season.
