It looks like the CW is readying a move back to Los Angeles. The network is nearing a deal to buy the upcoming Canadian soap The L.A. Complex , Deadline reports. The series follows the lives of several twentysomethings who live in the same Los Angeles apartment complex and try to make it in Hollywood. The series, which will premiere on the Canadian music channel MuchMusic next week but will also air on Canadian sibling network CTV, sounds an... http://www.tvguide.com/News/CW-LA-Complex-Canada-1041283.aspx?rss=breakingnews
When considering the future of some shows on Fox and The CW , in the case of the former, there are only a couple of programs on the fence. Fox, overall, has had a strong year highlighted by the success of ' Glee ,' which trumps nearly any disappointment execs might have over already cancelled shows like ' Sons of Tucson ' or ' Past Life .' On the other hand, the CW has a few hours teetering on the brink amid some solid, if not spectacular, already renewed shows like 'Vampire Diaries' and ' Supernatural .' To check the threat assessment for the Fox and CW programs on the bubble, read on: Fox 1. ' Human Target ' The fact that ' 24 ' will not be coming back for a ninth year makes it likely that 'Human Target' will. Fox has something good with this show and given how they cultivated ' Fringe ' after one season, it's logical that 'Human Target' will get the same opportunity. Bob made a good argument for why it should be back. Then there's this comment from Fox president Kevin Reilly, that this is a show he'd "like to bring back next year." If he feels that way, it's probably going to happen. 2. 'Lie To Me' In the same interview, Reilly told The Hollywood Reporter, "I already see that being a player next fall." That sounds like a major 'yes' vote to me. 'Lie to Me' also has fresh episodes to air between now and the fall, so it could pick up momentum -- and viewers -- before a relaunch in the new season. At the very least, 'Lie to Me' should get a mid-season nod. To Read More Click here .
Glee returned from a long hiatus with the most-watched and highest-rated episode in the series' history. Glee drew 13.6 million viewers, retaining 78 percent of American Idol's audience (20.2 million viewers), according to Nielsen overnight estimates. The show also claimed its highest-ever rating among 18-to-49-year-olds and the highest Nielsen rating of any scripted freshman show this season, according to Fox. Additionally, the episode improved 44 percent over the post-Idol-finale preview last May. NBC placed a distant second in the demo behind Fox for the night, as The Biggest Loser (8.3 million viewers) improved 10 percent over last week in the demo. Parenthood (6.4 million viewers) remained strong against the encroaching Glee, dipping only slightly in the demo from the previous week. Nipping at NBC's heels was ABC. The Dancing with the Stars result show (13.4 million viewers) improved ever so slightly week-to-week, while Lost (9.5 million viewers) and V (5.9 million viewers) both slid down a notch. CBS placed fourth for the night with repeats of NCIS (10.8 million viewers), NCIS: Los Angeles (10.3 million viewers) and The Good Wife (7.9 million viewers). For the CW, 90210 pulled in 1.5 million viewers and Melrose Place's season (and perhaps series) finale drew 1.1 million viewers. Source Here
* Glee (9:28/8:28c Fox) Sectionals was struggle enough, but that was four months ago; now it's on to Regionals and a likely season-finale showdown with "the evil empire of the show-choir world," Vocal Adrenaline. Tonight, you'll meet V.A.'s star, Jesse St. James (Jonathan Groff, who costarred with Lea Michele in Broadway's "Spring Awakening"). So does Rachel, and they hit it off. But is he playing her? Meanwhile, Sue's back from Boca and ready to rumble. Numbers feature the words "hello" (the Beatles' "Hello, Goodbye") and "hell" (AC/DC's "Highway to Hell"). Idina Menzel plays Vocal Adrenaline's coach. * Dancing with the Stars (8/7c ABC) For the first time, the judges gave the contestant two scores last night - one based on the technical aspect and one based on the performance aspect of each dance. Of course, fans have their own criteria for voting, and we won't know who's going home tonight until those all-important fan votes are factored in. So far this season, each week has given us fresh faces in the bottom two, and that trend may continue. * Lost (9/8c ABC) Now that the uniquely talented Desmond is back on board (Is he really on Widmore's side?), it appears as if the "Lost" end times are ready to begin. What's next? That's what has Hurley, the star of this episode, in such a dither. Meanwhile, Ilana and her crew are heading for Hydra Island. Don't expect what happens when they get there to be pretty. Since this is a Hurley-centric episode, look for Libby (Cynthia Watros) and Hugo's mom (Lillian Hurst). And, as a bonus, you get Michael (Harold Perrineau), too. * Melrose Place (9/8c The CW ) We're still waiting for word on whether this woefully underrated reboot will get the green light for Season 2. In the meantime, the first season wraps up with the anticipated showdown between the fierce Amanda and the equally fierce Ella. When Ella is fired from WPK, she refuses to go down without a fight. Laura Leighton reprises her role as Sydney Andrews, but it's unclear if she'll appear in a flashback or if she's back from the dead. With Sydney, you can't rule anything out. * Deadliest Catch (9/8c Discovery Channel) If you've been left feeling crabby ever since your favorite fishing reality show took a break last year, get your claws on the remote and flip over to the Discovery Channel for tonight's sixth-season opener. Fans who follow the show know that the seasons kick off with an annual captains' meeting, but this one's dramatically different in that one skipper crosses the line, and we don't mean fishing line.

The retooled Melrose Place had its share of tools (Ashlee Simpson), but also some breakout stars (Katie Cassidy) and old, awesome faces (Thomas Calabro, Heather Locklear). More than likely, it all comes to an end Tuesday, with the prospects of a second-season renewal not looking good. But at the very least, it's going out with a clash of the titans. In "Wilshire," Amanda fires Ella from WPK, and Ella searches for anything to blackmail Amanda. For one of the ladies, the end result is worse than she could ever imagine. Who do you think prevails? Meanwhile, Jonah asks Riley to reconcile (yawn); Lauren and David do reconcile (nice) only to watch Morgan jealously retaliate and put Lauren's life in jeopardy; The Evil Dr. Mancini plants drugs on Drew to get him fired, and Sydney makes a shocking return!

This Tuesday at 9/8c, the drama-packed first season of Melrose Place (2009) comes to a close with a bang! For starters, Amanda fires Ella from WPK, and when Ella fights back with blackmail as her ultimate weapon, the ending for one of them is worse than either could have imagined! Then, that mysteriously promiscuous girl Morgan who's been following David around has a target on Lauren's back when she spots the two together, and Drew's suspicions about Michael's dangerous surgeries puts Drew in hot water at the hospital! Check out the 2 preview clips below, then don't forget to tune in tomorrow night on The CW for the finale! Preview 1 Preview 2
