Full disclosure: I never watched the original Beverly Hills 90210. I’m not a fan of prime time soaps to begin with and this one in particular held no interest. These kids were all at least a half generation behind and I was never into the hairspray and tabloid headlines. My ’90s were spent helping to
Do you have BH90210 fever? Are you starting to hear that so-’90s “DUH-NA-NA-NA, DUH NA-NA-NA” TV theme emanating from strange courier parcels?

Combining the take on both CTV and the french language VRAK networks, the song search series bowed to 593,000 viewers Wednesday night in overnight estimates.

Have to thank cottage neighbour Jimmy for the heads up on Sunday’s episode of Family Guy. If you missed it live (as I did), check out the high points in the video, above, or stream it here at Citytv Go. Basically, Family Guy ran Donald Trump through a shredder. Every possible joke about his tiny
Way back when I was a young Turk at TV Guide Canada I was asked to get Steven Bochco on the phone. I thought the request was pure madness.
