Monday on TV: If "90210" ends, does anyone care?
When the original "Beverly Hills, 90210" signed off almost exactly 13 years ago, it was kind of a big deal in TV terms.
The show helped put the fledgling Fox network on the map. It ran for 10 seasons and 194 episodes. It was, for a time, a pop-culture icon.
The sequel series 90210
signs off tonight - and it is not a big deal. The only splash this series on The CW made was when original cast members showed up.
Yeah, it's been on for five years and 114 episodes, but most Americans have never seen it. Or even heard of it.
Nonetheless, it wraps things up with an hourlong retrospective (7 p.m., Ch. 30), followed by the final episode (8 p.m., Ch. 30).Elsewhere on TV ...How I Met Your Mother
