Ratings: 'Melrose Place' not as desirable as '90210'

Posted on

The fall TV season officially kicked off Tuesday night with the second season premiere of 90210 and the series debut of the updated Melrose Place on The CW. While Melrose outperformed previous time slot holder Privileged, its numbers didn’t quite match the hype. The good news: The CW is the one network that will give a show time to fully bloom. The bad news: That means we haven’t heard the last of “Tuesday is the new hump day.”
