Once upon a time, Beverly Hills, 90210 was a big hit for FOX. Now the network has revived it as the BH90210 TV show, but this revival is actually a reboot — with a metafictional twist. Does it have what it takes to reel in old viewers and new ones alike? Will BH90210 be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A FOX comedy-drama, BH90210 stars Jason Priestley, Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green, and Tori Spelling. Instead of playing their old Beverly Hills, 90210 characters, the actors play highly fictionalized versions of themselves reuniting to reboot the original series. Revisiting the past creates more soapy drama than is present in the show-within-the-show. When first loves, old flames, friends, and enemies reunite and try to pick up where they left off, anything can happen.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
