Seriously, CW?



The CW's New Shows Are Lacking In Color, Jezebel via Racialicious.

'Privileged': The kids are all white, and kind of shallow, too, USA Today.

Bring it on...It's already been broughton!
, Stephanie's Soap Box.

The first two links are self-explanatory. In the third one, Stephanie laments that she didn't see the murder of "Q" (the troublemaker with a heart of gold) coming on One Tree Hill. Coincidentally, Q is one of the only nonwhite people on One Tree Hill. I haven't watched an entire episode since Season Two, but I think Skills is still there. So now there is one left.

What can I say that I haven't said before? Oh yes. As I think back to the old 90210, glaringly white though it may have been, in retrospect, the original series looks inspired compared to this latest rip-off of The OC.

Skills is still on the show. Fergie was on it last season but suddenly he is gone this season and they have not said where he went?

Although Q's dealth did bring us the fabulous Dawnn Lewis back to the television. Jaleesa! She is playing his grieving mother. But I doubt she will be in very many more episodes.

Hooray for Dawnn Lewis! She needs work. Maybe she and Holly Robinson Peete and Mark Curry can do a follow up show to Hangin' with Mr. Cooper.
