Now playing in this week's (early!) edition of the Mitovich Mega Minute:
• As I spoke to nearly the entire 90210 cast at the CW upfronts, the reaction to one cast member's abrupt exit was overwhelming. See what the consensus is, and whether we might see the dispatched hunk ever again.
• Entourage's Ari may have a fight on his hands, as a formidable foe returns to the mix!
• How much time will have elapsed in Bon Temps when HBO's True Blood launches its second season? And will a major mystery be solved? Anna Paquin gives me the answers.
Watch and discuss the brand-new (and early!!) MMM, after the jump.

The new Rob Thomas-penned Beverly Hills, 90210 redux is warming up, with casting news starting to trickle out.Former Runaway Dustin Milligan is the first actor to have been cast in the updated version of the show, says the Reporter. He's set to play Ethan, the big-man-on-campus star athlete at West Beverly High. Along with his TV work, Milligan also appeared in recent movies including creep-fest The Messengers and love-fest In the Land of Women. Without more cast announcements, it's tough to visualize his dynamic with the other as-yet-unnamed kids at West Beverly, but the floppy-haired Canadian's a good start for the spin-off.

Sorry for the lateness, but I realized I should probably make a post concerning the recent news: if you havent heard yet, the CW cancelled Runaway last week. Even more disappointing, although theres a handful of episodes left that havent been aired, theyve chosen to just shelve them and air Americas Next Top Model in the timeslot instead.I was really starting to get hooked on this show and Ill miss Runaway: it was a surprisingly effective mix of serialized thriller and family drama, and pulling off just one of those on a regular basis is tough enough. I wont try to second-guess whether or not pulling the plug was justified (the ratings were pretty dismal), but I still think its a shame that it couldnt be afforded more time for an audience build. Maybe in todays overstuffed marketplace if you cant start strong right from the beginning its already too late.Its possible that the remaining episodes might be...
I realize its not the most important thing to mention at the beginning of my first blog for Runaway, but seriously, Donnie Wahlberg is playing the middle-aged dad whos described in the police bulletin as gray-haired? I wasnt exactly a New Kids on the Block fan back in the day, but I can clearly remember a time when he was a teen idol encouraging kids to Hang Tough and inspiring them that they had the Right Stuff. Jeez, I feel old.Although I know its a bit late, I really liked the premiere episode of Runaway, and Im most impressed by the fact that its got three or four compelling storylines already. Its really two genres merged into one: for the dad its a conspiracy thriller as he tries to unravel the mystery of who killed his former colleague and framed him and what secrets the murderers are protecting; for everyone else, its another moving to a small town and reconnecting with each ot...
