What happens in Beverly Hills most certainly does not stay in Beverly Hills.
In a new tell-all memoir, former Beverly Hills, 90210 star Jason Priestley offers juicy tidbits about his former co-stars on the hit show, as well as life as a young heartthrob living in Hollywood.
The revelations in the book, according to The Hollywood Reporter include tales of Shannen Doherty's diva behavior and Priestley deciding to put a vulgar spin on the famous line "Donna Martin graduates" as a joke during filming. Here's a breakdown:
Wednesday's episode of CSI marks the CBS procedural's 300th episode, and no matter how you slice it, that's a lot of murder.
"We figure we've killed thousands of people," executive producer Carol Mendelsohn says with a laugh. "Which probably isn't something to be proud of, but... most shows never get to 300 episodes. Everybody's just so proud."
The CSI cast reflects on the show's finest hours
Indeed, reaching such a milestone is rare in today's increasingly fragmented television landscape...
Aw, heck. Is it really worth making a fuss over The Middle's 100-episode milestone? It hardly seems in character for a family like the Hecks of Orson, Indiana. When she's reminded that they volunteered to drive a giant cow float in Orson's centennial parade, Frankie (Patricia Heaton) whines, "This is what happens when we drink: We sign up for stupid committees. Or get Brick."
But as Orson itself expresses in a self-deprecating new town motto: "Why not?" This episode (Wednesday, 8/7c, ABC) truly is cause for celebration, as TV's most heartfelt and hilariously relatable family sitcom reflects on what brought Frankie and Mike (Neil Flynn) to Orson in the first place, while giving their lovably imperfect offspring a chance to shine in clever-to-wacky subplots. (Sue's attempt to make Darrin jealous by cozying up to her flamboyant BFF Brad is especially genius.)
Want to know what went on behind the scenes of the hit '90s drama Beverly Hills, 90210? Star Jason Priestley is planning to tell all in an upcoming memoir, according to The Hollywood Reporter,
HarperCollins has acquired Priestley's memoir with their division Imprint HarperOne. It is slated to be published in Spring 2014.

Last week, NBC's ludicrous insta-flop Do No Harm (about a Jekyll-Hyde neurosurgeon) pushed TV's medical genre beyond its melodramatic limits. Taking the completely opposite tack, and likely to get a much longer leash (this being cable), TNT's Monday Mornings (Monday, 10/9c) is a surprisingly mellow drama set at a hospital, about doctors forced to face up to their shortcomings, with an ensemble led by (trend alert?) gorgeous and flawed — though decidedly not bonkers — neurosurgeons, played by Jamie Bamber and Jennifer Finnigan.
