Um, can someone call Steve Harvey and see if he had something to do with this?!?!
LA LA LAND DIDN'T WIN!!
You can't make this stuff up!
Ch-ch-check out the major screw-up (above)!!
We mentioned months ago that rumors were circulating about the possible cancellation of Melrose Place.
And it's finally happened!
The CW's attempt to revive Melrose Place is finally over. Though surprisingly One Tree Hill has been picked up again.
Seriously, who still watches that show?
Also picked up was Life Unexpected.
Are U going to miss Melrose Place? Probably not.
Rest easy, Smallville fans!
The CW show will be back this fall for its 10th season despite not being among the first shows announced for renewal.
Smallville is still performing well, especially in the men 18-34 and men 18-49 demographics.
The CW has already picked up The Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl, 90120, Supernatural and America's Next Top Model for another season, but the futures of One Tree Hill, Life Unexpected and Melrose Place are still uncertain.
We hear Melrose shouldn't be holding its breath!

Even getting rid of their worst actress couldn't save their show!
The network could only put up with it's poor ratings for so long.
They're dropping like flies in the 90210 zip code!
A source explains Rob's exit, who played Principal Harry Wilson, saying: "The producers, the studio and Rob came to the conclusion together that his role had ran its course. There just wasn’t enough for Rob to do because the show is more about the kids."
And apparently that's where the execs are putting all their money. The source continues:
"Rob’s an expensive actor and wants to be challenged and it became increasingly clear that most of the penny lifting was going to the younger cast members of the show, who Rob adores. He’s absolutely leaving the show on good terms."
But according to another source, that's not the case.
The second source reveals:
"Rob’s not happy about it all. Basically they couldn’t agree on money and that’s all it comes down to. Rob’s an experienced actor and feels he deserves to be compensated accordingly, but the CW just want to cut costs and they want to reward all these young, hot, up and coming, and therefore cheaper, actors and actresses instead."
Hear that AnnaLynne? You're cheap!
Continuing to take a dig at the actor, source #2 says Rob really needed the money.

We don't see Melrose Place lasting too much longer, even with the much hyped return of Heather Locklear.
In her premiere return episode this week, the show only saw a 14% ratings rise, garnering them only 1.5 million viewers and a 0.8 preliminary rating among adults 18-49.

Will Dr. Peter Burns be back in action with Amanda Woodward?
Heather Locklear's debut episode on the CW's Melrose Place is coming up on November 17th and the actress revealed that she would love if current boyfriend and former on-screen flame, Jack Wagner ,would appear on the show as well.
The couple has been dating since 2007 and Locklear says "it would be great fun" to have her "favorite person to hang out with" on the show alongside her.
But she wouldn't want him hooking up with anyone else! "That's a no-no!"
Well that doesn't seem likely on Melrose Place! It's all about affairs and swapping sexual partners! Even Heather has said that the CW's version is "a littler racier that the old Melrose."
Locklear herself just had a make-out scene with Billy Campbell to which she admitted that "it was fabulous."
We do think it's a good idea to bring back Jack Wagner, though!
Do U want to see an Melrose reunion between Peter and Amanda?
