Not Even Heather Locklear Can Save This Place

| Filed under: Heather LocklearMelrose Place

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.

That's weak!

Maybe things will get better once Asslee is finally gone. And if not, at least they can say they had a better run than Mushy's show!

Heather Locklear Wants BF Jack Wagner On Melrose Place

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?

From hot, new, hit show to craptastic TV remake. Put that pretty face to work!

With Asslee Simpson moving out of Melrose Place, there are some vacancies that need to be filled.

Enter Nick Zano, who recently has been starring in Courteney Cox's new show, Cougar Town. Nick will be playing an "irreverent and funny" doctor who moves into the apartment building.

Luckily for him, the role on Melrose Place won't be interfering with his work on Cougar Town, which probably means he won't be staying long on one of these shows (likely MP)!

Looks like The CW has finally realized that Melrose Place isn't going anywhere but down.

The execs just fired Ashlee Simpson - they're guessing that might actually help increase the ratings.

And in an even better move, the network has now replaced the Wednesday repeats of Melrose Place with repeats of their hit show, The Vampire Diaries.

Starting this Wednesday, repeats of The Vampire Diaries will air through the month of November.

Great news for everyone as they'll get to enjoy their fav show twice.

As for Melrose Place, execs are hoping that with Heather Locklear's return in November the ratings will increase.

Our money is still on The Vampire Diaries making it big. Vampires mixed in with a bit of witchery is always a plus!

AMAZING!!! Ashlee Simpson FIRED From Melrose Place!!!

You should never take delight in someone else's misfortune…

Except for right now!!!!

In a shocking turn of a events this afternoon, it was announced that Ashlee Simpson was FIRED from her gig on Melrose Place. (They are also letting go Colin Egglesfield, but we don't know who that is, nor do we care!)

The producers are leading us to believe that this was the plan from the start, but something tells us that isn't the case. Here's what producer Todd Slavkin had to say :

What was behind the decision to let Ashlee and Colin go?

TODD SLAVKIN: Well, we always knew that this murder mystery would end in episode 12. And we always knew that [Ashlee's] character of Violet would be instrumental in that as a suspect, and [Colin's character of] Augie as well. And once that murder mystery was solved, she would go on her way. That was the original plan going into the development of the show.

So it was always the plan for Ashlee to leave after episode 12?

SLAVKIN: Yes. Because we felt that once the murder mystery was resolved, the tone of the show was going to shift into a much more fun, romantic, sexy upbeat kind of show, and [her] character would move on.

Is it fair to say that if either of those characters clicked you would’ve found a way to keep them?

SLAVKIN: Well, you never know when you go along. But in the end, we felt like it was right [decision].

How did Ashlee and Colin take the news?

SLAVKIN: They’re total professionals and they took it like professionals. When you go into a show you never know what’s going to evolve and what the possibilities are. But because they knew ahead of time [that leaving was a possibility], it wasn’t a complete shock.

We think she was just too expensive to keep around and the producers would much rather filter funds in keeping Heather Locklear on the show than this whacktress!

And a swing and miss for Asslee! At least she got more airtime than Mushy.

What now, hun? Going to go back to that "singing" career of yours?

Or maybe it's time to just GIVE UP!
