Trailer Park: CW Unveils Promos for "Melrose Place" and "Vampire Diaries"

A few days after the CW unveiled its fall primetime schedule, the netlet has release new teaser trailers for its upcoming series Melrose Place and Vampire Diaries.

The thirty-second spot for Melrose Place features swooping camera movements through the iconic apartment complex and voiceover from the characters about their dreams, fears, and dilemmas, before then showcases a series of quick-cut scenes from the pilot episode. Melrose Place will air Tuesdays at 9 pm ET/PT.

The promo for the Kevin Williamson-executive produced supernatural series Vampire Diaries, meanwhile, puts the action squarely on the relationship between teenager Elena (Nina Dobrev) and vampire Stefan (Paul Wesley), culminating in the first encounter between the two star-crossed lovers. Vampire Diaries will air Thursdays at 8 pm ET/PT.

The new promos for Melrose Place and Vampire Diaries can be found below.

The Vampire Diaries trailer just looks like a cheesy rip off of the already cheesy Twilight. Ick!

The Melrose Place one was pretty bad too but it was at least cool to see the Melrose Place set back in action. I'll check out the first episode (but will probably hate myself for doing so).

Vampire Diaries looks awful. Melrose Place also looks pretty bad. Won't be watching either.

I don't know. I think both could be really fun. Check your brain at the door but still fun. I'll be checking out Melrose and Vampire Diaries when they air. Reserving judgement until then.

I will probably watch the 1st episode of Melrose Place just to see what they do with it. If it's too much like the original, then I won't be committing myself to weekly viewing. I watched MP religiously back-in-the-day and don't want to have that been-there-done-that feeling every week.

The Vampire Diaries definitely is giving off a Twilight vibe, but I'll reserve judgement until after seeing the 1st episode. I liked Twilight even though it was for the younger crowd.

It's hard to tell what a show will really be like just from a preview, so I think i'm going to watch both and give them a chance. We really need some good new shows.

The Vampire Diaries is based on the four books written by Lisa Jane Smith. They were just as good as all her books, actually written way before Twilight. It's not a rip off. Looks like it's for the younger crowd, but I'll check it out. They shoulda made them into movies instead.

You peopple make me mad, the books the Vampire Diaries came out WAY before Twilight dis, they came out in the early 1990's. And to be honest, the whole human, vamoire thing, is not a new topic, at all.

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous seas

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

Me Want Food: Jenna Gets Famously Fat on "30 Rock"

I don't know about you, but I've already ordered my "Me Want Food" t-shirt from the NBC store. Last night's episode of 30 Rock ("Jack Gets in the Game") was, in my opinion, one of the strongest of the series and has officially pushed the zany comedy into the realm of Arrested Development : deftly plotted and intricately layered, with so many jokes piled atop of jokes that it requires several viewings in order to catch them all. While at its heart, 30 Rock is a workplace comedy, it's left that narrow pigeonhole behind to become a witty example of how intelligent and taut humor can work (and flourish) on television... and exist in harmony with hilarious throwaways like the Thriller -inspired Werewolf Bar Mitzvah music video that would have done the AD crew proud. I want Will Arnett to appear on this series whenever possible. His gay exec Devin is hilarious, manipulative, and has an inexplicable weakness for Kenneth the Page, but he claims to have
