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.

Melrose Place and Vampire Diaries will launch this fall on the CW.


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.

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 .

BuzzFeed: Meet The TV Successor To "Serial"

HBO's stranger-than-fiction true crime documentary The Jinx   — about real estate heir Robert Durst — brings the chills and thrills missing since Serial   wrapped up its first season. Serial   obsessives: HBO's latest documentary series is exactly what you've been waiting for.   The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst , like Sarah Koenig's beloved podcast, sifts through old documents, finds new leads from fresh interviews, and seeks to determine just what happened on a fateful day in which the most foul murder was committed. And, also like  Serial  before it,  The Jinx may also hold no ultimate answer to innocence or guilt. But that seems almost beside the point; such investigations often remain murky and unclear, and guilt is not so easy a thing to be judged. Instead, this upcoming six-part tantalizing murder mystery, from director Andrew Jarecki ( Capturing the Friedmans ), is a gripping true crime story that unfolds with all of the speed of a page-turner; it

BuzzFeed: "The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now"

The CBS legal drama, now in its sixth season, continually shakes up its narrative foundations and proves itself fearless in the process. Spoilers ahead, if you’re not up to date on the show. At BuzzFeed, you can read my latest feature, " The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now," in which I praise CBS' The Good Wife and, well, hail it as the best show currently on television. (Yes, you read that right.) There is no need to be delicate here: If you’re not watching The Good Wife, you are missing out on the best show on television. I won’t qualify that statement in the least — I’m not talking about the best show currently airing on broadcast television or outside of cable or on premium or however you want to sandbox this remarkable show. No, the legal drama is the best thing currently airing on any channel on television. That The Good Wife is this perfect in its sixth season is reason to truly celebrate. Few shows embrace complexity and risk-taking in t
