This is the time of year when, typically, all the television networks start sending the screeners for the pilots of all their new shows to critics. This gives all the entertainment outlets time to watch the new shows, give them reviews, and sort out the potential hits from the probable busts. It's not often that networks shield a new show from critics. But, that's what The CW is going to do with what most think will be their most successful new series. Today, CW sent out a notice to critics notifying them that they would not be receiving the two-hour pilot for 90210
, the reboot of Beverly Hills 90210
, which was a hit for FOX in the nineties.
