The CW goes all new with 90210 and Privileged while election coverage dominates other nets

Nov 4, 2008 at 6:06 p.m. ET

The evening is filled with election coverage and reruns except for The CW's hits including 90210. I should have no trouble catching up on the backlog of good TV!

An emotional 90210Tempers flared on last night's edition of Dancing with the Stars. You can read all about it in my full recap! And can I say, thank you to whoever invented the DVR. There's no way I could keep up with all this TV without it.

Currently I still have Friday's Crusoe, the new Scream Queens, Sarah Connor from last night, Stargate Atlantis from two weeks and Shimmy - a belly dancing exercise show because I do everything -- including exercise -- in front of my TV.

This morning I was on a call with Henry Winkler who is starring in a new Hallmark Christmas movie. A delightful man, his words of wisdom for the day are simple: Go vote!

Let's take a look at tonight…
