This weekend: The '90210' you missed, a Chicago kid's new show

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Stop being mad at Barack Obama, "90210" fans. He didn't deprive you of an episode of your favorite teen drama; he just delayed it.

The show bumped on Tuesday for election coverage airs tonight at 7 on WGN-Channel 9. (On this one, Annie and Dixon learn of their secret brother.) "Privileged," another casualty of the polling, follows at 8.

Some other weekend shows of note:

"Saturday Night Live Presidential Bash" (8 tonight, WMAQ-Channel 5). While the overworked "SNL" actors take a post-election breather, here's a repeat from Monday of their political clip show. At 10:30 is a rerun of the James Franco episode.

"True Jackson, VP" (8:30 tonight, Nickelodeon) One of our area's great show-biz success stories, 15-year-old Harvey native Keke Palmer, gets her own series. The "Akeelah and the Bee" star plays a teen so stylish, she's made an executive at a fashion firm.

"Summer Heights High" (9:30 p.m. Sunday, HBO) In the slot formerly occupied by "Little Britain USA" comes some more charmingly accented comedy. This is an Australian sitcom about a boy and a girl in high school and their full-of-himself drama teacher -- all played by the same guy, a 33-year-old stand-up comic named Chris Lilley.
