CW urges viewers to vote for Brenda and Dixon

It's the night of Nov. 4. Votes are being tabulated for the most unpredictable, riveting and historic presidential election in our lifetime. All the major broadcasters and cable news networks are providing nonstop coverage, reporters leaping on every new piece of data that hints at who will win the Oval Office.

So let's watch "90210"!

The CW, the only broadcast network airing entertainment programming on Election Night, just put out a release touting its Nov. 4 programming featuring shortened versions of "90210" and "Privileged" that will give local stations some airtime to run election updates. About 90% of stations will participate in the cut-ins. The CW hopes its counterprogramming will boost tune-in for the soaps. "Privileged" seemed to benefit from being on solo against the third presidential debate a couple weeks ago.
