TV remakes

New: "Melrose Place" (CW) As Elton John once said, "the b*#tch is back." The CW tapped Heather Locklear to reprise her role as the boss from hell in the latest version of this soapy classic. And only good things can come from resurrecting Amanda Woodward. With a new cast of young and pretty things (including Ashlee Simpson-Wentz) and a few members of the old guard, this updated version keeps the voyeurism of following the apartment complex's residents intact, but everything else is up for grabs.
