No. 6: 'Melrose Place'

CW's reboot of "Melrose Place" kicks off true to its roots with the murder of an original cast member (Unless, you've been living under a rock you know it's Laura Leighton's Sydney). The murder mystery will play out the entire season in flashbacks. (Hey, the formula worked on Wisteria Lane. Could "MP" strike "Desperate Housewives" lightning? Time will tell.). "MP 2.0" cast a hot, hip and diverse set of newcomers including Katie Cassidy, Michael Rady and Stephanie Jacobsen. Joining them are returning faves Thomas Calabro, Josie Bissett, Daphne Zuniga and hopefully Heather Locklear. Let the drama begin. (Editor's note: We had a spirited debate over which shows would grace our must-see list and I was the sole member of the Zap2it editorial team who chose "MP". But in the words of Kirsten Dunst's team captain in "Bring It On": "This isn't a democracy. It's a cheerocracy. I'm overruling you...") -- Joseph Anthony Kapsch, Zap2it
