Episodes Renumbered

All two-hr episodes that had a single production number and a single title, are really only single episodes. The Fox numbering system was incorrect.

Fox bids adieu to BH 90210, Party of Five
By Michael Schneider

NEW ORLEANS (Variety) - After 10 seasons, countless cast changes and even more hairstyles, "Beverly Hills, 90210" will end its run at the end of this season. "Party of Five," now in its sixth season, will also retire after this broadcast year. With two of its long-term players departing the schedule, and the possibility that "The X-Files" also might end, Fox may be forced to fill a large number of holes in its primetime lineup this fall. Fox execs had previously said "90210" would air as many as 12 fresh episodes in the summer. Thats unlikely now. The series' high costs, dwindling ratings and cast departures all fueled the decisions to pull the plug. Fox execs were apparently unwilling to continue to pay the ever-increasing license fees on "90210," which hover around $2.2 million per episode. It didn't help that the two longtime Wednesday stalwarts have stumbled in the ratings since being separated this season. Season to date, "90210" has averaged 8.4 million viewers, while "PO5," which moved to Tuesdays this season, has averaged 6.8 million viewers. Moreover, many of "90210's" remaining original cast members, including Brian Austin Green and possibly even Tori Spelling, are planning on leaving the show at the end of the season. The same is true at "Party of Five" where Neve Campbell, among others, is also expected to depart. Fox is unlikely to go forward with a "90210" spinoff.


It was revealed in the January 17, 2000, issue of Variety that Fox has plans to air new episodes of several shows through the summer, including 90210.

This is the Last Season for 90210

It was revealed in the October 18, 1999, issue of Broadcasting & Cable that this will be the last season for the show.

Fox Orders at Least 28 Hours For Tenth Season

FOX Broadcasting Company has ordered at least 28 hours. When asked (9/23/99), the reply was... "So far... 28 and counting..." If they only do 28 hours, that will make 294 episodes when the series finishes (assuming this is the last season :-) Fox claims to be doing the 300th episode this season. Of course, they cheat when they count episodes and specials.

Note About Episode Numbering

I have been informed by FOX, that all two-hour episodes are considered to be two episodes. Here is what FOX told me about how they order episodes:

I went on to ask about how FOX internally numbers the episodes:

So, even though the 200th episode is only the 196th episode aired, according to the sequential count, it isn't by FOX's numbering system. Even with this explanation from FOX, I am unable to get the episode count to match Fox. I'm not even going to try, because when it was announced that Fox's cable channel, fX, obtained the exclusive rights to the series, it gave the episode count as 240, which exactly matches my count for eight seasons.
