Here is Blindie’s shortlist of our most anticipated TV shows of 2009:
True Beauty: It’s America’s Next Top Model meets Punk’D as reality show powerhouses Tyra Banks and Ashton Kutcher team up to trick a bevy of pretty guys and gals into proving they posess inner beauty for a prize of $100,000 and a spot in People magazine’s 100 Most Beautiful issue. we can’t wait to see if Ms. Banks will strike gold with another reality beauty pageant. Vanessa Minnillo, Nolé Marin and 1970s supermodel Cheryl Tiegs star as judges. Premieres January 5, on ABC.

Along for the reality ride is their cousin Jessica, and their friend and aspiring singer Alycia. We hope Girls will offer some much-needed positive television role models for young black girls everywhere. Premieres January 5, on MTV.
90210: The CW (aka 90s spinoff machine..yes Melrose Place is next!) is bringing new episodes back in January and we can’t wait to see who Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) ends up with, what’s the real deal with Anne-Dixon-Naomi’s new brother (Josh Henderson), and if Annie (Shenae Grimes) will lose her virginity to Ethan (Dustin Milligan).

Annie (Shenae Grimes) hits the homecoming dance with unofficial date Ethan (Dustin Milligan), druggie queen Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) checks into rehab with Navid (Michael Steger) fronting the bill; and hot lit teacher Ryan (Ryan Eggold) discovers that Kimberly (Jessica Lucas) is an undercover cop–and kisses her!
Here are Tuesday’s Top Ten moments
1. “It’s like a big popularity contest set to music,” Silver says of her perception of high school homecoming dances before fighting through the pain of her wisdom teeth’s removal to go to the dance with Dixon.
2. The amazingly fantastic chemistry between the hot lit teacher and new girl on the block, Kimberly–and the incredibly forced chemistry between Navid and druggie drama queen Adrianna.
3. Ethan and Annie’s bootleg arrangement for the homecoming dance.

5. Ethan and Navid get substantial screen time with actual dialogue!
6. After Naomi barks back in Spanish to the hot Latino bad boy in detention, hot boy asks, “Mexican Nanny?” She deadpans, “Honduran!” “A pasty white girl who speaks Spanish fluently, that’s sexy!” he says.

BONUS: Little Jackie performs at West Beverly High’s homecoming dance…loves it!
Three weeks ago, Jessica Lucas made her sassy debut on The CW’s remake of 90210, where not only did she trade witty banter with the hot lit teacher, but she revealed herself as an undercover cop–and another dose of ethnic ambiguity on primetime TV.
Lucas, who is best known for running around New York in that nauseous hit Cloverfield, is reportedly half Pakistani and half black. But like Gossip Girl‘s Jessica Szohr who came before her, there’s no mention of her background on the show, where she plays new transfer student-drug agent Kimberly MacIntyre.
While the 23-year-old’s resume boasts the best credits a scream queen can have, Blindie hopes this hot dash of sass will stick around West Beverly High–hopefully exploring the undeniable chemistry she has with Ryan Eggold (aka: the Hot Lit Teacher).
