9-10 PM · The CW · Debuts Sept. 9

CONCEPT Yale grad Megan (Reba‘s JoAnna Garcia) tutors two Palm Beach teen heiresses (Ashley Newbrough and Lucy Kate Hale).
THE SCOOP ”What if the Gilmore Girls were teaching the Gossip Girls?” says exec producer Rina Mimoun of the vibe. ”We’re trying to keep a Clueless spirit.” Adds Garcia, ”It’s about the journey of a girl I strongly identify with…. It will be something you care about.”
BOTTOM LINE There have been major reshoots and recasting: The result is a likable but uneven debut, veering too often from cute to forced quirkiness.
