Fox said goodbye to the Peach Pit gang (for now, at least) on Wednesday with the finale of its “Beverly Hills, 90210” meta revival, “BH90210,” which rose over last week’s penultimate episode in the key adults 18-49 demographic.
But the six-episode show didn’t end with enough of a bump to help its home network overtake NBC for a solo win in the demo, losing its 9 p.m. time slot to the season finale of “Songland.”
