Malibu Shores (NBC, 8-10 p.m.): This latest drama series from Aaron Spelling - producer of such shows as "Charlie's Angels," "Dynasty," and WB's current "Savannah" - is a rehash of his "Beverly Hills 90210" series. Once again the plot follows the ups and downs of rich high schoolers, though the twist here is another set of characters: teenagers from "the other side of the tracks."
