It's funny. His death had an impact on so many people for some reason. Possibly because of having a massive stroke at 52 isn't common and he was an all around good guy?

Most of the original 90210 fanbase is in their late 30's / early '40s, so they're all having a "Holy human waste, 52? Oh human waste I'm mortal!" moment.

I would say maybe 40s to late 50s. A lot of the 30 somethings weren't into the original 90210. They were the Gossip Girl demographic. 90210 goes back to early 90s. The 30 somethings were still playing with Barbies. :)

Yeah, 30-somethings watched "The OC." Which is how people learned to say "The OC," instead properly saying "OC."

Fifty-somethings watched "Thirtysomething."

Same here.
I was too young for Thirtysomething (still in my 20s) and 90210 was for people younger than me.
