When Walter Stratford goes out of town; his girls go a bit crazy with a house party. Bianca believes the party will help make her legendary and Kat brings her own “responsible” touch to the party with recycle bins and designated driver wristbands – and a very special karaoke performance. Is Kat finally letting loose? And will they really get away with throwing a house party? Find out in an all-new episode of ABC Family’s original series, 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU, premiering tonight (8:00 – 8:30 PM ET/PT). The episode, entitled “Fight for Your Right,” was directed by Henry Chan and written by Erin Erlich.

Meanwhile, the party stirs up relationship trouble for Chastity and Joe, while Patrick makes an unexpected appearance to clear the air with Kat after abandoning her at the dance. And Cameron is clueless to the fact that the watermelon he is “snacking” on has an extra special ingredient.

10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU is executive produced by Carter Covington. Larry Miller reprises his role as Walter Stratford, the over-protective father to the Stratford sisters -- Kat, a feminist with a razor-sharp tongue, portrayed by Lindsey Shaw, and Bianca, a girl with a plan to climb the social ladder at her new school, portrayed by Meaghan Martin. Ethan Peck takes on the role of resident bad boy, Patrick Verona. Nicholas Braun portrays Cameron James, Padua High’s “nice guy,” and Dana Davis will portray head cheerleader Chastity Church.

  1. In addition to covering the ABC Family teen soaps, have you thought about covering HBO's "True Blood," which is equally as soapy and is a descendant in spirit of "Dark Shadows" or Showtimes "Weeds"? Both soaps have as much if not more in common with daytime soaps than the teen shows.

    As an adult soap fan, I would enjoy reading your take on those shows. I'm a little tired of bitchy teen girls. So, I skip the teen shows. I've tried watching Gossip Girl but most of the characters are revolting and ridiculous. Take the character Chuck Bass. He's a 17-year-old uber sophisticated, jaded, sex fiend who thinks he's qualified to run his late father's business empire. Yeah, a 17-year-old, who has never worked in any business capacity, as head of a major company. Bleh.

    Now watching a suburban mom sink into a life of drug kingpin is ridiculously funny, deliberately so.

    If you are interested in the future of soaps, why not explore some of the serialized nighttime dramas and satires? Some are great, like the aforementioned. Others are bad or terrible ("Heroes" or "24").

    Nighttime serial viewers don't like to think of themselves as watching soaps. They don't want to admit that the melodrama and cliffhangers that exist in their programs are nearly identical to those on daytime serials. The angst and romance may be subtler, but they are all family. How are the outlandish resurrections of thought-dead characters on "24" different from those on Y&R?
