If there's one of Tori Spelling's former Beverly Hills, 90210 costars who isn't tuning into her dramatic True Tori docureality series, it's most likely Luke Perry.
"I think reality TV sucks for the most part," the veteran actor, 47, said when he sat down with PEOPLE last week.
"It's put so many writers out of business and put so many actors out of work that it's changed the face of entertainment. As a guy who has grown up making his living making primetime television – get that reality s––– out of here and give more writers and actors a chance to make shows that people will watch."

Good thing Steven Tyler isn't on the American Idol judging panel anymore!
In a week when viewers made the song choices for the singers, Caleb Johnson made no secret of his distaste for the Aerosmith track he was given.
"I hate that song," Johnson told PEOPLE frankly Wednesday after his performance of "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing." "I don't know why [America chose it]. I guess it was because it was a rock ballad."

America will eventually pick the winner of American Idol, but – at least for Wednesday night – viewers got the chance to pick the songs.
With Jason Mraz mentoring, each Final Five contestant sang two songs chosen by viewers.
Alex Preston started the show with "Sweater Weather," which earned nice reviews but requests for more oomph.
"You could've made it more exciting to kick off the show," said Jennifer Lopez, although Harry Connick Jr. felt it was a "strong opening."

With one of the American Idol Top 6 sent home on Thursday, the finalists are now less than a month away from the finale, where one of them will be crowned the next American Idol.
Coming off a night of "a little bit country and a little bit rock 'n' roll" on Wednesday that Donnie and Marie Osmond would have been proud of, the Top 6 eagerly waited to hear their fate from host Ryan Seacrest Thursday evening.

Just like Donny and Marie, American Idol's Top 6 were a little bit country and little bit rock 'n' roll Wednesday night.
Each contestant performed two songs, and the results were mixed for most, with judges' comments varying as much as the song selection.
Birthday boy Caleb Johnson had the super save and magical moment of the night while rocking "Sting Me" when he lost his mic before catching it without missing a beat.
