Gossip Girl Ratings Tank — What Happened?

Written by , Posted in General

There is something seriously wrong with the people running The CW, if they cannot get viewers for their highest quality show. The ratings for last night’s season premiere were down 29% from last fall’s season premiere. Why? Because no one knew it was on. A male friend of mine (whose name I won’t mention, for fear that he’s embarrassed to admit his avid devotion to Gossip Girl), was shocked when I asked if he was excited for the new season. “How did I not know it was back?,” he asked. Unlike Gossip Girl, Nikita generated huge ratings (well, huge in CW land), because it was excessively promoted.  So get with the program guys.

    And it was actually a really good episode. At least really good by Gossip Girl standards.

    • Gossip Girl standards!? Don’t pretend like every single episode of that
      show isn’t incredible!

        If by every episode you mean once in a while there is a good one, then yes, every episode is incredible.

        • The entire first season was awesome (with the exception of Georgina — who I
          hate and they keep bringing back)
