'Gossip Girl' Promo: The Plasticines + Lots of Clips from Next Week's Episode

It doesn't take a genius to figure out why the higher-ups behind Gossip Girl thought all-female band The Plasticines would be the perfect musical guest for next week's episode, 3.09 "They Shoot Humphreys, Don't They?" The song the group will be performing on the episode, "Bitch," isn't exactly oozing with subtext. More like "in-your-face-references-to-Jenny-and-Blair" text. They literally spell it out for us! Don't mistake that for criticism. After watching the 3-minute promo for the now even more anticipated "threesome" episode (airing Monday, Nov. 9 at 9 PM on The CW ) I have to admit the song isn't just a perfect match--it's perfectly catchy! After the jump, check out the promo, which includes some of the bitchiness moments coming up during next week's Gossip Girl, set to the catchiness that is The Plasticines' "Bitch." Source & Preview

'Gossip Girl' Threesome Episode Under PTC Threat - Featured

" Gossip Girl " very special episode of threesome which is scheduled to air on Monday, November 9 is under threat of not being aired. The Parents Television Council (PTC) has released an open letter to The CW that they are objecting to the idea of such scene. They claimed such moves are "reckless and irresponsible". " 'Gossip Girl' routinely depicts teenage characters engaging in promiscuous and consequence-free sexual behavior, and that's bad enough," PTC president Tim Winter wrote. "But will you now be complicit in establishing a precedent and expectation that teenagers should engage in behaviors heretofore associated primarily with adult films?" Winter said they will put a fine should the government agree with them about the episode content. The episode called "They Shoot Humphreys, Don't They?" is not yet aired but PTC has heard about it through reports like the one from EW which spilled that there would be three characters engaged in a sex activity on the same bed. "PTC will monitor this episode very closely," the council warned The CW. On the last few notes, Winter said, "Finally, you must ask yourself, how does airing this program serve your obligation to serve the public interest?" when referring to Federal Communications Commission's rule which can yank any "unsatisfactory or unsuitable or contrary to public interest" program. The CW has not publicly responded to the letter but has released two clips from the episode instead. They contain no scene of the threesome for sources said the racy tryst will occur in the end of the episode. Source & Clips

Gossip Girl' 3.09 "They Shoot Humphreys, Don't They?" Preview - Featured

This season alone, " Gossip Girl " has gone through a boy-on-boy kiss and an erotic film scene but next week, the show will explore a threesome. There is no word yet which characters will be involved in the three-way sex since the actors refuse to reveal whether they are one of them. Leighton Meester aka Blair previously said, "We're all in college now, so we can definitely push the limit with the sexuality, which is fine by me. I sort of make the kiss happen. I can tell you that much, and that's it." Michelle Trachtenberg meanwhile was a little more generous, spilling "I would imagine it's going to involve at least one boy and one girl." The synopsis for the November 9 episode - "They Shoot Humphreys, Don't They?" - is read, "Not satisfied with just being Queen of Constance Billard, Jenny sets her sights on becoming the Queen of all the Upper East Side by landing the hottest escort for Cotillion."
