So, what's the sitch with Gossip Girl? The ratings are flat (or, uh, falling, if you happen to believe in "numbers" and "facts"), and the fan caterwauling about storylines is getting louder and louder with each passing episode. Could TV's most glamorous show be succumbing to the country's larger woes and falling on hard times?
Most importantly, are the powers that be getting worried? What does the network think of the recent episodes? Are they feeling your pain?
Despite wildly negative fan responses to last week's "Age of Dissonance" and tepid reaction to this week's Nate-centric "The Grandfather," sources at the CW whisper that there is no serious concern about Gossip Girl.
"The storylines are so good," says an insider. "It was gone for so long they were expecting something amazing."
Well--unpopular opinion warning--you were paying attention, you would have seen that "Age of Dissonance" was a bleeding masterpiece. Blair's massive failure and histrionic meltdown? Edith Wharton's fictionalized Upper East Side meets Gossip Girl's blog-crazy Upper East Side? Dan going totally off the rails and therefore being as hilarious as he's ever been in his schlubby, sweet life? This is good stuff, people!
