With teen hits like Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, and 90210, you'd think Privileged would make for a hit as well, but sadly the fate of this newbie is not looking so hot, especially now that The CW has given it an earlier finale than originally planned (now Feb 24th).
I admit I am among the guilty who didn't keep up with Privileged despite really enjoying the premiere, but my fellow SideReel TV junkie, RachelL, swears by its adorableness and quality, and so does EW, so check out EW's top 5 reasons Privileged should be saved and comment with your reasons as well!
1. Joanna Garcia
As tutor-to-the-rich Megan Smith (pictured, left), Garcia plays cynical and sunny, pretty and goofy, dark and funny. Think Lorelai and Rory Gilmore in one, with a little Veronica Mars on top.
2. The Gilmore vibe
Nothing can replace the Girls, but Privileged comes close, with heartfelt family stories, endearing side characters (Allan Louis' chef Marco -- pictured, right -- has his own series' worth of drama!), and sparkling banter.
3. The Twins
Megan's wealthy charges, Rose (Lucy Kate Hale) and Sage (Ashley Newbrough), struggle with Paris Hilton urges, date dorks and the help, and might even want to be a little smart.
4. Its Dark Side
Megan's mom, who ditched her when she was a kid, suddenly reappeared. She then stole $25,000 from Megan's boyfriend. Who was planning to use it as bail money for Megan's sister. Who was accused of running drugs.
5. Underrated Actors
Anne Archer as matriarch Laurel, Sharon Lawrence as Megan's mom, and cougar bait Robert Buckley (Lipstick Jungle) as her editor...they've earned their job security!
