Why is Gossip Girl so popular? They have steamy scenes, deadly scandals, and everything that anyone could ever dream of having in an entertaining show. But what about Desperate Houswives, or Dirty Sexy Money? Or all of those other soaps? They may have different settings and characters, but there are the same themes in each. Money, sex, drugs and alcohol, etc. All of those soap operas out there are the same. Maybe Gossip Girl is so well-liked because of the young and fresh faces we see on the TV screen. And the youth may like to relate to that. They want to get away from their own boring lives and get an insight on others that have more edge, and well, gossip.
How is Gossip Girl going to change in the next few seasons? New characters maybe, but I predict the plot will be dead and old soon.
