In honor of this week's return of not one, but two TV series - 30 Rock and Ugly Betty - that are set in New York City, SideReel is celebrating the Big Apple! Earlier, SideReel's Kendra shared her Top 10 Favorite New York Shows . But now we're going to blow your mind. Just because a series is set in New York does not actually mean that it is filmed there! So...today we're challenging you to identify those Fake Apples! Which of the 10 "New York" series in the image above are not actually filmed in New York? Which shows have had you fooled? We'll give you a hint: 5 of the above series are/were actually filmed in NY and 5 were not. Can you pick out the fake Apples? Without usage of Wikipedia (because that's no fun...), guess which of the 5 NY series are actually filmed elsewhere (meaning Los Angeles). We'll reveal the answers tomorrow afternoon. And now for your answers: In reality, it's more like 5.5 shows that have utilized Fake Apples, since as some of you pointed out, Ugly Betty filmed in LA until last season. The other shows not filmed in New York include How I Met Your Mother, Seinfeld, Friends, Mad Men and Heroes (some may have some external or overhead shots taken in NY - like the restaurant in Seinfeld - but the primary filming for all of these shows takes place in LA). Surprised by any of these? Thanks for participating!

I don't live in America. So after watching Gossip Girl, I started to wonder whether there really is such a class of people like Blair, Serena, Chuck and Nate? If so, where can I find out more about this people and do they really live at the Upper East Side?
Season 3 is finally here! What did you think??? And what does everyone think of Serena and Carter? Cute or a horrible couple? I honestly don't like them together very much...I think it's because of what Carter has done in the past is what really makes me feel iffy against their relationship. And what does Scott want? Is he wanting to be accepted into the family so he can get their money? Or is he really just an innocent guy who wants to get to know his real father? And was it obvious to you what Serena was trying to do? For me, it was obvious. I mean, why else would she want to keep taking pictures of herself for a certain someone they kept mentioning? Do you guys think that Serena's dad will ever show up on the show? Or will he remain "anonymous" forever? Oh and how could I forget Blair and Chuck? I love them together but do you guys think that they'll stay together for long? I think they'll stay together. I mean, at first I honestly thought Chuck was cheating on Blair but the "game" they play seems..kinda normal? Ever seen 4 Christmases?

I just watched the season 3 premiere and was slightly puzzled by Eric seeming to check Jenny out when he sat down beside her by the pool at the start of the episode. It looked like his girl blinkers had just been removed. Is he really into girls after all that drama in season 1? Will him and Jenny begin an incestuous relationship in the near future? Or am I just seeking out further drama where there is none....
Welcome back, Upper East Siders! We got our most delicious guilty pleasure of Gossip Girl back with the Season 3 premiere, ' Reversals of Fortune ,' so what did you think? Was it as shockingly dramalicious as you'd hoped or did you find the Season 3 premiere to be too much catch-up leaving the real drama of the summer to our imaginations? It seems like the 'Chair' drama may be a bit strained now that they're actually together, and Serena having another crazy summer with another crazy guy and the not-so-shocking revelation that things didn't go so well with her dad, plus Nate having another new summer fling... it all seems a little old hat and like a bunch of dead ends. But maybe there's hope for dramatic revival? Share your thoughts and predictions in the comments!
I was just wondering if anyone could tell me how long after the episode will it be able to watch on here?
