Don’t Even Bother Calling Your Girlfriend Tonight

Posted by thelanetrain on September 1, 2008

Ah Labor Day, the last unofficial day of summer and time of the year when its acceptable to wear white.   But this Labor Day is somewhat of a big deal for the folks over at the CW.  That’s because tonight marks the season premiere of Gossip Girl, the CW’s highly hyped teen soap based upon the popular book series (people still read books, you know).  While the anticipated second season is riding high on the show’s permeance of current pop culture, the main challenge will be whether or not its ratings can match its reputation.  But odds are that the millions of viewers who tune in each week to see either Blair and Serena’s latest tiffs and squabbles, the incredible clothes that these so-called teenagers can afford to wear/buy, or just to people watch don’t care about what Nielsen thinks.  Even if the storyline seems convoluted and trite, GG is likely here to stay.  No amount of OMFG is ever too much to satisfy the palates of eager 16-24 year-olds.

Couple that season premiere with the toss up of staying on CW to watch One Tree Hill (which in my opinion is due for its end very soon) or The Hills on MTV (LAUREN: Oh my god Lo, like, why?  LO: I mean, like, Lauren, I don’t know) and its pretty much girls night on TV.  Let the estrogen floweth over.
