    Sorry I live in Canada...which shows commercials exactly like America.

    But I know in England they show half the show than have one long commerical and then show the rest of the program. I wish they would do that here...

    In France you have only a commercial in the middle of the show, like after 20 minutes. It's for 5 minutes.

    I don't know how you do in America !! You have 4, am I right? Here people always complain about having only one commercial per tv show or movie.

    Well frankly, when it's a major show it's like 8 months, which is really good. But when it's not well known or depending on the network, you are waiting for like ages and often, all the seasons are not aired !!! We have a channel here named France 2, well this channel just buy a lot of series and then just air like one season. So Gilmore Girls or Everwood are not even finished here. We are like at the season 2 or something like that. That's ridiculous they just air one season and then nothing, they stop everything.

    Tv Show's lovers are soooo angry about that, we signed a lot of petitions for some good series but pfff they never listen to us. TV shows in France are just emerging for like 2 years now, it's starting to be as important as movies are.

    2.44 million viewers

    The highest since episode 10, but not by much! Especially considering no internet streaming and the OMFG campaign! I was expecting better!

    I knew the promos wouldn't of done much for the series. OTH had 2.88 million viewers, slightly higher then Gossip Girl. I knew that with the heavy exposure of OMFG it would make viewers annoyed.

    Well, you also have to add that in some European countries shows are synchronized into the language of that country. I live in the Netherlands where, and I'm very happy about this, shows are subtitled and NOT synchronized. (Well I download all the US shows I like anyway but that's besides the point)

    It still did well guys, look at this... At CW, "Gossip Girl" (1.3/4 in 18-49, 2.4 million viewers overall) logged its third best performance in its 14 episodes to date among adults 18-34 (2.0/6) and women 18-34 (2.9/, placing second in the 8 o'clock hour in the latter. Combined with the solid "One Tree Hill" (1.4/3 in 18-49, 2.8 million viewers overall), the net delivered its best Monday yet in its target demos.

    I think it is because of the day change and that Greek also comes on at the same time which has the same demographic of people watching the show. I watched Gossip Girl instead of Greek but I love both shows.

    Wow, those ratings is SO upsetting. Especially when they have been heavily promoting Gossip Girl. OMFG promos everywhere and 2.44 is all they got. That's very upsetting.
