    Just informing everyone of some BAD news... Supposedly, CW already having a hard time finding advertisers and there is a LARGE possibility that next year will be the LAST year of CW...which means NO GG ever!! So it will be more important than EVER that GG gets MUCH BETTER ratings than this year...which could a) help keep CW on longer (basically everything has to be a success next year or CW is DONE). Especially because Smallville will be done next year and it is the highest rated scripted show on CW...everything else gets around GG ratings anyways... b) If GG gets better ratings, and is already the most buzz-worthy show in the business it could have a better chance being picked up by a cable network if CW is done...ie) I could totally see GG on MTV!! SO MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER NOW WATCH GG LIVE ON MONDAY AT 8 PM FOR HTE FINALE...lets break the 3 million mark!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    No way seriously, Can't the show get picked up by another network? I honestly cannot believe how low the ratings are, I mean didn't the OC get something along the lines of 9.7 viewers with a low of like 5 million? And although the OC was good, One Tree Hill and Gossip Girl are equally as great and the ratings for them are so poor. There may be hope in the second season though, OTH got poor ratings season one and the best ratings its ever had season 2. So lets hope the writers give us all something worth watching.

    We were SO CLOSE to 3 million viewers but yet so far away!!! But atleast we ended on a high!!!! Our ratings almost beat NBC on monday too!! I bet once our FINAL ratings come out in a few days...we got over three million viewers!


    The final performances on "Dancing with the Stars" scored a 12.3/20 for ABC at 8 p.m. The season finale of "Bones" earned a 6.3/10 for FOX, topping "The Big Bang Theory," 4.7/8, and "How I Met Your Mother," 4.9/8, on CBS. "American Gladiators" took fourth for ABC, with the finale of "Gossip Girl," 2.0/3, not far behind on The CW.

    Any predictions for what ratings SKOW will get?

    I predict about 2.8 million, although I would love it to get more!

    I believe we will since it's more established now and the buzz around the show keeps growing... and hopefully more people will have caught up on S1 while it was off the air... and also S2 looks great!

    I think 3.5 is a bit high but it'd be great. More likely to be in the mid to high 2mil, but definitely has great potential to reach 3mil and over.

    There was five times the buzz last year around this time for Gossip Girl, and it only premiered at 3.6 Million viewers. I doubt to see the ratings go up. Gossip Girl found a stable audience of 2.5 Million viewers. It all depends on what other shows people watch too. I watch Chuck over Gossip Girl, so I DVR it. A few pages ago somebody said we have 750k-1M viewers that DVR Gossip Girl. Those viewers could come back and watch it live. Gossip Girl has the potential of getting better numbers than it's getting, but I don't see that happening.

    Gossip Girls ratings are up!

    Gossip Girl pulled in 3.3 million viewers and was up "6% from its premiere last year in the adult demo (and up 10% among the network's key 18-34 demographic)."

    Longer article about the ratings.

    Not gonna happen! Most people watch GG online, even Smallville doesn't get 5mil, and they're the CWs top-rated scripted show.
