Gossip Girl is an American drama television series based on the book series of the same name written by Cecily von Ziegesar. The series was created by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, and premiered on The CW on September 19, 2007. On February 24, 2009 The CW renewed the show for a third season.[1] Narrated by the omniscient yet unseen blogger "Gossip Girl", voiced by Kristen Bell, the series revolves around the lives of privileged teenagers attending an elite private school in New York City's Upper East Side.

The series begins with the return of Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) from a mysterious stay at a boarding school in Connecticut.[2] Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester), who creators describe as the queen at the center of their chess game,[3] is a longtime friend and occasional rival of Serena's, and the Queen Bee of Manhattan's social scene.[4] The story also follows Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick), the resident bad boy of the Upper East Side, Nate Archibald (Chace Crawford), Chuck's best friend, and certain outsiders who become part of the turbulent Manhattan scene: Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley), Nate's friend and Serena's on-again, off-again ex; Vanessa Abrams (Jessica Szohr), Dan's best friend; and Dan's ambitious sister Jenny (Taylor Momsen).[4][5]

On February 16, 2010, the CW renewed the show for a fourth season.

Episode format

Every episode begins with the blog page of the Gossip Girl blog with Serena's picture from the pilot episode. Afterwards a recap of events relevant to the upcoming narrative is shown, which ends again with the blog page, only this time with a picture from other character(s) with a text about a recent event connected with the picture.

The narrator is always Gossip Girl, voiced by Kristen Bell. She begins the recap with the sentence: "Gossip Girl here, your one and only source into the scandalous lives of Manhattan's elite,", and usually ends the episode with "X.O.X.O. Gossip Girl."

Cast and characters

Gossip Girl features ensemble cast of nine regular speaking roles which were mainly adapted from the book series. The first few episodes of the first season included the original concept from the books, mainly following the lives of the five teenage characters in their high school years. Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) is often described as an 'it girl'. It is revealed that she has had a scandalous past, that continues to haunt her, she is known for her many off-again relationships with the male characters and is known for rebellious drive outs. Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley), an outsider who becomes a part of the turbulent Manhattan scene, an aspiring writer and fairly straight-arrow guy with a good heart and morals. Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) is a beautiful Queen Bee of Manhattan's social scene, as well as Serena's best friend and occasional rival. Nate Archibald (Chace Crawford) is the perfect "Golden Boy" of the Upper East Side, always being fought over by the prominent female characters. Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) serves as the show's antihero, being a womanizer and party lover with a troubled life and past that provide a hidden vulnerable side.

Beside the five regulars mentioned above, three more characters appeared in the pilot episode. Jenny Humphrey (Taylor Momsen) is Dan's younger sister, who desperately tries to become the next Queen Bee, a goal that makes her realize the true values of life; Lily van der Woodsen (Kelly Rutherford) and Dan's father Rufus Humphrey (Matthew Settle), who share a romantic past that follows them throughout the show, and eventually leads to marriage.

Vanessa Abrams (Jessica Szohr), enters the show in its first season as Dan's past love, and becomes a series regular after the 14th episode. Other characters include Eric van der Woodsen (Connor Paolo) Serena's kind and compassionate brother, who comes out early in the first season and becomes very close with Jenny. Georgina Sparks (Michelle Trachtenberg) is an occasional antagonist in the show, with a recurring role. Carter Baizen (Sebastian Stan) appears as Chuck's enemy with a romantic interest in Serena.

Many characters appear as guest stars as parents and other relatives of the main cast. Eleanor Waldorf-Rose (Margaret Colin) and Harold Waldorf (John Shea) appeared as Blair's divorced parents, with Cyrus Rose (Wallace Shawn) as Eleanor's husband and Blair's stepfather. Dorota Kishlovsky (Zuzanna Szadkowski) plays Blair's loyal maid. Anne Archibald (Francie Swift) and Howard "The Captain" Archibald (Sam Robards) appear as Nate's estranged parents. While William van der Bilt I (James Naughton) and William "Tripp" van der Bilt III (Aaron Tveit) play Nate's manipulative grandfather and cousin, respectively. Bartholomew "Bart" Bass (Robert John Burke) has appeared as Lily's ex-husband and Chuck's demanding father. Celia "CeCe" Rhodes (Caroline Lagerfelt) appears as Serena's grandmother and Gabriela Abrams (Gina Torres) as Vanessa's mother.

Seasons

Season One: 2007-2008

Season 1 featured 18 episodes and began airing on September 19, 2007. However, due to the 2007-2008 Writers Guild of America strike, only 13 episodes were produced from the planned 22, but once the strike ended, the network announced five more episodes to be produced, and finally the season concluded on May 19, 2008. The season premiered with 3.5 million viewers,[6] and ended with 3.00.[7] Although the ratings were low the network renewed the show for second season due their aiming on male and female demographics on age 18-34.

In the beginning of the first season, the episodes focus on why Serena initially left. It is soon discovered that she felt an overwhelming guilt for sleeping with her best friend Blair's boyfriend Nate Archibald behind Blair's back. However, as the season progresses, Georgina Sparks, a new character with malicious intentions, comes back to haunt Serena. It is soon discovered that the real reason Serena left was because one night she and Georgina were hanging out in a hotel room after a night of drinking and partying. Things soon got out of hand when the man they were with asked for his cocaine and Serena gave the drugs to him. Immediately after, the man began having a seizure and the two girls panicked and ran away. Serena felt obligated to at least call 911 for help, and as she ran across the street in hiding, she saw that the man they were with had died. This is the full reason why Serena left because in the same night she had slept with her best friend's boyfriend and killed a man. Part of the main story arc also involves Serena's relationship with Dan Humphrey, an outsider from Brooklyn who she begins to date but has a rocky road with because of their different family backgrounds.

Other storylines include Blair breaking up with Nate and falling for his best friend Chuck Bass, which leads to her dethroning as Queen Bee; Jenny's training to become the next Queen Bee lead by Blair, which contribute to both of them later in the season beginning war for the throne; Nate's family problems; Lily's marriage with Bart Bass; Rufus' troubled marriage; Dan's relationship with Serena, which is interrupted by his former love Vanessa Abrams; and the friendship of Chuck and Nate.

Season Two: 2008-2009

Season 2 featured 25 episodes and began airing on September 1, 2008 starting at the end of the summer instead of the more conventional start in the fall along with larger TV networks. The season concluded on May 25, 2009. The season premiered with 3.43 million viewers,[8] similar to the first season and ended with 2.23, lower than expected.

The second season mainly explores the senior year of most of the characters, the continuity of their new found relationships, their final encounter with "Gossip Girl", and their attempts to get into college. The first couple of episodes feature part of the summer vacation, respectively week before the start of the school year. The role of "Gossip Girl" is slightly decreased. She continues to run her blog, but she keeps the ultimate information for herself, sending it in the final episode as the last blast, where Serena decides to find out who "Gossip Girl" really is, but ultimately fails.

The second season also focuses on Blair and Chuck, who were labeled "the heart of GG" by People magazine.[9] At first, both characters negate their feelings for one another, and go through random schemes and manipulations. After all the games are done, both of them eventually say "I love you" to each other. Other storylines include Blair's attempt to enter Yale University; the death of Bart Bass which proves to be a very bad influence on Chuck and the exploration of his involvements; Dan's transformation from outsider to insider and his relationship with Serena's teacher Rachel Carr; Serena's relationships after breaking up with Dan; Jenny's career as fashion designer and her rebellions which ultimately ends with her becoming the next Queen Bee; the end of Nate and Chuck's friendship and Nate's friendship with Dan; Nate's family problems which continue to grow and affect on his new found relationship with Vanessa; Rufus and Lily's relationship after Bart's death, their engagement, and revelation that they have a son; and Serena's involvement with Poppy Lifton, a secretive socialite that tries to steal money from Serena and her friends which ultimately leads to the return of Georgina Sparks, who claims to be changed but eventually decides to get revenge on Blair.

The penultimate episode of the season, "Valley Girls", was a backdoor pilot for a Gossip Girl spin-off series also titled Valley Girls. The series was set in 1983 and chronicled the teen years of the Gossip Girl character Lily van der Woodsen.

Season Three: 2009-2010

Gossip Girl's third season premiere aired on the CW on September 14, 2009. The cast began filming on June 29, 2009 in New York City and there will be only 22 episodes not the normal 25 from season two. Hilary Duff joined the show for a multi-episode guest arc in this season as Olivia Burke, a famous movie star who wants a normal college experience, and eventually starts dating Dan Humphrey. This character was inspired by real life actress Emma Watson's decision to attend university.[10]

Joanna García also joined the show for the first four episodes as Bree Buckley, an "evil Miss America" type from the Archibalds' rival family - she served as a love interest for Nate, until he found out she was just using him to get back at her cousin's fiancé Carter Baizen.[11] America's Next Top Model creator Tyra Banks appeared in the fourth episode as Ursula Nyquist, a larger than life actress, for whom Serena Van Der Woodsen temporarily works as a publicist. Also appearing in this episode was Sonya Harum, an up and coming actress, and designers Tory Burch and Georgina Chapman.[12] Also, Gina Torres got a recurring role as Vanessa's mother, Gabriela Abrams.[13]

Music group Sonic Youth made a guest appearance in the season's fifth episode, "Rufus Getting Married", where they played an acoustic version of their song "Starpower" at Rufus and Lily's wedding.[14]. The ninth episode of the season caused a significant amount of controversy. Parent groups urged the CW not to air the episode that contained a threesome. The preview for the episode revolved around an "OM3" theme. CW ignored these requests and announced that it was going to air the episode as planned. The show is also gaining more attention due to the fact that it is bringing in many new guest stars. Lady Gaga made an appearance in the episode "The Last Days of Disco Stick".

Caroline Lagerfelt also returned as Celia "CeCe" Rhodes (Lily's mother) in "The Treasure of Serena Madre" for Thanksgiving on the Upper East Side; causing a little trouble again between Lily & Rufus. Robert John Burke who played Chuck's father, Bart Bass, returned for A Christmas Carol themed episode in December, while Desmond Harrington will return to the show in spring, as Chuck's uncle, Jack Bass in episode 16.[15] Willa Holland, who played Jenny's model friend Agnes, confirmed on her Twitter account that she'll appear on Gossip Girl again.[16] Billy Baldwin has been cast as Dr. William van der Woodsen, Serena's and Eric's father, for the last three episodes of the season, starting in April.[17] Also, Laura Harring is guest-starring as Evelyn Bass (Chuck Bass' mother), but uses the alias Elizabeth (in the episode The Hurt Locket), towards the end of the season.[18] Finally, Michelle Trachtenberg is set to return for the season finale as Georgina Sparks.[19]

Season Four: 2010-2011

On Feb. 16, 2010, The CW announced it will bring the show back for a fourth season beginning in fall 2010.[20]

Reception

U.S. Nielsen Ratings

The first episode of the show was watched by 3.65 million viewers, coming in last place in its 9:00 p.m. timeslot on Wednesday nights.[21] Despite this, the show was noted to have held the best audience retention of America's Next Top Model in spite of a decline of 30% in the advertiser-craved 18-49 demographic and in total viewers.[22] The show wasn't able to cling to its viewers in its second outing, however, losing more than half of ANTM's audience and 22% of its own debut numbers in the face of strong competition from other shows such as ABC's Private Practice and NBC's Bionic Woman each of which made impressive debuts that night.[23] The third season is currently taking a dip in ratings with 4 episodes so far hitting below the 2 million viewer mark.[24]

Critical response

Gossip Girl poster featuring critical review

Gossip Girl initially received mixed reviews. Due to the show's pedigree as an adaptation of the New York Times bestselling novel series, the show was considered to be one of the more anticipated new shows of the 2007-2008 television season. An August 2007 survey by OTX, a global media research and consulting firm, placed the show on the list of top ten new shows that viewers were aware of.[27] Though the pilot was the recipient of positive reviews from publications such as Variety, Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle and the Boston Globe, other reviewers described it as a guilty pleasure rather than an hour's worth of must-watch television.[28][29][30][31] Metacritic gave it a score of 54, based on the reviews of 26 different publications.[32]

However, author Cecily von Ziegesar has expressed support for the show, noting that all of her major plot points were present in the pilot.[33] The Parents Television Council has shown particular criticism of the series, especially with its "OMFG" ad campaign from April 2008.[34] It also named the episode "Victor/Victrola" the worst television program of the week in which the episode originally was broadcast.[35] Quotes from the Parents Television Council review, as well as negative quotes from the San Diego Union-Tribune, New York Post and the Boston Herald, were used on various advertisements for the second season. The Hartford Courant chronicled a variety of negative responses to the ads. The ads included quotes like "Every Parent's Nightmare", "Mind-Blowingly Inappropriate" and "A Nasty Piece of Work" in what appears to be an effort to continue the 'rebellious teen' style of the show.[36]

As the show continued its first season, the response become considerably more positive, and by the second season critical response was favorable. Metacritic gave the new season an improved score of 71. "Summer's been good to this girl," claimed Entertainment Weekly, who awarded the series its highest grade of "A." [37] The New York Daily News claimed the show had found its footing by stating "It knows exactly what it wants and needs its new hybrid product to be. The hockey fights video of teen romance drama." Gossip Girl was designated the "Best. Show. Ever." in April 2008 by New York magazine.[38]

Toward the conclusion of the first season, Janet Malcolm of The New Yorker criticized the show for its deviations from the novels. She has stated that the series was, "related to the original only in the names and outlines of the characters." She further asserted that, "Without von Ziegesar's fast, mocking commentary to propel them, the TV episodes are sluggish and crass - a move from Barneys to Kmart."[39]

The PTC has had many problems with Gossip Girl over the years. In Season 1, for the underage drinking, drugs, and sex. Although it was milder in Season 2, the ads and the campaign to promote season 2 sparked much controversy. The campaign involved pictures of four of the main characters in controversial poses. The PTC's response to season 3 was stronger than ever. The ninth episode of the season included a sexual threesome that lasted through the 10th episode via a series of flashbacks. The PTC said this was, "[i]rresponsible and reckless".[citation needed]
