The Gossip On Gossip Girl
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show has been approved to begin staffing, which is a pretty good sign that it'll be announced as part of The CW's fall lineup come upfronts next Thursday.
I also keep hearing that Schwartz's NBC pilot, Chuck, has turned out really well, which could lead to a scenario where Josh helms TWO primetime shows in the fall. Is Josh the new JJ?
I don't know why I just asked that. But I hear that phrase kills on blogs: "Is ___ the new ___?" I'll throw a couple more your way. Is Honda the new BMW? Is Fruit of the Loom the new Armani? Is sleep the new sex? If you're thinking yes to all, then you might be impressed by a certain Sonny Lee that I know.
Anyway, I digress. I haven't seen the pilot, but I have read the script, and I'm fairly confident when I say that Gossip Girl will be the new OC. Do I feel weird being a 25 year old male that's excited about a show called Gossip Girl? Yes, a little bit. But get your iPods ready, we may have a new show to build playlists around.
In the meantime, I'll stick with the theme and leave a song by The Gossip:
