It's a weird quirk because I watch neither of these shows, but I just never get sick of seeing the beatdown that MTV puts on the CW Monday nights.
From the CW press release announcing next season's schedule: GOSSIP GIRL was the most buzz-worthy show of last season and had the highest concentration of female teens of any series on broadcast television. GOSSIP GIRL will return to its 8:00-9:00 p.m.
Two notes: one, you'll note the careful use of the words "broadcast television", and of course as ever buzz-worthy, no doubt, but watch-worthy?
Once again, The Hills has more viewers in the coveted 18-34 demo than not only Gossip Girl, but Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill combined! I know GG fans love the show, and I know, I know everyone you know from Soho to Sigapore watches. And yeah, yeah, DVR, but DVR this: in the week of Gossip Girl's return from hiatus it had 743,000 watch via DVR , which isn't shabby considering its live base, but alas, The Hills had more with 1.068 million.
