Strong word-of-mouth has earned CW newbie, Gossip Girl, a full-season order. The Josh Schwartz (Chuck) series is a perfect replacement for those who loved his last production, The O.C. The show stars Blake Lively (The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) as Serena van der Woodsen, a girl who returns to her vicious private school after mysteriously leaving town. Leighton Meester plays Blair Waldorf, Serena’s former best friend and current frenemy.
The catty series has so far proven to be a much darker version of our typical teenage dramas (imagine The O.C. plus Heathers). And with voyeuristic narration supplied by the anonymous ‘gossip girl’, things get to be so much cattier.
For those who have not yet watched the series, it’s not too late. The first two episodes are currently hot iTunes downloads. Once you get yourself caught up, you can find Gossip Girl on Wednesdays @ 9pm on The CW. I promise you—the backstabbing here is much more exciting than that Private Practice/Bionic Woman battle. Plus - you’ll come to learn valuable fashion lessons. Had I not watched last week, how would I have known that blue eyeshadow was back?

Despite having a Tivo and another DVR, I know that a new television season can take some serious planning. When will your favorite shows start? What days are they now on? Which programming ‘conflicts’ will you have to resolve? Will you need to buy another TV???
Hopefully our detailed scheduling guide can assist you in the weeks to come. We have compiled information from five different networks (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX and CW) and included the days, times and premiere dates for this fall’s shows.
As we mentioned earlier, the new series Anchorwoman revolved around a small TV station’s desperate attempt to garner ratings. KYTX of Tyler, TX knew that hiring an inexperienced buxom blonde would bring them attention—and figured they had nowhere to go but up.
While it’s too soon to say if Lauren Jones was worth the station’s gamble, the network has already determined the price was too high. After only one episode, Fox has pulled the plug. But those truly interested by the show’s content can still see the remaining four episodes via Fox’s website.

Tired of reality shows that try to have some sort of class? Want your trashy TV to be up front and bold? Check out Anchorwoman, a new reality series from none other than FOX. Struggling KYTX in Tyler, Texas needs ratings. What better way to get them than to hire a blonde, babealicious bombshell? Enter Laruen Jones, model, WWE Diva-wannabe, and ditzy hottie – and let the reality TV begin.
Okay, so she doesn’t have any experience with the news. No big deal…right? From the fast paced party scene of LA, Lauren arrives in the small Texas town with a tank top, stilettos, and an apparent burning desire to become an Anchorwoman. Horror-stricken, her new co-workers look on with confusion and concern. Existing anchor for the station Annalisa Petralia expresses her own feelings clearly – dislike, immediate and absolute. Petralia’s opinion of Lauren isn’t good, saying that the sexy blonde undermines the station’s credibility and her own personal reputation. The station manager does his best to mediate, gently suggested to Jones that she go get her jacket (cleavage doesn’t read too well on the evening news).
