I am just barely out of teenhood myself, and I am disgusted that the CW would blatantly advertise this OM3 garbage, much less actually incorporate it into a plot.  What is especially upsetting to me is that the producers and writers for this show are obviously older than the target audience and feel comfortable putting this stuff on the air.  While I am not opposed to people having whatever kind of sex they want, this show REALLY puts the pressure on girls to skank out.

i think it’s ridic in the first place (gossip girl in general) but for the parenting group to make an uproar In My Humble Opinion makes it more intriguing for teens.

I think it’s up to parents to do the parenting not a television show!

There has always been inappropriate television shows but parents knew how to restrict their kids from watching it! And Gossip Girl has never hidden that it includes (drinking, drugs etc.)

@D.Marie – I think it’s admirable that you don’t let your girls watch this stuff!

I’ve only watched a couple episodes of this show and I think this would be a little much.  It’s obviously a desperate attempt to boost ratings, but if the show/writing/acting was a little better, they wouldn’t need to do these silly stunts.

@D.Marie I agree with you 100% – I think some people don’t realize how much that stuff matters and that they think everyone/thing else (school, tv, videogames etc.) will parent their children for them!

I watch the show…sad to say. I was in college when it first aired and was surrounded by sorority girls who grew up reading the books (I never even heard of them before). Anyway I was appalled by the sneak peak onto this weeks episode. I can’t believe they would put such a topic into a teen centered show. Frankly a lot of the subject matter of Gossip Girl is way to old for it’s targeted age group. It actaully reminds me of Sex and the City or some other shows, that were too hott for main stream TV, with all the sex, lies, drinking and drugs!

Exactly. Some of the parts they have cut out are bordering what is being written into the scripts of Gossip Girl…insane.

Honestly to me, the CW is all about shock value this year (and last)  Have you seen the promo prints for Melrose Place and 90210 (the new “hump” day, etc)  I do watch GG and Im ok with it though I think its unnecessary as well.  Its at a 9pm hour so its after “kids” TV and it does have the parental disclaimers.  I agree with others that its up to the parents to monitor what the kids are watching.  I used to watch Bevery Hills 90210 and Melrose Place (sometimes) with my mom and other than the occassional really bad moment when she would make me leave the room, it was fine.

Stopped watching the show after the first season….I did like the books, but they are completely different from the show…the show isn’t even based on the books anymore. Anyways…good for those parents who don’t let their teens watch it.

I agree with some PPs – if a show is inappropriate, it should be up to the parents to regulate what the kids watch.

Gossip Girl shows premarital sex regularly. What is so much worse about a threesome? I don’t get it.

I don’t watch Gossip Girl, but I know when I was MUCH younger than 13 my mom let me watch shows like Melrose Place and 90201 (the originals). I turned out just fine. Didn’t have sex til I was 17 (and even then didn’t start having it regularly til I was 18). I’ve never done drugs. Didn’t start drinking regularly til college. It’s not the responsibility of the TV show or the network to parent other people’s children. I’m sort of sick of parents blaming outside forces for “corrupting” their children.
