They may be biased sources, but Gossip Girl stars Chace Crawford and Penn Badgley (pictured here in character, as Dan Humphrey) are psyched about the premiere of their new show.

"I love the pilot I was really impressed with everything I mean there's not a dud aspect of the show. All the actors are phenomenal the show looks unbelievable and sound's great. The soundtrack is excellent," Crawford said.

Because Gossip Girl is based on Cecily von Ziegesar's book, many of the show's cast members feel pressure to live up to the expectations of the popular novel series. Fortunately, the guidance of Schwartz has made it easier for the cast to identify with the teen drama.

"He's such a normal cool guy. Josh [Schwartz] is so fun to hangout with. He's so relaxed and down to earth but he's hugely successful… He's the creator of The O.C. and he really knows what he's doing so it's really interesting to watch the dynamic on set and how he runs it because he comes from such a pedigree," Badgley said.

"I think the show is gonna stand out well on its own," Crawford added.

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
