Here's some great news:
Word around town is that The CW has ordered the back nine episodes of Gossip Girl, making the primetime soap the first freshman show of the fall to get a full-season order.
The series was one of the first shows to premiere last month and has scored solid Nielsen digits in its three-week run. Numbers have been further boosted by just-released DVR data showing ratings for the premiere increased 9% when including recording viewings of the show that take place six days after its first broadcast.
Gossip Girl has also been a hit on iTunes, with two episodes of the show ranking in the service's top five most downloaded TV episodes.
