Gossip Girl Ratings Disappoint

at . Comments

According to the Nielsen ratings, just 2.44 million viewers tuned in to "The Blair Bitch Project" (the return of Gossip Girl) - only slightly better than its last original episode, which aired January 9.

However, these Gossip Girl ratings did help The CW score its highest ratings ever in the Monday 8-9 p.m. time period among total adults ages 18-34 (1.9/6) and specifically women 18-34 (2.9/8).

What did taking down streams of new Gossip Girl episodes online do for the show's audience? Apparently, not a lot. Hopefully, these ratings continue to grow. Tell your friends about Gossip Girl

I think that Monday is a really bad time to have the show air. If it moved to Wednesday then I think more people would watch it. I would be really sad to see this show go off the air completley and I would be really suprised considering the fact that their has been so much media coverage on the cast. but then again, maybe because the original fans only had a few episodes to get into it and then we had the writer's strike, people lost interest after not seeing it continue for a while...

The move to Monday is a bad thing. I for one have other shows on Monday, that have been on for a lot longer than Gossip Girl. Sorry, but I'm not willing to give up How I Met Your Mother and Bones.

I think it was dumb to take the show offline. Wasn't the
whole point of that 3 month writers strike to pay writers
for their material being viewed online? Kinda defeats the
purpose.

I live in Canada and lucky for me, we have the CW coming in from New York. But most people don't and Gosspi Girl has stopped playing on the Canadian channel - I know a lot of my friends were very dissapointed that they couldn't watch it on Monday!

I think that more people would watch if they moved it back to wednesday night. monday's at 8 are not convienent for a lot of people/ even people I know can't watch it now cause of the time. I think they should either change it back or have it on 2 nights

Hm. Maybe if we could get people to watch this one minute 'highlight reel',
we'd get more people to tune in? http://www.236.com/news/2008/0...
