Gossip Girl > The Aftermath: Gossip Girl Producers Speak on 100th Episode, Seek to Quell Riot > Comments Page 3
A joke is a joke. In the words of Heath Ledger's Joker, "Why so serious???"
It was a comment that the text had to point out, twice, that he wasn't actually insulting Chair fans. However the interview does point out, no matter what side of the coin you fall on, there's still a heated debate and viewership 100 episodes in.
After reaching 100 episodes, it's almost guaranteed a next season; syndication will defray costs of the next season regardless of viewership. Once a show hits that 100 mark, it's almost unlikely a network would allow its cancellation, as another "new" season will help the previous seasons be shopped at other networks. Given that the show's ranking was at #196 during its first season, yet improved in rankings despite a drop in viewership over the years(ended season 4 with #139), means that CW still believes in its viability, and now that it's at its centennial, the show will still line CW exec's coffers.
I understand why so many people criticize this show all the time but then tune in every Monday...? If you have such a big problem with this show then stop watching it or continue watching it and shut up.
This is just a combination of lazy writing and appeasement. In one episode Blair professed love to Chuck, ran off with Dan, and married Louis. It's pretty absurd even for Gossip Girl. Blair was so different before. She was a girl who went after what she wanted; she was ruthless, ambitious, and a romantic. Now she's making all kinds of concessions every which way. It's hard to watch her character unravel.
This people are trying to sink their own show. Seriously, insulting the fans now? Even as a joke, it's insulting. And people, from what I see Schwartz made the joke, not Safran (they have the same name, so it's understandable some people got confused), but in any case I always new Schwartz was no better than Safran, that's why I'm not vouching for him to return to this show like some are doing, I mean this guy sanked The O.C. for crying out loud!
Tate : Obviously the writers are more affected by the comments and the twitter attacks then they make it seem. The obvious proof of that is the fact that Chair still has some disgusting I love you but can't be with you scenes every two episodes! Stop trying to please the fans do what you want and we'll get by without the Charios locos!
This season I think has been one of the best seasons of the show and there's a lot of creative vibrancy to the show and you want to go out on top creatively.
AHAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHHAHAHHA what a joke
Tate doesnt care if the show ends are not it will be a win win situation for him/her because she or he knows we wont get are chair being happy together which is something dair fans all want. which is for chair to end and to never end up together.and im pretty Tate doesnt even care if dair end up together or not as long chair dont him/her will be happy.
The ratings are already low, if all Chair fans stopped watching the show wouldn't survive. According to every poll Chuck/Blair fans are very much the majority out of all ships.
No offense Josh Schwartz but you should be grateful that fans care so much for your show, that they get so invested into your characters, they tell you what they honestly think should happen. You shouldnt be complaining any kinda of publicity is good for this show. Why the heck would you want to upset a huge fanbase and then go and make a comment like that to fuel even more anger, are you trying to get people not to wacth your show? It certainly sounds like it.
@Tate which season do u think was the best 1,2,3,4,or 5 so far?
@Tate and they way your acting is mature and not childish like right now?
If all chair fans quit watching the show, we'll survive. Atleast we won't have some idiot viewers who have manner issues. Dear child, just go to school I'm sure you'll get what you deserve. All chair fans attacking writers at twitter is such a dick move. Poor you, how pathetic is that? Lmfao!
@Chair can never be lovers only friends
Your ship is dead SO LONG TIME AGO. You just don't have the guts to admit it to yourself because firstly you're a die hard fangirl of this ship and lastly you're dying to tap Ed Westwick's ass. Let me tell you that Dan and Blair story is the only refreshing in the show and so with Georgina. If Dan and Blair pairing didn't come up to its context I'm sure the show is dead with repetitive CB interaction plots and stories? What could be the next thing Chuck would do after he traded Blair for a hotel? Hm, probably gang rape her? Make her a total wreck? Sounds very entertaining.. NOT. Well that's all for now, ta ta.
Best season ever??!!? What has he been smoking?? Cause I'd really like to go through life with that kinda high.
Dear Dair fans,
Your ship is dead before it even started. They did not make sense romantically in the past gg seasons and they deff don't make sense now. The moment that blair says "i love u humphrey" to dan will be then end of the show for good.
and just when i thought this show can't get any worse dair becoming best friends proved me wrong.
This is the best season of the show? HAHAHA! Definately not.
Did one of the show's producers just gloat about pissing off a big segment of the show's fanbase?
What a tool.
The Chuck-and-Blair spark was the only reason I got hooked on this show in the first place. I'm not kidding when I say I rarely watch TV - but I watched this.
Now I don't.
I'm not wasting any more time on a dying tv show whose producer is such an arrogant jerk. I'd say the same if he'd cackled about baiting Dair fans. I'm no longer interested in the outcome of the show. It's obviously just a joke to the producers and writers. Yes, they can do what they want, but so can I. I'll avoid any show touched by Josh Schwartz in the future. He apparently can't make a show last with any quality for more than 2 seasons and has zero respect for the fans.
I hope this show doesn't see a 6th season. It'd be a mercy to let it die this year.
If something does go down with Dan and Blair can Chuck please MOVE ON. He deserves more than just pining away on the sidelines for someone who jumps from man to man to man. I hope they give him his own storyline. Either a love interest of his own or something to do with the Empire.
As much as I dislike "Dair" it will provide entertainment (the unintentially funny kind) as you see the writers try to force them into making a believable romantic couple. I'll certainly laugh at the attempt.
The only reason I watch GG is for Chuck and Blair. If the writers want to go down the route of Blair and Dan, I won't watch. What's the point? It's so contrived and the two don't have any chemistry aside from friendship.
These writers keep saying they want to write something with some depth, stuff that's character driven and not plot driven. Well if you want to go that route, have Chuck and Blair find each other again in a healthy and exciting way. This marriage to Louis and the "anvils" of Dan and Blair are just more lame story telling. These writers need to get over themselves for a second. If they can't, I'm done with the show.
To what Josh Schwartz said about the Chair fans, while he may have been joking, you don't piss off fan bases like that. Talk about classless. You think he would learn the business by now. Oh well. Guess he wants to lose what little fanbase is left.
this episode was really fucking lame
just let chuck and blair be or at least make their story line better
i'm quite of what the writers keep doing to them and i did not appreciate that stupid joke
To that, Co-EP Josh Schwartz teases, jokingly: "Plus, we really just wanted to piss off those Chair fans so they don't destroy my Twitter feeds on a weekly basis."
Actually Mr. Schwartz the joke is on you, I hope no 'Chair shippers' will watch the show anymore.
I surely won't because Blair and Dan together make me puke and I've had quite enough.
For the people trashing chair...STFU. Ok you ship another couple,but what is the point in saying chair is over , chair is destroyed ,ummmm what are you talking about ? They just said that chair is by no means over . Where in this article does it say chair is done? , can you people not read ? I usually don't care about what people say but I am so over dair fans insulting chair and saying unessecary shit . Since some of you can't respect other people's ship I won't respect your's.
I was so happy that Dan was there for her; she has learned that her true friends are completely selfless.
We could see that Serena was even playing up Chair to keep Dan to herself. Regardless, Blair is becoming more like herself. Just because her husband is a prince doesn't mean she will allow him to control her. And I'm happy Chair is out of the picture; Chuck always does what he wants and never what Blair wants.
OH PLEASE GIVE ME A BREAK!!!
serena cares about blair's happiness. she has always tried to help chuck and blair find their way. chuck has also changed this season (maybe u were to caught up in all of the dair, pathetic, scenes to even realize he has become a better person)
And lastly, CHAIR is never out of the picture ;)
blair ran off with dan because they are friends! nothing more. she needed her friend and she called him. chuck and serena are probably going to think that something is going on between the two of them but dair won't happen. why would the writers make dair happen (during this season) when they were concentrating so much on chuck and blair. chair is endgame and all of u dair fans no that.
if chair is not endgame.. i wasted 5 years of my life waiting for those two to have a happy ending...
Joyce, Blair's unraveling this season had NOTHING to do with Chuck.
Oh, I forgot. Everything that happens on the UES in the GG universe is Chuck Bass' fault. LOL!
(Lord, in your great mercy, PLEASE bring on Dair within the next 1-2 episodes so that these folks can be canon. I can't even... please, let someone else's ship be in the spotlight for a change.)
(And, while you're at it, send Chuck and Serena to Ibiza or Bali or something for a nice long vacation. Make sure they've got lots of eye candy and mai tais. After these 13 eps, they deserve it.)
Look, it's not JUST about Blair not being herself. The show isn't super awesome any more -- there aren't any big group scenes, there aren't any laughs, there aren't any gasps, there's not any heat, there's just unhappiness and woe and angst.
I am bewildered that some here think their ship should happen BECAUSE Chair is so terrible and unhealthy. That's not a reason for her to jump into a relationship with Dan or anyone else!!!
At this point, I want Dair to happen just so that the same writers who screwed up each and every other ship on the show (including the ship I'd waited 3 seasons for, Danessa) will get their hands on it. Bring it on, and let's hope the payoff for that fanbase has been worth it.
And, in the meantime, I'm with those who want Chuck to be happy with someone else. Bring Eva back, or a new girl, and let him be a new and improved "I'm Chuck Bass." LOL!
