  • Last night’s Gossip Girl (1.7 million viewers) stayed the same in the ratings compared to last week, making that two weeks in a row with a record-low. Meanwhile, Life Unexpected had a nice increase in ratings, which The CW (rightfully) bragged about in a press release, while also spinning GG’s numbers.

Weekly Poll

13 01 2010

In the last Weekly Poll, a decent majority–60 percent–said they hope Rachel stays in Tree Hill. Only 22 percent said they disagreed and 18 percent didn’t care either way. The results were tight on the question of Lily and Keith and what may or may not have happened between them. Thirty-four percent of respondents said Lily wouldn’t cheat on Rufus but 30 percent admitted they weren’t sure and can’t wait to find out. Twenty-six percent are convinced cheating did occur while 10 percent also said they weren’t sure but they’re not looking forward to finding out. We had a tie in the third question, with 26 percent saying Dixon shouldn’t look for his birth mom but 26 percent also saying they don’t care. Another 35 percent said he should while 13 percent said they were torn.





Weekly Poll

6 01 2010

In the last Weekly Poll, the majority of voters thought it was a happy medium for Haley to go on tour with Nathan and Jamie with her for part of the time. Many of you thought she deserved to go on tour regardless, while just two people said she should keep her family as the priority. Forty-seven percent said Blair and Chuck have had highs and lows this season but 31 percent say the luster is gone and 22 percent say their power is still just as strong. Only 3 votes separated the ays from the maybes on whether Kelly should be in more episodes. Just 10 percent, or 5 votes, were against it.





Weekly Poll

12 11 2009

A new feature: each week, after all 3 current teen dramas have aired, I’ll post 3 poll questions.

Vote away!
