Gossip Girl Streams are Just Dreams

Gossip Girl Streams are Just Dreams

The CW announced on Thursday that the rest of this season’s episodes of Gossip Girl would not be made available online for streaming.

While Gossip Girl has been massively popular online at CWTV.com, the decision was made to broadcast the new episodes only on TV and for sale on iTunes.

Gossip Girl is an extremely important show for The CW and we feel it can be a signature breakout for its return,” says Paul McGuire, a CW spokesman.

“This is an experiment to see if this moves the [Nielsen ratings] needle at all.”

WILL YOU WATCH Gossip Girl on TV now that you can’t watch it online?

  • OMG

    ofcourse people are going to watch them on T.V otherwise you have to pay for them on itunes!!

    LOVE GG

    Chace is HOT…..Leighton is gorgeous…..BEST COUPLE!!

    xx

  • RC

    F3ck I have no tv therefor I am screwed!!!

  • DK

    We don’t get episodes of GOSSIP GIRL in Denmark. But if we did I would definently watch it. Leighton Meester is GORGEOUS!

  • Cindy

    Yes, I will watch on TV.

  • Jess

    we only just started the season of gossip girl in uk, i watched them all online that really sucks *cry*

  • missy

    no!!!!

    how can i see the premiere of the episodes????

    that is one bad move…

    tsk2

  • ~m~

    im hoping they will still be on youtube because the US is the only place that gets that CW (as far as i know) so everywhere else is screwed
    im Canadian and since the strike, the channel that usually shows it in Canada is not showing it in the next little while so i really hope somebody will put them on youtube (and that they won’t get taken down because of copyright or whatnot – stupid google buying out youtube grr)

  • farhana

    does that mean we can’t watch it on youtube? they only started the first season in the uk which i’ve already watched!!

  • Kara

    I think this is a great idea!

    There are many other streaming sites available to watch GG that were available before too. People will find a way to watch it…But there were probably be some of those people who were just to lazy to turn on the TV which will now do so….If anything the ratings will increase or stay the same. Not go down.

    Over 50% of the hits on the CW streaming site are just for GG and the first 13 episodes had over 6 million hits so if even only half of them swtiched to TV..think of how much the ratings would increase!

    THREE MORE DAYS till GG returns (MONDAY April 21st at 8PM on CW…watch LIVE)!!!!

    Also Canadians CAN get CW by either Rogers or satellite. CTV is the stupidest network ever (it has “no room on its schedule”…ugh. I guess that happens when you pick you hog 75% of all teh US shows on one network instead of giving them to other canadian networks…). HOwever, I heard that they are trying to find another Canadian network to pick up the show…most likely to happen. (I’m hoping Global or Citytv because they less likely to do what CTV enjoys doing….messing with show’s schedule, stop airing, then airing at later date, etc….This is not the first time CTV did this (same thing happneed with Gilmore Girls, Felicity, Everwood, list goes on….)

  • nurul

    OMG. NO. They don’t have GG here in Asia yet. Bummer.

    Why would they want to do such a thing. It’s gaining fans from all over!

  • Pauline

    that sucks for those who don’t live in the US.

    Otherwise, we have to wait one year, sometimes more to see the new season.

    I just can’t get interested in this show

  • Stephie

    People will be able to watch it on youtube it depends on how many people are willing to record them and upload them online.
    I will defenately watch it on TV and buy them on iTunes!
    LOVE GG!

  • http://myspace.com/luckyrabbitk87 Kate

    big whop. i can still download it online, lol. it just mean the videos probably won’t be on their official website for ppl to watch.

  • http://fashionchalet.blogspot.com erika

    Since it comes on in the middle of dinner I will probably be going to iTunes for it….. only 5 episodes are left anyway.. :) so it’s OK!

  • Katherine

    well obviously!

  • bex

    I would watch it if I were able to be home at that time. I could be home, but I would have to fail a class and I am not in a position to do it. Although it doesn’t often take them long to end up on Youtube so I can just watch them there.

  • alex

    im sure u can find another website to find the episodes on..plus dont forget thers always youtube!!
    and as much as i love and live for this show/lifestyle??, some of the actors on the show look a little too old to be in high school…dont u think? but thats whut makes it even better! that they all look so mature and even act like it….well some of them atleast

  • amy

    Omgoshhh.., people won`t want it anyways if they can`t
    CW are just trying to profit caz iTune is complaining no one is buying
    but who cares you can still download it from other places
    like i have all the episodes from this season caz my friend downloaded

  • lily

  • xxxxx

    ^there are many gossip girl fan sites just google them and i’m sure most of them will have it under promo pics.

    please please please people put it on youtube i dont live in the us either and i’ll die if i cant watch it

  • :]]]]]

    people please WATCH GOSSIP GIRL on mondays, so the show can get high ratingsss! pleaseeeee, its awesomeeee :]

  • whitney123

    no. this is the dumbest move they could have made. what about people who have to work later and the only way they can watch it is the next day…online? i dont want to have to pay for something that i should be able to watch for free. pretty much it sucks that i wont be able to watch it anymore. TT

  • Where to buy new episodes???

    Hey does anyone know when the new episodes will be available to buy on itunes??? Blair Bitch Project and Desperately Seeking Serena are still not available to buy.

  • lonestarmama

    I don’t own a television, and I don’t intend to buy one and subscribe to a cable service just for one show… so I guess my Gossip Girl days have come to an end.

  • http://none Phil

    Nope. I have watched every single episode online. I am out doing things at night, not glued to my tv. I guess I’ll stop watching or download the torrent.

  • Valerie

    No, because I watched it on line because it airs at a horribly inconvient time for me. Every TV show I watch is viewed online. If they don’t put them up, I just won’t watch. Their loss.
