I'm sure Gossip Girl is not a big favorite on these boards, but I couldn't pass up sharing this from Advertising Age:
That's why we need The CW in HD.:sure:It's a universal truth that teens love to love the things their parents hate. In that vein, the CW has decided the best way to deal with parents' disapproval of its steamy teen shows is to use their denunciations as its latest marketing slogan.
The fledgling network, owned by Time Warner Inc. and CBS Corp., intends to run ads for "Gossip Girl" that use quotes from the Parents Television Council, an advocacy group that has criticized the program for its frank and candid depictions of teens having sex and using drugs. In one ad, to begin appearing Aug. 1, two of the teen characters are shown cuddling in bed together, below a blurb that reads "Mind-blowingly inappropriate!" -- and identified as being from the PTC. The new season of "Gossip Girl" makes its debut Sept. 1.
