Q: Love the blog. Love the podcast. Glad you are back. As a man with an ear to the ground, do you hear anything on where/when CTV will be showing GOSSIP GIRL? Still not showing up on my TiVo and nothing on their website.
Oh CTV don’t screw me again…. (don’t even get me started on all the ways this network has played with my favourite shows – not showing the 2nd to last episode of FELICTY is my all time greatest grievance, but there are many, many, more!!)
For the TV Addict’s answer,
Thanks for the kind words, I think it goes without saying that, ‘the cheque is in the mail.’ But to answer your question, after emailing back-and-forth with the friendly folks in CTV’s PR department, all I have for you is this statement, “As soon as we have some news on GG… will be sure to let you know!”
For what it’s worth, here are my two cents on the situation. As a result of CTV’s commitment to the immensely popular DANCING WITH THE STARS, Canada’s Television Network will most likely get around to airing the five remaining episodes of GOSSIP GIRL paired with CANADIAN IDOL sometime this summer. Of course by then, resourceful Canadian fans of will undoubtedly discover a plethora of other ways to get their GOSSIP fix. Not the least of which includes watching it on the CW, which is available as part of both the Rogers and Bell cable packages.
If CTV were smart, they’d take the initiative by airing tonight’s episode on their CTV Broadband Network. Thus ensuring they keep their young web savvy GOSSIP GIRL demographic happy. That said, CTV’s never gone out of their way to keep their core audience of TV-obsessed fans particularly happy, so why start now.
