While this TV Addict certainly appreciates the fact that the CW needs to do everything in its power to actually attract viewers to what’s quickly amounting to one of the most over-hyped/under-watched shows in the history of television. I can’t help but feel that the proverbial powers that be are going about it the wrong way.
Now admittedly, I’m no marketing guru. But releasing fifty plus photos in the hopes of generating buzz for GOSSIP GIRL’s second season premiere just seems like a bad idea. As the saying goes, “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?”
I mean take a look at these photos [above]. It doesn’t take THE BIG BANG THEORY’s Leonard or Sheldon to piece together the September 1st two-hour premiere’s major plot points. Heck, at this point I’m pretty sure even Penny would get the gist of it! In fact, I’d be willing to bet that if one took the time to print these photos and arrange them into a nifty little flip book, you’d have virtually the entire episode in the palm of your hands! Anyone have a few hours to kill? Let us know.
