CW Gets Good Gossip, Bad News

Posted by Amy with 5 Comments

Take that, Wall Street Journal.

On the same day the nation’s leading business newspaper reported that time may be running out for the CW, the network went on to score its biggest second-biggest Monday night. Ever. In its two-year history. Among viewers named Ashley who like venti decafs, except on Fridays when they favor grande chais aged 18 to 34.

Well, anyway, it’s something.

And, actually, the season finales of One Tree Hill and Gossip Girl needed no qualifications. Per the CW, they provided the network with its most-watched Monday of the season, and its best Monday performance in its aforementioned two-year history among prized young adults, aged 18-49.

But because the CW is committed to even-younger adults, it was the 18-34 stat that the network trumpeted above all today.

Yesterday, it was the Wall Street Journal reporting that advertisers had “cooled” on the network, that “at least” one of its owners was ready to bail, and that next season could be its last.

The CW, a joint venture between CBS and Warner Bros., which was formed out of the demise of the WB and UPN, launched in the fall of 2006. Though it was formed by addition, the math hasn’t added up for the CW. Instead of pooling the WB’s and UPN’s audiences, it essentially lost one of them. Where the WB and UPN were drawing a combined 6 million viewers in their final season, the CW averaged about 3 million in its first season.

With just days to go in this season, the CW is down to 2.6 million. And it’s losing, not gaining, ground among 18- to 34-year-olds.

Next season, the CW will go with its most narrowly focused, cable-esque lineup yet, zeroing in on young females, aged 18-34, with its Beverly Hills 90210 update, and returning shows such as Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill and America’s Next Top Model. Overall, it’ll program five nights a week, having originally spurned Saturdays, and having recently turned Sundays over to an outside company.

In the Journal, CBS and Warners execs didn’t sound thrilled with the CW’s struggles, but they didn’t sound any direct threats, either.

If nothing else, the CW will always have Monday. Gossip Girl averaged an estimated 3 million viewers, way up over its season average. One Tree Hill also closed strong, with an estimated 3.2 million.

It’ll also have Sunday’s New York Times, which published a think piece on Gossip Girl.

Memo to Serena and pals: Renew Times; cancel Journal.

Episode 18 What Comes After the Blues Quotes

Posted by Amy with 27 Comments

I’ll be adding more later and add in the comments if you get it before me.

Lucas’s dedication: …to all those lost souls who have forgotten to believe in the immensity of love.

Brooke: You got my message? I told you not to come.
Lucas: I know.
Brooke: She’s gone, Luke.
Lucas: I know.

Jamie: It’s kinda like he has a tail. Just on his head.

Thanks, Leyton=TLA for the next few ones…

Haley: First we’re gonna fix the ferret above your face.

Nathan: By the way, nobody’s sporting the faux-hawk anymore, dude.
Jamie: I’m bringing it back!

Nathan: Hey look it’s my mom doing the walk of shame… out with the guy you met on a porn site?
Deb: Not porn… Erotica!

Quentin: My god! What the hell was that?
Nathan: I’m gonna do this!

Lucas: I don’t hate you. I remember the first time I ever saw you. Long skinny arms, and a tangled mess of hair. It was hard letting you go, Peyton. You know, it’s hard losing you and it was hard seeing you again. It’s still really hard.
Peyton: When I’m asleep, I have this dream where we’re back in the hotel room in LA and you propose to me and every single time I say yes.
Lucas: It’s just a dream right?
Peyton: It’s my dream.

Lindsey: Hey, Luke, I just got your dedication and I guess I’m one of those lost souls because I lied to you. I said I was seeing someone and I wasn’t. The truth is, I was afraid of the immensity of your love and that thought. I just wanted you to know. You asked me if I miss you. Of course I miss you. It’s all I do.

Brooke: I don’t like you guys to see my like this…vulnerable.
Lucas: It’s how I always see you, Brooke. That and you’re beautiful.

Brooke: Hey, Luke. We’ve been through a lot me and you but I wouldn’t have made it through today or a couple other days without you so thanks. This is for you. I love you, Lucas Scott, you know that?
Lucas: I love you too, Brooke Davis.

Haley: You know what? You still make my heart race. You do, I’m serious, feel this. My heart is so full of pride and love and joy because of you.

Haley: You know that romantic notion that all the garbage and the pain is really healing and beautiful and sort of poetic? It’s not. It’s just garbage and it’s pain. You know what’s better? Love. The day that you start thinking that love is overrated is the day that you’re wrong. The only thing wrong with love and faith and belief is not having it.

Jamie: I’m James Lucas Scott! (jumps in the pool)

Episode 18 What Comes After the Blues Reaction

Posted by Amy with 359 Comments

Honestly, I’m not happy right now.  I was so hoping the cliffhanger was Dan and not Lucas’s call but here we sit with BOTH OF THEM being the cliffhanger.  Before I go off on a tangent, let me get to it.

  • Jamie and Gavin were so cute singing that song.  Sorta pointless, but cute nonetheless.
  • Brooke having to give up Angie was so very sad and unfortunately almost put to the side.  I was surprised at how littel was shown about that.  Not really sure what I expected but Brooke handed her off pretty quickly and Lucas only showed up long enough to walk out the door.  His speech to her at the apartment was sweet though.  Them saying I love you was definitely friendship as far as I can tell but it was very nice.
  • Nathan and Jamie both facing their fears and then seeing them pull through at the end was awesome.  It was fan. tastic. seeing Nathan playing ball again.  I really missed that.  Them playing in the pool was so cute.  I love her and Nathan talking at the very end.  We got a smidgen of Naley and I loved it.
  • Deb and Skills. Ew.  That is all.
  • Mouth and Millicent…I’m sorry, they are cute together.  Really.  But they could move to Omaha and no one would know the difference.  Great job on the sportscasting though, Mouth.
  • It was so. good.  to see Haley back in Lucas’s room.  After watching Season 1 again this weekend, it was just nice seeing them together.  Haley and Peyton too.  I think I had forgotten after this season how good of a friend Haley was to Peyton and it was good to see Haley rooting for both of them.
  • As for the cliffhangers…
  • Dan was almost evil Dan again with that pillow wasn’t he?  Not so shocked on the car accident but WOW the pager beeping was definitely a shocker.  Wonder if he gets the heart?

As for Lucas/Lindsey/Peyton…

Not happy that Lindsey went to see Lucas in person. She KNOWS how much Lucas is still wanting her and then she wants to come see him just so he can remember how much he misses her.  And then for her to walk out when he asks if she misses him?  That was just cruel.  And what in the heck does the book say??  How does it end?  She knows it’s the “perfect ending” so does that have something to do with her phone call to him?
OK, so how did Lucas know to go to the RiverCourt?  Did I miss something?  His reaction was great…loved that little smile.
And that leads Lucas to go see Peyton.  I liked his speech.  I get that he’s always loved her and it was hard and it’s still hard. But I was left wanting more.  Once again, Peyton is left crying, dreaming of her and Lucas again.
Lucas’s dedication was nice.  I liked that it came from him and Haley’s conversation.  It was sweet when Lindsey read it.  Her calling Lucas was nice but wouldn’t THAT be important to say in person??  I just lied to you and sent you on a binge?  Not happy with that.

So Lucas makes the decision to leave and go to Vegas…the big question is who does he take?

My first instinct was LP is dead and he’s taking Lindsey.  But two things have me clued into that it might be Peyton.  Number one is the text message to Lindsey.  It talks about those that have lost their way with love and thinking back to his book when he talks to his love being reawakened, I think it’s talking about Peyton there.  Also, I have a suspicion that Lucas did not receive Lindsey’s voicemail.  So it’s Lucas and Peyton off to Vegas but do they really get married?  Is this where the makeout session happens?  What happens when he does get Lindsey’s voicemail if he in fact didn’t get it?
