While Chuck fought for a third-season renewal in 2009, Schwartz told The New York Times, “Chuck probably gets double the ratings of Gossip Girl.
Those early years of Dawson’s Creek, Felicity, Buffy, that whole period of stuff.” But those shows—all of which aired on the networks that merged to form The CW—were much more earnest than Gossip Girl. But Schwartz had an answer to that as well: I remember being a teenager extremely vividly, and the emotional traits of being a teenager are universal regardless of where you grew up or how much money you had.
Her character went on "indefinite hiatus" during the show's fourth season (as noted above), but did return for the grand finale.For most of the history of television, the barrier to syndication—and to profitability—has been 100 episodes. Still others just hung on as best they could and never posted numbers quite low enough to be canceled.The shows that have made it to that mark are an unusual group. In 100 Episodes, we examine the shows that made it to that number, considering both how they advanced and reflected the medium and what contributed to their popularity. ended in 2007, the show’s creator, Josh Schwartz, followed it up with two very promising but very different series.She went from an impressionable minion to the Queen Bee of Constance, but it wasn't built to last; after GG reveals that Jenny slept with Chuck, she's slut-shamed and banished to somewhere upstate (past the Bronx, even, we think).Jenny most encapsulated the crushing humiliation, joy and, well, more crushing humiliation of being a teenager, finally harnessing her ambition and talent into a clothing line (which is much cooler than a headband).In this edition, Gossip Girl, which ran for six seasons and 121 episodes between 20.

Then: Blair and Serena were no doubt the Upper East Side's main attraction, but poor little rich boys Nate and Chuck made for fun sideshows (and, at times, sidepieces).Nate broke Blair's heart, and then had his heart broken by Serena, while Chuck bedded every model and wannabe socialite above 60 Then: Brooklyn rebel Jenny Humphrey never quite fit in with the UES crowd — but that didn't stop her from climbing all the way to the top of those Met steps.Hey, Upper East Siders, ever wonder what happened to the scheming socialites and Gatsby-esque villains who seemed to always circle S and B?Well we know all their secrets, and we're totally here to tell!
