(S03E01) "Welcome back, Upper Eastsiders." - Gossip Girl

Our favorite backstabbing, lying, messed-up and cheating characters are back for a third season of more drama, mysteries, backstabbing, lying and cheating!

A few weeks have passed since the season's finale events, and the season premiere gives us a rundown on where each character stands while introducing new character Bree, played by Privileged's JoAnna Garcia, and featuring returns from Scott and Carter, both recurring throughout the first half of the season and maybe more.

Did the Gossip Girl premiere deliver the goods? My take on it coming up!

I'm not quite sure what's happening in these scenes, but everyone is really pretty, aren't they? Here are two clips from the September 14 season premiere of Gossip Girl.

Kristin over at E! has three more clips (and, no, I don't understand why the videos play like that either).

Give These TV Stars A Show Already!

by Andrew Scott, posted Aug 12th 2009 5:00PM
Scott FoleyNews broke that Scott Foley of 'The Unit,' which was axed last May, will guest on an upcoming episode of 'Law & Order: SVU.'

It's a shame, though, that Foley isn't moving to a new show full-time, because we think he deserves another chance.

That got us thinking: What are some other TV stars in need of a comeback?

We took a look at some of the best canceled shows from last season ('Privileged!' 'Pushing Daisies!') and selected six stars we'd love to see land on new series. Check out our picks below.

TV Squad Ten: Series that should be renewed

by Isabelle Carreau, posted May 1st 2009 5:40AM
ReaperLast week, TVSquad readers made our "Which shows are renewed, canceled, or on the bubble?" post the most viewed and most commented of the week. Most of the commenters voiced their opinions as to which show should be renewed, and since I also watch loads of TV, it's with no surprise that I wanted to chime in, as well. (Look for my "Series that I think should be canceled" post later this week.)

Here I present you, the 10 shows I think should be renewed. Note that I did not include in this list shows that have been confirmed as renewed by the network (such as Gossip Girl), nor those that have been officially canceled (bye bye Pushing Daisies).

If you just want the list, click here.

Michael Cassidy leaves Privileged

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Dec 29th 2008 5:03PM
Michael CassidyA lot of casting news lately has been about series regulars departing their series. Today's announcement is no different. Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello just announced that Michael Cassidy, whom we've grown to love or hate -- depending on whether you were rooting for Summer and Seth to be together in the end -- as Zach Stevens on The O.C., will depart The CW's Privileged.

Since his stint on The O.C. ended, Cassidy appeared in a few movies and The CW series. He played character Cliff Wyatt on the canceled-rather-fast CW series Hidden Palms and guest starred in a multi-episode arc on Smallville as Grant Gabriel, a.k.a. a cloned and aged version of Julian Luthor.

Wonder why, when and how he will depart Privileged? Answers, including tiny spoilers about the series, are coming up after the jump!

Privileged: Pilot (series premiere)

by Paul Goebel, posted Sep 9th 2008 10:23PM

Joanna Garcia(S01E01) In the first five minutes of this show, viewers are treated to a visual definition of the phrase "fish out of water."

I generally don't like any comedy that starts out with the the main character losing everything and starting her life all over again. In a drama, it kind of works that the hero has to go from town to town searching for something she lost. In a comedy, it just means that we'll be spending the next half hour watching the hero say things like, "What did I get myself into?"

CW announces an early Fall premiere schedule

by Kona Gallagher, posted Jul 19th 2008 8:35PM
When you're a ratings-challenged fledgling network like the CW, you're going to do anything you can to get a leg up on the competition. Releasing sex-filled advertisements for your most high-profile show is a good start, but that alone won't get the job done. To that end, the CW has just announced that it's moving its fall premiere dates up to September 1st, well ahead of the beginning of the traditional broadcast season.

The idea behind the move is that you're already going to be hooked on Gossip Girl and Top Model by the time the other networks get around to premiering their fall shows, sometime around mid-to-late September. The season isn't the only thing the CW is starting early, however. Starting in November, they're also extending prime time, with original programming beginning at 6:30 on Sunday nights.

Check out CW's full premiere schedule after the jump.

Anne Archer taking over Privileged role

by Erin Martell, posted Jun 25th 2008 8:39AM
Anne ArcherAnne Archer has joined the cast of the new CW series Privileged. She'll be replacing Marsha Mason in the role of Laurel Limoges, a wealthy Palm Beach resident raising her orphaned granddaughters. Mason appeared in the drama's pilot episode. Privileged is the series' newest title. At different stages it was called How to Teach Filthy Rich Girls and, in the network's recent upfront, Surviving the Filthy Rich.

The drama begins with twentysomething Megan Smith (played by Joanna Garcia) unexpectedly getting hired by Laurel Limoges to tutor the woman's teen granddaughters. Laurel is a widow whose fortune comes from a successful cosmetics empire.

Only 344 days left until Lifetime's next Christmas movie

by Jason Hughes, posted Jan 22nd 2008 3:29PM
Joanna GarciaYou might want to make a note of this because it's gonna be a long time before you see it. Lifetime wants us to know there's been some major casting done on their holiday-themed movie A Very Merry Daughter of the Bride. Luke Perry, JoAnna Garcia, Helen Shaver and Kenneth Welsh have all jumped on board the film, which is cleverly scheduled to air in December 2008. I wish they'd give me a date because I really need to schedule a hair appointment that night.

It looks like it's the story of a daughter (Garcia) who disapproves of her mother's (Shaver) upcoming nuptials and so enlists the groom's (Welsh) son (Perry) to try and persuade the pair to not wed. But the groom's son is Luke Perry, and this movie's on Lifetime so I think we all know what happens. And then Judith Light makes a cameo appearance as an empowered woman who survived an abusive past to become a stronger person (Okay, not really but you believed me for a minute there). I'm ashamed to admit it, but I'm weeping a bit right now just thinking about how touching it all is. I mean trying to break up your parents' wedding; what spells H-O-L-I-D-A-Y-S better than that!
