Soundbite: Gossip Girl Threesome Is A Loving And Natural Part of Growing Up

Screen shot 2009-11-09 at 8.29.56 AM

“This story is organic to the characters and it’s handled in a responsible way.”


Dawn Ostroff, President of Entertainment at the CW Network, justifying tonight’s threesome episode on Gossip Girl. Please let it not be Rufus, Lily and Eric.

Tonight on Gossip Girl: Triple your pleasure! In a show that has featured high school sex, college sex, Jitney sex, limo sex, art gallery sex, grudge sex, heavily implied “Eyes Wide Shut”-type gentlemen’s club sex and parents having sex will tonight feature the sexiest sex of all: The sex you share awkwardly with two other people. The LA Times reports that Gossip Girl‘s heavily-touted “OM3” three-way scene will air tonight, despite the objections of the Parents Television Council, which has given the show a nice burst of publicity thanks to its protests. Here’s a tip, Parents Television Council: They meant for that to happen. That, like threesomes for nubile college kids, is organic to the process.

Also organic to the process: The eventual ratings dropoff. I am part of Gossip Girl‘s 10% audience decline in this, their third season (though honestly, that may be because now that Chuck and Blair are back together, whats the point?) but then again I am also part of the demo that watches the time-shifted version on the DVR, and will do so tonight (according to the LAT, its numbers jump 60% in women 18-34 via time-shifted viewing; I am just slightly outside that demo, but no less enthralled with what the kids are doing these days). I’m just still a little disappointed in Serena for not going to Brown.

Anyway! I will certainly be tuning in tonight, at some point. (Twitter don’t spoil it for me!) In the meantime, the CW is running a cheeky little promo suggesting possible permutations (above). Who do you think the lucky three will be? Take our poll below, and by all means feel free to write in your favorite combo in the comments if somehow we’ve missed it. Either way, I just hope that it’s Rufus crooning in the background. The right background music is so important to an organic, loving threesome.
