In case you hadn't heard, there's a threesome going down on Gossip Girl next week. Well, at least there will be if the episode ends up making it to air.
If the Parents Television Council (PTC) has its way, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) could fine the CW or yank the episode altogether.
The group has released an open letter to the CW objecting to the scene, which they have not seen, but are still calling "reckless and irresponsible."
"Gossip Girl routinely depicts teenagers engaging in promiscuous and consequence-free sexual behavior," PTC president Tim Winter wrote the CW.
He says the show is "now complicit in establishing a precedent and expectation that teenagers engage in behaviors ... associated with adult films."
If Gossip Girl is bad, being right can eat it! Our intel suggests neither Leighton Meester or Blake Lively will be part of the threesome (lame!) but we're posting this pic anyway!
The PTC pleads to the show and its network to "ask yourself, how does airing this program serve your obligation to serve the public interest?"
Umm ... the public is interested in threesomes? HELLO!?
FCC rules permit the government to remove programming deemed "unsatisfactory or unsuitable or contrary to the public interest." Will it happen in this case?
Doubtful. The hype for the epsiode, "They Shoot Humphreys, Don't They," has been significant, it's still Gossip Girl, and still the CW. How racy can it really be?
It should also be noted that the CW has not publicly responded to the complaint but leaked two sneak previews from the episode with no threesome teasers.
