The City debuted last night with back-to-back episodes, "If She Can Make it Here..." and "The Truth Will Reveal Itself." The Hills spinoff did not disappoint.

In typical fashion, The Hollywood Gossip will be recapping every episode, awarding and deducting points as it sees fit. Last night's introduction to the series found Whitney Port overwhelmed by co-workers, friends and boyfriend drama in N.Y.C.

On to the rankings!

Not enough fashion exposure - during Fashion Week, no less. Minus 3.

Who the heck is Erin Lucas, and how is Whitney friends with her? We don't really understand this relationship, but she seems pretty nice! Plus 4.

Charming as he seems one moment, Jay Lyon sure can act like a jerk the next. Mumbling repeatedly and proclaiming that he's gonna do whatever the eff he wants doesn't endear you to most people. Minus 5. But Plus 3 for the accent and hair!

What to you make of Whitney Port and smooth-talking Jay Lyon?

Our first impressions of Olivia Palermo were not exactly strong. Anybody calling herself a "social" - short for socialite, like you need a nickname for that - automatically sucks. And who the hell calls a debutante ball a  "Deb." Lame. Minus 7.

This isn't a specific point, but a general observation - by virtue of her intelligence and the fact that she's relatable on some level, a show about Whitney Port sure beats one that - at least in Season Four - focused so much on Audrina Patridge. Plus 10.

Speaking of Audzo, Whitney stands up to Jay Lyon, unlike a certain someone. Calling him out on the issue with his ex showed she's not going to be a pushover. Plus 2.

The Hills star Whitney Port cozied up to her Aussie beau Jay Lyon at the Patron Naughty or Nice Party with the NY Cares Coat Drive and MTV’s The City party.

Whitney’s spin-off series, The City, premieres next Monday, December 29 at 10 p.m. on MTV. We can't wait to see the romance of Whitney and Jay play out!

Give Me a Break!

'CITY' COUPLE: Jay Lyon and Whitney Port make an attractive pair!

So who is this Jay? According to MTV, "Jay Lyon, 24, is an Australian musician and the new love in Whitney’s life until a face from her past threatens to end their romance just as it begins. He adores Whitney and is newly out of a long-term relationship but there are so many temptations lurking around every corner of New York City."

Intriguing, to say the least. For more gorgeous shots of Whitney and her new co-stars, check out The Hollywood Gossip's gallery of The City photos ...

The Hills was heartwarming, annoying, funny and nearly Audrina-free last night. Our recap will consist of awarding and deducting points as we see fit.

When Lauren Conrad learns her parents are moving out of Laguna Beach, she returns home to pack up her old room. Spencer Pratt tries to get sister Stephanie to ditch boyfriend Cameron, and Whitney Port takes a step closer to The City.

A Pimp and His Prize Hoe

On to the rankings! Chime in with your own!

Playing the role of strong, protective big brother, we came dangerously close to giving props to Spencer Pratt. But he would be snide, sarcastic and passive-aggressive to Stephanie even if Cameron weren't being a d!ck, so Minus 1.

Spencer to Stephanie: "Do you know how immature and stupid this relationship sounds from an outside perspective?" Plus 18, because it, like, totally does, but this is equally true of Speidi to the entire celebrity gossip reading world.

Within the first few minutes, LC name-drops the episode title, "Dream boy, dream job!" Minus 2 for lameness and the strong possibility that she was coached to.

At the Diane Van Furstenberg offices in NYC, Elizabeth, Alixe and Whitney Port herself are all wearing tight clothing and high heels at work. This is actually consistent with both the industry and city. Welcome to New York! Plus 3.

At least from what we could tell, Stephanie surprised Heidi and Spencer by bringing Cameron to dinner. Spencer went off on him immediately. Minus 4, because surely Stephanie would have seen that coming. It's Spencer Pratt, people!

How much did you love Lauren Conrad while she was back home in her old room! That scene with LC and Lo reflecting was, like, so real. *sniff* Plus 7!

But Minus 2 because while it would've been beyond ridiculous if Jason Wahler walked in at that moment, we were kinda hoping it would happen.

Okay, this has been bothering us for months: the hosts of the Hills After Show are such losers. Do we have to see them during commercials too? Who the eff dresses that girl? And you know that dude's glasses aren't even prescription. Minus 9.

Of course, Whitney would use a lot of Valley Girl-speak in her interview and of course, no one would bat an eye. If you're Heidi Montag at Bolthouse, this would be annoying as hell. But if you're Whitney Port, it's the name of the fashion game! Plus 3.

Whitney's Australian love interest, Jay Lyon, appears for, like, three seconds to hug her a lot before she leaves for L.A. Minus only 2, because while that was a total sham, we're so psyched to see Jay and Whitney on The City, you don't even understand!

TOTAL: +11. Not bad! Leave a comment with your own scores!

We missed her on last night's gripping episode of The Hills.

But we know Whitney Port has moved on to more concrete pastures.

Get it? Because starring on her own show will be more substantive, and because New York City is the concrete jungle, people! Hello? [crickets]

Anyway, below is the first official trailer for her new spin-off, The City.

We can't wait to see Whitney Port - always a Hills fan favorite - on her very own show! Co-stars include her rumored new beau Jay Lyon (who dated Miranda Kerr, apparently) and BFF Olivia Palermo (a prominent New York socialite, apparently) ...
