Gossip Girl is about to bring us a month long of ultra-dramatic fireworks, thanks to November sweeps! What are “sweeps,” you ask? According to our grandparents, November sweeps used to be scripted television’s version of the Olympics. Remember the Ross and Rachel “break” on Friends? That happened during sweeps. Nowadays, in fancy modern internet-laden times, the TV networks bring the drama 24/7 — they don’t just save it for November.
This is especially true for Gossip Girl’s series-ending Season 6, which is getting into high gear as we enter sweeps month. The CW just released simple but juicy synopses for both Episode 6 and Episode 7. Check ‘em:
