– DEADLINE HOLLYWOOD writes that the “Gossip Girl” spinoff (“Lily”) is already dead, and TV.com speculates its because there just isn’t enough room for all of the hour-long dramas the CW wants to debut next fall. That is, unless “Privileged” gets the boot. I, for one, find Lily van der Woodsen to be the most interesting character on “Gossip Girl” and would like to see a spinoff surrounding a young Lily in the ’80s.
– THE LIVE FEED reports that the ratings for the series finale of “Dollhouse” dropped to a season-low. Not a good sign.
– Amidst all the information that VARIETY provides in terms of new shows for fall, it looks like “Scrubs” and “Better Off Ted” may each see another season. After watching the season finale of “Scrubs,” I have no idea where they go from here, but hey…
– Ratings for the season finales of “Chuck” and “Heroes” failed to impress. This is especially bad news for “Chuck,” which is definitely on the bubble to get a pickup.
– TV.COM reports that talks between ABC and the producers of “Scrubs” are heating up. The ratings haven’t been great, but ad sales have been solid due to the upscale nature of the show’s audience. This season has been up and down, and has suffered some with portions of the cast missing significant time (as a planned, cost-cutting measure). But when everyone’s accounted for, the show still has its moments.
– EW.COM is reporting that the CW is planning to run repeats of “Privileged” this summer, which could be taken as a good sign as far as the show’s future is concerned.
– VARIETY discusses the still-a-ways-off-series-finale of “Lost,” and how the producers are approaching it.
