HATE IT! Gossip Girl Spin-Off ~ Part 2

Haven't we already been down this road previously? Geez, I *know* that we have. A 'Gossip Girl' spin-off has reared its ugly spoilt head once again as it's being revisited by the CW brass. Ever anxious to find a kernel of success in an existing program, broadcasters are always willing to cannibalize one great show to spawn a mediocre spin-off (hello? Private Practice! Joey!), and possibly seriously damage the successful original.

Only a few of GG characters are strong enough for their own show. Chuck, Blair and Serena - and that's about it! I don't think GG wants to spare any of these first rate marquee characters for a spin-off. Vanessa is too boring, Jenny - too annoying. Dan -- okay, chalk him up under boring too. Nate -- too vacuous. A spin-off with the parents... Lily and Rufus? Maybe, might work but even they might become flimsy representatives of themselves without the kids to pad out the scenes. So that leaves Blair's maid, Dorota. Well, she can be kinda witty!...
