PTC Launches Campaign to Keep Sexual Threesome Episode of ‘Gossip Girl’ Off the Air

Nov 4, 2009  •  Post A Comment

The Parents Television Council launched a letter campaign to about 120 CW affiliates asking them to preempt the Nov. 9 episode of “Gossip Girl” because of reports that it will include a three-way sexual tryst among characters, B&C reports.

If the episode airs, PTC threaten in the letter, the group will consider contacting local and national advertisers, adding “if this program violates broadcast decency law, rest assured that our members will contact the Federal Communications Commission."

The last time PTC tried to organize a similar preemption was for the season finale of Showtime’s “Dexter” in May 2008.

  1. I am 16 years old and i watch gossip girl along with alot of other girls my age. I think it is wrong to promote sexual experiments such as having a threesome on T.V. with famouse people some may look up too. I believe sexual intercourse should be between yourself and one that you love and not just for anyone to do because “its fun or exciting”. I know that most all parents would agree. I also have a few friends who have experimented with sexual intercourse ending up in bad situations and some even getting hurt because “it looked fun on t.v.”. Please dont display this kind of “sexual fun” on your show. It woould be nice to see one T.V. show with some sort of decency. Thank you.

  2. Crissy,
    If you don’t want to watch scenes as mentioned, then don’t! There are so many far worse things on tv and this is just a ploy to get attention by the PTC. If parent’s do not want their children to watch it.. then don’t! But there is no need to portray sex as only ending up bad and hurting people, that isn’t realistic. Sex is a part of life no matter who you are, even though you are obviously still a virgin.. what do you think brought you into this world, a stork? Let’s get real here, threesomes have been on tv and in movies a million times! Plus it isn’t like they are showing private parts or something… you know they will keep it classy. Just like all the other sex scenes that have been on gossip girl the past 2 seasons!! Get over it or don’t watch it!!

  3. forex is easier but its risky compared to stock. Easy, why? because in forex, you can trade at your own comfort. It is available 24 hours a day, 5 days a week. So basically, you can trade at your convenient time. Risky, why? Currency value change so fast. you can earn money in a short time but could also lose in a blink of an eye.

  4. You have to work on the area you focus atleast for an year and then it will be easiar. Without professional skill developed, you will lose your money certainly.
