"Gossip Girl", "Deal" tank

Despite all the hoopla – for Gossip Girl and its racy ads and pulling the program from the Internet, and for Deal for having President Bush appear – neither did well with Girl pulling in only 2.5 million viewers (even pulling in fewer viewers than MTV’s The Hills, which drew a little over 4 million) and Deal matching a season low among adults 18-49. The biggest winners? ABC’s Dancing With The Stars and CBS’ comedy lineup (except for Big Bang Theory.)
