Long time no see, Leighton Meester! The former Gossip Girl actress recently enjoyed a "girls' night" in the Valley with her best friends Gina Gammell, Aly Michalka, Amanda Michalka, Davida Williams and Madeline Zima. Leighton regrammed a group photo Thursday after Al shared it via her own Instagram account. Aly said they were "#gettingourorbson." Aj shared a similar shot and wrote, "So much love." Davida's caption didn't reveal much else about the girls' get-together, either. "Cute dogs and a bunch a girls," she wrote. The girls' night in marks the first time Leighton has been photographed since giving birth to a daughter, Arlo Day, with her husband, actor Adam »
“America’s Next Top Model” is soon going off the air after 22 cycles, but the fashion television genre will be in style for seasons to come.
Tyra Banks’ modeling competition debuted on UPN 12 years ago, launching the high demand for high-fashion unscripted TV, before moving to the CW, where it will finish up its final runway walk in late 2015 — the same quarter Banks launched her new syndicated daytime talker “FabLife,” a lifestyle show that covers the mainstream fashion conversation on a daily basis.
The year after “Top Model’s” 2003 premiere, Bravo introduced viewers to “Project Runway.” Now on Lifetime, the show is in its 14th season, and has spawned five spinoffs. Ratings for the Heidi Klum-hosted designer competition are up 10%, and the show has been Emmy-nominated for best reality series every year since it’s been eligible. With nearly 60 nominations and a major win for the supermodel as best host, »

Wicked City, ABC’s 1980s drama about a murderous couple (Erika Christensen and Ed “Chuck Bass” Westwick), has gotten the ax, EW reports. When the show first premiered, reviewers agreed that it was “wicked lousy” and called it “offensive, predictable and awful,” like most of Chuck Bass’s actions on Gossip Girl. Wicked City’s ratings were lower than Chuck Bass’s sultry vocal register — this week’s episode had only 1.7 million viewers and a 0.4 rating among adults 18 to 49 — and, like Chuck Bass in the eyes of his father, the series seemed flawed to the core. So, just as Blair once decided to leave Chuck Bass behind and go to Tuscany alone, ABC has announced that it would immediately pull Wicked City from its lineup and continue on without it. Other fall series have had their orders cut short recently — Minority Report, The Player, and the Chace “Nate Archibald” Crawford »

With our High-School-tv Showdown nearing its series finale (this Friday Matt Zoller Seitz will make the final determination), we wanted to provide an update on how our critics' picks are faring against the collective voice of the fans on our Facebook page. In short: poorly. They're faring poorly. The two groups mostly agreed in the first round, though Glee did dispatch critical front-runner Friday Night Lights in the fan polls, and presumed powerhouse My So-Called Life was felled by Vulture-reader front-runner Gossip Girl. The second round, however, went completely off the rails, with Veronica Mars advancing at a point when the critics had it falling to My-So Called Life, Gilmore Girls prevailing over Freaks and Geeks, and 90210 toppling Glee (as opposed to losing to Friday Night Lights). Where does that leave us? Far, far from a consensus: Critics' final four: Friday Night Lights, My So-Called Life, Buffy, Freaks and »

Wicked City premiered recently on ABC, and you might be curious about the crime drama after seeing the first couple of episodes. Ed Westwick (Gossip Girl) and Erika Christensen (Parenthood) are starring as a "killer couple" who stalks the Sunset Strip in the 1980s. The series was developed as a Los Angeles-centric "true-crime" procedural, but if you look up their characters, Kent and Betty Beaumont, you won't find anything. However, if you dig a little deeper, you'll find the story of Doug Clark and Carol M. Bundy. While the producers have said that Wicked City isn't based on one particular case, the parallels between the show and Clark (aka "The Sunset Strip Slayer") and Bundy's story are striking. There's a full book, called The Sunset Murders, about the couple, but here is the (very) abbreviated version. Warning: this true story is incredibly disturbing. Image Source: ABC How Doug Met Carol »

Here at Vulture, we've been examining some of the greatest and most beloved shows in the teen TV canon. Today, we turn our attention to two creators whose shows are not only part of our High-School-tv Showdown, but part of our hearts. Josh Schwartz created The O.C. at just 26, and then co-created Gossip Girl only a few years later. Rob Thomas gave us Veronica Mars, and we marshmallows were never the same. Schwartz and Thomas are responsible for some of the best parent-child relationships in TV's modern era, some of the great romances, and the best Chrismukkah ever. Ahead, Schwartz and Thomas discuss how Freaks and Geeks inspired them, the state of teen dramas today, and the romantic pairings they never planned for. Josh Schwartz: Rob, what made you want to do a high-school-based show? Rob Thomas: I taught high school for five years, my first five years »

To say that we were fans of Ted Geoghegan’s We Are Still Here, would be quite the understatement (review). An absolutely entertaining horror film, that felt fresh and exciting, the film gave genre fans a film that supplied scares and great performances from everyone involved with the film. For being his first feature, Geoghegan showed directorial chops that made the film feel like it was made a seasoned filmmaker, and teaming up with both Dark Sky Films and Travis Stevens’ Snowfort Pictures to create the film was a choice that instantly felt like a winning team.
Now re-teaming with both Snowfort and Dark Sky for his sophomore film, Geoghegan has announced Satanic Panic, a film that from the sound of it, looks to be yet another solid story from the young filmmaker and a film that just screams “Jerry’s wet dreams” all over it (I do love me »

In a competitive situation, CBS has given a script commitment with penalty to Mi-Zero (tentative title), a drama project from Gulfstream Television and Warner Bros TV, where Gulfstream is based. Written by Austin Winsberg (Gossip Girl, The Sound Of Music Live!) and Alex Litvak (Predators, The Three Musketeers), the project is described as a fun, action-packed, female-empowerment spy show in the vein of Kingsman and Alias. It centers on a young American woman who marries… »
Looking, um, amazing, Lively! Bikini-clad Blake Lively strutted her gorgeous figure on the beach while in Lord Howe Island in New South Wales, Australia, on Wednesday, Oct. 28.

Lively, 28, rocked a cleavage-baring orange string bikini top and teamed it with Tory Burch blue bottoms. In addition, the actress, who married Ryan Reynolds in 2012, wore minimal makeup and kept her luscious blonde waves in a [...] »
In the Gossip Girl finale in 2012, the writers jumped five years into the future to visit Dan and Serena’s wedding. Blair looked on with her son, Henry; newspaper mogul Nate was planning a run for New York City mayor; Eric and Jenny were there, being awkward and forgotten about; Georgina Sparks was married to Chuck’s creepy uncle, Jack; and the rest of the cast wondered why the hell Rufus was dating Lisa Loeb. The scene was meant to tell us they all lived happily ever after. But these drama-loving characters can’t be happy for that long, can they? I borrowed the writers’ time machine, jumped five more years into the future, and picked up a copy of Gray’s Sports Almanac and the New York Post. (Yes, print media still exists in the future.) Of course, there was a “Page Six” article all about our favorite Gossip Girl heiress. »

From late October through mid-November, Vulture is holding a High-School-tv Showdown to determine the greatest teen show of the past 30 years. Each day, a different writer will be tasked with determining the winner of a round of the bracket, until New York Magazine TV critic Matt Zoller Seitz judges the finals on November 13. Today's battle: Rachel Syme judges My So-Called Life versus Gossip Girl. After you read, be sure to visit Vulture's Facebook page to vote on which show should advance. Hello, Upper East Siders. Gossip Girl here, and a little birdie wearing fugly Prada loafers from three seasons ago told me that your judge had kind of a tough time with this one. Or, as Angela Chase put it while laid out like a grunge odalisque on her parent’s overstuffed couch upholstered in classic mid-’90s puke-brown brocade, there is something about Sunday night that really makes you want to kill yourself, »
