'Gossip Girl'

The entitled NYC private school teens of "Gossip Girl" gave TV viewers a chance to get away from all the boring aspects of teen life -- zits, homework and part-time jobs -- and let them focus on all the stuff that's really important -- drugs, rehab, three-ways and lecherous cougars. The cast, which includes Penn Badgley, Ed Westwick, Taylor Momsen, Blake Lively, Chace Crawford and Leighton Meester, is notable for being exceptionally pretty.
