“Gossip Girl” has great buzz, mediocre ratings. So, when GG returns Monday for its final five episodes, the CW will refrain from streaming the show online. Gotta watch (or tape) on TV, kids, at 8 p.m. The CW will re-air each episode on the following Sunday at 6 p.m. Shows will still be available for sale on iTunes.

Blake Lively, who plays Serena, told USA Today that the scripts “have been really, really juicy and exciting.”
