Guys: 'Gossip Girl' Is Worth Your Time <i>and</i> Scores Points With the LadiesPop-Ed: It's heart-in-your-mouth stuff.

Rags-to-riches (or as the CW deems it, Brooklyn to Manhattan) writer Dan Humphrey has found out the worst: He's impregnated a one-night stand. A one-night stand he cheated on his leggy, blonde, socialite ex-girlfriend with. Then there's Mr. All-American, Nate Archibald, overlooking the New York skyline, drowning himself in booze and easy women, trying to forget the same leggy, blonde, socialite ex-girlfriend.

Under the layers of electro-pop, high fashion and teen pandemonium, this, believe it or not, is 'Gossip Girl.' And yes, gents, it's well worth your time. I'm a guy -- a straight one -- and I don't miss it. Ever.

If you're a fella reading this with a smug grin, let me assure you I used to be right there, too. New York socialites? High school bitching? Err, a show called 'Gossip Girl'? Come on, man.

Read on to find out why it's more than worth your time, guys.
