'Gossip Girl' boss teases Dair's bedroom bust. Plus, an EXCLUSIVE CLIP from tonight's episode

When Gossip Girl returns tonight, two members of the gang will be mourning something near and dear to them — and, let’s face it, us — their sex life.

No one could have foreseen this issue arising for Dan and Blair — least of all them. After a fairly lengthy period of love tango between the two, tonight’s episode finds them realizing that their dance in the bedroom needs some work. And while a lesser couple might take this as a sign of non-compatibility, executive producer Josh Safran says the issue is a little different for Dair. READ FULL STORY

'Gossip Girl,' 'Criminal Minds,' 'Grimm,' 'Vampire Diaries': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

This has been such a busy week in TV Land that I’ve completely neglected my backlog of Draw Something games. In case you didn’t know how much I care, now you do. (And if you didn’t know how much I rarely interact with real people, you now also know that, too.)

So without further ado, here are the offerings this week: Gossip Girl finale teases, dish on one of Morgan’s best episodes yet on Criminal Minds, some goodies for Grimm fans, and much, much more.

If your question didn’t sneak in this week, please keep sending them along. (spoilerroom@ew.com) I’ll try to fit you in next week. Also, continue sending me your random theories and ponderings. They’re highly entertaining (even if I can’t include them all here). Until next time!

‘GOSSIP GIRL’: THREE OF YOUR BURNING QUESTIONS ANSWERED!
I LOVE Gossip Girl fans. Not only because they are a passionate bunch (I like your pluck!), but they are among the most active question askers here at Spoiler Room. So as a thanks: Here are three of your questions answered straight from executive producer Josh Safran.

Do you have any scoop for Chuck and Blair for Gossip Girl #spoileroom — @Smallville944
Yes. But the Chuck/Blair/Dan-centric portion of my convo with Safran was so good, I’ll share it with you in a separate story FIRST thing Monday. Cool? And no, this answer doesn’t count against the three fan questions. It’s more of an FYI. :) READ FULL STORY

'Smash,' 'Alcatraz,' 'Voice' dip as NBC wins Monday

NBC won Monday night with another impressive performance from The Voice, but its new drama series Smash fell a worrisome amount in the ratings.

Smash (8.1 million viewers, 2.8 adults 18-49 rating) was down 26 percent from last week’s premiere, yet still won the 10 p.m. hour. Smash‘s dip partly reflects a drop from its lead-in, The Voice (16.1 million, 5.9), which fell 12 percent from last week’s debut.

You don’t want to paint Monday’s ratings poorly for NBC because, when taken as a snapshot, this was a great night for the network — NBC won every time period and put pressure on rivals (usual victor CBS watched its sitcom block fall to season lows). Yet when looking at ratings, you’re also following the trends. The Voice dip is actually good news, declining a mere 12 percent the week after a show’s huge Super Bowl-fueled launch is as strong as one can reasonably expect. The Smash drop is problematic, however. The musical was at a fine level — you just hope the brakes come on during the next couple weeks. READ FULL STORY

'House' and 'Alcatraz' help Fox win Monday ratings

House and Alcatraz both took a small step down in the ratings Monday, yet nonetheless led Fox to win the night.

With CBS airing repeats of its powerful comedy block, veteran House (8.6 million viewers, 2.8 adults 18-49 rating) and newcomer Alcatraz (8.3 million, 2.7) both were at the top of their respective hours. (Well, Alcatraz tied for the win.) Both were down 10 percent from last week.

ABC’s The Bachelor (8.1 million, 2.6) was down a tenth. NBC had a repeat of Fear Factor, the Who’s Still Standing finale (6.6 million, 1.7) and Rock Center With Brian Williams (3.3 million, 0.8). Over in the magical CW Land, Gossip Girl (1.4 million, 0.7) and Hart of Dixie (1.5 million, 0.6) both perked up a tenth.

'Gossip Girl' 100th episode shocker: Producers Stephanie Savage and Josh Safran tease what's next

Woah, Upper East Siders: Sure, you always knew that Blair Waldorf’s wedding would be a decadent affair to remember, but not even the newly revealed Gossip Girl could have seen these twists coming. Yet while Blair’s disastrous nuptials were the highlight of Gossip Girl‘s 100th episode extravaganza, the long-standing queen bee won’t be the only one drowning in the wake of tonight’s chaos.

EW attended a special screening of the episode in Los Angeles last week, where producers Stephanie Savage and Joshua Safran were on hand to answer reporters’ burning questions. One thing was made abundantly clear: Blair’s actions will have major consequences, and we won’t have to wait long to see them. Shout out your feelings on tonight’s events in the comments, and check back after the West Coast airing to read what Safran and Savage had to say on what’s next!

In honor of 'Gossip Girl' Day, bosses tease 100th episode's 'gasp' moment

Happy Gossip Girl Day, everyone! Yes, that exists now.

To mark the occasion, made official this morning by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg at a ceremony on the Gossip Girl set in Queens, N.Y., EW caught up with executive producers Stephanie Savage and Josh Safran to get the intel on Monday’s 100th episode of Gossip Girl.

Now, much has already been said about the episode. It’s Blair’s wedding day, Georgina’s back, and there are love triangles upon love triangles about to come to a head. But arguably one of the episode’s most important moments, says Safran, has yet to be spoiled. (He checks online!) “You have to see [the last few minutes] to believe them. I really think they will take people’s breath away,” he says. “Someone asked on Twitter, ‘Will we smile or cry at the end of the episode?’ And I said, ‘It will be more like a gasp.'” READ FULL STORY

'Gossip Girl' boss Josh Safran on Blair's future, 'heated' moments in the writer's room

A decision is coming — that’s what executive producer Joshua Safran assures weary Gossip Girl fans, who are engaged in a seemingly perpetual fan war over which man (Dan or Chuck…because no one likes Prince Louis, right?) deserves to be an object of Blair’s affection.

But when it will happen, where it will happen, and, most importantly, who it will be — all that requires a bit more investigation.

Tonight’s episode will surely provide a clue. As Chuck fights for his life after being injured in the car crash that occurred in the last new episode, the previews have already shown Blair staying by his bedside. But Safran warns, it won’t be so simple. “We knew leading up, even though episode 10 was our ‘midseason cliff-hanger,’ we knew that the wedding and 100th episode was really where we were leading up to. So the tension is still ratcheting up,” he says. READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother,' 'Chuck,' 'Glee,' 'Gossip Girl': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Happy Thanksgiving, Roomies!

As I’ll likely be in a Turkey coma on Friday, here’s something to be thankful for a little early… Spoiler Room: Special Wednesday/Pre-Holiday/Yay For a Long Weekend Edition! Yup, just a few scoops to take you into your hopefully lovely holiday.

But before the 411 — and at the risk of sounding very sappy — I have to say that I’m very thankful for your readership and highly entertaining comments and questions this year. Here’s to another great one!

On that note, don’t slack! Send questions and ponderings to spoilerroom@ew.com or Tweet ‘em to me @EWSandraG. Be well!

‘HIMYM': ABOUT THE NEXT EPISODE…
The logline for next week’s How I Met Your Mother is incredibly teasey. Observe: When “Robin receives bad news, she decides to lie about it to the gang. Meanwhile, Marshall hangs Christmas decorations on the house in the ‘burbs with help from his neighbor.” But still unsatisfied, I hopped on the phone yesterday with HIMYM executive producer Carter Bays, who talked about the next episode. (To read part of our chat, click here.)

What I left out about the Dec. 5 episode, however, is something that truly sent chills of anticipation down my spine: While Bays said he believes it’s “one of the best episodes we’ve ever done,” he also expressed a little apprehension, saying he hopes viewers will see it the same way. “You know, honestly, I hope people stay on board after the next episode,” he tells me. “I think there’s some incredible acting in it, and it’s a really nicely told story that we’re very pleased with. But… this Barney and Robin stuff is a third rail for our show in a good way. It’s nice to get a little jolt every now and then, but it is so divisive among fans from what I’ve gathered. So hopefully people will enjoy the story for what it is. But yeah, we’re nervous about where the story goes. Excited, and very proud of it, but I hope people stay on board. I think they will.” READ FULL STORY

'Gossip Girl,' 'Burn Notice,' and 'Unforgettable' stars talk what's next in the Spoiler Room -- VIDEO

Two down! Pretty soon, I’ll have a full AMC-length season of Spoiler Room: Video Edition in the bag.

In this episode, I bring you teases from a few people you might know: Kaycee DeFer of Gossip Girl fame, Bruce Campbell, and Dylan Walsh. But what really makes today’s video special is that it features the very first on-camera fan question. As I say in the video (but it’s worth mentioning again), thank you to every one of you who answered my tweet asking for video question submissions. You are all brave and awesome. There will be more chances to do that soon because, frankly, I’d rather see your lovely faces in these videos than mine. That’s not false modesty — it’s me not wanting to get up two hours early to get dressed on filming days. Yes, two hours. Isn’t that sad?

Anyhoo, come back here for your regular Spoiler Room column later this week. (Note: Follow me on Twitter for the latest on that. I MAY have an early Thanksgiving present for y’all.) Make sure you’re e-mailing me your questions, ponderings, and comments, especially if they are about what else you’d like to be seeing in these video editions. (They ARE for you, after all.) My e-mail is the same as always: spoilerroom@ew.com.

In the meantime, enjoy episode 2: Attack of the Clones, which means nothing, other than I can’t say the words “episode 2″ without my nerd brain responding “attack of the clones.” (Please tell me I’m not the only one… ) READ FULL STORY

'Gossip Girl' scoop: Bosses planning on another season. Plus, the cast teases big moments in 100th episode

Spotted: The cast and crew of Gossip Girl partying it up at Cipriani on Wall Street in New York in honor of the show’s 100th episode, which airs Jan. 30. But fans also have reason to celebrate: While the show has yet to be officially picked up for another season, Gossip Girl executive producers told to EW just prior to the bash that they believe a sixth season is imminent — and are planning accordingly.

“We’ve had no one saying to us, ‘Wrap it up. This is the last season.’ So we’re not [treating the season finale] as such,” said EP Joshua Safran, hoping to quell some fans’ fears that their favorite teen drama would soon fall victim to dwindling ratings.

Peter Roth, president of Warner Bros. Television, also offered up his vote of confidence. “I can’t really say at this point, but I would hope and expect that there would be at least another year — if not years–  to come.” Which is good news, considering executive producer Stephanie Savage said the finale would “absolutely” leave fans wanting to see the next season. (Translation: I’d place my bet on a cliffhanger.) “We see [the finale] as a continuing, developing story,” Safran said, adding that the writers have about 6 more episodes to pen. “At the same time, like every season, we plan to show the characters’ evolution and where we’re going to go with all the twists and turns that are about to happen. So there are no plans to wrap it up.”

More immediately, most of the night’s chatter related to the show’s big 100th episode that will center around Blair’s royal wedding to Prince Louis. READ FULL STORY

'Once Upon a Time,' 'Castle,' 'Leverage,' 'How I Met Your Mother': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

As I’m capping off this week’s Spoiler Room, Regis Philbin is saying goodbye on Live! So as I try to ignore it enough not to weep like a mad person, forgive me if I don’t make a lot of sense. (God, I’m such a ridiculous sappy human!)

Okay, let’s get down to business. Here are this week’s goodies. Thanks to all who submitted questions. Keep ‘em coming! Don’t know how? Here’s the info: spoilerroom@ew.com or @EWSandraG on Twitter.

And a special thanks to all those brave souls who answered my call for video questions on Twitter (which you can see in the next Spoiler Room: Video Edition). There will be more chances to do so very soon! READ FULL STORY

Awwww. Y’all know what I realized this week?

It’s been just about one year since we first started our show-mance (and I mean that quite literally). Our mutual love for television has brought us together and I couldn’t be happier about it.

Also, celebrate by sending me more questions and ponderings. (E-mail: SpoilerRoom@EW.com or Tweet: @EWSandraG) You’re great people and I appreciate you. Happy Anniversary!! (Note: It was officially last Saturday, but in the grand tradition of all my relationships, I forgot. So we can celebrate now!)

‘GREY’S ANATOMY': KIM RAVER TALKS TEDDY’S GRIEF
So, readers, was Grey’s Anatomy not the most heart-wrenching thing ever last night? I was consoled only by the fact that I was sure there were other people somewhere bawling along with me. But aside from leaving me with puffy eyes, the episode also left us all with a burning question: What’s going to happen to poor Teddy? Well, when I spoke with Kim Raver, she weighed in on what’s next. “It’s like the time-bomb waiting to explode,” she says. “I know that she doesn’t just dissolve into a puddle on the floor. It’s not that kind of grieving. I know she will go into ‘Let me try to fix it’ mode. But we don’t know how long that will hold.” READ FULL STORY
