Bianca in Palm Beach, Fla.: OMFG! Please help! I am now just hearing of this ridiculous complaint that the Parent Television Council is making against next Monday's episode of Gossip Girl, because of the threesome storyline. I hope this is just for publicity, but can you reassure us that the episode will indeed air? Please?! Thank youuu!!!

In case you haven't heard, TV fans, the self-appointed band of media moralizers known as the Parents Television Council has gotten wind of the Gossip Girl threesome set for this coming Monday, and boy, are their granny panties in a bunch! The PTC is sending sternly worded faxes hither and yon in protest, but does this squawky bunch of cultural conservatives actually have any power?

Could they be persuading the CW to step back from the threesome storyline? We've done a little digging and here's the word on the street:

According to insiders, so far there is "no affiliate pullout" for Monday's episode of Gossip Girl, meaning that no local CW stations have opted to preempt the threesome episode (official title: "They Shoot Humphreys, Don't They?"). That might change before Monday, as more TV stations catch wind of the so-called scandal, but chances are that you (and your show) are safe! Good news, don't you think?

Now, speaking of "They Shoot Humphreys, Don't They?", we have four sneaky peeks for you, although sadly none of them include the threesome in question...

Will you be tuning in to Monday's Gossip Girl, or will you be participating in a PTC-organized boycott?
