Is the "Gossip Girl" spin off already dead?

Brittanysnow No!!!!!

Rumors are swirling round Hollywood that, though we'll meet 1980s Lily during next week's "Gossip Girl" episode, the spin off centering around the character (starring Brittany Snow) won't make The CW's fall schedule. 

But why??

Apparently, the stuff we're going to see on Monday didn't turn out as hot as The CW had hoped.

But have you seen the photos? They're all bright and fun and, you know, 80s. Imagine the music. I mean... 

Just fix it. Whatever's wrong with it, just fix it. I want to see this business on my TV in September.
