For one of their new, hilariously soft-porny promos for Gossip Girl, the CW appropriated the Parents Television Council’s declaration that the show is “Mind-Blowingly Inappropriate,” splashing the words across Nate’s hunky, naked, smooth, firm, hairless, taut, lightly bisque-colored chest. Na na, they must have thought. We’re so clever. Take that, prudes.

But, instead, the PTC was all Oh really, CW? Two can play that game.
