We're Happy To Be Away From The City This Week Because...

by CARSON GRIFFITH · June 18, 2009

[Picture via TV Cocktail] People are buzzing about Bravo's new show, 'NYC Prep'. And we're not sure what would be worse, being bombarded by advertising for the reality version of the Gossip Girl rip-off or actually running into the teenage brats kids on the Upper East Side somewhere. Luckily for us, the only television promos that have crossed our paths out here have been in the form of planes pulling Royal Pains banners - and we're just fine with that. It seems everyone in NYC that we've talked to are just as annoyed with the existence of the show as we are, so we're as happy as Lobster Roll clams that the only exposure we're getting to this rubbish are the previews that interrupt our Real Housewives marathons. So we don't know what you'll be doing on Tuesday when the show premieres, but our plans will have nothing to do with watching NYC Prep. And if they do, they will also have to include trying to control our gag reflex.
