  1. Thanks to a collection of well-off New York adolescents whose parents really should have known better, the NBC Universal-owned cable network's out to convince us that those kids from "Gossip Girl" are real. As if anyone would want them to be.

    The main problem with NYC Prep is that the show never gets better than its title--lacking the sociological insight to score as a documentary or the hyper-real situations and "characters" that would make it sizzle as a soap.

    I do not want to make the typical generalization but I'm just surprised there may be people who look at miserable programs like this. I come from Scandinavia, specifically Copenhagen, where people learn French, English and German in addition to their mother tongue from 3 class. This program can only and must be a huge disgrace for not only people from New York but throughout the United States. If young people are so dumb in all of the US. Then you have a huge problem!
    I give the program a star for content and U.S. 10 stars to hopefully not have to be full of such ignorant people
