The end of 2009 is here today so let’s take a look back at the best TV shows aimed at and about teenagers. Some are more realistic than others and some are just downright guilty pleasures, but here are the Top 10 of 2009.
10. Gossip Girl - CW
Based on the books by Cecily von Ziegesar, the series about spoiled NYC teens on the Upper East Side was launched in 2007 and has been a favorite ever since. While ratings have slipped this year, it is still talked about. The cast (Leighton Meester, Blake Lively, Chace Crawford, Taylor Momsen, Jessica Szohr, Ed Westwick, Penn Badgley) is super hot and garners lots of press. Hopefully the storylines will pick up and get it back on track.
9. Make It Or Break It – ABC Family
Chelsea Hobbs, Josie Loren, Ayla Kell and Cassie Scerbo are the gymnastic Olympic hopefuls at “The Rock” in Boulder Colorado, training for their shot at the big time. ABC Family’s hit show (scoring their second best premiere) gives athletic teen girls a chance to see and strive for something more than boys and clothes.
8. True Jackson, VP - Nickelodeon
Keke Palmer is terrific as the Vice President of a teen clothing line and her navigation in the world of business and all the normal drama that comes from being a teenager. Palmer is funny, charming and talented. Her costars Ashley Argota and Matt Shively play off her well and the premiere set lots of ratings records for the network.

If you haven’t started watching The Vampire Diaries, what are you waiting for? The CW Network has a juicy hit on their hands and has extended the show another 9 episodes for the year. With all the deaths of the peripheral characters, there has to be an injection of fresh blood (pun intended!) for the thirsty Damon (played so deliciously by Ian Somerhalder) to snack on.
EW.com is reporting Faris will be a buddy of Matt’s (Zach Roerig) who will bartend at the only place in town where everyone goes, Mystic Grill. A possible romance/hook-up could be in the future for Faris’s character Ben. Sean also starred with another former vampire, Cam Gigandet, in the flick Never Back Down.
TVGuide.com says Jeremy (Stephen R. McQueen) will get a gorgeous friend in newcomer Malese Jow. Jow will play Anna and give Jeremy some friendship, comfort and perhaps something more. The pair are expected to uncover a mystery. Jow is no stranger to TV with roles in Unfabulous with Emma Roberts, Hannah Montana with Miley Cyrus and iCarly with Miranda Cosgrove.
Love love love The Vampire Diaries.

Good news to everyone who has been watching The Vampire Diaries - Variety is reporting that the CW Network is ordering nine more scripts for the sci-fi drama starring Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, and Paul Wesley.
As for “Diaries,” the CW has picked up nine more scripts – a good sign that a full-season order is in the cards. And it’s no surprise: Show holds the record as the CW’s most-watched premiere ever (4.9 million viewers).
One Tree Hill is also getting thirteen more eps and Melrose Place (yawn!) is getting six more.
I love Somerhalder’s evil Damon. I miss him on LOST as Boone, but look forward to his return on the island (or where ever the castaways may be…)

The CW network is putting forth it’s vampire show, Vampire Diaries this fall with mega hot actor Ian Somerhalder cast as bad boy/vampire Damon (go here to learn more about the character Damon from the books.) In the video from MTV.com Somerhalder explains that the show will be ‘edgier’ than Twilight simply because it’s a weekly show and that while he thinks the comparisons are good, the end result will be different.
Have you read the books – both the Twilight series from Stephanie Meyers and The Vampire Diaries from LJ Smith? What do you think? Are you going to watch this show this fall?
By the way – Somerhalder was on ABC’s highly popular show LOST a couple of years back but his character, Boone, was killed off. At the San Diego Comic Con this year he confirmed he will be back when LOST does an apparent ‘reboot’ in time.
I don’t care where I get to see those blue blue eyes – I just adore him and he gives Robert Pattinson a run for his money in the sexy vampire department.
