For once, a ratings press release doesn't lie. ABC Family's "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" truly did trounce CW's "Gossip Girl" in head-to-head competish in the Monday 8 p.m. slot.

"Teenager" pulled in 3.9 million viewers to "Gossip's" 2.2 million. And "Teenager" beat "Gossip" by a comfortable margin in the demos that matters to CW: persons 12-34, women 18-34 and femmes 12-34.

Clearly, "Teenager" creator/showrunner Brenda Hampton is doing something right.
