AnnaSophia Robb as “Carrie.”

The Carrie Diaries, the struggling-upward-teen-in-New-York Sex and the City prequel, is taking the Monday 8 p.m. time slot of the wealthy-teens-in-New-York soap Gossip Girl, once that show goes off-air at the end of the year.

Diaries and its time slot predecessor share executive producers in the form of Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, but hopefully the new show will burn off its buzz a bit less quickly than did the ratings mayfly that was Gossip Girl. We’ll find out beginning Monday, January 14.
