Gilmore Girls is an Americann television drama/comedy, now in its fourth season. It airs on The WB network in the United States and on Global Television in Canada.

Created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, the hour-long show follows single, thirty-something Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) and her teenaged daughter Rory Gilmore (Alexis Bledel) in the fictitious Connecticut town of Star's Hollow, with many eccentric and quaint characters.

Lorelai's conflicts with her headstrong and wealthy mother are a significant theme in the series. The show's wit and character-based, gentle humour has won it a strong following. With its humour arising from small-town eccentricities, it resembles the American television comedy Northern Exposure. Another similarity is both shows' extensive use of contemporary music — some quite obscure — to help set mood and tone.

Rory was sixteen when the show began; as of the fourth season she is attending Yale University.
