With the pickup of FIVE new shows, I knew that the CW’s schedule would be cramped. Let me tell you…there are some unusual moves to some veteran shows.
The CW will also shorten it’s season so that the series have less gaps between new episodes (which causes a drop in viewers).
Monday: The CW has moved its veteran series 90210 to a new night, Monday’s at 8pm. Following 90210 will be the final season of Gossip Girl, which means Gossip Girl has been moved from the 8pm time-slot to the 9pm time slot. The Carrie Diaries will premiere in January of 2013 as a mid-season show, which is after Gossip Girls has finished it’s series finale.
Tuesday: Hart of Dixie has been moved to a better time slot, Tuesday’s at 8pm! Considering that the show did better than it’s lead in show Gossip Girl, I think this is the perfect move for the CW. Follow Hart of Dixie will be the CW’s newest doctor drama, Emily Owens M.D., which will premiere in the 9pm time-slot. Please note that the original name for the new series was “First Cut.”
Wednesday: This is the best move…EVER!!! I hated the “Reality Show Wednesdays” because it took up valuable primtime slots for “H8R” and “America’s Next Top Model.” Instead, we will be getting scripted shows. In the 8pm time slot is the CW’s new series, Arrow. Following that will be Season 8 of Supernatural (a move I didn’t see coming). Here’s hoping that these shows do well on Wednesdays…
Thursdays: If it’s not broke don’t fix it, and that’s exactly what they are doing with The Vampire Diaries. The Vampire Diaries will keep it’s Thursday 8pm time-slot. Following that will be another new series, Beauty and the Beast, which looks like a keeper.
Friday: Woah, woah, woah…America’s Next Top Model moved to Fridays at 8pm…which is understandable…but to have it followed by Nikita??? I’m still trying to wrap my head around this change.
No word on their new series Cult yet…but I’m pretty sure it’s going to be a mid-season premiere like The Carrie Diaries.
