Well, it looks like there’s some more news on The CW front…and it’s a different schedule altogether. Head to Variety for all the details, but for now here’s the RUMOURED schedule.
– Mondays will remain Comedy Night (Which is a mistake against CBS’ similar lineup, and when you consider that they’re owned by the same people it makes even less sense, but whatever) with Everybody Loves Chris, Aliens in America, Girlfriends and The Game.
– Tuesdays will open with Beauty and the Geek and segue into new dramedy Reaper in the spot currently occupied by Veronica Mars
– Wednesday will feature the expected lineup: American’s Next Top Model and Gossip Girl
– Thursday stays the same, with Supernatural sticking onto its tough slot now facing CSI, Grey’s Anatomy AND The Office, with its Smallville lead-in.
– Friday is Smackdown! and Sunday features Wild at Heart as well as ANTM reruns.
– Where’s One Tree Hill, you ask? Well, it’s apparently being held for midseason so it can air 22 uninterrupted episodes like Lost and 24.
EDIT: Final details are out, via Variety:
“Meanwhile, with “One Tree Hill” on the bench, net said show will be dramatically retooled and set four years into the future — after the characters have already graduated from college — when it returns in midseason. Net will post online diaries on its website in the fall to fill viewers in on what happened to the show’s characters during those missing years.”
The fate of Veronica Mars remains uncertain, but with Beauty & the Geek in on Tuesdays there’s certainly a slot open for the show should it return alongside One Tree Hill in the new year.
