CW Fall Schedule Announced; SUPERNATURAL Moves to Tuesdays, ARROW Leads New Sci-Fi Series THE TOMORROW PEOPLE

by     Posted 1 year, 159 days ago

the-cw-logo-slice

Now that anchor series Gossip Girl and 90210 are off the schedule, the CW is reshuffling almost everything to give a push to new series (like putting Reign – a drama about Mary, Queen of Scots as a young woman in France — after veteran hit The Vampire Diaries).  Beauty and Beast, which had occupied that coveted post-Vampire Diaries spot before, has been moved to Mondays, and will air after new episodes of Hart of Dixie.  The changes also pair shows tonally, like new sci-fi series The Tormorrow People, which will premiere after the well-received Arrow (still on Wednesdays), and Vampire Diaries spin-off The Originals, which will air on Tuesdays with the shifted Supernatural.

Though the CW’s numbers can’t compete with the Big Four, the network knows its audience well, and employs social media better than most to promote its series.  Still, it could use a watershed must-see hit to really put it on firm ground.  For details on the new schedule, hit the jump.
