The CW Network has set its fall premiere schedule, featuring the debut of three new series, returning favorites and a timeslot flip for the Monday night team of Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill. The CW’s new schedule begins Tuesday, 9/8 with the season premiere of sophomore drama 90210 (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET), followed by the series premiere of the updated version of Melrose Place (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET). As they did once before, 90210 and Melrose Place will combine for a great night of television.
On Wednesday, 9/9, Tyra Banks returns with a two-hour premiere of the new season of America’s Next Top Model (8:00-10:00 p.m. ET), featuring contestants who are petite by modeling standards ─ 5’ 7” and under. The regular Wednesday night lineup begins 9/16 with America’s Next Top Model in the 8:00-9:00 p.m. timeslot, followed by the series premiere of the glamorous new drama The Beautiful Life: TBL (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET). From executive producer Ashton Kutcher, The Beautiful Life: TBL focuses on the daily lives of young models living together in a models’ residence in New York, while struggling to deal with the cutthroat competition and fleeting fame of the fashion world.
On Thursday, 9/10, the new lineup features the premiere of The Vampire Diaries (8:00-9:00p.m. ET) and the return of fan favorite Supernatural (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET). Based on the best-selling book series from Alloy Entertainment, The Vampire Diaries focuses on the battle between two Vampire brothers – one good, one evil – who compete for the love of the same young woman. The Vampire Diaries provides the perfect lead-in to the chilling Supernatural, in which the Winchester brothers battle the other-worldly forces that tore their family apart.
On Monday, 9/14, the smash hit team that made The CW one of the top destinations for young women returns with a new twist: One Tree Hill will take over the 8:00-9:00 p.m. timeslot, while Gossip Girl, moves to the 9:00-10:00 p.m. slot.
Smallville relocates to its new home on Friday, 9/25 (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET), with the non-stop action and classic DC Comics characters viewers love. Smallville will be followed by encore episodes of America’s Next Top Model (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET).
The midseason premiere date for the drama “Life UneXpected,” which was formerly titled “Parental Discretion Advised,” will be announced at a later date.
