The CW is flipping part of its schedule, moving the flagging Sunday comedy block to Monday and former Monday inhabitants America's Next Top Model,7th Heaven, and Runaway to Sunday.
On Monday, October 9, The CW will rerun the season premieres of Everybody Hates Chris, All of Us, Girlfriends, and its spin-off The Game. Original episodes will return on Monday, October 16. On Sunday, October 15, the network will run an encore of the previous Wednesday's America's Next Top Model at 7 p.m., followed by original episodes of 7th Heaven at 8 p.m. and Runaway at 9 p.m.
Sunday is a crowded field, and ABC's Desperate Housewives and new Brothers and Sisters, along with NBC's football and Fox's animated block, combined to make things difficult for the CW's comedy block. Chris pulled in a weak 3 million viewers in its October 2 premiere.
The CW's Monday schedule, effective October 9, is as follows:
8:00-8:30 p.m. Everybody Hates Chris
8:30-9:00 p.m. All Of Us
9:00-9:30 p.m. Girlfriends
9:30-10:00 p.m. The Game
The CW's Sunday schedule, effective October 15, is as follows:
7:00-8:00 p.m. America's Next Top Model
8:00-9:00 p.m. 7th Heaven
9:00-10:00 p.m. Runaway
