Everwood returns to TV

Everwood, the cult favorite that was taken off the WB schedule after the network announced it would merge with UPN, will return to the schedule with two hour-long episodes on Monday, March 27, at 8 p.m.

The two "fresh" episodes (to use WB parlance) are "Ghosts" and "Lost and Found," and they will focus on the relationship of Ephram and Amy, played by Gregory Smith and Emily VanCamp, respectively. "Ghosts" guest-stars Steven R. McQueen, the grandson of Hollywood legend Steve McQueen.

Everwood was taken off the schedule in January when The WB and UPN announced they were each shutting down and merging into a new network, The CW. The CW has not announced the fates of any of their respective shows, such as Smallville and Veronica Mars, but they have ordered several new pilots.

Today CW executives announced they would conduct a major marketing blitz over the summer to prepare the world for the network's imminent launch.

The future of Everwood is further clouded now that show creator Greg Berlanti has signed a seven-figure deal with Touchstone TV to produce new shows.

I don't know how they determine a shows rating. I have never been asked what I watch!!!. This is my only outlet for comments. And Everwood so far is the only one I found worth bothering with.

I missed this show and am delighted to see that it is back on the air! Although where I am I do not get UPN all of the time and have to watch the shows at odd hours. Cannot wait until they get more airtime on my cable company.

My HUGE wish is this: If the powers that be decide to cancel this series, PLEASE allow the writers et al phase it down to the end so that we have a great finale.

However if it were cancelled there will be yet another void for quality programs - voids left when programs like Touched by An Angel, Sue Thomas, FBEye, Doc, Three Wishes, etc., ended (as in Touched & Doc) or were pulled from tv.

Gosh darn, this show had been marketed terribly! It's hard to find when it is on (changing nights & times) and now ~ what was mgmt thinking? Letting Berlanti get away? So many people young & older alike talk about this show in the work place. What a shame.

I'm disappointed ~ I was looking forward to a good full season of Everwood.

Everwood should have never been taken off the air that long, it was not fair at all. CW network better pick it up or I will be so pissed!

Ah, I'm so happy I read this. I didn't know it was a 2-hour night! Everwood is the 2nd best WB show, behind Gilmore Girls, in my opinion.

This article is making it seem like Everwood had a break because the merger was announced when thats not true at all. It was because of Beauty and the Geek. Everwood was in the top ten ratings of viewers, so its not that it would get cancelled because "nobody" watches it, A LOT of people watch it, so i dont know where anyone got that from. Its a great show, and it deserves a spot on the air way more then some other shows out there.

Everwood deserves to return. It is one of the best shows on the network.

Somebody is getting paid WAY TO MUCH to assume what people want to watch - 7th Heaven should have been dumped a LONG time ago - last couple of years has become REAL preachy and the mother and married daughter would embarrass most families to claim them - they are both out of bounds narotic and winey - gees!!
Everwood on the other hand has always had some admirable family dynamics as well as humor and as someone over 40 - (get it WB?- not a teeny bopper)was completely drawn away from the other 3 networks by the WB's Charmed (have been an avid fan) and Everwood, and Smallville which is just frivilous fun to watch and pick at the details - everyone has some memories whether it is comics or past movies or shows that they can pick at the details - LOVED it! when Christopher Reeves was on. Miss BUFFY and ANGEL but have gotten over it. Supernatural is just fluff for girls to see cute guys - the story lines - what there are of them - stink!
REBA is another that is WONDERFUL - please don't be stupid and leave it to fend for itself. Will watch to see just what 'those in charge' NOW have as their take on what the audience wants but doesn't sound like they are listening!!! there is always NBC or CBS or Bravo and TNT (then again are most of them NBC) they seem to listen - take notes!

This article stinks. It says that Everwood is low-rated, when really, it did better than anyone thought it would, and it makes it seem like the hiatus was because of The CW announcement (untrue!).

Once again, Everwood gets the media shaft!

No its not that the networks don't care. The simple fact is that nobody watches the show. The networks are out to make money and if nobody is watching then the show is going to get canceled. It has nothing to do with it being a family show or not.

It will be wonderful to have my favorite show back and for two hours,no less!It is the best show on TV and deserves to be renewed.If the CW doesn't renew Everwood I may boycott the network,no matter what other shows they feature.It would be tragic to cancel a show with such superlative writing,acting,casting,locations,etc.

I guess when you make an enriching family drama with values, wonderful writing and superb acting the networks become afraid. Everwood might not hit their target audience but it hits mine. It is a show I feel good about watching with my kids. Enough of the reality shows and tv magazines. Lets keep the family hour intact. However, don't get the wrong idea, we also watch Smallville, One Tree Hill and Veronica Mars. The WB and UPN have great programming, just don't cancel Everwood!

I like how the article makes it seem they took "Everwood" off the schedule when the CW thing was announced. The plan was to put it on hitaus to show "Beauty and the Geek" that people knew about in late November just like they did last year to show that crappy show "Summerland" .

Everwood and 7th Heaven created the WB Monday - which ran from 2002-05 - and was by far the strongest combo in the history of UPN/7th Heaven. If neither show comes back next year in anyway, I'll be giving my "business" to other networks who appreciate it.

It's about time. Besides Gilmore, Everwood is the most respected and critically acclaimed show on the WB. It's been treated so unfairly and dreck continues to air. It's not fair. It better be back next season. Quality needs to prevail.
