Gossip Girl kicks off CW fall

The OMGs, BTWs, and IDKs will be flying on September 1, as the CW has announced that its fall 2008-2009 season will kick off with the sophomore season of Gossip Girl, the much-hyped hit and centerpiece of the network's new aim. Paired with the return of Gossip Girl will be the premiere of the sixth season of One Tree Hill.

The CW's biggest new series, the revamped 90210, will debut the following day with a two-hour season premiere. The new show is expected to feature Beverly Hills, 90210 alumnae Jennie Garth, Shannen Doherty, and Tori Spelling, and follow a new generation of kids in the famous zip code.

Paired with it will be Privileged, which will make its premiere the following week, September 9. The drama is based on the book How to Teach Filthy Rich Girls, and stars JoAnna Garcia as a tutor to a pair of twin sisters in Palm Beach.

Wednesday nights have been designated fashion night, with America's Next Top Model sashaying onto televisions on September 3 with a two-hour season premiere. On October 29, Wednesdays will play host to the new reality show Stylista, which sees contestants vying for a job at a high-profile fashion magazine.

Thursdays will look familiar with the pairing of Smallville and Supernatural, both of which show off new seasons on September 18.

Finally, Friday October 3 will see the season premieres of Everybody Hates Chris and The Game.

Midseason entries Reaper and 13 - Fear is Real will have their premieres announced at a later date.

The network also announced that all of its comedy and drama programming will be broadcast in high definition.
