The CW's Summer Schedule Dares You to Watch It


Somewhere in the world, it's lunchtime... for my MASSIVE EGO!

Network television summer schedules are, without a doubt, the worst thing to ever happen. Well, the summerest of all summer schedules was released today, and it comes courtesy of—who else?—The CW. There's a singing show, some models, and the granddaddy of them all, a game show that's basically a high-stakes version of musical chairs.

Here are some series descriptions, followed by the schedule IF YOU DARE TO WATCH!


Oh Sit!, premieres August 15: In this game show that's a result of one CW executive asking a monkey to create a competitor to ABC's Wipeout, 12 people play adult-sized musical chairs for cash prizes. Of course Jaime Kennedy is hosting it.


The Next: Fame Is At Your Doorstep, premieres August 16: Singing competition show! This is produced by Queen Latifah, and the catch here is that the judges and mentors will show up at contestants' doorsteps and drag them off to be on the show, all the while getting a better sense of who the person is by meeting their friends and family and watching their talents as a sandwich artist at Subway. Then they sing their little hearts out "in front of America.*" (*America in this case means maybe a million viewers, tops.)


America's Next Top Model: College Edition, premieres August 24: Everyone's tenth-favorite model show returns with what I'm assuming is a competition between college campuses? This time around, viewers at home will be able to vote for who should stay and who should go, which Tyra Banks will ignore in favor of picking who she wants to win anyway.


The L.A. Complex, returns July 17: Season 2 of this Canadian Melrose Place! I've heard this is actually good, and I'll take their word for it!


Remodeled, returns July 9: You've been on pins and needles and other sharp objects wondering how Season 1 of this docu-drama that centers on model agent Paul Fisher ends ever since it was canceled! Well you'll finally get to see the thrilling conclusion this summer as The CW re-airs Season 1, including the two episodes that never aired because, frankly, the whole show was an embarrassment.

If I didn't know better, I would swear this was the lineup for the crazy network in Weird Al's UHF. Wheel of Fish, anyone?

Nothing on The CW for me this Summer

If they had made a second season for The Secret Circle and put it on the summer schedule, we wouldn't have to mourn for a cancelled show and wouldn't have to worry about it competing against other shows so that more people will watch it and it'll get a chance to build an audience it deserves.

Just think. They could have made a season 2 for The Secret Circle and aired it next Summer and brought in some actual ratings for their Summer season. 10 bucks says not one of these shows outperforms TSC on it's worst day.

Do they seriously expect people to watch that? I guess that's one channel I don't have to worry about juggling on my DVR.

Everyone should not waste their time on the CW and watch Teen Wolf instead, so it can become the megahit it so deserves to be. (I AM TOTALLY SERIOUS)

This looks awful! Perhaps they should have just moved some of the fall shows they cut to the summer to make the network worth watching the next couple of months.

even though this schedule really sucks... there's some good in it. You heard right, the L.A. complex is actually quite awesome. I'm so happy they're airing the 2nd season! :)

FINALLY we get to see how Remodeled is going to end. I spent the last months watching total crap like Awake, Community, Castle or Fringe just to kill time. Now I got something to look forward to, thank you CW!

I'm gonna watch LA Complex again because Jewel Staite made me fall in love with her way back at Farscape and now I'm trapped, but it really isn't that good a show.

Ya, I knew what I meant and you knew what I meant. It's all good.

The LA Complex is the current unwatched gem on the cw. Its a shame they have it stuck to summer series, its far better than the "thank god its ending" gossip girl and is better than what all their new fall programs appear to be..Yes its a tad campy, but its the cw, do we expect game of thrones or homeland? no..its good for what it is, jewel staite is amazing, and its a must watch, especially during the summer drought.

I'm sorry, they really made Musical Chairs into a TV gameshow? That's it, I'm writing the FCC to pull The CW's license, they're clearly not a real network but some sort of sham, a pyramid scheme or a pig in a poke of some kind. No real TV network could put on a primetime MUSICAL CHAIRS gameshow hosted by JAMIE KENNEDY, it's simply not possible. Not UPN, not Dumont, not North Korean Central TV, not Al-Manar, not the network that feeds into the Teletubbies' stomachs... it's simply not conceivably possible.

All this sounds like shit, i can't stand all these reality shows and teen dramas that are just like other ones, why cant we just get reruns of the shows we already watch or movies

EDITOR: Hey Tim, it's "Jamie Kennedy", not Jaime. I can't say I'm surprised your computer didn't auto-correct it, probably doesn't know what to make of Jamie Kennedy like the rest of us.

Haha JT I love you. I'm going to go ahead and blame this on Game of Thrones and note that this is second time today where we've gotten someone's name wrong because we're all so stuck in the world of GoT. (We also said "Arya" instead of "Aria" in the Pretty Little Liars review.) Is it next April yet?

Don't forget Breaking Pointe.

CW exec meeting

Exec 1: Is ballet hot right now?

Exec 2: Must be, we're talking about it.

Exec 1: Lets do a reality show about it then.

Exec 2: Only if the people have absolutely no charisma and make me want to kill myself after watching 10 minutes.

Exec 1: Me and you, we're on the same page. Deal!!
