Freshman network gives Chris Rock show green light for next season.
Jan 19, 2007
CW loves Chris
tv_critics_07.jpg

CW's sophomore comedy Everybody Hates Chris has been given an early pickup for next season. This marks the first pickup the network has given to any of its current schedule.

Chris premiered on UPN after much hype in the 2005-06 season, scoring strong ratings and critical accolades. The show has been nominated both seasons by the NAACP for its NAACP Image Awards, and has recieved Emmy, Golden Globe, and People's Choice award nominations.

The CW has given the Chris Rock-produced show a full third-season order of 22 episodes. Early in the fall season, Chris and the CW's comedy block--Girlfriends, All of Us, and The Game--stumbled in the ratings on Sunday nights, but after the net moved the shows to Monday nights the numbers improved.

"Under the creative guidance of Chris Rock and Ali LeRoi ...

The CW sends first official notice to stations

The CW, the new network to be formed by the merging of UPN and The WB, sent out a letter Monday night to 200 affiliates of those networks offering insight into upcoming plans, Broadcasting & Cable reports today. This is the first official contact affiliates have had since the surprise announcement on January 24 that the two networks would be closing down and forming one new net, co-owned by Warner Bros. and UPN parent CBS Corp.

"The CW represents a unique opportunity to partner on a long-term basis with the CBS Corporation and Warner Bros. Entertainment in the creation of something new and extremely rare--a major new broadcast television network, one which will provide its local affiliates with popular, proven programming in precisely the demographic categories that will build value with advertisers, viewers and shareholders," said CBS chairman Les Moonves and Warner ...

Supernatural among early CW renewals

Eric Kripke (and all you Supernatural fans), you can breathe easily. When the creator of Supernatural spoke to TV.com in late January, he said, "I'm officially nervous" when the topic of his show getting renewed for a fourth season came up.

The CW today announced its batch of early pickups for this fall's season, and Supernatural--about a pair of brothers who hunt demons across the country--was one of six shows that have been cleared to return by the network. Though Supernatural's return wasn't necessarily a lock, between Kripke's nervousness, its new competition in Lost (which moved time slots and now butts heads with Supernatural), and CW's disappointing cancellations last year (ahem Veronica Mars, Gilmore Girls), the show's devout fans were understandably on edge.

Also returning next year will be Supernatural's lead in, the Superman-as-a-youngster drama Smallville. The show will return ...

Ratings: Studio slumps, CW bumps

The fictional Studio 60 may be gaining in the ratings, but the real Studio 60 is doing the reverse.

Last night's episode of the series about a fictional sketch comedy show fell again in the ratings, 15 percent from last week, down to 7.8 million viewers. NBC's Deal and Heroes helped the net win the night in the 18-49-year-old demographic.

The news for fledgling network CW was much better. The sitcom block of Everybody Hates Chris, All of Us, The Game, and Girlfriends saw a 15 percent uptick in the ratings after being swapped into Monday nights.

At 8 p.m., NBC led with Deal or No Deal at 5.2. ABC earned a 3.6 for Wife Swap, and CBS scored a 3.2 for the combination of How I Met Your Mother at 3.4 and ...

The CW readies summer marketing assault

The CW, the network that will rise this fall from the ashes of the WB and UPN, gave advertisers and media buyers a glimpse Wednesday of what its schedule might look like.

Emphasizing that the network will have a "laser focus" on 18- to 34-year-olds, CW executives spotlighted the drama and comedy pilots in development and highlighted several current WB Network and UPN series that might make it to the schedule.

The CW is a joint venture of CBS Corp. and Warner Bros. Entertainment, the respective owners of UPN and the WB.

"Our strength is having high-quality hits that it would take another [new] network years to develop," said Dawn Ostroff, the CW's president of entertainment.

While Ostroff declined to specify which shows would come over from UPN and the WB, it is likely that the UPN shows Everybody Hates Chris ...

The schedule of the new network slowly takes shape. Will your favorite show make the grade?

News of The CW

When the UPN and The WB announced they were merging to become a single network, called The CW, there were questions about what would happen to many of their respective shows. Will low-rated but much-loved shows be swiftly killed off? As diehard fans know, it's difficult enough to get one network to listen to reason, let alone two.

According to a January 26 report on zap2it.com, fans of Tyra Banks and her cadre of pouty young wannabes can relax: America's Next Top Model will continue strutting its stuff on the new network. The show has been enjoying its highest ratings this season, and it had already been green-lighted for another two cycles by UPN before the merger was announced. Also probable survivors: Smallville, Everybody Hates Chris, and Gilmore Girls.

In a January 27 press release, the network intimated that WWE Smackdown will also be making the jump ...

CW announces schedule, Reaper included

The CW got into the scheduling mood today, announcing its 2008-2009 schedule in New York City, and it's sticking with what works for it. That means spoiled rich teens, spoiled aspiring models, and a sci-fi Thursday.

Word broke yesterday that the network was picking up three new shows, but no one knew where they would fit into the schedule until today.

Monday nights will leave the hallways in schools buzzing the next morning, as Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill take over the first day of the work week.

Tuesday nights continue the chatter, with a pair of new teen-targeting soapy dramas, including the much-hyped Beverly Hills, 90210 redux, simply dubbed 90210. That will be followed by Surviving the Filthy Rich, which sees a young woman live the glamorous life of a live-in tutor to a pair of super-wealthy teenage girls.

Wednesday is makeover day, with a pair of ...

Motivated by his childhood experiences, Emmy Award-winner/actor/comedian Chris Rock, narrates this very hilarious & touching story of a teenager growing up as the oldest of three children in Brooklyn, New York during the early 1980s. Uprooted to a neighborhood and bused into a primarily white middle school two hours away by his strict, hard-working parents, Chris (played by Tyler James Williams) struggles to find his place, all while keeping his younger brother & sister in line at home and surmounting the tests of junior high school. This dependable, resilient teen brings a unique, comedic spin to his everyday trials & upsets in UPN's new single-camera comedy, "Everybody Hates Chris." The year that Chris turned 13 was 1982. Filled with dreams that being a teenager would be really cool, Chris' entry into adolescence is turning out to be less pleasant. Moved from the projects to the tough "Bed-Stuy" neighborhood of Brooklyn, Chris is still stuck in his big brother role. As the family's "emergency adult," he's accountable for taking care of his younger brother Drew (played by Tequan Richmond), and his younger sister Tonya (played by Imani Hakim) while his parents are working; Drew, although younger, is taller and more confident than Chris, while Tonya is the baby of the family, who gets all of the attention from his parents. Chris' rough, cost-conscious father Julius (played by Terry Crews) works numerous jobs in order to properly support his family. Meanwhile, his very strict, sassy mother Rochelle (played by Tichina Arnold), who works part-time in a small real estate office, runs the household on a very tight budget, while demanding the best for her children. With his mother strong-minded to see him in a good school, Chris reluctantly faces multiple bus transfers each day to attend Corleone Junior High School in the fiercely Italian neighborhood, South Shore. Although being an immediate target for bullies, Chris' innate charm and sharp wit enable him to make new friends at school, such as Greg (played by Vincent Martella), another smart, nice kid...who can't fight, by the way. As Chris Rock pointedly looks back, his younger self is set to find what his family already knows: Chris' sharp, scrappy character is going to take him places. But first, he's going to have to think, talk or run his way through one growing experience after another at both home and school, and on any number of buses along the way. "Everybody Hates Chris" is produced by 3 Art Entertainment and Paramount Studios.moreless
