If there's one thing that's for sure during this busy week of networks announcing their schedules, you better be smokin' hot if you want a shot at The CW's lineup. The network made its three pickups, leaving little to the imagination.
While most networks have pilot projects at each other's throats vying for a spot on the schedule, the CW's forecast was pretty clear--let's give the
advertisers kids what they want! That meant prepping a Melrose Place remake, a vampire drama, and a Gossip Girl spinoff. Easiest scheduling decision ever, right?
We're not going to sugarcoat anything--things look grim for most shows not considered locks to be returning next fall. The proliferation of cable, the anti-proliferation of the economy, and the relocation of Jay Leno are making things difficult for all programs "on the bubble."
THE CW SOURCE HAS THE SCOOP ON THE LAST EPISODE OF PRIVELEGED. READ MORE
More than a few people can let out a sigh of relief today, as The CW has renewed a half dozen of its staples. The early pick ups are not only a good sign that the show will live on, but also the network. As the underappreciated stepchild to the major networks, the CW's unimpressive ratings made it a candidate to go belly up.
Good news Reaper fans: you won't have to wait as long as you thought to start watching Reaper's second season. The CW has tinkered with its midseason schedule, moving the season-two premiere of Reaper up a fortnight and bumping around 90210 and Privileged.
Good news, Privileged fans: Your show isn't going anywhere anytime soon. The CW has ordered five more episodes of the rookie dramedy, giving it a boost of confidence and (at least) an 18-episode first season.
The people have spoken, and they love House, Heroes, and American Idol. The 35th Annual People's Choice Awards has revealed its lengthy list of nominees, and it's full of small-screen favorites.
The CW may be all hot and heavy over its two favorite programs--the teenage sexcapades known as Gossip Girl and 90210--but there's one other fresh face on the network that's quite the little charmer.
Privileged may not be getting the press its elder sisters are receiving, but that doesn't mean that the CW has completely ignored it.
In Five Reasons, TV.com takes an early look at upcoming episodes of shows and scoops what's good and bad about the program we just watched. We're not telling you to watch it or telling you to avoid it--we're just offering up our two cents as a helpful guide.
"How they achieve that 'A' is of little importance to me. Or was I not clear about that?"--Laurel Limoges, Privileged
That's the kind of pressure that's squashing Megan Smith (Reba's JoAnna Garcia) in Privileged, the latest of CW's young, hot, rich, and white programs aimed at young women.
