It's about time these two last place networks join forces to try to take on the big 4. The new network will be called CW and it will launch this fall. The younger network will have 30 hours of programming a week to be decided on by the 50-50 partnership of the WB and CBS Corp execs. What will be the fate of the Gilmore Girls, Smallville, Everybody Hates Chris, Veronica Mars and new Aquaman? Who knows, but one show we are pulling for is the Nick Lachey show.

Defamer has more on the merger.
