The CW's Fall Schedule: My Take

The CW's Fall Schedule: My Take

Now that I've had a while to think through the new CW fall schedule, I have some thoughts on which news is good, which is bad and which is still a little baffling. Take a spin through my list, then let me know what you think. (Don't forget to look at my thoughts on the ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox schedules, too!)

  • I know "Veronica Mars" didn't get great ratings, but I don't see the logic behind bringing back the Pussycat Dolls show instead. I really can't say it better than Daisie did: "Who would you rather empower your daughters? The Pussycat Dolls or Veronica Mars?"
  • It could be because the CW's description of it is not very clear, but I don't understand how "Reaper" is going to work. So this kid finds out he's the devil's bounty hunter and he has to reclaim escaped souls. OK, are the souls just floating around invisible to the rest of us? Or have they taken the form of people? And if they're people, how exactly is a Dirt Devil vacuum going to capture them? I'm confused.
  • "One Tree Hill" fans, what do you make of the plans to jump the show four years forward?

A couple more thoughts, so

  • I must admit, I'm really looking forward to "Gossip Girl." I hope it can pick up some of the girl-positive momentum the network had with "Gilmore Girls" and "Veronica Mars" and doesn't become a weak, whiny Mean Girls-lite.
  • Anyone going to watch "CW Now" or "Online Nation"? Anyone? That's what I thought.
  • I'm prematurely dreading both "Crowned" and "Farmer Wants a Wife," while at the same time thinking they both sound like awesome guilty pleasures. I'm such a hypocrite.

*Squee* How did I miss this? Buzz quoted me! Yay! But it's not my quote. *hangs head* It's from one of the VM groups that were trying to save the show; I just can't remember which one. So sad about VM...I hope they do a movie or a comic as Buzz is now reporting. *huggles for Buzz anyway* =)

I went out of my way to make sure I could watch VM since we don't get the CW here. I had my parents (who live in another state) tape it and now I've been watching online. I just hope they release a DVD set soon. I have no reason to want to watch their network now. This lowers the number of shows I consistently watch to one. Looks like I'll be spending a lot more time reading.

Ugh, I was kind of horrified at the new lineup. Dawn Ostroff needs to be fired ASAP. Preferably yesterday. Gossip Girl is the only really promising looking new show, imho; the rest sound mediocre to downright awful. And they've gone and left Supernatural (the only show on the network I watch, and the only one left worth watching) in the Timeslot of Death against not only Grey's Anatomy and CSI, now, but also The Office. From one perspective, I guess it's a vote of confidence that they at least trust it to hold its own, but from another... Way to ensure that one of the most underrated shows on television stays that way, network, especially with the cr*ptastic job you do advertising and promoting it. No love. The only upside is that Grey's Anatomy seems to be positively bleeding viewers this season, and I know a number of people who've given up on it and are now eyeing a certain pair of hot ghost-busting brothers as possible replacements. Here's hoping! :)

I read the Gossip Girl books the show is based off and they are amazing! I'm sure the show can't dissapoint. I am a huge OTH fan, and I actually really like the 4 yrs idea. Maybe now they can actually stick to story lines that fit their age.. who gets married and pregnant in high school (by choice)! Online nation could be good. I'm gonna miss Gilmore Girls, but there was only so many times you could re-do the same story line! Overall, looks good.

Oh my gosh, littlemissvixen, I agree with you so much. I'm looking so forward to that show and also Hidden Palms which starts on May 30 on the CW. Oliver from The OC is on that show. Also, I think it's dumb to jump 4 years. I may not watch it anymore. Actually, I should just stop watching it now. It's stupid.

djhuck i'm there with you. I was going to say that they save one show wich is lame and don't bring anything good to the table. It should be veronica mars :(

The 4 years ahead idea was something they were going to originally try with Veronica Mars. Good to know they're so full of ideas there.

Reaper sounds like Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Their schedule is lame

I only watched the 'CW' for a few shows. Gilmore Girls & One Tree Hill and Veronica when I was home to catch it. Now that the morons over there at the network took away the ONLY good shows. There is no reason to watch it. I wonder if ABC will pick them up.
