Not much to say about the CW’s new schedule. They are super-targeting women 12-34 now and that seems to work for them.
The network brought back “90210″ with modest success last year. Now they are bringing back “Melrose Place,” a personal favorite guilty pleasure of mine from the 1990s. They are also introducing three new shows, including a vampire drama and a show about models.
Monday remains the same with “Gossip Girl” and “One Tree Hill.”
Tuesday brings “90210″ and a new “Melrose Place” with two old cast members, Laura Leighton as Sydney (didn’t she die or something in the first version?) and Thomas Calabro as the evil Dr. Michael Mancini. (top left)
Wednesday features “America’s Next Top Model” followed by a drama with Corbin Bleu (”High School Musical”) and Mischa Barton (”The O.C.”) following around a bunch of models. Gee. there certainly aren’t enough of those on TV nowadays, eh?
Thursday sees “The Vampire Diaries” (which obviously is taking advantage of all the “Twilight” heat and is set in a high school), followed by “Supernatural.”
“Smallville” moves to Fridays, which had been home to two African-American comedies that are no longer (bye, “Everybody Loves Chris” and “The Game”). Midseason at 9 p.m., “Parental Discretion Advised” features a young girl who finds her biological parents. It does not say what the CW will air at 9 p.m. Fridays in the fall.
And Sundays are no longer for the CW.
