    Reign will BOMB.

    Not Melrose Place-bomb, but Lonsestar-bomb (can’t remmeber that only CW show that got pulled after 2 episodes).

    Star-crossed and The 100 will inherit the Reign and the Nikita/Carrie timeslots — one at the high-profile Thursday 9pm slot and the other at Graveyard Friday…

    Out of the 5 new shows, Tomorrow People and The Originals could be CW-hits.

  • Fake Me Out

    I have a fondness for the simple things … not a lot of bells & whistles … if you’re the same and want just the facts/details without a bunch of window dressing then give the Fall 2013 Primetime Grid @ a try. No slight against TVbtN as this place has other advantages that doe not … use both and get the best of both worlds.


  • Grant

    First im glad HoD survived its near execution, but really looks stupid to/for cause ill have 1 show a night mon-thur (HoD,tO,tTP,tVD)

  • Jason

    @ Justin121,
    Do you mean “The Beautiful Life”? It was pulled after 2 episodes on The C.W. back in Fall 2009.

  • John A

    Lol at Nikita fans asking about Nikita. Don’t you guys know its airing at MIDSEASON? This is the FALL Schedule.

  • insertnamehere

    You all do know that TCD is based on the prequels to SATC. There are two books, making it unlikely that there will be more than two seasons.

  • Timmy G

    @ Grant, HOD is extremely stable at the 0.6/0.5 range; there was no way the CW was canceling it; the only two shows that were truly in question before their renewals were BATB and TCD. No one expected TCD to return though, definitely the biggest shock of this renewal season.

    It makes sense that the Originals premieres after TVD because yeah, more than likely they’ll use the 8th to show the backdoor pilot again. Plus, TVD will be off for Thanksgiving again I’m sure, which means the intention will be for most of their shows to air 9 episodes again before Christmas. And I’m optimistic that Supernatural will finally break the dreaded Tuesday at 9 curse.

  • CrimTV


    Lone Star aired on Fox, not The CW.

  • CrimTV


    TVD Season 5 has 22 episodes, not 23.

  • dave

    Nothing on nikita the only show i watch on this channel

  • david

    That makes sence for ANTM to be done at the end of October or the begaining lik last season. I remember it ended in mid November. I am thinking when it ends they will show the last six Nikita episodes before the end of this year. I wonder what they will do with Fridays in January thogh. Maybe put that new show Famous in 12 that they have a partnership with TMZ or move a show that is not doing well to Fridays because they want that show to do well on a better night. That would make more sence.

  • unemployed

    i hope to get to watch TVD in my country a week after October 10

  • mia


    So that means season 4 was only given 23 episodes for the backdoor pilot, I thought so. So its always going to be 22 episodes.

    Hart of Dixie: 0.6 – FLOP (but renewed by syndication)

    Supernatural: 1.0
    Arrow: 1.1
    The Tomorrow People: 1.0
    The Vampire Diaries: 1.3
    Reign: 0.7 – FLOP

  • HV

    @FLOP Detector
    I highly doubt that The 100 will be a flop. I think that it will be a successful (well, sucessful by CW standards) series.

  • Dan

    @Oliver – CW just announced that The Tomorrow People and Reign will encore on Friday October 11 at 8 and 9, and The Originals will encore it’s Pilot on Friday October 18 at 8 followed by ANTM at 9. So I guess ANTM will be preempted 1 week and finish up on November 1.
