    I really think The CW should move ANTM to Tuesdays at 9 and Capture to Fridays at 9. With WLLIA & ANTM back to back, it could make a killer night for the CW

    ANTM beat The Following in its second hour (and that’s it). Pop the cork on the bottle of bubbly!

    should have saved this for ratings season instead of wasting more money on Nikita
