  • Jim

    Sayonara BATB.

  • Robsten_Fan

    Well Done! :D :D

  • breathesgelatin

    Maybe Sayonara Tomorrow People, too. I’m glad because this means Reign is probably more likely to make it. I have been watching both Tomorrow People and Reign, but I like Reign a lot more than TP.

  • Mumbo

    Well there’s the death knell for Beauty and the Beast.

    Glad Whose Line is back earlier than I thought!

  • Jeff (Canada)

    What does this say for The 100’s future? There’s only 11 possible Wednesdays they can show it on until the end of May.

  • Simon

    The 100 getting the Arrow lead-in! YES! Hopefully it fares better than The Tomorrow People did.

  • CrimTV

    Exactly what I predicted. The CW obviously had this schedule planned but were just waiting for TTP’s rating before deciding to move it to Monday.

  • LoopyZach

    No too bad for HoD!
    BATB is dead!

    Amells’ night IS OVER!

  • caster-percy-stydia

    Hart of Dixie :( whyyyy? I love this show so freaking much, but now I’m worried of,how it will do on Fridays

  • Shepherd

    man, was hoping T100 would premier sooner. I wonder how many episodes of Whose they have planned. Sorry BaTB fans, looks like they need some time to write a conclusion to the series.

  • Me

    Yeeees!!!!! I knew it! Goddamit! I said that TTP was moving to Mondays and those losers were going to Fridays! :D

  • nerv

    Looks like the CW has some faith on The 100. This is practical since TTP is wasting Arrow’s great lead in.

  • Valentin

    WHY HART OF DIXIE?!
    Hope it will do well but after encores? SERIOUSLY?!

  • Lex

    Wait so what happen to BATB?

  • Billiam

    According to this, HOD is moving to Fridays at 9 as of March 21…. any bets on where their ratings will be? Even though I’m a fan, I can’t see it retaining a 0.4. I’m thinking 0.3.

  • nerv

    Can we expect a summer burnoff for BATB?

  • CrimTV

    BATB will probably just return in late May, early June and air the remaining episodes, or the episode order was cut?

  • Benjamin

    For The 100.

    1) The CW has been insisting that they are moving towards year round programming. If they let The 100 bleed into Summer despite renewing it, they can cite this as evidence of that trend.

    2) If it is cancelled due to low ratings, there is no harm in letting it run into June.

    3) If it is a hit, the CW could stop it at the end of May sweeps and use the leftover episodes in the fall as the start of Season 2.

  • JJM

    This is probably the best thing they could do. If HoD can’t manage on Friday then only the fans are to blame. Three seasons is long long enough to carry a show.
    As for Star-Crossed, if it can’t help BatB increase it’s ratings then it needs to be canceled. TTP should also follow BatB if it’s going to continue pulling anything 0.5 and below.
    The only things worth renewing right now are SPN, Arrow, TVD, The Originals, and and possibly Reign and HoD depending on how it’s ratings go on Friday.

  • Shepherd

    @nerv

    That seems to be the case. Last spring/ early summer burn off. I’m sure they’re working on rewriting the final episodes as we speak.
