    Wow, Whose Line on Friday. Seems like a bit of a waste.

  • Tv Sucks

    We’ll be sure to get you a trophy, CrimTV

  • Adir

    No !! Star-Crossed on Monday ??? it will be without raitings on Mondays !! I Love TTP and this also not will be with raitings .. They killd TTP and Star-Crossed!

  • JJM

    @Oliver: Airing BatB would be more than a waste compared to WLIIA

  • JJA

    Had the CW moved “Supernatural” or “The Originals” to Monday, I’d say they were trying to salvage the night.

    Instead, they move bubble show “The Tomorrow People” and pair it with new show “Star-Crossed.” This suggests that the CW does NOT have much faith in either of these shows.

    By contrast, “The 100″ has been given a great time-slot after “Arrow.”

    Also, “Beauty & The Beast” really is dead now. Hope they give it closure for the fans.

  • JJA

    One final note: in the “Reign vs. The Tomorrow People” smack down, I’d say Reign is winning.

  • anon

    @Charmed IDK about that with TCD, etc. Even though I agree that HOD/TCD would be a good match, I doubt both are returning, especially on Mondays…and especially if TTP & Starcrossed perform better whatsoever than HOD/BATB did on Mondays so far this season. (Even if TTP’s ratings have decreased since it’s series debut, it has still hit better numbers over all than either other show has performed on Mondays this season.)

    Most likely, if HOD is renewed for a S4, it’ll probably only get 6-10 episodes (or 13 if they’re feeling generous) and air on Fridays, like they did with TCD & Nikita this season. (And TCD is a goner, like BATB, most likely.)

  • Jon

    Yeah thats definitely it for BatB and TCD

  • zilla-rilla

    YAY Reign keeps its place. This is almost exactly what I expected the schedule to look like. Minus the ‘Whose Line’ part. So, is BATB just running episodes all the way through until March 10th and that’s its 22 for the year? Or was its order reduced?
    Also. For Reign fans, the mid season finale is EPIC. (Canada gets it Wednesdays, suckas) so don’t miss it!

  • CrimTV

    @JJA

    Why would CW split up The Originals and Supernatural when they have now boosted Tuesday nights?

  • ToXiX

    I wish CBS would hurry up and announce their midseason schedule.

  • Percysowner

    @CrimTV totally agree that splitting SPN and TO would be a foolish move at this time. Next year they may separate them the way they did Arrow and SPN in an attempt to build Mondays. I hope they don’t move them because keeping a winning night seems like a good idea to me. But I’m sure they would like to have four strong nights instead of 2-3.

  • JJA

    @CrimeTV–for the same reason the CW split “Arrow” and “Supernatural,” despite Wednesday nights doing so well last year.

  • Noel

    This will be interesting. What if The 100 gets worse ratings than Tomorrow people on that slot? I just don’t see the Arrow audience watching the 100. Star Crossed seemed more fitting for the Hart of Dixie audience. Like somebody else mentioned, Putting originals or supernatural on Monday could really save that night. But I guess they will try that on the next fall. So much for Amell wednesdays.

  • Mbento

    Hart of Dixie maybe have another season (syndication gods) on friday… beauty and the beast is dead. If the 100 works i believe that maybe star crossed e tomorrow people my survive it will depends on the new shows and slots needed.

  • iSayso

    Much ado about nuttin!’

  • THE OLD MAN

    Pretty decent schedule

  • david

    Good midseason schedule. Good to have the One Hundred on Wednesdays after Arrow. It makes eince to move The Tomorrow People to Mondays as it was not really benifiting by Arrow. Interesting to see Who’s Line on Fridays in March, i thinking they want to help Fridays improve and they ordered 24 more episodes of the show so they have a lot to use. I think Heart of Dixie will get a .3 or so on Fridays at 9.

  • Ryan

    not good for HOD Fridays are usually the death of a show

  • Alan

    TTP = Dead
    Star Crossed = Dead
    The 100 = It might do well because of Arrow and a lot of people wants to see it!

    Star Crossed should have been put on Reign’s spot!
