Here is the fall lineup for The CW. All times are ET/PT, with new shows in italics. Highlights and analysis follow the grid.

8 p.m. 8:30 p.m. 9 p.m. 9:30 p.m.
Monday Supergirl Valor
Tuesday The Flash Legends of Tomorrow
Wednesday Riverdale (new night) Dynasty
Thursday Supernatural Arrow (new night)
Friday Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (new time) Jane the Virgin (new night)


The CW is shuffling its lineup a bit for next season, moving veterans “Arrow,” “Jane the Virgin” and “Legends of Tomorrow” to different nights and giving “Riverdale” a leadoff spot.

Season 2 of “Riverdale” will lead into the rebooted “Dynasty,” from “Gossip Girl” creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage. It makes sense in terms of flow — both have more than a little bit of nighttime soap DNA — but the network is asking quite a bit of “Riverdale,” which will air opposite “Empire,” “Survivor” and ABC’s comedy block.

Wednesday at 9, incidentally, is where the original “Dynasty” aired on ABC for most of its life — not that the target CW viewer was watching (or even alive) back then.

“Arrow” swaps spots with “Riverdale,” moving to 9 p.m. Thursdays following “Supernatural.” The night will feature the network’s two longest-running current shows.

The fall’s other new show, military drama “Valor,” will air at 9 p.m. Mondays following “Supergirl,” which means a new home for “Jane the Virgin.” It goes to Fridays where it will be paired with “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.”

“The Flash,” The CW’s top-rated show, stays put at 8 on Tuesdays. It will be joined by “Legends of Tomorrow,” which finished this season in that spot.

Veteran shows “The 100,” “iZombie” and “The Originals” are on deck for later in the season, along with two more new series: “Black Lightning,” based on the DC Comics character, and “Life Sentence” starring Lucy Hale.
