THE CW NETWORK ANNOUNCES FALL PREMIERE DATES Three New Scripted Dramas to Premiere in the Fall, Along with Returning Favorites And a Timeslot Flip on Monday Night Midseason Premiere for New Drama “Life UneXpected” (formerly “Parental Discretion Advised”) June 17, 2009 (Burbank, CA) ─ The CW Network has set its fall premiere schedule, featuring the debut of three new series, returning favorites and a timeslot flip for the hit Monday night team of Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill. The CW’s new schedule begins Tuesday, September 8 with the season premiere of sophomore drama 90210 (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET), followed by the series premiere of the updated version of Melrose Place (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET). As they did once before, 90210 and Melrose Place will combine for a great night of television. On Wednesday, September 9, Tyra Banks returns with a two-hour premiere of the new season of America’s Next Top Model (8:00-10:00 p.m. ET), featuring contestants who are petite by modeling standards ─ 5’ 7” and under. The regular Wednesday night lineup begins on September 16 with America’s Next Top Model in the 8:00-9:00 p.m. timeslot, followed by the series premiere of the glamorous new drama The Beautiful Life: TBL (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET). From executive producer Ashton Kutcher, The Beautiful Life: TBL focuses on the daily lives of young models living together in a models’ residence in New York, while struggling to deal with the cutthroat competition and fleeting fame of the fashion world. On Thursday, September 10, the new lineup features the premiere of The Vampire Diaries (8:00-9:00p.m. ET) and the return of fan favorite Supernatural (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET). Based on the best-selling book series from Alloy Entertainment, The Vampire Diaries focuses on the battle between two Vampire brothers – one good, one evil – who compete for the love of the same young woman. The Vampire Diaries provides the perfect lead-in to the chilling Supernatural, in which the Winchester brothers battle the other-worldly forces that tore their family apart. On Monday, September 14, the smash hit team that made The CW one of the top destinations for young women returns with a new twist: One Tree Hill will take over the 8:00-9:00 p.m. timeslot, while television’s most buzzed-about series, Gossip Girl, moves to the 9:00-10:00 p.m. slot. Smallville relocates to its new home on Friday, September 25 (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET), with the non-stop action and classic DC Comics characters viewers love. Smallville will be followed by encore episodes of America’s Next Top Model (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET). The midseason premiere date for the drama “Life UneXpected,” which was formerly titled “Parental Discretion Advised,” will be announced at a later date. Following is The CW’s fall premiere schedule: Tuesday, Sept. 8 8:00-9:00 p.m. “90210” (Season Premiere) 9:00-10:00 p.m. “MELROSE PLACE” (Series Premiere) Wednesday, Sept. 9 8:00-10:00 p.m. “AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL” (2-Hour Season Premiere) Thursday, Sept. 10 8:00-9:00 p.m. “THE VAMPIRE DIARIES” (Series Premiere) 9:00-10:00 p.m. “SUPERNATURAL” (Season Premiere) Monday, Sept. 14 8:00-9:00 p.m. “ONE TREE HILL” (Season Premiere) 9:00-10:00 p.m. “GOSSIP GIRL” (Season Premiere) Wednesday, Sept. 16 8:00-9:00 p.m. “AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL” 9:00-10:00 p.m. “THE BEAUTIFUL LIFE: TBL” (Series Premiere) Friday, Sept. 25 8:00-9:00 p.m. “SMALLVILE” (Season Premiere) 9:00-10:00 p.m. “AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL” (Encore Episodes)

it hasn't been good in years, and it's gotten downright embarrassing with a whole host of squandered potential and missed opportunities. I'm glad to see that they're finally putting it out of its misery.
June 17, 2009, 5:56 p.m. CST
I kick myself every time I watch an episode of this show because I waited so long to give it a shot because 'Ghosts' and 'CW' had to be crap, right? Oh so wrong. SN and Dexter are the best shows on TV right now, bar none.
June 17, 2009, 6:02 p.m. CST
pushed back to 9/20 because they were gonna get creamed by NBC's Football Night in America, as that was the Dallas Cowboys' first game in their new mega-stadium? <p> Now the Emmys are back to their 9/13 slot...because 9/20 is when the MTV Video Music Awards are on, and they raised a stink about it. Ri-fucking-diculous: http://tinyurl.com/kmetmv.

My wife has the first three seasons on dvd, so I decided to start watching because everyone on here says it's so good. I watched the first couple episodes of season 1, then skipped ahead to the last three episodes because everyone (my wife included) said the first season isn't that good and I can mostly skip it. I'm on the second disc of season 2 right now, and so far it's all right but not great.
June 17, 2009, 6:18 p.m. CST
My bad. They were pushed back to 9/13, then today, were re-pushed to 9/20. So they'll get slaughtered in the ratings by Dallas-Giants, then.

Serious question. I assume the show is for little kids...but, doesn't the whole concept (not to mention the promos) make you want to throw your tv out the window?
June 18, 2009, 12:14 a.m. CST
How they both lasted this long is one of the great mysteries of life.
June 18, 2009, 1:13 a.m. CST
long live Smallville.
June 18, 2009, 4:36 a.m. CST
That's a relief. This next season shows a lot of promise. Whereas Whedonverse shows face a new Armageddon every other episode, this one has been building to it for years.

http://tinyurl.com/lqdxtj <p>I don't know what to think... I love the show, but it was planned to be 5 seasons. Fuck it, with Lost going away after next year, it will be good to have Supernatural still on!
June 18, 2009, 8:35 a.m. CST
With SMALLVILLE consigned to a Friday Death Slot, it won't be much longer before I can finally kiss the shitty CW network goodbye.
June 18, 2009, 9:54 a.m. CST
Back in the day, Harry himself would have been all over that...
June 18, 2009, 10:08 a.m. CST
Kripke had a 5 season plan and he should stick to it. Make it a 5 season quality show.
June 18, 2009, 11:59 a.m. CST
Supernatural has yet to disappoint me. Each year it gets better and better
June 18, 2009, 3:25 p.m. CST
buffy is alot like supernatural in the sense that season one was a big giant 'meh.' Season two picked it up great. Season three's season finale is without question the best season finale of any show ever. I just watched hush, which was an incredibly brilliant concept and executed so well.
June 18, 2009, 6:37 p.m. CST
was it cancelled or what?
June 19, 2009, 11 a.m. CST
No.<br><br> Season four in no way, shape, or form, is better than three.
June 19, 2009, 2:59 p.m. CST
It was a good finish, but I wouldnt say that in any way that it was the best finale ever. If 4 continued with the same quality then I still think it needs one more good season to redeem itself from the first (at which point, by the last few episodes I STILL didnt care if the brothers lived or died.
June 19, 2009, 9:18 p.m. CST
It should be.
