Other than Angel (And what a pairing with 7th Heaven.. That has to be the worst scheduling job EVER in the history of TV.), is there even a reason to watch the WB anymore? I mean, no Buffy, No Roswell (Never got into it but I hear it's good)...what's left? NIKKI?

Is that show coming back at all? PLEEEEZE say yes!

Now there's a brilliant scheduling strategy. *** This weekend's double feature on the WB: "Mary Poppins" followed by "The Exorcist."

That's great- right when I used to watch Roswell now I can watch Angel-better than watching those stupid comedies on UPN.

I'd take this alleged report with a grain of salt until the official schedule is released, not the "likely" one. It's nothing to get worked up over. Interesting stuff though. Maybe the Angel crossovers will continue, with 7th Heaven. heheh. "And now, a 2 hour Angel/7thHeaven event on the WB's new monday. Tonight, Happy the dog ventures to the city of Angels where he will sing/howl in the Demon Kareoke bar for the fate of the Camdens, who have been caught in dreaded season five limbo." hehehehh.... I should write fan fiction. hell even worse contrived plots have aired on the WB.

As far as competition goes, Monday night is actually pretty good since there is no other Sci-fi show around other channel. However, this would make crossover more difficult because this means "Angel" will be aired first before "Buffy"

I never thought I'd think of UPN as a last hope for anything, but here it is. It's in your hands to turn this around, and I promise I'll watch your network if you do. Taking Buffy wasn't really a favor, but THIS is and I for one will owe you! I'll even start watching wrestling if you take Roswell. And heck, you get to have a great night of TV with Buffy and Roswell until you can pick up Angel too. And if I were you, I'd get ready to snatch Angel when WB cancels it after the first thirteen episodes next season because that's what they're probably planning with this Monday schedule they've got. 7th Heaven and Angel together?******And WTF, no more Grosse Pointe???!!!! Herc, this IS the actual final schedule, right? DarthJoxer is incorrect when he says its just speculation, yes? I want to know my ensuing cardiac arrest here wasn't caused by a guess!

Dangit, I missed that one word I almost fell out of my chair! Okay, we're not screwed yet. It could still come about though. Shit.

I was going to write what bad pairing I thought 7th Heaven and Angel were but I see people already beat me to it. If we can see what a bad choice that is, why cant WB. I would put Gilmore Girls with 7th Heaven and Angel with Smallsville. And whats with the Felicity half season thing again? Didnt they learn this season? I guess Jack and Jill is gone which I dont mind. They could put Buffy and Roswell together on the WB schedule.

I don't watch Charmed but it seems like a more logical paring since both shows deal with the Supernatural. Heck, they could even do cross overs like they did with Buffy. It would make more sense then 7th Heaven, thats for sure!

I am so ticked that Baby Blues isn't on WB's line-up. WB dumps Baby Blues in the middle of last summer, hoping it'll go away quietly. But the show was actually damn funny and infinitely better than the dull comic strip it's based on. For those who didn't see it (and that's like everyone), it was freakin' hilarious. I hate WB so much... -Rodney Bitterman

WB needs to learn a little something about "Lead in". I don't know for sure, but I am pretty sure that the audience for 7th Heaven are not big Angel fans, makes me wonder if there is a conspiracy against the show. As for Roswell, I do hope UPN picks it up. It would be nicely paired with either Buffy or Enterprise. I am also glad that Gilmore Girls is back in a better time slot. IMHO, Amy Sherman Palladino is the third best writer/producer behind Aaron Sorkin and Josh Whedon, Stars Hollow, CN is the coolest TV address since Cicely, AK. My only fear is that UPN will put Buffy in the same slot. (Thank god I have two VCR's)

So 7th Heaven -a family dramedy about all good things godly- will know be the lead in for Angel -a horror dramedy about vampires and things ungodly. What's next a teaming of Pat Robertson's 700 Club and Showtimes Queer as Folk?

YES!!! DIE, I SAY! DIEEEE!!! Now that's out of the way, what kind of sh*thole schedule is this? Has the WB gone mental! Dawson's Creek lives? Felecity lives? Why is it networks always continue HIGH SCHOOL BASED SHOWS after high school is over? Remember what happen to Saved by the Bell when it went college? Even the enlarged chest of TAT couldn't save them from death and destruction. DC should have ended, no point running the stupid thing any longer. And Roswell, I hated it but I know it topped DC in the ratings run. Moving Angel to 9pm on a Monday? Yes, let's go head-to-head with the WWF and RAW is war. Good thinking WB, but I already know why you did it. You got scared of that crappy DARK ANGEL! COWARDS! ALL COWARDS!! THREE REALITY SERIES...I must agree with the board on the overall view of the sched. BURN IN HELL YOU F'N DICKHEADS!!!!

If Roswell "failed" following 7th Heaven, then how would the darker, more adult Angel thrive there. If this schedule winds up true, then WB is indeed trying to kill Angel. Fuckin assholes. Oh, and I'm sort of sad to see Popular go, but it had stopped being a comedy anyway.
May 14, 2001, 11:18 p.m. CST
I already knew about Angel's slot change and I thought, "Ok, having 7th Heaven as a lead-in is retarded, but that's the slot Buffy started out with so it can't be all bad" Then I read about, and remembered, what's also on Mondays at 9: Raw is War. Are they crazy? The audience that likes that is also the aludience that likes Angel. I should know, my whole family is that audience. Do they not want to make money?
