Meet Supernatural’s new companions on Friday night.
For those of you again who arenâ€™t savvy with Twitter and wonder what was being said at todayâ€™s CW upfront presentation, here are the highlights:
First, the schedule! No big surprises, especially with Supernatural. It stays where it is, Fridays at 9pm, following Nikita at 8pm. Gossip Girl and 90210 are on different nights again, but Iâ€™m not sure thatâ€™s anything major.
8 pm Gossip Girl (New Time)
9 pm Hart of Dixie (New Series)
8 pm 90210 (New Night)
9 pm Ringer (New Series)
8 pm H8R (New Series)
9 pm Americaâ€™s Next Top Model
8 pm The Vampire Diaries
9 pm The Secret Circle (New Series)
8 pm Nikita (New Night)
9 pm Supernatural
Since the press release is rather spoilery about the returning fall shows I wonâ€™t share it here. For those of you still curious, I suggest you go to our Spoiler Page for the info about Supernatural. I donâ€™t think it gives away the farm, but itâ€™s spoilery.
There are two interesting things I noticed in the press release though about Supernatural. First, Misha Collins is again listed in the cast as a series regular, probably adding some relief to those worried about his status, and Eric Kripke and Ben Edlund are noticeably absent from the Executive Producers list. That could be a typo, or it could mean their roles are being scaled back to a consulting capacity. More to come on that.
In other news, as anticipated, this will be One Tree Hillâ€™s last season and will be back midseason. By midseason, that means filling in repeats gaps for Gossip Girl, 90210, or Americaâ€™s Next Top Model or covering for a failed show. Out of all the blurbs I read announcing this, I liked the take from TV By The Numbers the best:
Itâ€™s being reported on Twitter that promos for the new CW fall shows will begin airing tonight during the encore showing of the Smallville series finale. Kind of fitting, huh? Previewing the new with a retiring show? Yeah, I give the irony a bit ole â€œmehâ€ myself. Iâ€™m sure those previews will run during tomorrowâ€™s Supernatural finale as well considering thatâ€™s the last finale to air for the network this season.
Apparently Nina Dobrev of The Vampire Diaries and Maggie Q of Nikita looked great in their dresses. Paul (Wesley), Ian (Somerhandler), and Shane (West) looked great too. You see, you even get the fashion and society report from me! Iâ€™m all about catering to the masses.
