MONDAY

8:00-9:00 P.M. “SUPERGIRL”

SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC character Kara Zor-El, Superman’s (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents’ help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret. Years later at 24, Kara lives in National City assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant. She works alongside her friend and IT technician Winn Schott and famous photographer James Olsen, who Grant just hired away from the Daily Planet to serve as her new art director. However, Kara’s days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw, head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats. Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime. Based on characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, SUPERGIRL is from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” “Arrow”), Ali Adler (“The New Normal,” “Glee”), Andrew Kreisberg (“The Flash,” “Arrow”) and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash”).

9:00-10:00 P.M. “JANE THE VIRGIN”

This has been a year of growth and change for Jane Villanueva as she adapted to her brand new role – as a virgin mother. Totally normal, right? Luckily, she had her mother, Xiomara, and her grandmother, Alba, to lean on, as she struggled to balance graduate school, work, and her son Mateo (aka the cutest kid on the planet). And oh yeah, she was also in a much debated love triangle! Would Jane choose to be with Michael, the steadfast detective? Or Rafael, Mateo’s father? And at last Jane chose Michael! And the wedding planning began. Of course, no one was more thrilled than Jane’s telenovela star father Rogelio, who was #teammichael from the start. Oh, and speaking of Rogelio – he was in love with Jane’s mother, Xo. But alas, he wanted to have kids and she didn’t. So they broke up and he threw himself into his new telenovela… and into his new telenovela headwriter. Complicated right? And speaking of complicated – let’s talk Rafael. He found himself a father of three this season, after his ex-wife Petra inseminated herself with his last sperm sample. And they had twins! Plus, poor Rafael found out his mother was a crime lord. So yeah. Pretty heavy stuff. Also heavy… Rogelio threw Jane the wedding of her dreams. But then, in the final moments, Michael was shot. Which is where we left off… JANE THE VIRGIN is produced by CBS Television Studios and Warner Bros. Television, in association with Electus, with executive producers Jennie Snyder Urman (“Emily Owens, M.D.”), Ben Silverman (“The Biggest Loser”), Gary Pearl (“10.5: Apocalypse”) and Jorge Granier (“Que el Cielo Me Explique”).

TUESDAY

8:00-9:00 P.M. “THE FLASH”

Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with super-speed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash. But Barry wasn’t the only person who was given extraordinary abilities that night; the dark matter also created meta-humans, many of whom have wreaked havoc on the city. New threats also arrived from a parallel earth known as Earth-2, under the direction of an evil speedster named Zoom (Teddy Sears). With the help of his adoptive father, Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), his lifelong best friend and love interest Iris West (Candice Patton), and his scientist friends at S.T.A.R Labs, Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) and Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), as well as Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanaugh) from Earth-2, Barry continues to protect the people of Central City from these powerful threats. Based on the characters from DC, THE FLASH is from by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “Supergirl”), Andrew Kreisberg (“Arrow,” “The Flash”), Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”) and Aaron and Todd Helbing (“Black Sails”).

9:00-10:00 P.M. “NO TOMORROW”

Evie Callahan (Tori Anderson), a risk-averse quality-control assessor, appreciates order. Whenever she’s making a list, “make a list” is both the first thing on it and the first thing crossed off. Such a regimented life has its drawbacks. Her on-again/off-again romance with the sweet, but soft-spoken Timothy (Jesse Rath) has sputtered out. Her career has stalled. Her boss, Deirdre (Amy Pietz), a petty tyrant with breath that could kill a plant, laughs off her ambitions. Then Evie meets charming, free-spirited Xavier Holliday (Joshua Sasse), and the attraction is immediate and electric. He brings a jolt of joyful, rollicking romance into her life. Xavier encourages Evie to carpe that diem, because it’s more fun that way and because, well, the apocalypse is, you know, nigh. He believes humankind has a mere eight months and twelve days until a runaway asteroid smacks us all into stardust. That’s why he made an Apocalyst – a tally of every last thing he wants to do before the world goes kaput. So with the help of her friends – Hank (Jonathan Langdon), a diehard conspiracy theorist, and Kareema (Sarayu Blue), a droll nihilist – Evie must decide whether Xavier is certifiable and whether that even matters, if being with him means living her life more fully. Based on the International Emmy-nominated Brazilian format from Grupo Globo, NO TOMORROW is a romantic comedy with the ultimate ticking clock. NO TOMORROW is from CBS Television Studios and Warner Bros. Television in association with Electus, with executive producers Corinne Brinkerhoff (“American Gothic,” “Jane The Virgin,” “The Good Wife”), Maggie Friedman (“Witches of East End”) and Ben Silverman (“Jane The Virgin,” “The Office”).

WEDNESDAY

8:00-9:00 P.M. “ARROW”

After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice. As the Green Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), his vigilante-trained sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland), former police captain Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), and brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum). But sinister players with a connection to Oliver's past will push the team to its breaking point, threatening everything Oliver's worked for and his legacy as the Green Arrow. Based on the characters from DC, ARROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” “Supergirl”), Marc Guggenheim (“DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” “Eli Stone”) Andrew Kreisberg (“The Flash,” “Eli Stone,” “Warehouse 13”), Wendy Mericle (“Desperate Housewives”) and Sarah Schechter (“The Flash,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”).

9:00-10:00 P.M. “FREQUENCY”

Detective Raimy Sullivan (Peyton List) has always wanted to prove that she is nothing like her father. In 1996, when Raimy was eight years old, NYPD Officer Frank Sullivan (Riley Smith) left Raimy and her mother, Julie (Devin Kelley), behind when he went deep undercover, got corrupted, and got himself killed. Or so the story has always gone. Few people knew about the secret undercover sting operation Frank was really charged with, led by Stan Moreno (Anthony Ruivivar), who has now risen to Deputy Chief of Police. Frank’s former partner, Lieutenant Satch Reyna (Mekhi Phifer), is now Raimy’s mentor and friend, and he has urged her to let go of the hurt and anger she still feels about Frank’s disappearance and death, but the old pain still lingers. Raimy can barely bring herself to discuss Frank, even with her devoted boyfriend, Daniel (Daniel Bonjour), or her childhood friend, Gordo (Lenny Jacobson). Now, twenty years later, Raimy is stunned when a voice suddenly crackles through her father’s old, long-broken ham radio – it’s Frank, somehow transmitting over the airwaves and through the decades from 1996. They’re both shocked and confused, but Raimy shakes Frank to the core when she warns him that the secret sting he is undertaking will lead to his death. Armed with that knowledge, Frank survives the attempt on his life. But changing history has dramatically affected Raimy’s life in the present – and there have been tragic consequences. Separated by twenty years, father and daughter have reunited on a frequency only they can hear, but can they rewrite the story of their lives without risking everyone they love? FREQUENCY is from Warner Bros. Television in association with Lin Pictures, with executive producers Jeremy Carver (“Supernatural”), Toby Emmerich (“The Notebook” feature film), John Rickard (“Horrible Bosses”), Dan Lin (“The LEGO™ Movie,” “Sherlock Holmes”) and Jennifer Gwartz (“Veronica Mars”).

THURSDAY

8:00-9:00 P.M. “DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW”

When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) assembled a disparate group of both heroes and villains – including Firestorm (Victor Garber and Franz Drameh), Atom (Brandon Routh), White Canary (Caity Lotz), Hawkgirl (Ciarra Reneé), Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), and Heatwave (Dominic Purcell) – to confront an unstoppable threat. After saving the world, the Legends of Tomorrow now are charged with protecting time — the past, present, and future — itself. This responsibility will take them across history, bringing them up against a threat unlike humanity has ever known. Based on the characters from DC, DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl”), Marc Guggenheim (“Arrow,” “Eli Stone,” “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”), Andrew Kreisberg (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Eli Stone,” “Warehouse 13”), Phil Klemmer (“The Tomorrow People,” “Chuck”), Chris Fedak (“Forever,” “Chuck”) and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash”).

9:00-10:00 P.M. “SUPERNATURAL”

The thrilling and terrifying journey of the Winchester brothers continues as SUPERNATURAL enters its twelfth season. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) have spent their lives on the road, battling every kind of supernatural threat. Over the years, after countless bloody adventures, they have faced everything from the yellow-eyed demon that killed their mother to vampires, ghosts, shapeshifters, angels and fallen gods. In the show’s eleventh season, the Winchesters found themselves battling an apocalyptic force: the Darkness. Now, rallying help from their allies - both human and supernatural - Sam and Dean are about to go toe-to-toe with the most destructive enemy they've ever seen. The question is, will they win? And at what price? SUPERNATURAL is from Warner Bros. Television in association with Wonderland Sound and Vision, with executive producers Jeremy Carver (“Being Human”) and Phil Sgriccia, and executive consultant Robert Singer (“Midnight Caller”).

FRIDAY

8:00-9:00 P.M. “THE VAMPIRE DIARIES”

Season seven of the THE VAMPIRE DIARIES found our heroes rebuilding their world without Elena. Confronted by the prospect of a decades-long wait for Elena’s return, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) struggled with his heartbreak and relied on his contentious but profound friendship with Bonnie (Kat Graham). Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Caroline (Candice King) began their much-anticipated relationship, which was complicated by Caroline’s unexpected role as surrogate mother to the infant twins left behind when Alaric (Matt Davis) lost his wife. Meanwhile, Damon pursued a vendetta against his mother Lily (guest star Annie Wersching), who had abandoned her sons to care for a vicious brood of vampire-witches called the Heretics – one of whom, Valerie (Elizabeth Blackmore), had loved Stefan ever since their romantic encounter in a previous century. Lily’s misguided choices ultimately caused her own tragic demise and put Mystic Falls in the sights of a formidable nemesis: Rayna Cruz (guest star Leslie-Anne Huff), a supernatural vampire-hunter. Rayna targeted Stefan, forcing him to go on the run and leaving Caroline to make a new start with Alaric. Determined to defeat Rayna, Damon enlisted the help of the Armory, a shadowy group with family ties to Bonnie’s boyfriend Enzo (Michael Malarkey). But the Armory’s deeper agenda robbed Bonnie of her magic and jeopardized her life. To remedy the crisis, Damon and Enzo had to venture into the Armory’s occult vault, where an evil presence overcame them. The triangle of Stefan, Caroline and Alaric will team up with Bonnie in season eight to search for the two most important men in her life – even though Damon and Enzo may be long past saving. THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Outerbanks Entertainment, Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios. The series was developed by Kevin Williamson (“The Following,” “Scream”) & Julie Plec (“The Originals,” “Kyle XY,” “Wasteland”), who serve as executive producers along with Leslie Morgenstein (“Gossip Girl,” “Pretty Little Liars”) and Caroline Dries (“Melrose Place,” “Smallville”).

9:00-10:00 P.M. “CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND”

You know how you’re walking down the street in New York after fleeing your office to avoid a dreaded promotion for a job you don’t want and you’re in a panic and you tried to take a nice calming sedative but you accidentally throw your pills all over the ground and suddenly you see your old summer camp boyfriend Josh Chan (Vincent Rodriguez III), the one you haven’t seen in ten years and then, BOOM, you decide to move to his hometown, where he still lives? And then you don’t admit the truth of why you moved to anyone including yourself for about 9 or 10 months? CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND explores what happens to Rebecca Bunch when this EXACT thing happens to her. Oh, and while this is all happening, she and many of the people she meets burst into song on a regular basis. Last season on CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND, Rebecca moved to a West Covina, California, inspired by her seemingly providential run-in with Josh Chan and started work at a law firm for a new boss, Darryl Whitefeather (Pete Gardner) who is so thrilled she moved to town he doesn’t question why. But new co-worker Paula (Donna Lynne Champlin) instantly sees Rebecca’s true motivation. To Rebecca’s surprise, Paula becomes her greatest ally, best friend and total enabler. They set out to concoct elaborate schemes to throw Rebecca and Josh together and they mostly succeed, re-igniting Josh’s feelings for her, despite the fact that he is still in a long term relationship with Valencia (Gabrielle Ruiz), a haughty yoga instructor who correctly sees Rebecca as a carb-eating threat to her relationship. At the same time, Rebecca pursues an off-again, off-again relationship with Josh’s best friend Greg (Santino Fontana), throwing Josh and Greg’s relationship into turmoil. Rebecca’s arrival has unforeseen consequences for everyone in town – most of all, for herself. As she battles her demons, trying to carve out a happy, useful, moral place in the world, in the town where Josh Chan just so happens to live, Rebecca for the first time in her life has the freedom to make choices, many of them disastrous but hey, who’s counting? In the end, Rebecca finds herself entangled with both Greg and Josh and she has to make a choice between messy reality and her beloved fantasy world. You know how you’re on a date to a wedding with a guy and next thing you know you’re making love on a magic carpet over Southern California...? From CBS Television Studios and Warner Bros. Television, CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND is also executive produced by Bloom, along with Aline Brosh McKenna (“The Devil Wears Prada”), Marc Webb (“500 Days of Summer,” “The Amazing Spider-Man” films) and Erin Ehrlich (“Awkward”).

MIDSEASON

“RIVERDALE”

As a new school year begins, the town of Riverdale is reeling from the recent, tragic death of high school golden boy Jason Blossom — and nothing feels the same… Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) is still the all-American teen, but the summer’s events made him realize that he wants to pursue a career in music — not follow in his dad’s footsteps—despite the sudden end of his forbidden relationship with Riverdale’s young music teacher, Ms. Grundy (Sarah Habel). Which means Archie doesn’t have anyone who will mentor him — certainly not singer Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray), who is only focused on her band, the soon-to-be-world-famous Pussycats. It’s all weighing heavily on Archie’s mind — as is his fractured friendship with budding writer and fellow classmate Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse). Meanwhile, girl-next-door Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) is anxious to see her crush Archie after being away all summer, but she’s not quite ready to reveal her true feelings to him. And Betty’s nerves – which are hardly soothed by her overbearing mother Alice (Mädchen Amick) aren’t the only thing holding her back. When a new student, Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes), arrives in town from New York with her mother Hermione (Marisol Nichols), there’s an undeniable spark between her and Archie, even though Veronica doesn’t want to risk her new friendship with Betty by making a play for Archie. And then there’s Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch)... Riverdale’s Queen Bee is happy to stir up trouble amongst Archie, Betty, and Veronica, but Cheryl is keeping secrets of her own. What, exactly, is she hiding about the mysterious death of her twin brother, Jason? Riverdale may look like a quiet, sleepy town, but there are dangers in the shadows... Based on the characters from Archie Comics, RIVERDALE is from Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios, in association with Berlanti Productions, with executive producers Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (“Supergirl,” “Glee”), Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”), Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”) and Jon Goldwater (Archie Comics).

“IZOMBIE”

Throughout the spellbinding second season of iZOMBIE, television’s only zom-dram-rom-com, Liv Moore (Rose McIver) grows more confident in her ability to use her zombie powers to solve homicide cases. As an intrepid, zombified medical examiner, Liv eats the brains of murder victims and uses the subsequent visions she experiences to help Detective Clive Babinaux (Malcolm Goodwin) put killers behind bars. Meanwhile, Liv’s boss and confidante, Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti (Rahul Kohli), works on a means of reversing a stopgap cure that has turned into a death sentence for both Liv’s one-time fiancé Major Lillywhite (Robert Buckley), as well as her murderous enemy, brain-dealing former zombie Blaine DeBeers (David Anders). Meanwhile, the energy drink company Max Rager, headed by the unhinged Vaughn DuClark (Steven Weber), forces Major to kidnap innocent Seattle zombies in order to prevent their extermination, as well as the extermination of Major's favorite Seattle zombie, Liv. The noose tightens for Major as Clive and his FBI love interest, Dale Bozzio, become increasingly convinced that Major is the “Chaos Killer,” a nickname given to the criminal who is making Seattle’s well-to-do (and secretly undead) populace disappear without a trace. Simultaneously, Blaine’s plan to replace his old boss as Seattle’s criminal overlord derails when Ravi’s latest version of the zombie cure robs Blaine of all of his memories. A climactic and bloody season finale scatters the pieces on the iZOMBIE chess board. A new brain supplier arises from the ashes who will make Blaine’s reign as Seattle’s number-one brain dealer look almost humanitarian. Also, Vivian Stoll (Andrea Savage), CEO of Fillmore Graves Enterprises, a private military contractor, now holds the secrets to unlimited zombie powers once possessed, but not fully understood, by Max Rager. Vivian wants to make Seattle the capital city of a zombie homeland, and she plans to do it by any means necessary. She’d prefer to do it with Liv’s help, but she’ll happily do it over Liv’s mostly-dead body. Based upon characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred, and published by DC Entertainment’s Vertigo, iZOMBIE is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Spondoolie Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Rob Thomas (“Veronica Mars,” “Party Down,” “Cupid”), Diane Ruggiero-Wright (“Veronica Mars,” “The Ex List,” “That’s Life”), Danielle Stokdyk (“Veronica Mars,” “Party Down,” “Cupid”) and Dan Etheridge (“The Carrie Diaries,” “Veronica Mars,” “Party Down”).

“THE 100”

For three seasons, THE 100 have fought to survive. That fight has torn them apart, turned them against each other, and taken the lives of their closest friends. In season three, our heroes found themselves at the epicenters of both the Grounder world and the struggle for Arkadia’s soul. Despite their best efforts, all out war appeared unavoidable until a new, even more dangerous threat, one that had been quietly rising all along, exploded to the surface: ALIE, the A.I. that ended the world, offered relief from pain and eternal life in the “City of Light,” but as her ranks grew, it quickly became clear that she was building an army dedicated to controlling all sentient life on Earth. This was no longer a battle between warring factions; it was a fight for humanity itself. Now, in the wake of the epic season three finale, a hard truth lands on the shoulders of those who remain. What’s left to fight for now? Will they go quietly into the night, or will they find hope and faith in each other, as they face their darkest chapter yet? Based on the book series by Kass Morgan, THE 100 is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios with executive producers Jason Rothenberg and Leslie Morgenstein (“The Vampire Diaries”).

“REIGN”

Life changed for Mary Queen of Scots in the third season of REIGN. Her beloved husband, Francis, died, destabilizing France. Francis’ brother, a boy-king, took the throne, leaving Mary with little solace and a great need for power. As her cousin, Queen Elizabeth, fought for legitimacy against an unyielding patriarchy in England, Catherine and Mary came to a painful realization: they have their battles to fight as well, and it is better if they do so alone. Season four of REIGN finds Mary rising to the challenge, taking back her country and establishing her rule in Scotland, the land of her birth but a wild nation foreign to her, and now, once again, her home. Even as our canvas expands to welcome a new court in Scotland with new players, including Mary’s half-brother James, and the men who vie for her hand, the French Court grows as well. Catherine gave France many heirs – too many, as it turns out. We will meet more of her brood, who are amusingly and dangerously at each other’s throats. Our queens will make wise choices and knowingly brutal sacrifices; their fates, especially Mary’s and Elizabeth’s, are not only intertwined but increasingly inescapable. It is a season of impossibly high stakes, unexpected betrayals, sexual exploits, a royal wedding, a royal birth and a rising body count as three queens in three nations fight for their people, their loves, and their lives. REIGN is produced by CBS Television Studios and Whizbang Films/Take 5 Productions with executive producers Laurie McCarthy (“The Ghost Whisperer”), Frank Siracusa (“Beauty And The Beast”), John Weber (“Beauty And The Beast”), Patti Carr (“Beauty and the Beast,” “90210”) and Lara Olson (“Beauty and the Beast,” “90210”).

“THE ORIGINALS”

When the culmination of a dark prophecy threatens their immortal lives, the Mikaelson family must stand together and face their greatest challenge yet as season four of THE ORIGINALS begins. For more than a millennium, the Original vampire-werewolf hybrid Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan) and his brother Elijah (Daniel Gillies) have fought to preserve their family no matter the cost. But after centuries, their ruthless actions have spawned a legion of enemies – and in Season Three, they returned with a vengeance. While Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) remains at odds with Klaus over the custody of their child, she soon must choose to ally with the Mikaelsons when their long lost sister Freya (Riley Volkel) uncovers a prophecy foretelling the family’s ruin. With the arrival of the first vampires ever sired, the Mikaelsons begin to realize that their vampire progeny have joined together to eliminate their makers once and for all. As signs around them point to the fulfillment of this dire prophecy, Cami O’Connell (Leah Pipes) finds herself thrust into the center of the conflict, even as she continues to council Klaus to reject his paranoid and merciless ways. Ultimately, the influence of the returning sire lines will take a toll on trusted allies Marcel Gerard (Charles Michael Davis), Davina Claire, (Danielle Campbell), and Vincent Griffith (Yusuf Gatewood). With the Mikaelsons surrounded by enemies and prognostications of doom, they have no choice but to enact a brutal strategy that will turn everyone – friend, foe, and family – against them, thus fulfilling the prophecy itself and setting the course for season four. THE ORIGINALS is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with My So-Called Company, Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios. Julie Plec (“The Vampire Diaries,” “Kyle XY,” “Wasteland”), Michael Narducci (“The Vampire Diaries,” “The 4400,” “Medium”) and Leslie Morgenstein (“The Vampire Diaries,” “Gossip Girl”) are executive producers.

Default The CW Is One of the Bigger TV Success Stories of the Decade

http://www.vulture.com/2016/05/cw-is...ess-story.html

Quote:
The CW has long been a hybrid network of sorts: It’s an old-school broadcast network with the heart and soul of a niche cable channel. A few years into its existence, it struggled with those dual identities, as well as the perception that it was little more than a hastily assembled marriage of two corporate giants (Warner Bros. TV and CBS) designed to hold on to the valuable broadcast real estate each had via the ashes of the WB and UPN. It wasn’t hard to find industry insiders ready to predict its demise, particularly as ratings started taking a dive. But something funny happened on the way to the network’s funeral: The CW started making shows people cared about. And while it’d be misleading to call the network some sort of juggernaut, it’s absolutely one of the bigger TV success stories of the decade. The lineup the CW unveiled today looks to continue that momentum.

Under network president Mark Pedowitz and executive vice president Thom Sherman, the CW has now clearly established three distinct pillars of its programming: DC Comics super-shows, a.k.a. the (Greg) Berlantisphere; All the Feels millennial soaps; and Vamps, Zombies & Other Assorted Dystopias dramas. That doesn’t appear to be changing next season; the CW will simply look to strengthen each of its three big genres with newcomers. And the series most likely to succeed on that front wasn’t even developed at the CW: It’s Supergirl, which is moving over from corporate cousin CBS. Scheduling doesn’t matter as much on the CW as other networks, but in this case, the CW was wise to keep Supergirl in the same 8 p.m. Monday time slot where it’d been on CBS. Not only does that minimize disruption for the show’s existing fan base, it allows the CW to basically strip DC Comics shows Monday through Thursday at 8 p.m., making superhero shows both an anchor for the schedule and a destination for audiences. Plus, it means both of the network’s new shows get a decent-size lead-in. It’s such an obvious and brilliant play, one almost wonders whether CBS, CW, and Warner Bros. have been planning to move Supergirl from CBS to CW all along — that season one on CBS was essentially just one long advertisement for the show’s eventual move to its (much more obvious) home on CW. Supergirl will probably lose some audience in the shift to the CW, but if it can bring 75 percent of its season one audience to CW, it’ll be a big win.

Supergirl taking over Mondays at 8 means this season’s most critically acclaimed new broadcast show, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, will be moving to Fridays at 9 p.m. For audiences who’d grown to love the pairing of CXG and Jane the Virgin on Mondays, this might be a bit of a bummer. But here’s the thing: The fact that CW is giving CXG a second season at all is stunning. While its overall same-day audience wasn’t dramatically worse than Jane’s, the show got remarkably little growth via DVR replays. Shifting to Friday puts CXG in a less high-profile slot, but it also means the show will get a lead-in boost from the long-running The Vampire Diaries, as opposed to having to open up a night on its own. Plus, competition (and expectations) will be far less fierce: No Voice, no Bachelor — just very old-skewing shows on ABC, CBS, and NBC, plus untested newcomer The Exorcist on Fox. This seems to be a great way to keep a low-rated show alive, at least for another season.

Elsewhere, the CW will smartly use its superhero powers to push audiences to its two new fall series, the All the Feels soap No Tomorrow (Tuesdays at 9) and the hard-to-characterize Frequency (Wednesdays at 9). The trailers for both look intriguing, with Frequency more so, since it doesn’t fit squarely into one of the CW’s three big forms (though its themes of time travel and looming doom put it closest to being part of Other Assorted Dystopias). It’s silly to speculate so soon whether either show will work creatively or click with viewers, particularly since the CW doesn’t have the same sort of ratings requirements as a traditional network (and has proven to be very patient with shows it loves). Based on early trailers, however, the CW seems to once again have succeeded in finding shows likely to inspire passion from at least some segment of the audience. And after the way-too-many, brain-dead, paint-by-numbers projects unveiled by ABC, NBC, CBS, and Fox earlier in the week, the two CW fall shows — and mid-season soap Riverdale — all at least look like they’re worth checking out.

Still, it’s worth sounding a note of caution about where the CW stands. Much as it makes sense for NBC to keep adding Dick Wolf shows to its schedule — viewers want them! — it’s completely logical for the CW to lean into DC Comics shows. They’ve given the network buzz, ratings and, yes, an identity. But they’re now 40 percent of the network’s lineup. That’s a lot! If viewers suddenly feel like they’ve seen this all before, it’s not hard to imagine a tipping point where all the DC shows suddenly collapse. CW has smartly balanced its schedule with rom-com soaps such as Jane and CXG, but the latest, No Tomorrow, does feel a bit like it’s trying too hard to replicate parts of the formula used to make its predecessors. Thankfully, CW execs may have already realized the need to start diversifying. It’s hard to know exactly what Riverdale is without seeing a pilot, but the trailer seemed like a cross between Gossip Girl and Twin Peaks (with nary a hint of its roots in the Archie Comics universe). Hopefully, it will be the teen soap CW is sorely lacking right now.

Never paid much attention to this channel. it looks like they are turning it into a DC superhero channel, 4 out of 5 nights a different hero.
