The CW Network has announced a few “early” pick-ups (not that early, dozens of shows have already been renewed over on the other networks). Included in the mix are guilty pleasures 90210 (the pic to the left) and Gossip Girl, the long running cult series Supernatural, the romantic undead hit The Vampire Diaries, and the CW’s top (really? WTF) series, America’s Next Top Model.
Missing from the list is the young Superman series Smallville, which after being taken from the timeslot it made successful for years and placed into the Friday sci-fi kill slot, has actually lifted the CW to its best Friday numbers in years. I hope the show continues for another year and gives Clark and the gang a proper send off. Also missing from early renewal is the CW revival of Melrose Place. I actually liked the first couple of episodes, but haven’t seen an ep in a while. The same can be said for most shows I casually watch though. I hope they give the series another season to find its barrings. The cast is likable and with some fresh stories I can see it growing into a decent show.
What do you think? Are Smallville and Melrose Place going to make the cut for next year? What other CW shows do you watch?
