Is This The CW’s New 2011-2012 Schedule?

Clarissa May 17, 2011 12

Rumored CW 2011-2012 ScheduleToday all of the pick-ups, cancellations and renewals for The CW were made public. It had previously been announced that five shows – 90210, Gossip Girl, America’s Next Top Model, Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries – had been given early renewals.

Today it was announced that Nikita had been renewed for a second season by the network, while One Tree Hill had been renewed for 13 episodes for a ninth season. Freshman show Hellcats had been been canceled. Meanwhile, The CW has also picked up three new pilots: The Ringer (with Sarah Michell Gellar), The Secret Circle (from Vampire Diaries producer Kevin William, starring Britt Robertson) and Hart of Dixie (from Gossip Girl producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savages, starring Rachel Bilson).

Now THR is reporting about a potential 2011-2012 CW primetime schedule that’s apparently “making the rounds at the agencies Tuesday”. We, and THR, are quick to point out that this is most certainly NOT the confirmed CW fall schedule. That likely won’t be released until Thursday. But until then, you can take a look at this potential schedule.

What do you think of this potential CW schedule? Does it make sense? I actually kind of thought that Nikita and The Ringer would make more sense being paired together. In any event, this is just a rumor and not yet confirmed.

8:00 p.m. Gossip Girl (new time slot)
9:00 p.m. Hart of Dixie (new show)

8:00 p.m. 90210 (new day)
9:00 p.m. The Ringer (new show)

8:00 p.m. America’s Next Top Model
9:00 p.m. A new CW reality show (new show)

8:00 p.m. The Vampire Diaries
9:00 p.m. The Secret Circle (new show)

8:00 p.m. Nikita (new day and time)
9:00 p.m. Supernatural

One Tree Hill would be held until mid-season if this schedule is correct.

    Disagree w/ the thursday pairing … two kev williams shows together ? Plus TVD and Nikita made a really nice pairing this year , please keep it that way : )

  • deborah

    Where's the awesome sounding "Heavenly"?  That was REALLY the new show that interested me.  I don't give a flip about the others.  Also, "Nikita" and "Supernatural"?  Are they kidding?!  Why team up a dull show, which has no supernatural elements (no pun intended) like "Nikita," with the best supernatural show on television, "Supernatural"?!  Are they TRYING to destroy the ratings that night?! What should be teamed with "Supernatural" is "Heavenly."

    How dare they even think about putting 90210 on Tuesday Nights at 8. Hello, GLEE has the most viewers on that night. CW needs to step there game up.

    Mais question is: WHY ISNT SUPERNATURAL LEADING THE TIMESLOT? It is running longer, with a steady fanbase and all. Don't tell me Nikita's ratings are better – they are only better because they were following TVD.

    I have no problem with this pairing and I actually enjoy Nikita, but SPN should be leading the timeslot, with the show that almost didn't get renewed following.

    I really wish they would put the vampire diaries and supernatural together

    • Melody

      I thought they did well together last year.

  • MJ

    Don't think SPN and TVD will happen, because that "Secret Circle" show is from the same author of the TVD books, right?

    But I would love to see SPN *any day* that is not friday. I do try to have a life once in awhile.


    • Melody

      I completely agree.  If it ends up on Friday's, I will still watch, but I'd much prefer Supernatural to move to another night.

  • Dora

    I have an opinion; you don't have to agree with me, but don't start anything just because you didn't like some of the things I had to say. And I'm not a mean person, I just have an opinion, that's all. =]

    Anyways, I'm not the type to complain about anything, but I am not happy with the Friday time slot. I mean, come on, are they joking?! Supernatural, the best show on the CW, with a crap show like Nikita (sorry Nikita fans)??? At best, Supernatural needs to be with a show of the same genre as of horror or sci-fi like with Smallville, the 2nd best show on this network. Like, even though I hate The Vampire Diaries (sorry, but I think TVD is crap, and I've watched the entire 1st season and I was bored out of my mind), I'd rather Supernatural be with them than Nikita; I hate Nikita even more. Or they can be with another supernatural show the network picked up.

    While on the time slot subject, the CW really needs to put my favorite show, Supernatural, back in their rightfully owned time slot; Thursdays at 9! We've been there for years; they shouldn't have been moved in the first place! And I miss having my show on Thursdays at 9 because that was Supernatural's night, not Fridays. In all honesty though, wherever Supernatural moves to, I'm still going to watch it no matter what because I never miss my show for anything, even if they continue to keep them on Fridays, I'm not/never have/never will miss my show. But I really think it's time for the network to move them back where they belong. And especially since Smallville's no long (but always be) Supernatural's big brother, they need to move my show back to Thursdays. And right now, since Smallville is gone (you will be missed), the only good show on this network is just Supernatural. I might check out the other new horror shows, see if they're worth my time. If not then I guess Supernatural will be the only show I'll be watching on the CW; they're the only show that matters, anyways. I don't watch anything else.

  • J-Star

    I also once loved Supernatural, but now I think the show is getting more and more boring. I'm done with it!.

  • Camalie

    Thursdays would be great, double awesome shows in one night. OMG! I can't wait.

  • Harley

    Does Vampire Diaries get a full season 3?
