Top Model Moves to 9:00 Starting April 20th

America’s Next Top Model will be moved from its longtime Wednesday at 8:00 timeslot starting April 20th. Where will it go, you ask? To 9:00 on the same night with repeats of the previous week’s episode playing at 8:00.

I’m alright with this move. Having the previous week’s show as a lead in may boost ratings a little bit (seriously, how often have you started watching Top Model reruns and then before you know it, you’ve watched an entire season?) and the CW doesn’t have a tremendous amount of programming options once Shedding for the Wedding finishes next month. It’s tougher competition for Top Model (they’ll now be facing Modern Family, Cougar Town, and the last hour of Idol, among others), but it’s still one of the CW’s top programs and I think it’ll be able to survive. Here’s the press release:

“America’s Next Top Model” Slides to 9:00PM on Wednesdays, Starting April 20
