The CW Midseason Schedule: ‘Hart of Dixie’ to Friday, ‘Tomorrow People’ to Monday
The CW has announced its midseason schedule, and the network is looking to plug the weak spots in its schedule, from a ratings perspective. Of course, some of the choices don’t make a whole lot of sense, particularly moving The Tomorrow People to Mondays, where it will air after the new series Star-Crossed. Normally, the strategy is to use a successful show as a lead-in for a newcomer, not to pair two new shows with one another and hope for the best.
Here’s the midseason schedule, with CAPS indicating new series:
Monday, February 17
8:00 p.m. “STAR-CROSSED” (series premiere)
9:00 p.m. “Beauty and the Beast”
Monday, March 17
8:00 p.m. “STAR-CROSSED”
9:00 p.m. “The Tomorrow People” (new night)
Wednesday, March 19
8:00 p.m. “Arrow”
9:00 p.m. “THE 100? (series premiere)
Friday, March 21
8:00 p.m. “Whose Line is it Anyway?” (season premiere)
8:30 p.m. “Whose Line is it Anyway?”
9:00 p.m. “Hart of Dixie” (new night)
So yeah…about this schedule. This is profoundly troubling for Beasties, as The Tomorrow People will be replacing Beauty and the Beast in the Monday 9pm timeslot starting March 10, with any remaining, unaired new episodes of Beauty and the Beast airing over the summer (according to USA Today). In effect, the network is burning off the remaining episodes simply to get use out of the set of episodes they’ve already paid for. And that’s a damn shame. (Seriously, I love that show)
It’s also looking like it’s curtains for The Carrie Diaries too. Well, unless these new shows fail. The 100, a post-apocalyptic adventure series, is expected to do well, although the jury is still out on Star-Crossed (which you can check out a trailer for below). I suppose we’ll see come midseason.
So what do you think of the new midseason schedule? Sound off in the comments!
Got Something to Add?
All the networks care about is money! This is the world we live in! So many fans around the globe are feeling shocked at CW's decision to 'move away' batb millions love the show so much! and so many votes have been cast for this beautiful show at PCA!
To hell with Nielsons ratings! I feel so let down by CW!
BATB is the best CW show. We watched all around the world. This is so unfair... From Argentina, we're still roaring!
OK so am confused... BATB is cancelled after this season?
they moved The Tomorrow People cause they assume it got high enough ratings and can stand alone while using its old spot for new series the 100 to feed off Arrow??
THIS IS INSANE.. gone will be AmellWednesdays!! why promote it so ..and make us so invested... sigh
@Angela_MG You'll see!
@maggs_81 hahahahha nicely done!
@aquayers HAHAHHA.. u literally made me laughed so loud!
When they 1st advertised it, it looked fantastic.. but this trailer made it look so cheesy... i still would watch to see if it's better tho..
@AndreaFernandez agreed! Hiya fellow South American.... im from Guyana!
@Shereeda22 Moving The Tomorrow People to Monday is actually NOT a vote of confidence. :(
@tristatescw Is BatB cancel?
@TheBelgianGirl i knw ..well we can still hope BATB will be renewed!
Saw premiere of Star-Crossed last night.. and it was surprisingly not bad... from the cheesy trailers/promos ud think it'd be lackluster.. but it wasnt! Im pleasantly surprised...
Also, it didnt hurt that Grey Damon was in the show (I didnt know he was in it!)
@Angela_MG No, it will be on Mondays at 9pm! Check out our other tweet for the midseason schedule.
@tristatescw Ok, thanks!
