As the Fall schedule posts come to a close, we land on the little network that hasn’t broken out (and might not), The CW. They unveiled 4 new shows, 1 reality, and the rest are scripted. In a smart and strategic move, The CW has moved freshman drama ‘Nikita’ to Fridays for season 2, filling in the void that has been left by ‘Smallville,’ which ended its run last Friday. Replacing ‘Nikita’ on the Thursday 9 PM slot is the new Kevin Williamson series ‘The Secret Circle,’ which (as I mentioned before) has been strategically placed after another Kevin Williamson series, the highly-successful series that is ‘The Vampire Diaries’. Also, the network has picked up its first medical drama, ‘Heart of Dixie,’ by ‘Chuck’ creator Josh Schwartz and ‘Gossip Girl’ executive producer Stephanie Savage. ‘Secret Circle’ was set to be the most buzzed about new series for The CW, but declined CBS pilot ‘Ringer’ took all the buzz at this morning’s presentation. Many critics live blogging it called ‘Ringer’ their favorite new drama based on the trailer shown at the upfront, and is definitely on my list to watch for next Fall. The sole new reality series is called ‘H8R’ and is a show that tries to get celebrities to convince people that hate them. Sounds dumb, but it also sounds original; we’ll see how that goes…

As always, here’s a graph of how The CW will look this fall, with the graph provided by Entertainment Weekly.
