The CW announces when its shows will return
The "big" return week will begin on April 21, with the return of Gossip Girl, Reaper and Supernatural. The interesting part of this announcement is that the network was beginning to air new episodes of some of their shows; the eps were shot before the strike and it looked like the network wasn't going to hold them back and air them after the walkout was over. Now, it looks like they are. So, those of you who were starting to get used to the idea of new Smallville and Supernatural episodes, for instance, are going to have to watch some more reruns for a while.
By the way, if you're wondering where the network's longest-running show, Girlfriends, is on this list, the network decided to cancel it.
