CW backing out of Sundays, wants to pretend it never happened

by Jason Hughes, posted May 5th 2009 12:07PM
Easy MoneyIt was a grand idea, farming out their Sunday programming to Media Rights Capital, which immediately destroyed the night by putting on Easy Money and Valentine. So as a way of saying they're sorry, The CW is abandoning Sunday night altogether, giving them to the the local affiliates to do with as they wish. After the MRC debacle failed, they've been running movies no one has ever heard of.

This move will allow the affiliates to run ShamWow infomercials, which are almost guaranteed to get more viewers than Easy Money and Valentine had. Or they now have a great competitive slot to put Legend of the Seeker. Maybe we'll even get some more quality syndicated dramas that local affiliates can give a prime-time berth to. How about a cage fight between ShamWow pitchman Vince Schlomi and the godfather of product pimping Billy Mays? In my area it will mean my affiliate can play baseball games on Sundays rather than during the week, bumping my CW programming to Saturdays. I can't wait that long for my Reaper fix!

CW's Sunday shows to go on hiatus

by Brad Trechak, posted Oct 14th 2008 10:23AM
The CWTwo new shows on The CW have experienced such a drop in ratings that two of the series, Easy Money and Valentine, have been shut down on a 4 to 6 week hiatus while the creators work on scripts. Fortunately for The CW these shows are on their "rented out" space on Sundays. This is unfortunate for MRC, the company that actually runs those shows.

CW announces an early Fall premiere schedule

by Kona Gallagher, posted Jul 19th 2008 8:35PM
When you're a ratings-challenged fledgling network like the CW, you're going to do anything you can to get a leg up on the competition. Releasing sex-filled advertisements for your most high-profile show is a good start, but that alone won't get the job done. To that end, the CW has just announced that it's moving its fall premiere dates up to September 1st, well ahead of the beginning of the traditional broadcast season.

The idea behind the move is that you're already going to be hooked on Gossip Girl and Top Model by the time the other networks get around to premiering their fall shows, sometime around mid-to-late September. The season isn't the only thing the CW is starting early, however. Starting in November, they're also extending prime time, with original programming beginning at 6:30 on Sunday nights.

Check out CW's full premiere schedule after the jump.

Here's the CW's new Sunday night lineup

by Bob Sassone, posted May 27th 2008 2:42PM

The CW logoBrad told you a couple of weeks ago about the new shows on The CW this fall. The network put aside Sunday nights in order to have Media Rights Capital program the night as it pleased, as an experiment. Now, the lineup that MRC has come up with has been released. The network has put all four shows into production immediately (no pilots) so they'll be ready for fall. The shows will run from 7pm to 10pm. Note: sorry Moonlight fans, your show didn't make it.
