the cw The CW Fall 2009 TV Premiere Dates & Times

The CW Announced their 2009 Fall Schedule and it’s actually pretty thin as far as shows go compared to other networks.  But they do have a few shows we do want to see:  Smallville and Supernatural.

The CW doesn’t exactly fall into the category of power television with the likes of America’s Next Top Model or 90210 and such fare, but they do have a couple of shows that Screen Rant readers appreciate. Yet I’m sure you’d like to know what they have in store for their viewing audiences for the upcoming 2009 Fall season.

Not being able to leave well enough alone after 90210, The CW is rebooting and premiering Melrose Place.

For Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill fans, be alert.  They’ve swapped time slots.

Vampire Diaries is a new show starting up and is the lead-in to Supernatural.  I’m going to have another article on Vampire Diaries coming up pretty soon, so stay tuned for that.

Smallville starts its slow ratings death when it starts up on Friday’s.  (Do. Not. Get. Me. Started.)

There’s a show not on the schedule that will start at a later date called Life UneXpected.

2009 Fall Schedule

Tuesday, Sept. 8
8 pm: 90210
9 pm: Melrose Place (new series)

Wednesday, Sept. 9
8 pm: America’s Next Top Model (two-hour premiere)

Thursday, Sept. 10
8 pm: The Vampire Diaries (new series)
9 pm: Supernatural

Monday, Sept. 14
8 pm: One Tree Hill
9 pm: Gossip Girl

Wednesday, Sept. 16
9 pm: The Beautiful Life (new series)

Friday, Sept. 25
8 pm: Smallville
9 pm: Top Model “encores”

From the 8th to the 25th, Fridays will be used to replay Melrose Place, Vampire Diaries and The Beautiful Life.  That seems to say a lot for the slot.  And then they’ll air Smallville in this same slot starting the 25th.

The way The CW is treating Smallville, I guess those contract negotiations with Welling may have only been for one additional year and if I didn’t know any better, I’d say they aren’t expecting it to go beyond next season.

Be sure to set your DVR’s accordingly.  I am looking forward to Supernatural and I’m going to give Vampire Diaries a chance.  Not sure how much of one, but I will.  I swear, if they start this show and try to pack each character’s history into the first 5 minutes of their appearance, I’m jumping ship!  To me that is a sign of insecure plot development.

  1. don’t jump! Maybe the show will be watchable! ;D

  2. Still not happy with no Reaper. Will never watch this crap lineup.

  3. Stupid vampires! They’re taking over television. How dare they move smallville for this crap. I give it like 10 episodes before… no wait… it will be crap from the first episode

  4. Now now…Smallville has had a good run…let’s all think positive, people!

  5. I am trying to think positive, but vampires? Really? TV’s creativity meter just dropped into the negatives.

  6. Someone commented that Tv dropped its creativity meter by screening a vampire show.

    Hello- Smallville. SUPERMAN! How many television shows, movies, comics etc have been produced.

    Give the show a chance, before you even start critising the show.

  7. I’m not saying the creativity was very high to begin with. Just saying it dropped even lower

  8. “Smallville. SUPERMAN!” Smallville is about his life BEFORE he was superman, that’s a fairly creative idea

  9. I totally agree with Steve about Reaper. Why oh why do they keep torturing us with this show? They make it so good and then leave us hanging big time and trick us by saying it’s not coming back and then let it return like in February and then let it run for 3 months and then, POOF! It disappears into the ether. WTH?! Well, at least I still have my Supernatural and Smallville. Which, by the way, I was surprised Smallville is coming back for season 9. I thought they were going to finish at 8.

  10. no “Privileged” , boooo hooo, I loved that show and was REALLY looking forward to watching it again this fall!!!

  11. The series The Game, I was hoping to you contiued the show Ilike it.Will it be back as a mid replacement season.

  12. What was the name of the movie on early Sunday afternoon on the CW network?

  13. I am really disappointed in the cw you took off girlfriends fothat really stupid show Reaper & now The Game & Chris, now ure gonna start a vampire ????? What kind of Drugs are you doing over there???? They really need to make you guys PISS IN THE CUP!!!!!! It’s either that or Racial. I’ll let you Decided. My vote is BOTH.
