CW Releases Premiere Dates for Fall Shows

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!   Everywhere you go!!”

Can it really be time to announce premiere dates for fall shows?   I guess so.  Doesn’t it seem like we just finished discussing season finales?    Especially me since I just got to discussing many finales about 2 weeks ago!!!

I have to say, it does make me a little bit giddy.  Fourth of July weekend is next weekend which means Labor Day weekend is right around the corner which means the Fall Show Premieres are only a few weeks after that!!!   I know we are about 3 months away but do you know how fast that’s going to go?   Blink and it will be September.    Trust me!!!  Plus once the calendar flips to August, there will be more information coming out about the shows, hopefully I will get some early DVDs to let you know what looks good and what doesn’t, and we can start prognosticating on what we think our favorite shows will be bringing to us during the 2011/2012 season.

So to kick this off, let’s look at the CW premiere dates:


8pm 90210


8pm H8R (NEW SHOW)
9pm American’s Next Top Model


8pm The Vampire Diaries


8pm Nikita
9pm Supernatural


8pm Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl is premiering much later than normal.  Usually GG is one of the first premieres of the season.  No news on One Tree Hill yet.  Since this is its final season and it looks to be an abbreviated season, it’s probably not going to premiere until mid-season.

Mark your calendars CW fans.   What shows are you most anxious for their return?   Which new shows are you most looking forward to checking out?

Showtime Sets Some Premiere and Return Dates

“Nurse Jackie” and the “United States of Tara” are set to return on March 28th while Showtime’s new show, The Borgias, is set to premiere on April 3rd.

Can’t wait for The Borgias and check out my earlier post for a premiere clip!

I don’t watch the US of Tara starring the awesome Toni Colette.   But for the fans of the show, I’m sure you’ve been anxiously awaiting its return.  As for Nurse Jackie….ugh.  I think that show is dreadful.  I hate the lead character, I hate her sleazy boy toy, I can’t stand the annoying nurse, and her daughters grate on my nerves.   Her husband and best friend were alright.   But the best person on the show was her gay best friend and from what I understand, he’s gone.  I stopped watching after season 1.  I just have no empathy for Jackie and think she is a horrible human being.  And it pisses me off that she won an Emmy in the category of comedy series.  COMEDY?  Are they serious?   Have that ever watched that show?   That’s like pegging Dexter as a comedy.   There may be some witty humor, but it’s not a comedy.  Even the brilliant Edie Falco, who I hate in this show, said she had no business being in this category because he show is not a comedy.  Well, if you like Nurse Jackie, it’s coming back for season 3.

Mid Season Premiere Dates!

It’s hard to believe that we are mid way through the 2010-2011 TV season but we are!  There are lots of shows premiering in Jan-Mar 2011 (probably because the shows in 2010 weren’t so great.)  There is also A LOT of moving shows to new days and times since there is a lot of burn off that needs to happen with shows.  It can be very confusing so I am going to break it down as best I can.

Below are all the premiere dates of new shows starting in Jan.  Some shows are returning from hiatus (like Pretty Little Liars, Survivor, and American Idol) and some are brand new shows (like The Cape, Harry’s Law, and Mr Sunshine) and the new shows are highlighted for you.  So check these out and the daily grids should be coming soon!

NBC Mid-Season Scheduling

Lots of changes coming to NBC’s mid-season schedule.   3 new scripted shows (2 dramas and 1 comedy) are heading to the lineup and some shows are being moved to different time slots.   Here is how it shakes out as of today:  (new shows are in CAPS)


  • 8-9pm Chuck
  • 9-10pm THE CAPE* (1/17)
  • 10-11pm HARRY’S LAW (1/17)
  • The Event Returns February 28th with a 2 hr episode 9-11pm and it’s regular 1 hr slot (9-10pm) on March 7th
  • Parenthood moves to Mondays starting March 7th 10-11pm


  • 8-10pm The Biggest Loser: Couples (1/4)
  • 10-11pm Parenthood (1/4 for 4 episodes)
  • Law & Order: LA moves to Tuesdays starting February 8th 10-11pm


  • 8-9pm Minute to Win It (1/5)
  • 9-10pm Chase (1/12) Moves here from Mondays
  • 10-11pm Law & Order: SVU (1/5)
  • America’s Next Great Restaurant begins March 16th in Chase’s 9-10pm slot


  • 8-8:30pm Community (1/20)
  • 8:30-9pm PERFECT COUPLES (1/20)
  • 9-9:30pm The Office (1/20)
  • 9:30-10pm Parks & Recreation (1/20)
  • 10-10:30pm 30 Rock (1/20)
  • 10:30-11pm Outsourced (1/20)


  • 8-9pm Who Do You Think You Are (1/21)
  • 9-11pm Dateline NBC (1/7)


  • 7-8pm Dateline NBC
  • 8-9pm The Marriage Ref (3/6)
  • 9-11pm Celebrity Apprentice (3/6)

* THE CAPE has a 2 hour premier on Sunday January 9th from 9-11pm.  It will then move to its regular scheduled time slot of 9pm Mondays starting January 17th.


I think The Cape is the most engrossing of the new mid-season shows.    There really isn’t anything else like it on TV and I love shows like that.   But that usually means that it won’t do well since it isn’t a 24th Law & Order or 15th CSI spinoff.   But I hope unlike great unique, well written shows before (Reunion and Eli Stone come to mind) that it has a chance to stay and generate an audience.

I love the cast of Harry’s Law and I am a sucker for a good lawyer show.  And as long as it doesn’t get too weird and wacky (like Boston Legal…ugh) I think I could really like Harry’s Law.

Perfect Couples I really don’t know much about.  I will give it a few episodes and see how it does.

What do you think of this moving shows around the schedule?  I’m ok with it (especially if it benefits I show I like and kills a show I don’t…ha) but switch it and stay with it.  It’s hard to generate viewers if they can never find it on the schedule.  I really think that was the downfall of Samantha Who?  It was on for 6 weeks, then pulled off the air for 6 weeks.   Then it was back on at a different date and time, then it was off again.  Then it was back on at ANOTHER date and time, and then it was off permanently.  You can’t do that to a show and expect to get loyal viewers.  And if you don’t care, then just pull the show and be done with it.   But to mess with the cast and crew of these shows like that is awful.   I wonder if moving Parenthood, Chase, and L&O: LA is good or bad for these shows.  The only move I know to be a death sentence is the dreaded moving to Friday nights.  I guess time will tell.

What new show on NBC are you most looking forward to?   Or do you not care for any of them?
