The upcoming 2013-2014 Fall TV season saw some popular and not so popular TV renewals and cancellations from the season before. The CW network is bringing six new series and a few more in the mid-season.
Of note, I’m a bit disappointed in the new nights for Beauty and the Beast & Supernatural. These moves could spell doom for these shows.
“Hart of Dixie” (new night)
“Beauty and the Beast” (new night)
“Supernatural” (new night)
“THE TOMORROW PEOPLE”
“The Vampire Diaries”
“The Carrie Diaries” (new night)
“America’s Next Top Model”
New Show Descriptions
