Nighttime soap fans who love the fresh, hot, young and talented faces of the CW network got some good news today when the CW announced its fall lineup and schedule! The CW will plan to strategically roll-out its new fall season starting in early October 2012, a bit later than the other networks.  The reason we hear is to shorten the season and to play fewer reruns and keep the programming original and fresh.  There are also several shifts in the schedule.

90210 and Gossip Girl got its pick-up for another season and will air on Monday nights, while Vampire Diaries will be on Thursdays.   On-Air On-Soaps recurring podcast guest-host an Dillon Casey’s series, Nikita where he plays Agent Sean Pierce got picked-up and will air on Friday’s    Here is what the network said about Nikita!   “Season two of this sexy and suspenseful series saw dramatic upheavals in the life of rogue superspy Nikita (played by international action star Maggie Q), as she continued her crusade against Division, the agency that took her from the streets and forced her to kill for the government.  Nikita and Michael set out to correct the wrongs of Division… only to discover that Alex, Nikita’s protégé, has joined Division in order to avenge her father’s death.  When Nikita helps her achieve her vendetta, the trio is once again united, and a new, powerful team of heroes is formed. These include punk rock hacker Seymour Birkhoff, brilliant CIA analyst Ryan Fletcher, and ex-Navy SEAL Sean Pierce.  Nikita began her journey by searching for a home she never had, only to find a home she never expected:  Division itself.  The series stars Maggie Q as Nikita Mears, Shane West as Michael, Lyndsy Fonseca as Alex, Aaron Stanford as Birkhoff, Dillon Casey as Sean Pierce, Noah Bean as Ryan Fletcher, with Melinda Clarke as Amanda and Xander Berkeley as Percy.”

And another daytime favorite, Wilson Bethel’s (Ex-Y&R) series Hart of Dixie will be on Tuesday’s ,and here is what the network had to say about this show! “Rachel Bilson leads a stellar ensemble cast in this fish-out-of-water comedic drama about small-town living, big-city attitudes and complicated love triangles.  Set in the lovely town of BlueBell, Alabama, where the neighbors take care of one another, the mailman knows your name, there’s a parade every Tuesday…and people still aren’t quite used to Dr. Zoe Hart.  Hart Of Dixie — it’s where you want to be.  Rachel Bilson as Zoe Hart, Jaime King as Lemon Breeland, Wilson Bethel as Wade Kinsella, Cress Williams as Lavon Hayes, Tim Matheson as Brick Breeland and Scott Porter as George Tucker.”

So which shows from the CW line-up are you looking forward to seeing next season?  Weigh-in!

Happy that TVD will be back for season 4. Disappointed that TSC was canceled only because I’m a big Gale Harold fan. As far as the new shows go, only time will tell if anything really catches my eye.

Sad about TSC being canceled, but I am glad about TVD and HOD renewal, when I doubted they would be. Nikita and 90210 should have ended they are boring and have the same storyline each episode, not to mention low ratings. And as for GG, I like the show and am glad about the renewal, but the writing has been so poor lately. Chair and Derena need to be endgame, but I want to see Dair work things out, at least as friends, first.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
