Finally, the WB Fall Line Up

Oh Yay! Oh yay! Here's what I got from the Futon Critic:

ON “NEW TUESDAY, ” THE SUPERB “GILMORE GIRLS” RETURNS FOLLOWING ITS MOST ACCLAIMED SEASON EVER, PAIRED WITH CHILLING NEW DRAMA “SUPERNATURAL, ” STARRING JARED PADALECKI AND JENSEN ACKLES, FROM McG AND EMMY-WINNING DIRECTOR DAVID NUTTER

SOPHOMORE SENSATION “ONE TREE HILL” MOVES TO WEDNESDAYS AT 8:00, FOLLOWED BY FOUR ADULT SISTERS NAVIGATING CAREER, ROMANCE AND LIFE IN “RELATED, ” FROM MARTA KAUFFMAN, THE EMMY AWARD-WINNING PRODUCER OF “FRIENDS"

A RETURN TO QUALITY DRAMAS ON THURSDAY WITH “SMALLVILLE” LEADING OFF THE NIGHT, WHILE THE ACCLAIMED “EVERWOOD” MOVES TO THURSDAYS AT 9:00 FOR ITS FOURTH SEASON

Wow, how am I going to navigate this?

I am glad that GG has finally been given a go for next season... Not that I was nervous that it wasn't going to get renewed but WB surely took their time to let us know it was coming back. I want to check out Supernatural but it's going up against Veronica Mars. Love ya Jared but Jason is my cabana boy and I have his back when it comes to TV.

This means that VM actually has a potential of being a full-time ratings contender. For WB to move OTH to Wednesdays and show reruns on Sundays shows that OTH really isn't that strong of a show. Despite its full order of 26 (and not the usual 21 eps per season), I don't think its script is strong enough to have people lost to VM return to watch the show.

Sadly, this still means that Tristin's return to GG would not happen any time soon.

Everwood moving to Thursdays is strange. Since the untimely demise of Tru Calling 2 seasons ago, I guess Everwood would be a good contender against The OC. I gave up on it when I had to juggle my VCR schedule but for now I'm currently intrigued with whiny Ephram and what he's going to do now that he knows that his ex-gf's mom has cancer and that his former babysitter is carrying his baby. I know, too angst ridden but how could you hate a character who should be beaten up constantly just because his name is Ephram?

I don't know what's up for Fridays except Reba. They took out What I Like About You and moved that to Sundays (I wish they would have more of the Jenny Garth/Luke Perry action next season. Too cute!). Joan of Arcadia is glaringly absent from the Friday lineup at CBS.

I don't know about y'all but I'd be studying next season's line up if you're like me depending on a tape rather than a TiVo or DVR.

26?

26?

Are they kidding? I mean, I love CMM, but come on. Who is watching it? They obviously know that, since they moved it. I mean, I can see why GG fans aren't staying to watch, it's a soap-operay type show, so not written as well as GG, even though they have our Chad hostage.
I've been on again off again with Everwood, but the new story line has got me. I like Dr. Jake, too, from my old Party of Five days. I want Nina and Andy to buy a clue, which they finally seem to be doing? Who knows. Ephram I like, but he and Amy, I'm not so sure about.

I'll definitely be watching VM next season, no matter when it's on. You guys got me hooked, in three episodes or less.

Okay, work. I'm going to work now.

I am so annoyed that they cancelled JoA. I used to watch it all the time with my Grandpa, but I stopped after he passed away. I was going to start watching again, and now it's cancelled! (Do you think it was my fault?)

I am glad that GG is coming back, hopefully one of the midseason replacements will be for OTH, and then our Chad can come back to GG. (Although with the smoking and the strippers, he's kind of losing his hotness factor. Quickly. I'm not losing the love for Tristan, as he and CMM are two different people, one real and one not. Just Chad.)

Now that VM is moving to wed, I might have to check out that new show with Jared and Jensen. I loved JA when he was on DOOL, as Eric Brady, and I have missed him so much. I hope the show is good, because I didn't really have any interest in DC when he was on it, so I didn't watch him. Plus, by then, I was watching WW and L&O with my Dad on wednesdays, and had no use for DC. (Don't kill me!)
