The CW has ordered just two new series for its Fall 2010 lineup, while canceling freshman series Melrose Place. The schedule looks like this.
Monday has 90210 at 8:pm, followed by Gossip Girl at 9:pm.
On Tuesdays, One Tree Hill is paired with Life Unexpected — two shows that weren’t expected by most industry insiders to be renewed for another season.
Wednesday brings America’s Next Top Model at 8:pm, and new show Hellcats at 9:pm, about a cheerleading squad at a college in the South.
Thursdays have The Vampire Diaries, followed by the new action-packed series Nikita, starring Maggie Q as an assassin who goes rogue.
On Fridays, Smallville‘s final season is paired with Supernatural.
The CW remains the only broadcast network with no half-hour comedies on its schedule.
