TV News – 6/1/09

Hi everyone! I thought I’d do a few posts this week catching all of you up on the outcome of the up fronts and give you a chance to read about a few new hows starting this fall. For this post let’s concentrate on the CW and ABC.

The CW has announced its new fall line-up. A lot of fans are going to be sad with the news that Reaper and Privileged have both been axed. Along with the announcement of these cancellations comes the news of four new shows for fall. These shows are: Melrose Place, The Beautiful Life, The Vampire Diaries, and Parental Discretion Advised. Hopefully, these shows are successful for CW during the week because it’s got nothing on the weekend to help it out. The new Melrose Place might be entertaining in an addictive, need to see drama way. I will also admit to being mildly curious about The Vampire Diaries, after all what girl doesn’t have a slight vampire fantasy these days.

Fans are worried with the decision ABC made to move Ugly Betty to Friday nights in the fall. Will this be the end of our beloved, Betty? Network insists it won’t be, I’m not sure. Check it out here: Ausiello

ABC has caused many fans to shed some tears for the loss of their favourites, Pushing Daisies and Samantha Who?. Joining those two great shows in the land of reruns are: Cupid, Dirty Sexy Money, In the Motherhood, The Unusuals, and Eli Stone. I can’t say I’m surprised that the network didn’t feel the love of Cupid, but I am disappointed that The Unusuals didn’t get a solid chance to build a fan base. Along with the announcement of the demise of these shows ABC has announced 11 new shows. Some are dramas, some comedy and at least one reality type show. Eastwick looks promising, I loved the novel and the original movie so hopefully the show lives up to the standards they set. I am also excited for The Deep End, it’s being compared to Grey’s Anatomy but with lawyers. It also boasts a stellar cast including, Tina Majorino (Veronica Mars) and Billy Zane (Titanic).
