The CW's fall schedule: 'Vampire' on Thursdays; 'Privileged' cancelled

Beautiful life The CW announced a 10-hour primetime fall schedule that included the pairing of two 1990s remakes and a vampire show that will try to take a bite out of Thursday nights.

Matching predictions, the CW’s fall lineup includes a stable Monday night with “Gossip Girl” and “One Tree Hill.”

Tuesdays have “90210” and the network’s revival of “Melrose Place,” whose original incarnation was a spinoff of "90210."

Wednesday has the network’s top-rated “America’s Next Top Model” and producer Ashton Kutcher’s model-themed drama “Beautiful Life.”

Thursdays finds the network continuing to have a paranormal pairing on the night, with “Twilight”-hopeful drama “Vampire Diaries” and then “Supernatural.”

In its presumed final season, “Smalllville” will move to Fridays at 8 p.m., with an encore of “Top Model” at 9 p.m.

The simplified schedule eliminates Sunday programming, which the network is giving back to stations.

For midseason, the CW has drama “Parental Discretion Advised” from writer/producer Liz Tigelaar.

“In just three years, The CW has become TV to talk about, with culturally current, quality programming,” said entertainment president Dawn Ostroff.

The schedule also omits comedies, with the CW having cancelled “The Game” and “Everybody Hates Chris.” Freshman soap “Privileged,” which for awhile looked like it was getting a second season, is also canceled, as is "Reaper."
