THE CW NETWORK ANNOUNCES MIDSEASON SCHEDULE

New Schedule Features the Return of Reality Hits "America's Next Top Model," "Pussycat Dolls Present" and "Beauty and the Geek"

Strategic Moves for Established Series Including "Gossip Girl," "Reaper" to Provide Additional Exposure

January 7, 2008 (Burbank, CA) - The CW Network announced its new midseason schedule, featuring the return of several reality hits and giving current shows exposure on new nights and in new time periods.

The CW turns up the heat this midseason with the next installment of its reality franchise PUSSYCAT DOLLS PRESENT: GIRLICIOUS, premiering February 18 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET) as part of its new Monday line-up. The CW will have begun to shake up the night a few weeks earlier when its freshman hit GOSSIP GIRL moves to Mondays on January 28.

The CW's most popular series AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL returns for its tenth cycle on Wednesday, February 20 (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) with a new crop of aspiring models vying for the title and international supermodel Paulina Porizkova stepping in as a new judge on the panel of experts. Encores of PUSSYCAT DOLLS PRESENT: GIRLICIOUS will follow TOP MODEL on Wednesdays (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET). The strategy proved successful back in the spring when the inaugural PUSSYCAT DOLLS PRESENT averaged 8 million viewers each week.

The fifth edition of The CW's social experiment BEAUTY AND THE GEEK makes its debut on Tuesday, March 11 (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET), a perfect companion with The CW's hit drama ONE TREE HILL (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET), which premieres on January 8, as previously announced.

Other strategic moves on The CW's midseason schedule include freshman series REAPER, which will return Tuesday, January 15 (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) before moving to Thursdays on February 28 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET), where it will gain additional exposure paired with The CW's hit SMALLVILLE (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET).

Additionally, on February 10, The CW's new Sunday line-up will feature CW NOW (7:00-7:30 p.m. ET), a one-hour block of encore and original episodes of EVERYBODY HATES CHRIS (7:30-8:00 p.m. ET) and (8:00-8:30 p.m. ET), followed by ALIENS IN AMERICA (8:30-9:00 p.m. ET), GIRLFRIENDS (9:00-9:30 p.m. ET) and THE GAME (9:30-10:00 p.m. ET).
