The CW launched a new reality hit "Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll," which averaged 8 million viewers each week between the show's original and encore telecast. The next edition of "Pussycat Dolls Present" will make its debut next midseason.

"Friday Night Smackdown" led The CW to first on Friday night in key male demographics. "Smackdown" will remain on Friday nights next season.

"One Tree Hill" improved over last season by double-digit gains among adults 18-34 (19%) and women 18-34 (22%). "One Tree Hill" will return next midseason.

The third edition of "Beauty and The Geek" marked the highest-rated cycle of the series in women 18-34 and women 18-49. "Beauty and The Geek" will return next season to anchor The CW's Tuesday at 8:00p.m. in the fall, as the lead in to the network's new drama "Reaper."
