WWE in HD in January!

CW Network: 78 Percent Primetime In HD

The network's lineup will include wrestling in high-def.

By Swanni

Washington, D.C. (July 25, 2007) -- The CW Network says 78 percent of its primetime lineup will be in High-Definition by January 2008.

The network's new season will begin this fall, but its HD lineup will be complete when Friday Night Smackdown, the wrestling program, goes high-def in January.

The 2007-2008 lineup will include the return of Everybody Hates Chris from comedian Chris Rock who will appear in front of the camera for the first time this season as a school counselor. The comedy is broadcast in HD.

The new high-def shows include Gossip Girl, which focuses on an anonymous blogger, and Aliens in America. a comedy about a Wisconsin family who takes in a 16-year-old Muslim in an exchange program.

The CW network has struggled in the ratings since its launch in 2006 after the consolidation of networks UPN and the WB. But the 2007-2008 lineup has received strong early buzz from TV critics.

Here's the CW HDTV lineup for the 2007-2008 season:
(All times eastern)

Sunday
Girlfriend -- 5 p.m.
The Game -- 5:30 p.m.
Gossip Girl -- 6 p.m.
Life Is Wild -- 7 p.m.

Monday
Everybody Hates Chris -- 8 p.m.
Aliens in America -- 8:30 p.m.
Girlfriends -- 9 p.m.
The Game -- 9:30 p.m.

Tuesday
Reaper -- 9 p.m.

Wednesday
Gossip Girl -- 9 p.m.

Thursday
Smallville -- 8 p.m.
Supernatural -- 9 p.m.

Friday
Friday Night Smackdown -- 7 p.m. (Starting in Jan.)

I don't watch wrestling, but it's long overdue. I'll put it on once in a while if it's at least in HD.

I think WWE is in the shithole rite now & I think WWE Smackdown as always been the lesser of the two (now three with ECW) brands, It will be cool to see WWE Smackdown in HD.

I remember reading an article a while back, when WWE was considering HD, and they were afraid of how the girls would really look in HD, as well as blown spots.

I was thinking that too... may have to check that out.

So they are back to doing Sunday replays again, eh? Wish they'd have considered that for Smallville last season. I'm still playing catch up watching it every Thursday this summer to be caught up by the start of S7.
