The CW Fall 2016-17 Schedule Announced

Supergirl is keeping her Monday home.

The CW is the final broadcast network to unveil its 2016-17 schedule, and the ex-CBS drama will retain its Monday-at-8 pm timeslot, where it will lead into Jane the Virgin.

Also of note: The network is plugging in new series No Tomorrow and Frequency after its two biggest hits, The Flash and Arrow, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, respectively; Supernatural is shifting to Thursdays following Legends of Tomorrow; and The Originals is being held until midseason.

Also on tap for midseason: Returning series iZombie, The 100 and Reign, as well as new entry Riverdale.

All told, the The CW’s fall schedule looks like this; new shows are in CAPS, click for details. (And for handy reference, here are ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC‘s fall lineups.)

MONDAY
8 pm Supergirl
9 pm Jane the Virgin

TUESDAY
8 pm The Flash
9 pm NO TOMORROW

WEDNESDAY
8 pm Arrow
9 pm FREQUENCY

THURSDAY
8 pm Legends of Tomorrow
9 pm Supernatural (new timeslot)

FRIDAY
8 pm The Vampire Diaries
9 pm Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

NOT RETURNING NEXT SEASON: America’s Next Top Model, Containment and Significant Mother

Re: The CW Fall 2016-17 Schedule Announced

Now that Supergirl has moved to The CW, the network is gearing up for an epic four-way crossover with Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

Ahead of its upfront presentation on Thursday, CW chief Mark Pedowitz touted Supergirl’s move from CBS to The CW. “Just imagine what our superhero crossover episode is going to look like come December,” he told reporters, later following up by calling the event “our biggest one ever.”

The news is unsurprising. It’s become an annual tradition for Greg Berlanti’s super series to cross over in the fall. It started when Arrow first introduced Grant Gustin as Barry Allen in season 2 of Arrow, following up the next season with a crossover between Arrow and The Flash. The two shows then crossed over with DC’s Legends of Tomorrow ahead of its launch, while The Flash also crossed over with Supergirl on CBS.

Re: The CW Fall 2016-17 Schedule Announced

I'll be watching Supergirl, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow. I'm bummed that Riverdale won't be premiering until midseason. It is the only pilot this season that I was excited to see and now I have to wait even longer... I'll also be watching iZombie and The 100 when they return in 2017.

Re: The CW Fall 2016-17 Schedule Announced

While I'll miss it in the fall, keeping the episode count down on IZombie is probably a good thing creatively. Flash and Arrow could probably benefit from that too, but they are too (CW) popular to not get full season orders.

Just The Flash for me. I've abandoned Arrow & Legends of Tomorrow and don't mind watching Supernatural a year behind on blu-ray. I'm looking forward to Riverdale though.

Re: The CW Fall 2016-17 Schedule Announced

Looking forward to the massive 4 way crossover with Supergirl, the Flash, Arrow and Legends.

That will be insane. I'm guessing there will be some here who won't watch it because they can't keep up with all 4 shows simultaneously.

A few of these shows on The CW will have to get shorter seasons because of the huge midseason inventory. Legends, Vampire Diaries, Crazy Ex for sure.

I'll be checking out Frequency and Riverdale. I'll have to see a trailer for No Tomorrow first.

Vampire Diaries and Crazy Ex on Fridays is a weird pairing.

Re: The CW Fall 2016-17 Schedule Announced

It seems like practically everything I'm interested in, at the CW and elsewhere, is being held for mid-season. I can watch almost everything in the Fall live if I want, as there's almost no timeslot competition b for me between the 5 networks.

Flash is my favorite show on TV right now. I'll keep watching Supergirl, too. LOT kind of lost some steam with me.

The wait for iZombie is going to be eternal. However, if it keeps it on the air and not canned, so be it.

Re: The CW Fall 2016-17 Schedule Announced

The CW is literally my home now it seems for TV, aside from HBO and Starz. Grimm from NBC, Once Upon a Time from ABC (if I actually continue), The Big Bang Theory from CBS (needs to end and no guarantee I'll watch it all), and nothing from FOX. So that's 0 to 1 show per network. While The CW has Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, and then mid-season The 100 and The Originals.

I wonder if The Originals moving to mid-season means this will be a shorter season and possibly the last? I feel it's about time as Claus has pretty much ran out of newer more threatening villains to take on.

Either way, not a single NEW show from any of these networks interested me enough to try them.

Just curious, so judging by your comments over the last couple of days, you're only interested in sci-fi, fantasy and comic themed shows?

I'm dreading the four-way superhero crossover since it will likely affect all shows and some of them can barely manage running their own arcs.

Will have to watch any CW On Demand. This area still doesn't have the channel in HD (but the On Demand ones are HD).

I like more serial than procedural type shows. I wouldn't limit my taste to any specific genres, it's just nothing else currently running or announced to start next season outside of what I mentioned happened to interest me. I also had to cut down on the amount I watch due to time constraints so a lot of shows I had been watching got cut a few seasons ago, or several of them either finally ended or got canned.

This summer, the only show that I'm interested in is Teen Wolf and it hasn't even got an official premiere date yet. I read on MTV that Dylan (the guy who plays Stiles) apparently got hurt on the set of making the new Maze Runner movie so maybe that has something to do with it and it seems to infer that Teen Wolf may not premiere till Fall.

My Trackt.tv account at https://trakt.tv/users/chaoxide suggests that my favorites are:


and the last 30 days at a glance (on the dashboard) shows:

Hmm, can they use Brandon Routh to guest star on Supergirl as her cousin now?

Disappointing that they are moving Crazy Ex-Girlfriend to the Friday night graveyard. That screams to me that they are only keeping it because of the critical acclaim, but have no intention on promoting it or growing the audience.

Seven shows in the fall. A couple later. Yep, CW has a lot of shows. All other network stations are lucky to have one show and two at best.

Appears the CW sure knows what I am drawn to. (Magic, Supernatural, Time Travel, Fantasy, comic based, powers etc...)

No? Because he's Ray/Atom on Legends of Tomorrow.

I'm rewatching Smallville and I'd love to see Welling return in red & blue. The timing/age kinda works too between Kara & Clark and the time Smallville has been off the air and how long Clark would have been Superman.

It'd also be interesting to see what the Berlanti team could do with a character we all already know.

Also would be appropriate given Smallville was CW's flagship show for years.

He can't play both? The shows aren't set in the same universe anyway.

I'm hoping that the crossover somehow allows a Calista Flockhart/Jessie L. Martin reunion.

I'm assuming plans are already underway to bring the universes together now that they share a network. That'll probably be the big focus of the mega-crossover if I had to guess.

I would prefer a Mel Gibson-Danny Glover Maverick type moment between the two.
