the CW, My New Favorite Channel?

Breaking News. UPN and WB will be replaced by a new channel called the CW this fall. More articles below:

Veronica Mars, Gilmore Girls, Smallville, and Everybody Hates Chris all on one channel? This may become my most frequently DVRed channel this fall. Thoughts?

I'm with you-- and America's Next Top Model, too?? My question is: What will go? Are they gonna get rid of the old kind of UPN programming? I.e. Girlfriends, etc? Won't some people get pissed about that? I've also started watching Related lately and I must say, I really like it. It's totally girly and cheesy, but in a great way. It reminds me a lot of my other favorite cheesy girl show BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE on ABC Family. You should all watch both if you get a chance.

I think it's a good thing that they're merging, however, I hope they don't cancel UPN programs such as Everybody Hates Chris or VM. I can't imagine them keeping all the programs. There are a lot.

Thanks a lot for listing the songs and putting them up!

My first reaction was - what a sucky new corporate name. I agreed with adfreak's commentary.

It's great "synergy" though and UPN lucked out, eh.

Yeah, I agree, "The CW" just doesn't roll off the tongue..."The WC" sounds better, but British folks would find it disgusting...
SO far, the announced line up includes VM, Everybody Hates Chris, Gilmore Girls, Girlfriends...not included yet are some of the smaller UPN sitcoms and WB shows like Everwood, Charmed, What I like About You and One Tree Hill-- I would be sad to see these WB shows go, although maybe I'm the only one...The other thing is now there is one less channel for us folks hoping for jobs in writing/development to work at...sucks to be someone with a show in development at one of those networks right now...

Brought to you by The Water Closet. It needs to be like the standard three letter acronym. Perhaps something like the WBN or WBU. Or UWN (United Warner Network?). Attach a cool mnemonic device and then we'd get "awareness" and it would "resonate" ...

All my favorite shows will survive the merger. I haven't really gotten into any of the teen-angst (or witchy) drama. I prefer a little drama-edy in my television addictions.

I'm signed up for the NATPE version, but it's always fun to see what's happening in other industries.

WBU might be good because it could also stand for the White Black Network (stereotypically seeing the WB as what white teens watch and UPN as what black teens watch...) although wouldn't it be fun if it were called WUBU? With Us, By Us? Watch Us, Bastards, Uh-huh?
