Just call Wednesday night hero night on The CW's 2012-2013 schedule. The network has moved Friday night player "Supernatural" to Wednesdays and is pairing it with the new DC Comics series "Arrow."
Meanwhile, Tyra Banks' "America's Next Top Model" moves to Friday nights paired with "Nikita."
New medical drama "First Cut" joins "Hart of Dixie" on Tuesdays and the vampires of Mystic Falls will meet the beast on Thursdays with the programming block of "The Vampire Diaries" and "Beauty and the Beast."
"The Carrie Diaries," the "Sex and the City" prequel and one of The CW's highest profile projects, doesn't make its CW debut until midseason. When it does, Carrie Bradshaw will take over the "Gossip Girl" timeslot. The CW's other new scripted series, "Cult," is also being held for midseason.
"One of our biggest priorities this year at The CW was adding more original programming, and we've added 50 original hours to our schedule in 2012," Mark Pedowitz, president of The CW, said in a statement. "With dynamic new dramas for the fall and midseason, and our first-ever summer schedule leading into our October fall launch, this is poised to be a transformative season for The CW.
"The dramas we have for next season are outstanding, with relatable characters and breakout stars. 'Arrow,' starring Stephen Amell in the title role, is a bold, edge-of-your-seat action show, based on the popular DC Comics character; 'Emily Owens, M.D.' is funny, emotional, and we have caught lightning in a bottle with an incredible lead actor in Mamie Gummer; 'Beauty and the Beast' takes a classic love story and adds a procedural element; 'The Carrie Diaries,' with the story of a young Carrie Bradshaw set in the 1980s, is perfect for our audience; and 'Cult' is a chilling psychological thriller. We have an unbelievable variety of high quality dramas, all speaking to the 18-to-34-year old audience, set for next season."
