Summer has barely even started, but everyone is still itching for the next round of fall TV to kick back up. Sure, we'll have Comic-Con 2012 to hold us over for a bit, but when will our favorite TV shows from The CW premiere? We need some 'Supernatural,' already! The network has your answer, but you're not going to like how far it's all been pushed back...
And with that, it seems The CW has just about settled its lineup for the fall season. There were some clutch renewals and intriguing pilots picked up for sure, but now all of the major series have been accounted for. So where 'Gossip Girl' and 'Hart of Dixie' will live to fight another day, poor Sarah Michelle Gellar's 'Ringer' sadly won't live up to 'Buffy's seven-season legacy, and the truth is out about 'The Secret Circle.'
Yesterday was a good day for many of The CW's fans, given full season renewals for the network's bigger hits like 'Supernatural,' 'The Vampire Diaries,' and even the '90210' reboot, or adaptation, or whatever we're calling it. Apart from those three however, what of the network's other on-the-bubble series? Who's most likely dead in the water, and who's still got a fighting chance?
The future of NBC's current star-maker 'Smash' hadn't been in doubt, given the solid ratings and buzz for the musical series, and even the departure of show-runner Theresa Rebeck the very day its season 2 renewal was announced didn't pull any plugs. So with Rebeck out, who's been tapped to headline the 'Smash'ing attempt to chronicle development on a Marilyn Monroe musical?
