CW gets real

The CW is doing what MyNetworkTV decided to do earlier this season to boost ratings: load up on reality.

The second season for the CW will feature three new reality shows, scheduled to debut in midseason. Beauty and the Geek will now run regularly on Tuesdays, replacing the now-disposed of Gilmore Girls.

A new drama, Gossip Girl, will take the coveted Wednesday night time slot after Top Model. Barring any last minute changes, One Tree Hill will return in midseason.

Thursday and Friday remains unchanged. Mondays are also unchanged, but with the new Aliens in America taking the place of All of Us.

Pretty much like rock radio in Chicago, The CW’s shows would be higher-rated if they measured the message boards instead.
