The CW announced its flashiest schedule yet, this morning. The biggest news is, of course, that Arrow spin-off The Flash will lead into Supernatural on Tuesday nights. Mondays are, by contrast, mixing horror and comedy with The Originals’ second season leading into Jane the Virgin’s debut. Wednesday and Thursday stand pat: Arrow and The 100 on Wednesdays, and The Vampire Diaries and The 100 on Thursdays. Friday showcases Whose Line Is It Anyway? and America’s Next Top Model.
Non-superhero DC Comics adaptation/horror series iZombie and the sci-fi/fantasy, The Messengers, are set for mid-season.
The full schedule and series descriptions follow the jump.
The more things change, the more they stay the same. With only five new shows for fall, CBS is returning twenty-one shows for the 2014-15 season. Leading the way for new shows is spin-off NCIS: New Orleans, starring Scott Bkula. The other four new fall shows are: Madam Secretary – Téa Leoni stars as a newly appointed Secretary of State who has to negotiate a balance between work and family; Scorpion – about a team of brilliant misfits ‘who comprise the last line of defense against complex, high-tech threats of the modern age’; Stalker – about ‘detectives who investigate stalking incidents – including voyeurism, cyber harassment and romantic fixation – for the Threat Assessment Unit of the LAPD,’ andThe McCarthys – a family comedy about a family whose black sheep is the black sheep not because he’s gay, but because he and his partner want to leave Boston.
CBS’ biggest acquisition might be NFL Thursday Night Football, which has caused a serious rejigging of that night’s schedule. Mid-season shows include Vince Gilligan’s Battle Creek, Matthew Perry’s The Odd Couple, and CSI: Cyber. Returning shows include: NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, The Mentalist, Elementary, Person of Interest and, in its final (you read that right!) season, Two-and-a-Half Men.

For fall of the 2014-15 season, ABC has added six new shows: Selfie, Manhattan Love Story, Forever, Black-ish, How to Get Away with Murder and Cristela – three half-hour comedies and three dramas/dramedies. Waiting in the wings for mid-season are: American Crime, Fresh Off the Boat, Galavant, Marvel’s Agent Carter, Secrets and Lies and The Whispers – three dramas, a musical dramedy and two half-hour comedies. Marvel’s Agent Carter and Galavant will serve as bridge series between fall and spring runs of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD and Once Upon a Time, respectively.
Some notable shifts among returning shows: Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal each move up an hour on Thursdays with How to Get Away with Murder sliding into the 10 pm slot; SHIELD moves back an hour, with Selfie and Manhattan Love Story taking over its former timeslot.
