You all know how much I hate the Best Friends/Better enemies gimmick but holly cow, the new 3 minute trailer for Arrow is stunning!
The CW today announced the broadcast television premiere of the four-hour event miniseries LABYRINTH, airing across two consecutive nights on Thursday, May 22 (8:00-10:00pm ET) and concluding Friday, May 23 (8:00-10:00pm ET). Filmedon-location in the medieval town of Carcassonne in southwest France and Cape Town, South Africa, the historical miniseries jumps back and forth between modern and medieval France as it follows the lives of two women who are separated by centuries, but united in their search for the Holy Grail.
With Arrow, Supernatural, Reign (I’ll admit it’s terrible, but I’m addicted) and The Tomorrow People (what Agents of SHIELD should have been), The CW Network has killed it this season.
I’ve always been a CW Network fangirl, but I’m really enjoying a lot of their programming this season – Arrow is having an awesome sophmore season, The Tomorrow People is everything that Marvel’s Agent of SHIELD should be, Reign is surprisingly awesome (in a weirdly bad way – I don’t believe in the concept of guilty pleasures – I never feel guilty for liking what I like, but if I did, this would be one), Nikita, and Supernatural is back on track after the mess that was last season (really the last two seasons). I also love the fact that they don’t have an itchy trigger finger like the other four Networks.
The CW announced its midseason schedule today, including the premiere of two new dramas, Star-Crossed and The 100 and the second cycle of the hit comedy/improv series Whose Line Is It Anyway? Have I said recently how much I despise these long freaking breaks? Where’s The Tomorrow People on this schedule?
Ok, I’ll admit it, I’m pretty upset. Just went to get my ticket for iHeartRadio’s JingleBall 2013 Concert at DC’s Verizon Center and ticket master will not let me get a single ticket. I mean really, now Single People aren’t allowed to go out and enjoy themselves? Nevermind, the fact that I was getting a ticket that cost freaking $300! What a crock of crap. So my money’s not good enough for these elitist assholes? Is this where attending concerts is heading? Bad enough they expect you to purchase tickets to shows 6 MONTHS in advance now single people need not apply? I’m so annoyed, I’m not even sure why I’m even bothering to post this announcement.
On paper the show sounds like it’ll be great or at the very least interesting. The star-studded concert, hosted by Clear Channel’s Z100, New York’s Hit Music Station, on December 13 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, will feature Miley Cyrus, Robin Thicke, Pitbull, Enrique Iglesias, Fall Out Boy, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Selena Gomez, Fifth Harmony, Ariana Grande, Jason Derulo and Austin Mahone, with more still to be announced. DC’s Verizon center show is scheduled for Dec 16.
The CW has ordered the 21st cycle of America’s Next Top Model. Casting is currently underway for the cycle, which will again feature men and women contestants vying for the Top Model title. Dates for the start of production and premiere will be announced at a later date. The Press Release on this confuses me as I have no idea what a “21st Cycle” even means. ANTM is produced in over 20 different countries, so I guess another American version is the 21st? Weird, no production start date has been set. The current season, airing Fridays, 9:00-10:00p.m. ET, will name the newest winner of during the finale on November 15.
Since the hit CW Network action series, Supernatural has entered it’s seventh season, The Leviathans have given Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) Winchester a bigger, even more dangerous enemy to battle than the brothers have faced before. These evil creatures from purgatory make Lucifer look like a choir boy in comparison!
In nerxt week’s new episode of Supernatural, titled ‘Slash Fiction’ (directed by John Showalter and written by Robbie Thompson), two of the Leviathans prove that just because you are a bloodthirsty monster out to destroy the human race doesn’t mean you can’t appreciate wearing the finest in hot looking male fashion. Which is why these two savvy dressers are wearing this season’s coveted ‘Winchester look’ and we aren’t just talking clothes here!
The two Leviathans clone the brothers Winchester; taking on their whole look from sexy head to toe. Unfortunately for the real Sam and Dean, this is more than just a fashion statement for their Leviathan look a likes; it’s a all out fashion war that puts the ‘Winchester Look” on the FBI’s most wanted list because the Leviathans, dressed in this height of hot looking male fashion, have gone on a killing spree. Now, everyone wants the originals because who could believe that ‘knock offs’ could look so perfect. Which means Sam and Dean Winchester have become the subject of a nationwide manhunt and need to drop off the grid and hide out untill they can figure out how to get rid of the Leviathan copycats who are using the ‘Winchester look” for their own nefarious purposes!
Check out the images provided by the CW Network to see more of the Leviathans wearing the hottest look in male fashions and tell us if you think they pull it off as well as the originals do. Oh and the always fashionable Crowley(Mark Sheppard) has his own agenda with the Leviathans, so check him out too.

October 12, 2011 (Burbank, California) – The CW Network gave full season orders to its three freshmen series Hart of Dixie, Ringer and The Secret Circle, it was announced today by Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW.
“We believe in the creative strength of these dramas; by giving them back nine orders we can give our audience the chance to enjoy complete seasons of all three of them,” said Pedowitz. “With compelling storylines, engaging characters and tremendous buzz, we firmly believe that Hart of Dixie, Ringer and The Secret Circle can become signature series for The CW, the kind of top-notch shows that are synonymous with our brand.”

Television and CBS Television Studios with executive producers Leila Gerstein (“Gossip Girl,” “Eli Stone”), Josh Schwartz (“Gossip Girl,” “Chuck,” “The O.C.”), Stephanie Savage (“Gossip Girl,” “The O.C.”), Len Goldstein and Donald Todd (“Samantha Who?,” “Ugly Betty”).

As Supernatural comes up on its season seven premiere on the CW Network this Friday at 9PM (EST), there is a lot of positive mainstream media buzz surrounding the long running action/thriller series. According to reports, Supernatural, which stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles as the monster hunting/demon fighting brothers Winchester, is receiving more media attention than some series on bigger networks; even more buzz than Glee according to what we’ve been hearing. Supernatural has come a long way to reach that level of success and attention; like the perilous lives of the Winchesters, the road to Supernatural’s success is paved with missteps and with ‘cliffhangers’, as they often waited ‘on the bubble’ for news of renewal.
Six seasons ago, Supernatural premiered on the now defunct WB Network with two relatively unknown actors in the lead roles and having been created by screen writer Eric Kripke; whose major credit up to that point was the horror movie, Boogey Man. This combination however served to create a unique and fascinating series. Sam and Dean Winchester and their black ’67 Chevy Impala ‘muscle car’ loaded with weapons, immediately found a devoted fan following that tuned into the series every week; never losing track of it even through network and airing night changes. Those same fans led an internet campaign to promote the series and rally around it. In those early years, bloggers and online journalists were the biggest form a media promotion for Supernatural as it steadfastly made its way along the path to where it is now; a long running, successful series for Warner Brothers and The CW Network.
Series stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles are now moderately well known outside of the circle of Supernatural fans and viewers; they, along with the series itself, is now capturing the attention of bigger media ‘fish’ in the pond known as entertainment reporting. More than that, Supernatural hit some major marks by scoring a cover on TV Guide by winning the magazine’s first ever ‘Fan Favorite Poll’ last year. Now, Sam & Dean Winchester and Castiel have joined the hallowed ranks of Captain Kirk, Indiana Jones and Doctor Who; all three Supernatural characters were honored in SFX Magazine as part of the ‘Top 100 Icons of Scif-Fi & Fantasy of the 21st Century’ reader’s poll making it a trifecta inclusion for the series.
