Gossip Girl (Poster)


Good morning, tuberinos! The official CW upfront presentation takes place tonight, but I thought you might want a sneak peek of the rumored schedule for next season, chock-full, as it is, of theme nights.

The main theme of those nights? Beautiful, moderately troubled, well-off teenagers at school and at play, and if the series should last a few years (Nielsen willing), perhaps, someday, at work in an aesthetically pleasing but not too terribly challenging occupation that requires no training whatsoever.

Did I mention they were all very beautiful? Click in to meet your fab new friends and some old faves as well!

Monday: Beautiful-People Theme Night

Gossip Girl:  You know you love it. The 24-episode season two is set to premiere in September with the kids at play in New York's beautiful Hamptons. Right now Gossip Girl is the template upon which the CW is building itself, so look for tons of more promotion for Serena, Blair and Dan in the weeks and months to come.

One Tree Hill:  Sophia Bush! James Lafferty! CMM! The craziest plotlines this side of Prison Break, only with much hotter actors! What's not to love?!

Tuesday: More-Beautiful-People Theme Night

90210:  America, we have come full circle. The original 90210 is the creative ancestor of the entire CW network, so it only makes sense that a new rendition of the series would be readied for the See-Dub as it finally settles into a post-WB-UPN-merger brand identity. Jennie Garth is on board; Tori Spelling is rumored to be stopping by as well; and I'd bet my shoes that Jason Priestly will stop by to direct one or more episodes before the first season wraps. I think ol' Aaron would be proud to see his kids all grown up and still devoted to the family.

Surviving the Filthy Rich:  Originally titled How to Teach Filthy Rich Girls, the series features a middle-class J-school grad who takes a job tutoring a pair of filthy rich twins to decent SAT scores and eventually a high-end college. The twins are part Olsen, part Hilton and all trouble. Think Devil Wears Prada meets The Nancy Diaries. (And think of all the fabulous handbags this series will showcase! Whee!)

Wednesday: Reality-Series-Beautiful-People Theme Night

ANTM:  This is cycle 11, and I am so already on my couch waiting.

Stylista:  The Jimmy Choo-heeled footprints of The Devil Wears Prada are all over the CW this season! Stylista, from Tyra Banks and Ken Mok, is basically Devil: The Reality Show meets Lauren's Teen Vogue internship, as 11 fashionable young things compete for a gig at Elle. (Mmm...did Stylista clash with Nina Garcia's Project Runway gig? Maybe that's why she's no longer with Elle?)

Thursday: Beautiful-People-Who-Fight-Paranormal-Crime Theme Night

Smallville/Reaper:  Smallville should be back, myriad producer and cast defections notwithstanding. Reaper has been picked up for 13 episodes at midseason and is expected to slot into Smallville's place on the schedule when that series is done.

Supernatural:  According to exec producer Eric Kripke, next season, "We're gonna spend a little less time talking about giant movements and war and more time talking about the brothers' relationship and how they react to that war. I think we sort of have a new species of supernatural being that we'll be introducing in season four that will take people by surprise. We have a few tricks up our sleeves."

Friday: Beautiful-People-Who-Are-Funny Theme Night

Everybody Hates Chris:  Low ratings aside, the critical acclaim for Chris and company are keeping this series safe.

The Game:  Old schedule buddy Girlfriends is gone, but The Game lives on, now on Fridays...
