    Is it just me or is everything starting super late this year?

    • Steven says:

      It’s sort of mixed. There’s a huge glut of premieres during the week of September 21, but the CW is holding everything very late for sure.

      • Pia says:

        I remember shows starting at mid-to-late August just a few years ago.

        • bwillard5 says:

          I remember reading a couple years ago that The CW would start airing their Season premieres in October to stop the amount of repeats and breaks in a season.

          • alistaircrane says:

            They shifted their premieres to October so they wouldn’t get lost in the shuffle of the other networks’ September premieres. Makes sense. Let these returns be their own events.

    • Reality says:

      Since 2012, The CW has started their fall season in the beginning of October for two main reasons: 1) To not have to compete with new shows starting in September during ‘premiere week,’ and 2) to avoid very long hiatuses and assure more episodes airing weekly. They previously had their fall season start in the beginning of September to get a head start on the other broadcast networks, but that forced them to have longer hiatuses.

      TL; DR: This is the 4th Fall season they’ve started in October to have shorter hiatues, nothing new here.

      • Pia says:

        My comment wasn’t directed at the CW specifically.

      • Flashback says:

        There’s another way to avoid so many breaks. Stop being cheap and give us longer seasons with more episodes. Once upon a time, almost 50 years ago, there were as many as 30 episodes per season, more than a half year of weekly new episodes. Nowadays, we’re stuck with about 22 on most shows.

  2. Annie says:

    All I care about is the 100 premier date. I can’t believe it got lumped into midseason with BatB. It deserves SO MUCH BETTER

  3. Boiler says:

    Very discouraging not seeing HoD while lower rated shows stay

  4. Kate says:

    The CW Fall premiers are always after the major networks and are usually the beginning of October. So this year is on par with past years.

  5. Lore says:

    ANTM until october this show is suposed to be a summer show, last season started on august..

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      An annual confusion, tradition almost — CW puts ANTM there to demark what will be airing after, in this case, Reign. Edited for clarity.

  6. Mr. Tran K says:

    Let’s hope that Season Two of The Flash is going to be way better than the first season and don’t called it a “sophomore slump”.

    • herman1959 says:

      Season 1 of The Flash was phenomenal. I only hope they can do as well for Season 2; “way better” is too much to hope for.

    • Kristina says:

      Season 1 was awesome. All they really need to do is maintain the momentum they have and Season 2 will be fantastic as well.

  7. Angie says:

    America’s NTP starts August 5 according to their Facebook page.

  8. Hello, I am really curious to know how Damon is dealing with the loss of Elena as much as I want her to come back, but now this will give us a chance to focus on Caroline and Stefan, our new Couple.

  9. Rolfe says:

    Four months away until Jane The Virgin…. :(

  10. alistaircrane says:

    Crazy Ex-Girlfriend looks like a hot mess. I’m going to have to tune in to see this trainwreck for myself.

  11. Ashley says:

    Do we know yet how many episodes iZombie is getting?

  12. Jared says:

    I love my CW shows! I’m glad the network launches them later on and not during the official premiere week.

  13. A fan of TV says:

    Is The 100 doing another 16-ep season, but straight through? Or is their episode order shorter this time?

  14. Mr. Tran K says:

    Crazy Ex-Girlfriend will most likely be a disaster for The CW even though the series is a musical.

  15. Joey Padron says:

    excited for The Flash and Arrow’s new seasons!

  16. Peter says:

    What about the 100?
