    Fridays blow!With Grimm gone that night is pretty dead except for SHIELD.

  2. I wonder why they always put Supernatural a week later? Is it to avoid the DC momentum? But Arrow is part of that.

    Any ideas TVLine?

  3. Jonathan Carpenter says:

    Have we gotten any word of Legends of Tomorrow’s episode count? I’m assuming Black Lightning will take it’s spot after it finishes.

    • Mo says:

      I hope they keep Barry in the SF until Legends is done for the season. That Tuesday is way to packed for me.

  4. Lysh says:

    At first I was like, ugh four months, but there’s SDCC next month and I’m sure tons of news once people go back to set, and I have so many books to read.
    Is Legends still doing 18 episodes?

  5. Kevin Tran says:

    Dynasty and Valor won’t last that long. Black Lightning and Life Sentence are destined to become breakout hits until mid-season just like what Riverdale did. Is it going to tough for Arrow in the 9 pm Thursday night time slot facing off against Scandal?

  6. Emor says:

    Well Cw, I’ll see you in March 2018 when I-zombie & The 100 come back.

  7. lastfrontier84 says:

    Friday is ironically going to be one of my busiest nights DVR wise I think. OUAT, Blindspot, The Exorcist, Inhumans/AOS , JTV

  8. Joey Padron says:

    I’m excited to watch the new seasons of all of DC shows the fall!

  9. T.W.S.S. says:

    So is “Legends of Tomorrow” moving to Wednesdays or not, because ads on the CW app seem to think it is.

  10. Drew says:

    Based on his Twitter comment, Stephen Amell is thrilled with the later time slot for Arrow. I firmly stand behind his commitment to at least one bare bum in the 9 PM showing of Arrow. Who’s with me?
    .
    I think TVLine needs to confirm exactly WHOSE bum he’s hoping to see. (Or run a poll of TVLine readers to see whose bum we want to see!) Below is Amell’s Tweet today:
    .
    October 12th.
    It’s a Thursday.
    It’s at 9 pm.

    Hopefully the later time slot leads to at least one bare bum shown on tv.

  11. Sharon says:

    I’m pretty sure Valor and Dynasty will bomb.

    • Vince says:

      Valor I agree but Dynasty only have to get Riverdale numbers to get renewed. That one had dreadful numbers too yet got renewed.

      • TV Gord says:

        I think Riverdale’s numbers are low on The CW because it’s on Netflix the next day without having to FF through commercials. It would be nice to know how many hits it gets there, but of course, they never say.

  12. fernando933 says:

    Valor will be the first drama to be cancel and be replace with blacklighting or life sentence

  13. Stephanie davis says:

    Dynasty. Not going to last not even a season..would been better have continuous from old ..I know not all actors are passed but put some in there call it next generation. .this will attract young and old to watch not just young.. I grew up on these shows also knots landing and Dallas….as public watch. What happen…

  14. Janice says:

    When will the 100 be back?

  15. Janice says:

    When is the 100 coming back ?

  16. fly says:

    definitely watching flash, legends of tomorrow and arrow but not watching that useless program supergirl anymore.

  17. How will the narrative momentum of the DCU crossovers be affected by Arrow’s schedule change? Crossover, Crossover, Dynasty/Valor, Crossover doesn’t quite work imo

  18. Charley says:

    1- We need Stephen Amell’s bare bum on TV
    2- We need Stephen Amell’s bare bum on TV
    3- We need Jared and Jensen’s Supernatural bare bums also
    4- …repeat 1-3…
