The CW is the first network to unveil its premiere plan for the fall, and Sarah Michelle Gellar’s Ringer will help ring in the 2011-12 TV season starting September 13.
Conversely, The O.C. alumna Rachel Bilson’s Hart of Dixie will close out The CW’s two-week premiere roll-out, while Kevin Williamson’s The Secret Circle lands somewhere in the middle.
