“This fall, The CW embarks on the first step to become bigger and broader by offering our viewers a wide variety of programming from premium adult dramas to bold comedies and binge-worthy unscripted franchises,” said Brad Schwartz, president of entertainment at The CW Network. “We are presenting a fall lineup that includes classic CW series like the smash multiplatform hit All American plus introducing new premium dramatic offerings such as 61st Street, Sullivan’s Crossing and The Spencer Sisters. We are proud to bring comedy back to The CW on Tuesday nights with some of the funniest and heartwarming family sitcoms on television with Son of a Critch, Run the Burbs, Children Ruin Everything and Everyone Else Burns. We are thrilled to welcome one of the biggest and most outrageous unscripted franchises on television, FBoy Island, to The CW family alongside long-running hit alternative series Penn & Teller: Fool Us, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Masters of Illusion and World’s Funniest Animals. And Sundays will introduce a season-long family co-viewing night beginning with the acclaimed I Am film franchise. The new CW is now a broadcast network built for a broadcast audience.”
