The CW Gives New Night to The Originals


NEW YORK: The CW has announced its 2014-15 fall schedule, which sees The Originals moving to Monday nights, giving a lead-in to the freshman comedy Jane the Virgin.

The breakout hit The Originals starts things off at 8 p.m., followed by Jane the Virgin, starring Gina Rodriguez, at 9 p.m.

Tuesdays feature an action-heavy lineup, with The Flash, from DC Entertainment, at 8 p.m., leading into the tenth season of Supernatural at 9 p.m.

Wednesdays see the pairing of returning series Arrow and The 100.

The drama The Vampire Diaries returns on Thursday nights at 8 p.m., with Reign, starring Adelaide Kane as Mary, Queen of Scots, at 9 p.m.

Fridays present the improv comedy Whose Line Is It Anyway? at 8 p.m., then America's Next Top Model takes over at 9 p.m.

New dramas for the 2015 lineup are iZombie and The Messengers, with the returning series Hart of Dixie and Beauty and the Beast.

"This is a different CW than we were just a few years ago. Our audience is broader and more inclusive than it has ever been, and we are growing on-air and on all digital platforms," said Mark Pedowitz, the president of The CW.

"We just finished our most-watched season in three years, and our schedule is as strong as it has ever been, with more vibrant and more diverse programming. Next season, with superhero action shows like Arrow and The Flash, epic fantasies like The Vampire Diaries and Reign, the apocalyptic worlds of The Messengers and The 100, and the outrageous comedy of Jane the Virgin and Whose Line Is It Anyway?, we will build and expand our audience even more, and keep our momentum going with the kind of high-octane, high-impact entertainment that our viewers love."
