CW Sets Fall Premiere Dates
The CW is sticking with what works for them with its fall rollout.
The younger-skewing network on Friday announced that it is staying with its staggered fall premiere date rollout schedule in October, where it avoids competing with the Big 4's crowded September push.
Freshman No Tomorrow — the latest hourlong comedy to join the network's lineup — will bow twice. The comedy will have its series premiere on Tuesday, Oct. 4, following the season premiere of The Flash (The CW's highest-rated series) and air an encore on Monday, Oct. 10, following the network's debut of CBS transfer Supergirl.
Fellow freshman Frequency will bow Oct. 5 following Arrow.
While Fox and NBC, who both announced their fall schedules this week, will concentrate all of their new and returning shows during the crowded Premiere Week in September, The CW will stagger its rollout from Oct. 4 through Friday, Oct. 21, when The Vampire Diaries and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend return with new episodes.
