Top Model has become a key part of The CW's late summer programming, leading in to its fall programming on Fridays. The 20th cycle, which for the first time featured men competing alongside women, will conclude on Nov. 15. The 21st cycle is currently casting and will again feature both men and women vying for the Top Model title.  

The series returned in August, notching a two-year high among adults 18-49, averaging a 0.6 rating and 1.6 million viewers for its two-hour bow, topping Fox repeats for the night.
