    I have not watched the CW regularly in years. That being said, this year I have tuned in to every single episode of Secret Circle, Heart of Dixie, and Ringer. If these shows go off the air for any reason, it just means that once again the network will be basically forgotten in this household. They are some of the best shows airing this tv season, and there is absolutely no reason to cancel them, unless actually getting people to watch the network for the first time since CW took over the network channel is a reason that is. I guess we will have to see weather the brilliance that brought these shows to the airwaves can carry over and allow them to not only stay on the air, but also not force them to warp into something that is unwatchable like so many other networks have done.

    Mark my words – The L.A. Complex is about to TAKE OVER The CW!! I saw some of the clips online, and this show is ridiculously good. April 24th, im all in!!

    I really hope “Hart of Dixie” comes back for a second season- it’s such a cute show!! I like that it’s so different for the other CW shows and Rachel Bilson is so adorable!

    I am from Canada and they already aired all 6 episodes. I like the show, but it does not hit you like a bullet. I liked it a lot, but as there are a lot of characters, it is the kind of show that you will have to invest in.
    BTW: It is not a reality show. It is a light drama scripted show.

    I am going to watch LA Complex it seems really interesting and I have a friend from canada that says that dont let the promo fool you and that you have to really get into past the first episode and it gets really good so i am going to watch it every weekend

    Didn’t Hulu do a show like LA Complex? I bet LA Complex will bring in huge ratings like ReModeled. The CW is where reality TV goes to die.
