I love “Star-crossed” and “Beauty and the Beast.” Because of these shows and “The 100″ this has became my favorite network. It not only appeals to the younger generation but I am a 34 year old mother of three who enjoys this network. Keep up the good work

I am finding CW to be one of the better go-to networks this year. I am a little worried about them moving Heart of Dixie into the slot of death (Fridays are not known for their ratings power hours anymore.) They had better change the ruler by which they measure the success of the show at the same time they change that timeslot. I am loving Tomorrow People, and Sleepy Hollow, and think that Star Crossed looks like something worthy of my time. Our family LOVES Who’s Line Is It Anyway, so we will follow that show to whatever timeslot they give it. We have 4 DVRs in our home that can record two things at once. (We were offered the new Xfinity Hub, but you could only record 4 things across the whole house. BAH!) We fill each of these DVRs daily, and watch EVERYTHING on them. So I am just hoping that these shows will land in timeslots/days that are not already overbooked.

I think it looks like a good lineup, but I really hope that “Beauty and the Beast” is renewed for Season 3. I hope the CW isn’t thinking of replacing “Beauty and the Beast” with “Star-Crossed”, which sounds like a copy-cat series. I prefer the cast and chemistry between Kristin Kruek and Jay Ryan which has meshed nicely. The series has very exciting episodes which have gotten better and better and deserves to be renewed for a third season. PLEASE RENEW “BEAUTY AND THE BEAST” FOR A THIRD SEASON.
