The CW Announces 2011-12 Season Premiere Dates

Ringer tv showThe CW network has announced the premiere dates for their 2011-12 season. In the past, they’ve premiered some of their shows a week or two early, in an attempt to get viewers hooked before the bigger networks run their shows. They’re not doing that this time around, perhaps to eliminate a week or two of repeats later in the season.

Here’s the press release:

I was thinking what MK wrote. I wish KevN’sync’s predictions were correct, but I can just see the CW’s demo of young girls eating up a show like H8R. I wonder about the casting of Bilson as a sophisticated New York City woman. She is pretty, but nothing about her look says she has ever been sophisticated.

Hey all I care about is NIKITA and SUPERNATURAL are coming back. That’s good enough for me.
