What do you do with TV shows that few people watched? Rerun them during the summer, of course. Few people saw Shedding for the Wedding and Plain Jane so the network’s giving them a second chance.
Shedding for the Wedding ran during the season and has been cancelled. Plain Jane ran last summer and, though additional episodes are being produced for overseas, according to Futon Critic, The CW is just rerunning last summer’s installments.
Here’s the press release:
Please note the following schedule changes, which will remain in effect through the end of the summer:
· On MONDAY, JULY 18:
— GOSSIP GIRL moves to the 8:00-9:00 p.m. timeslot.
— ONE TREE HILL moves to the 9:00-10:00 p.m. timeslot.
· On TUESDAY, JULY 19:
— 90210 moves to the 8:00-9:00 p.m. timeslot.
— SHEDDING FOR THE WEDDING will air in the 9:00-10:00 p.m. timeslot.

What do you think? Will you tune in to see any of these reruns?

Looking at the CW’s schedule, I can understand why Shedding for the Wedding had low ratings. Most of the shows look like they are designed for tween and young teen girls, and what tween or young teen girl needs a show about getting in shape for a wedding? Just looking at the picture of the contestants, I can’t imagine that any of them are young enough to watch the CW shows.
