CW Unveils 2011 Midseason Schedule (Prepare to be Peeved!)

cw_pr

What’s the only thing more infuriating than the CW filling the soon-to-be vacant spot in their lineup as a result of their unceremonious cancelation of LIFE UNEXPECTED with a sure-to-be unwatchable reality show entitled SHEDDING FOR THE WEDDING that pits 10 overweight couples in head-to-head competition as they attempt to lose the unwanted weight for a dream wedding? Well, how about the fact that the network refuses to even acknowledge that they’ve canceled the beloved little-series that-couldn’t by calling the January 18th two-hour finale its “season,” not “series” finale! At least that was our takeaway from this just released 2010 midseason schedule that we’ve copied verbatim after the jump.

    Such a shame i hope no watches the reality show and they get a clue :p

    Ya know, CW has offered up some ridiculously-bad reality concepts before, but a blatant rip-off of The Biggest Loser, combined with some wedding nonsense, sounds worse than CROWNED. Exactly WHAT “target audience” are they going for with this crap? WHO in the programming dept. jumped up and said “That’s it! A winner!” ??

    I hope it was produced for free, because the ratings will be so miniscule, tears will be flowing. Then again, perhaps I once again have underestimated the stupidity of the American viewer…and it’ll be a big hit. Wagers?

    Nothing the CW has aired post-Top Model has been a hit and I don’ t see Shedding as the exception. It’ll go the same way as Fly Girls and High Society, i.e. forgotten by May.

    I’m surprised there weren’t more changes, to be honest. Too boring and safe of a schedule for a network that needs drastic change in order to compete. Idol will murder TVD and their Wednesday shows.

  • Bring back Legend of the Seeker. I miss that mercurial monarch Lord Rahl and his ravishing red robes. How could you take it off the air before we found out what Darken was going repay Nicci for her betrayal of him???? It was the best show on your network and has inspired fan groups in Italy, France, Germany, Australia and the United States. There were so many great stories still left to explore: Would Kahlan and Richard ever find a way to be together??? Who was the powerful new foe Shota saw in her vision??? Would Darken be able to regain his throne??? How could he survive in the world without his magical powers???

    I loved Legend of the Seeker, too, but it wasn’t a CW show…it was syndicated (and just happened to be shown on a lot of CW affiliates). You’re right, though, Legend would’ve made a great ready-made fanbase companion to either Vampire, Smallville or Supernatural.

  • Is it remotely possible they could keep Life Unexpected on as a summer show?

  • Allison Gail Rosenblum

    Do we think they are calling it the SEASON finale because maybe it will get picked up again and the story/show can continue?

  • Nick

    Don’t we WISH! Sadly, the CW execs believe they can fool the viewers by telling them it’s a “season” finale, hoping to defer our anger at losing a great show. They are the only ones on the planet who actually believe they’re fooling anyone.

  • LOL.. Does the CW honestly believe that the fans are buying this “season” finale crap?

    we need fantasy on tv please… in case u don’t know what fantasy that is, it’s LEGEND OF THE SEEKER… and when you do consider the show, can you kindly put it on an earlier timeslot? primetime would be nice… thank you.

  • True – the fans rallied at DragonCon, ComicCon and RingCon and raised $31,000 for ads in the Hollywood Reporter and Variety. You would think some sharp producer would see that and realize what a goldmine Legend of the Seeker could be if it was given the proper advertising (which it never was) and a decent time slot (which it never had). It’s inspired extraordinary fan art, videos, music, stories and fan fiction!!!!

  • Terry Goodkind’s Legend of the Seeker Series were all New York Times Bestsellers!!! There is a worldwide fan base out there and a new Terry book coming out this Spring (The Omen Machine). Please pick up the sword of truth and continue the legendary journeys. Thanks Cee-jae.

  • Legend of the Seeker would be great to have back. Not everybody wants to watch reality shows all the time! Seeing as how the viewer ultimately pays the bills, maybe someone could start listening to what they want to watch instead of just throwing out another disposable bit of crud like Shedding for the Wedding. Even the name sounds silly.

  • Legend of the Seeker is the best show I’ve ever watched… a 3rd season.This show for a season three It’s an amazing show with a maniacal fandom thats only growing bigger everyday.It’s an amazing show with a maniacal fandom thats only growing bigger everyday.

  • I’m a big fan of legend of seeker. I love it THE STORY IS A GREAT ONE. I HAVE READ ALL THE BOOKS AND WISHED THAT THERE WAS MORE. ABC should give this show a third season, we the fans are spreading the word about the show and it’s great cast!

  • LOTS is one of the best shows ever! It has everything – magic, romance, compassion, action scene, friendshio! There should definitely be a third season! My favourite show so far, and not just me. In theese times, when everything is just special effects, LOTS gives much more than that. And it’s quite obvious what is that.
    Definitely a third season!!!! I

  • Since this is Smallville’s last season, the CW should think of replacing it with another superb fantasy, action-adventure epic like Legend of the Seeker. The show has it all. For the guys there’s monsters and mayhem galore, from gruesome gars to bloodthirsty banelings. For the girls there are uber hot hunks Craig Parker and Craig Horner. Parker plays the devilishly dashing despot Darken Rahl who is out to destroy his younger brother Richard Cypher. Each show is an adrenaline pumping rush with a little comedy and some good morals thrown in to please moms and dads. Please take up the sword of truth and let the legendary adventures continue.
