Ah, The CW. Home of TV's hunky vampires and naïve young doctors. So maybe the programs on this channel aren't exactly Masterpiece Theater, we're still willing to bet there's at least one show you've tuned in to watch. And honestly we can't blame you, because with The CW you know exactly what you're going to get, attractive actors and loads of drama. Who ever said being predictable was a bad thing? But we digress; here are the new upcoming shows for The CW.
Emily Owens M.D. What's it About: High school was a nightmare for poor Emily Owens (Mamie Gummer). Constantly tormented and labeled a "nerd" by her classmates, she couldn't wait to escape to college and a fresh start. Now she's beginning her first-year internship at Denver Memorial Hospital along with her med-school crush (Justin Hartley), only to discover that her old nemesis is working there as well. With her new life collapsing around her, Emily suddenly realizes she's living through high school all over again.
First Impressions: This looks like an effeminate version of Scrubs. Which reminds me, doesn't The CW already have a girly doctor show?
Final Verdict: Undetermined
Beauty and the Beast What's it About: Smallville's Kristin Kreuk returns to TV in this upcoming reboot of an 80's drama. On the night of her mother's murder, Catherine Chandler (Kreuk) was saved from death by a mysterious monster. Now years later, Catherine is a cop and still looking for her mother's killer. What she finds instead is Vincent (Jay Ryan) a handsome, brooding young man with a supernatural secret.
First Impressions: Twilight.0 anyone?
Final Verdict: Pass
Arrow What's it About: After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was stranded on a remote, Pacific island for five years. Upon his rescue, he returns to his home in Starling City only to find his father's empire overrun with corruption and the once beautiful city infested with crime. Determined to save the city, and make amends for his past sins in the process, Oliver takes on the guise of Green Arrow, a crime fighting vigilant and archer of extraordinary skill.
First Impressions: Ok, we'll admit we're a little excited for this one. Green Arrow may not be the most popular superhero out there, but with Smallville out of the picture and no other super-dramas to steal the spotlight, it will probably have the entire Comic Con population eating out of its hand. Plus, it stars a guy with rock hard abs girls can admire. Everybody wins!
Final Verdict: Watch
