Gossip Girl Moves to Mondays


The CW is moving “Gossip Girl” to Monday nights at 8 p.m. starting Jan. 28. Then, on Feb. 18, the show will be joined at 9 p.m. by the second season of “Pussycat Dolls Present,” reports Variety. This time out, the Pussycats are forming a new band, Girlicious.

The move is just one of several midseason shuffles the CW announced on Friday. On Tuesdays, CW will replace repeats of “Crowned” at 8 p.m. with repeats of “Reaper” until March 11, when “Beauty and the Geek” returns. (“One Tree Hill” remains at 9 p.m.)

“America’s Next Top Model” continues Wednesdays at 8 p.m., while repeats of the Monday “Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious” will run at 9 starting Feb. 20.

On Thursdays, “Smallville” will continue at 8 p.m., while a handful of remaining original “Reaper” episodes will run at 9 starting Feb. 28.

Fridays remain the same with “WWE Smackdown.” Then, on Sundays starting Feb. 10 will the CW’s urban-skewing comedy lineup, which the network is shifting from Monday night.

That includes repeats of “Everybody Hates Chris” at 7:30 p.m. (following the “CW Now” pre-sold magazine show) and original episodes of “Chris” (which had already completed its season when the strike began) at 8 p.m. “Aliens in America” will air at 8:30, followed by “Girlfriends” at 9 and “The Game” at 9:30.

Not in the mix: “Supernatural,” which goes on hiatus but will return at some point; and family drama “Life Is Wild,” which isn’t expected to return. On the reality side, “Crowned” ends its run at the start of February; other shows, including “Farmer Takes a Wife,” are still waiting in the wings.
