With Tuesday on fire and Wednesday and Thursday solid, the CW is taking another crack at Mondays where it has struggled this fall with Hart Of Dixie and especially Beauty & The Beast. After a monthlong hiatus, the former will relocate to Fridays in March where it will follow the second cycle of summer standout Whose Line Is It Anyway? On Friday, Hart Of Dixie will succeed fellow sophomore drama The Carrie Diaries, which had a 13-episode order. The CW’s new Monday lineup will consist of new midseason drama Star-Crossed and fall freshman The Tomorrow People, which will relocate from Wednesday night for a sci-fi block the CW brass hope will do better than Hart Of Dixie and Beauty & The Beast. Before the new lineup takes hold, CW’s Monday will go through a transitional period with newcomer Star-Crossed paired with holdover Beauty & The Beast for a month in a romance-themed combo. The Tomorrow People will be vacating the post-Arrow slot, which the CW wants to use as a launch pad for a second genre drama this season, midseason entry The 100, which is considered the most compatible with Arrow. After its March 10 telecast, Beauty & The Beast will go on hiatus, with return date for the remaining six original episodes TBD. Whose Line will warm up the Friday 8-9 PM period with repeats from last summer from February 14-March 14 before the sketch comedy launches its second season with two back-to-back originals on March 21. Starting the following week, a new Whose Line will air at 8 PM, followed by a repeat at 8:30 PM. Here are the CW’s midseason premiere dates:
8-9 PM — Star-Crossed (Series Premiere)
