The CW today became the latest network to release its midseason schedule. With only one hole to fill, that of departing sophomore Life Unexpected which did not receive a back order, and one midseason series on deck, reality competition Shedding for the Wedding, the network is moving freshman drama Hellcats to LUX‘s Tuesday 9 PM slot behind One Tree Hill to form an all-reality Wednesday lineup with America’s Next Top Model and Shedding for the Wedding. The rest of the schedule will remain intact.

The CW today became the first broadcast network to announce premiere dates for its fall lineup. As usual, the CW will roll out the bulk of its schedule ahead of the traditional fall premiere week, starting on September 8 with the debut of new drama Hellcats.
On Wednesday, September 8, Cycle 15 of AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL (8:00-9:00 p.m.) kicks-off the 2010-2011 season, followed by the series premiere of new drama HELLCATS (9:00-10:00 p.m.). HELLCATS is a drama about a young pre-law student (Aly Michalka) whose world is turned upside-down when she loses her scholarship and has to join the college’s competitive cheerleading squad. Ashley Tisdale also stars as a young woman who is totally committed to the cheerleading squad to realize her dreams.
