The CW just keeps playing Schedule Boggle
In the game of Boggle, you fill a dome with lettered cubes and you shake it and shake it and hope that when the cubes settle, they'll spell words. The CW is doing the same thing with programming at this point. Only two CW shows -- "Vampire Diaries" and "Arrow" -- will begin the fall in the same place they ended last spring and, remarkably, that's an improvement over last spring, in which only "The Vampire Diaries" remained in place. Perhaps it's because The CW knows its target audience doesn't watch live TV at all anymore that it can be satisfied by shaking its programming dome and coming up with a Monday night with "Hart of Dixie" leading into "Beauty and the Beast"? Or maybe a full year of Monday dramas drawing under a million viewers has made The CW cocky that things can't possibly get worse? Maybe that's the same logic that says it makes sense to take "The Carrie Diaries" from a Monday slot in which it was already struggling and making it fend for itself on Friday?
