CW plans big changes to Fall 2012-13 TV schedule

The CW announced its Fall 2012-13 TV schedule Thursday, overhauling its line-up by moving all its surviving shows, except the hit "The Vampire Diaries," to new nights or times.

After a year in which the network watched its ratings dip 15 percent from the previous year, CW President Mark Pedowitz presented five new dramas, three of which will debut in the fall. The network also said it will wait to premiere its new season until some time in October to avoid the usual September onslaught of fall TV premieres.

"Diaries" will remain at 7 p.m. Thursdays, followed by the new drama "Beauty and the Beast" starring "Smallville" alum Kristin Kreuk."America's Next Top Model" moves to 7 p.m. Fridays, paired with"Nikita," which moves into the 8 p.m. slot.

You can check out the full altered schedule below, which includes other new series "Arrow"and "Emily Owens, M.D." (formerly "First Cut"). "Cult"and "The Carrie Diaries" will premiere at midseason. "The Carrie Diaries" replaces "Gossip Girl,"which has been given an abbreviated final season.
