CW Hopes That New Lineup, '90210' Can Provide Spark In 2008-09

May 14th, 2008 11:32am EDT
Jennie Garth will star on 90210
It's been a rough couple of years for the CW. While execs tout victories in certain small and obscure demos, the fact remains that the network regularly gets outdrawn by more than one basic cable network. Despite that, there was a sense of optimism as the network unveiled its 2008-2009 schedule yesterday.

Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9 p.m.) - The writers of CSI take a stab at "Two and a Half Men." Literally. No need to worry. George Eads is on the case.

Bones (FOX, 8 p.m.) - Booth and Brennan play Mom and Pops to a motherless infant. Let the cooing and awkward spit-up begin!

Dancing With the Stars (ABC, 8 p.m.) - The men take center stage tonight as the sixth season kicks off. Another episode, featuring the female contestants, airs Tuesday at 9 p.m.

How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8:30 p.m.) - Not the episode with Britney, but this being the first original episode in months is an even better reason to tune in. We also hear Barney will be St. Patty's Day suiting up.

Monday, March 10

Canterbury's Law (FOX, 8 p.m.) - Julianna Margulies (ER), she of the perfectly sculpted eyebrows and keeper of Doug Ross' heart, stars as a hard-edged lawyer in this show from producer Denis Leary.

New Amsterdam (FOX, 9 p.m.) - Okay, this is the immortal detective's regular timeslot. Thanks for making it as confusing as possible, FOX.

Medium (NBC, 10 p.m.) - Don't you hate it when your in-laws show up? At least they're not showing up as visions from the beyond like Allison's mother-in-law (Kathy Baker).

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Monday, March 3

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (FOX, 8 p.m.) - It feel like only yesterday that the series premiered, but hopefully tonight's two-hour finale won't be the series finale. The show is a keeper for supporting players Summer Glau and Brian Austin Green (who would have thunk it?) alone.

My Name Is Earl (TBS, 10 p.m.) - The NBC sitcom makes its syndication debut with an encore of its karmic pilot, complete with wise words of wisdom from Carson D...

John Stamos
It's hard to imagine that it's been 20 years since we were first introduced to the Tanner family, Winnie Cooper and Kevin Arnold. What happened to some of our favorite prime time stars two decades after they charmed us on the small screen?

Full House (1987-1995)

"Full House" was a show about talk show host Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) who was raising his three girls with his brother-in-law Jesse Katsopolis (John Stamos) and his best friend Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier) after his wife Pam is killed by a drunk driver. You laughed, you cried and you learned a lesson all in one episode.
