The picture is just too big to post here, but here's the link.

So what new shows are people interested in on here?

For me, I'll give NEW AMSTERDAM, FBI, THE ROOKIE (Nathan Fillion!), and maybe the new MAGNUM PI a try.

Edited to make the link active.  Also had to change the original link to another one because there was an error connecting to Wordpress~Matt

I may try MAGNUM also.

I see SUPERGIRL is moving to Sunday.
I'm not sure if this is a vote of confidence or not.
On one hand CW may have faith that SUPERGIRL will help draw viewers to their new original programming day..
On the other hand since viewers are not used to a CW Sunday it may be a sacrificial lamb until that day gets on its feet. Especially the 8pm slot.

The Rookie, maybe.  The wife will definitely give Chamed a chance.

So many procedurals!  Ugh.  More cop shows!  More medical dramas!  More reboots!

sigh

This is pretty much why my network viewing has gone down in recent years.  Not television in general, but from the five networks.  I gravitate to cable and streaming to get more and more of my fix.  That said, I'll probably check out MURPHY BROWN.  Newsroom satire in the "fake news" era should make for some interesting television.  Also all-in on THE ALEC BALDWIN SHOW.  His podcast "Here's the Thing..." is often a fun, interesting, and enlightening way to spend 40 minutes.

I watched the trailers to MURPHY BROWN and MAGNUM P.I. earlier tonight. I will watch MB. I plan on staying far away from MAGNUM. The spirit and chemistry of the original show is nowhere to be found, and theyve turned Magnum into Batman. Im sure well watch the inevitable crossover with HAWAII FIVE-O since thats one of the wifes favorite shows (McGarrett is Batman and the Flash in that one) but other than that, I will not watch any of it.

Well, the new season will be beginning soon!

I'm adding one new show to my list above:  THE COOL KIDS.  I'm not generally a big sitcom fan, but this looks hilarious!  And I must admit I am slightly tempted to tune into the first episode or two of THE CONNORS....

I'm with Matt on this.  The five networks have become this weird monoculture.  The only things I still watch on the networks are The Good Place, AP Bio, and iZombie.  And those are all short seasons, and in the case of iZombie, the last season this year.  Everything else I watch is 'cable' or streaming (though I have Sling, so really I stream everything).

SUPERGIRL was CWs second highest rated show in terms of overall viewers after FLASH, and its fourth highest rated show in the 18-49 demo after FLASH, BLACK LIGHTNING, and SUPERNATURAL, ticking slightly above CWs current it show RIVERDALE. 

I look at it as the CW expecting SUPERGIRL to anchor a new programming night.

Sunday has largest TV viewership. You put your best shows on Sunday in hopes they attract a bigger audience (X-Files, Mork & Mindy, the Good Wife are a few examples of shows moved to Sunday). Fox and CBS also have the NFL as a lead in so the large audience can be built in (except on the West Coast).

There are 2 key nights in Network TV ad sales, Thursday because movies must advertise their Friday releases so they pay a premium for Thursday placement. And Sunday, because the size of the audience is so much bigger.
