Let’s be honest: With all this talk of the Charmed reboot — which many fans, and even one of the original show’s stars, are actively trying to vanquish — it’s hard not to get nostalgic about the show that started it all.

The CW Expands to Sunday Night This Fall, Which Might Be Good News For Bubble Shows Like ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’

The CW is aiming to be a bit of a David in a sea of Sunday night Goliaths. The network is returning to Sunday nights this fall for the first time since 2009, which could be huge news for the producers and talent behind The CW’s existing shows and new pilots.

By adding two more hours to the network’s schedule (8 p.m. to 10 p.m. Et), The CW will program 12 hours of original scripted fare in-season — likely more than Fox in the fall, which will devote at least seven of its 15 hours to sports (and a few more hours toward reality fare).

“We’re increasing our scheduling by 20 percent,” The CW president Mark Pedowitz said. “That’s a big-sized bite. We will do this with the same quality programming we do on Monday through Friday, on Sunday nights.”

Sunday is already a competitive night for networks, with some of

The CW Expanding to 6 Nights, Adding Sunday Programs This Fall

The CW Expanding to 6 Nights, Adding Sunday Programs This Fall
That noise you hear is Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Jane the Virgin quietly inching closer to renewal. The CW announced Wednesday that beginning this fall, it will expand its Monday-Friday primetime schedule to include a sixth night — Sunday.

That means the network will now offer 12 hours of primetime series each week, up front 10. And unlike the last time The CW expanded its slate — in the late ’00s, when Sunday was outsourced to Media Rights Capital and gave us the likes of Valentine and Easy Money — this time Sunday nights will be programmed by the network itself.

The move bodes well for

Charmed TV Show Reboot Casts Jumanji Actor Ser’Darius Blain

The cast of The CW’s upcoming Charmed reboot is finally filling out, as one of the young stars of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has joined the series. The CW has had years of success with both original and adapted series fitting into a variety of genres. While superhero shows are currently the network’s bread and butter, they’re slowly getting back into the supernatural game. There’s, of course, Supernatural, currently in season 13. A pilot order for Wayward Sisters may finally give the series a spinoff. And while The Vampire Diaries is gone, The Originals is set to air its final season soon.

Pilot Season 2018: Volume Steady With 2017, Multi-Camera Comedy Orders Surge

The broadcast networks are now deep in the heart of pilot season, with the volume of pilot orders for the 2018-2019 season on par with last year.

The five networks have collectively ordered 74 pilots, with 45 of those being dramas and 29 comedies. In 2017, the networks also ordered 74 pilots total, with 41 of those being dramas and 33 being comedies. 2017 was also down approximately 16 percent from the 88 pilots ordered in 2016.

Multi-camera comedies, whose imminent destruction has been trumpeted for several years, made a major resurgence this year. Of the 29 comedies ordered to pilot, 16 are multi-cams. That is more than double the seven multi-cams ordered to pilot in 2017. The move to more multi-cams is not surprising, as the format is typically less costly than single-camera comedies at a time when networks are looking to reduce costs.

Reboots, revivals, and adaptations also remain hot commodities across broadcast. CBS has ordered pilots for new versions of “Cagney and Lacey” and “Magnum P.I.” as well

It's Ridiculously Easy to Binge Charmed Before the Reboot Gets Here

  • BuzzSugar
Just when you thought television had run out of things to reboot, The CW announced it's ordered a pilot for an updated Charmed. Based on the beloved '90s and '00s WB show, the new Charmed is set to follow three sisters in a college town where they fight all manner of evil and the patriarchy. It sounds promising, especially since it's from a pair of Jane the Virgin writers. However, it's hard to imagine any show living up to the sisterly love and weekly butt-kicking the Halliwell sisters got up to in the original. There's definitely room for these two shows to coexist, but before the new Charmed episodes arrive, you owe it to yourself to revisit the adventures of Prue, Piper, Phoebe, and Paige. Happily, watching the original Charmed is easy, thanks to the internet, but be warned: if you currently aren't subscribed to Netflix, then the process could be costly.

Rose McGowan on Harvey Weinstein, Ben Affleck, and Hollywood’s ‘Rape Factory’

Imagine a punk-rock variation on feminist theorist Laura Mulvey, speeding through a patriarchal kingdom and howling truths to the people. That’s Rose McGowan, who’s been sandblasting her way through the promotional circuit this week to promote her memoir, “Brave,” and the E! series “Citizen Rose.” Once written off as a shrill loon, she’s developed a homegrown culture jamming, rejecting conventional etiquette in a quest to destabilize masculine conventions.

“I use language to pierce the brain,” she said. “If I spoke like everybody else spoke, it would just dull everything. I might just know what I’m talking about.”

McGowan comes to her current role after a lifetime of experience. She spent the first stage of her acting career contending with performances that restricted her potential and simmered with silent rage against the misogynistic industry that put her on the map. She survived childhood in the Child of God cult,
