Wrapping up its most watched season in seven years, The CW Network presented its 2015-16 broadcast schedule today to advertisers, affiliates and national media at New York City Center in New York City. The indie-pop band Of Monsters and Men kicked off the presentation with a live performance of their latest single "Crystals," and their international hit song "Little Talks." Here's what CW's Mark Pedowitz had to say in a statement.
"This has been a terrific season for The CW, and is a result of a strategy we set in motion a few years ago to broaden out and grow our audience. We had our most watched season, and our highest-rated season among men, in seven years. We launched The CW's most watched series ever with The Flash, and with The Flash and Jane the Virgin, we received more critical acclaim than ever before. The CW is heading into »
The title will be Legends Of Tomorrow, and here’s the official synopsis and cast/crew information:
DC's Legends Of Tomorrow When heroes alone are not enough... the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat - one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known?
A quick review of tonight's "The Flash" coming up just as soon as this is my "Breaking Bad" season 5... Okay, for virtually all the way through, "Tricksters" was a vast improvement over last week's episode. The show had a lot of fun bringing back Mark Hamill from the '90s "Flash" TV show (and even paying homage to his old costume and lair), and I have to admit to laughing at the fan service-y line where they got Hamill to tell Trickster's protege, "I am your father." All the flashbacks involving Eobard Thawne's arrival in our timeline were terrific, from the dazzling super-speed fight between the two Flashes to the realization that there was a real Harrison Wells whose life and face(*) he stole. Barry's conflict over taking Wells' advice versus potentially losing his father was well played by Grant Gustin, and Barry unmasking for his father was just a wonderful moment from all involved. »

Warning: The following contains major spoilers for Tuesday’s The Flash.
Looks can be deceiving.
On Tuesday night’s The Flash, the real Eobard Thawne (as played by The Carrie Diaries‘ Matt Letscher) was revealed during flashbacks to the night of Mama Allen’s murder. Trapped in the past, Eobard studied Dr. Wells, then took over his body to speed up the creation of the particle accelerator that would help him get back to his own time.

It’s Showtime for Katie Holmes!
The Dawson’s Creek alum is joining Ray Donovan‘s upcoming third season in a “major” role, Showtime announced Tuesday.
Holmes will play shrewd and chic businesswoman Paige, the daughter of billionaire producer Andrew Finney (the just-cast Ian McShane), who enlists Ray’s services.
The CW just had the biggest panel of this press tour, with 13 actors from "Arrow" and "The Flash" — Stephen Amell, Grant Gustin, Katie Cassidy, John Barrowman, Colton Haynes, David Ramsey, Tom Cavanagh, Brandon Routh, Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Robbie Amell, Victor Garber and Matt Nable(*) — plus producers Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim. Panels that size — particularly involving two different shows, even if they're linked like these two — are usually unwieldy and leave lots of people sitting silently on stage, but this superheroes and villains panel was lively, had a lot of interplay between the two casts, and almost everyone had at least one good line or moment. (The only exceptions: Colton Haynes and Matt Nable from "Arrow," neither of whom got asked anything.) (*) You'll note Cassidy was the only woman from either show. After the panel, Berlanti admitted to a small group of reporters that he had messed up on that. »
