CW in Macon

Fans of shows like "Smallville," "Veronica Mars" and "Everybody Hates Chris" that were worried about where to view those programs on the new network, the CW, can rest easy.

Cox Communications announced that the CW — a merger of Warner Bros.' WB and CBS/Paramount's UPN — will debut at 12:01 a.m. on Sept. 18 on WBMN Channel 3, the WB's former home. WGNM, which broadcast UPN in Macon, had already been planning to switch to religious-only programming when the UPN contract ran out in September.

A couple of week's ago, The WB announced it was celebrating the end of its run by re-airing the pilots of some of its most popular series.

I was worried this Spring about the low ratings of "Veronica Mars" but glad the show will be back. It helps that the person who made those decisions, Dawn Ostroff, was a Veronica champion at UPN.

I am very interested in seeing how CW ratings play out for its name shows like Veronica, Smallville, et all because they will now have access to 2 different audiences. Should be exciting to see for these shows.
