The CW Television Network, or more casually The CW, is a new television network in the United States set to launch for the 2006-07 television season. It will feature a mixture of programming from both UPN and The WB television networks, which will both cease independent operations on Monday, September 18, 2006. The network will be a joint venture between CBS Corporation, owner of UPN, and Warner Bros. Entertainment, a subsidiary of Time Warner, majority owner of The WB.

The CW will air programming targeted to younger audiences — a demographic that had been targeted by both The WB and UPN. CBS and Warner Bros. hope that by combining their networks' schedules and station lineups, The CW will strengthen into a fifth "major" broadcast network, competing at the same level as ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox — a stature neither UPN nor The WB has been able to achieve. But unlike the "Big Four" broadcast networks, The CW does not appear to have any current plans to offer news or sports programming to their affiliates.

CBS chairman Les Moonves explained that the name of the new network is an amalgamation of the first initials of CBS and Warner Bros. Moonves joked "we couldn't call it the WC for obvious reasons." [1] However, an increasing number of network executives and other insiders have privately expressed displeasure with the "CW" name, and have said there is a possibility that the name will change before the planned September launch. [2] [3] [4] On March 15, Moonves stated that there was “zero chance” the name would change, citing research claiming 48% of the target demographic is already aware of the "CW" name. However, Moonves did reveal that a new logo was being created for CW,[5] one to replace the blue-white rectangular insignia first unveiled at the network's launch announcement. At the network's first upfront presentation--May 18, 2006--the new "cw" logo was unveiled, a green-white insignia with font not unsimilar to the CNN logo.

Stations

The CW will initially be based around 16 The WB stations owned by the Tribune Company (which will be relinquishing its investment in The WB) and 11 UPN stations owned by CBS. These stations combine to reach 48 percent of the United States. The initial 27 stations have signed 10 year affiliation agreements with The CW. It is estimated that the new network will eventually reach 95 percent of the United States. The Tribune Company is a large multimedia corporation based in Chicago, Illinois. ...


In markets where both UPN and The WB affiliates operate, only one station will become a CW affiliate. Executives are on record as preferring the "strongest" stations among existing The WB and UPN affiliates; however, due to the structure of the deal, the new network must negotiate with individual stations. Hence it is conceivable that, in some markets, the CW affiliate may be a different station than either the existing The WB and UPN stations. In Helena, Montana, i affiliate KMTF will become a CW station. Also, the network has affiliated with some digital broadcast channels that do not yet exist in markets where there was no in-market The WB/UPN affiliate.

On March 1, five affiliates (four WB/one UPN) were the first outside the CBS/Tribune core to sign CW affiliate deals. [6] These were five separate stations from around the country which were expected to become CW affiliates because of strong ratings, though, and until KCWE in Kansas City signed up on March 7, no station whose chances of signing CW deals were contested were affiliated with the network. [7] [8] [9] As of May 18, 2006, 173 stations have become affiliates of the CW, reaching 104.7 million households and covering 95% of the country (the latter two figures excluding the future CW stations in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands).

Most smaller markets - i.e. Nielsen DMAs with rankings of 100 and lower - are served by a locally-branded WB-affiliated cable channel that is part of The WB 100+ Station Group, as well as a UPN affiliate which may be either an over-the-air television station (often at low-power), digital subchannel, or local cable channel, or some combination thereof. Under the new network, a new service titled The CW Plus [10] will serve a similar role to WB 100+. However, as with larger markets, the network's affiliations are determined by negotiation, and those announced so far have been a mixture of existing The WB and UPN affiliates, as well as some stations (or digital subchannels) not presently affiliated with either network.

Before May 2, 2006, the only top-30 markets that had remained without a signed affiliate were Minneapolis-St. Paul, Baltimore, Raleigh-Durham, and Nashville. In each of these markets, the local UPN affiliate is controlled by Fox Television Stations Group or Sinclair Broadcast Group and is already committed to My Network TV, while The WB affiliate is controlled by Sinclair. The CW has reportedly demanded reverse compensation ([11]), which Sinclair has hinted it is unwilling to provide. However, Sinclair announced their remaining WB and independent stations, including the stations in those markets, will officially become CW affiliates.

It will provide 13 hours of prime time programming to the newly affiliated stations, 8–10 p.m. Monday to Friday (all times ET/PT) and 7–10 p.m. on Sunday. Programming will also be provided between 5–7 p.m. Sundays (the Easy View repeat block), 3–5 p.m. weekday afternoons (currently off-network repeats under the Daytime WB banner), and a five-hour Saturday morning animation block (currently known as Kids' WB, to be rebranded as Kids' WB on The CW at the network's launch in September [12]).

Notes about the fall lineup

  • Despite arguably good ratings, it was speculated that Reba could possibly be canceled because its audience didn't fit the demographic the new network wants. However, cancelling the show would break a two-year contract that could cost the network more than $20 million for lost syndication values. At the eleventh hour on Wednesday, May 17, The CW decided to renew the series with a 13 episode order [13].
  • According to the TVGuide.com Entertainment News blog, The CW was reportedly interested in picking up Invasion if ABC decided not to renew the series. The series is produced by Warner Bros. Television which owns 50% of The CW. Although, according to inside sources the CW executives passed on the series after viewing how expensive the show is to produce. It did not end up on the CW's fall schedule and was canceled by ABC as well.

Repercussions of the merger

The launch of The CW has caused the largest single shakeup of U.S. broadcast television since the Fox/New World Communications alliance of 1994 and the subsequent launch of UPN and The WB themselves the following year. While it affects more markets, it is unlikely to cause the same degree of viewer confusion as, it appears, no affiliates of the four major networks will be dropping those affiliations. However, some small-market "Big Four" affiliates have signed up to carry The CW via digital subchannels. New World Communications was a major television production company and television station owner in the United States from the late 1980s to the mid-1990s. ... This is a list of television-related events in 1994. ...


In those media markets where there were separate The WB and UPN stations, one local station was left out in the merger, and became an independent station, unless it has chosen to affiliate with My Network TV. In some of the smallest markets only one network is present, or both networks' programming are found on a single station, in which case the transition should be relatively straightforward, but results so far have shown this is not guaranteed. In other cases, excluding markets served by the Tribune and CBS stations, the affiliation is likely be determined by negotiation. An independent station is a television station that is not affiliated with any network. ... My Network TV is an upcoming television network in the United States, owned by Rupert Murdochs News Corporation, which is scheduled to launch on Tuesday, September 5, 2006. ...


It became clear that the Fox Television Stations Group, which purchased several UPN affiliates from Chris-Craft Industries (ownership partner of UPN with Paramount Pictures/Viacom from 1995-2000) in 2002, was impacted. Its UPN affiliates in New York (WWOR), Los Angeles (KCOP), Chicago (WPWR), Houston (KTXA) and Washington, D.C. (WDCA) would not be affiliated with The CW, and Fox made it clear it would not even seek the affiliation for its other stations in markets such as Minneapolis (WFTC), Orlando (WRBW), and Phoenix (KUTP) as the existing The WB affiliates have signed on in those three markets.

On February 22, 2006, Fox announced that it was starting My Network TV, a programming service meant to fill the two nightly prime time hours that will open on its UPN-affiliated stations after the start of CW.

Why does this have to happen?

I dont understand why this has to happen. The WB in my book has offered a great selection of show to watch and from what I could tell the station was doing well. Now UPN on the other hand has nothing to lose in this, there programming is poor, but why are the UPN shows getting better treatment? Alot of top notch programming from the WB is going off to make room for UPN's supposed best of the best programing. How can that be? Sure they got top model and smack down but how many people actually watch those show any more? What about Veronica Mars? Veronica Mars is more than likely the poorest rated show on the network and yet they keep it on and they dump a show like Everwood. Does any of this make since to you? If you are new and havent heard any of this just go to the cw website and see who is getting the raw deal in this merger. Look at the line up and see who is getting the better treatment. Oh and if you didnt already know the head of programming is from UPN. So people lets unite and save our show.
