The CW Announces Premiere Dates for 'Star-Crossed' & 'The 100'; Moves 'Hart of Dixie' & 'The Tomorrow People' to New Nights

The CW had a strong fall - The Originals, Supernatural, Arrow & The Vampire Diaries all are pulling in robust numbers. Now, the network is looking to fix its weaker spots - by announcing the premiere dates for new dramas Star-Crossed and The 100, moving The Tomorrow People and Hart of Dixie to new nights, and the return of summer hit Whose Line Is It Anyway?

The changes will start on Monday, February 17 with the series premiere of Star-Crossed, a human-alien drama starring Aimee Teegarden & Matt Lanter, at 8/7c. briefly replacing current time slot holder Hart of Dixie.

Beauty and the Beast will continue to air at 9/8c. on Mondays until March 10 when it will go on hiatus and return at a later date in the spring. Starting March 17, The Tomorrow People will move out of its cushy post-Arrow time slot to the Monday lineup.

On Wednesday, March 19, The 100 - a futuristic drama starring Eliza Taylor, Henry Ian Cusick and Isaiah Washington - will debut at 9/8c. after a new Arrow.

Lastly, on Friday, March 21, the second season of Whose Line Is It Anyway? will premiere with back-to-back episodes at 8/7c. After the first week, the network will air new episodes at 8/7c. and encores at 8:30/7:30c. - just like they did last summer. Moving to the 9/8c. slot will be Hart of Dixie returning from its month-long hiatus.
