The CW's Fall 2008 Premieres

The CW looks like a lot of rich people, pretty people and people who want to be pretty rich when it returns this September.

In its third year, The CW is kicking off the 2008-'09 fall season on Monday, Sept. 1 with the return of "Gossip Girl" and "One Tree Hill." That week will also mark the two-hour premieres of the highly anticipated spinoff, "90210" and mainstay "America's Next Top Model" on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.

So far so good.

"Privileged," about a young woman who tutors two spoiled, rich girls will join "90210" the following Tuesday, Sept. 9, while the pretty boy lineup of "Smallville" and "Supernatural" will wait till Thursday, Sept. 18 to make their debuts.

Once October rolls around, sitcoms "Everybody Hates Chris" and "The Game" will move into their new home on Friday, Oct. 3, along with an encore presentation of "ANTM."

By Wednesday, Oct. 29, Tyra Banks' fashion world will expand with the reality competition show "Stylista," in which wannabe fashionistas vie for the chance to be the assistant to Elle magazine's Anne Slowey.

But wait, there's more.

Sundays will be the domain of Media Rights Capital, who will produce four shows for the Sunday programming block. "In Harm's Way," a documentary show about dangerous jobs, will kick off the night on Sunday, Sept. 21 at 7 p.m., leading into the hourlong "Valentine," about a family of Greek gods bringing love to the world, and "Easy Money," a drama about a family of loan sharks led by its matriarch, played by Laurie Metcalf.

On Nov. 2, "In Harm's Way" will shift to half an hour earlier, 6:30 p.m. to allow the Bob Saget-starring sitcom "Surviving Suburbia" to slip in.

Not yet on the schedule are "Reaper," which will return during midseason, and "13 -- Fear Is Real," a reality competition show that dares contestants to face their darkest fears.
