THE WB'S THURSDAY LINE-UP TO KICK INTO GEAR ON OCTOBER 7

Burbank, CA - September 1, 2004

THE WB'S THURSDAY LINE-UP TO KICK INTO GEAR ON OCTOBER 7

"DREW CAREY'S GREEN SCREEN" TO FOLLOW HIT COMEDY, "BLUE COLLAR TV" IN THE 8:00 P.M. ET HOUR; BONUS EPISODES OF "ONE TREE HILL" TO AIR AT 9:00-10:00 P.M. ET

The WB Network has locked in its official Thursday launch to the 2004-2005 broadcast season. On October 7, the network will unveil its new lineup, which kicks off with hit first-year comedy, BLUE COLLAR TV from 8:00-8:30 p.m. ET, followed by the debut of DREW CAREY'S GREEN SCREEN SHOW from 8:30-9:00 p.m. ET and a bonus airing of last season's hit drama ONE TREE HILL from 9:00-10:00 p.m. ET, it was announced today by David Janollari, The WB's President, Entertainment.

"In BLUE COLLAR TV and DREW CAREY'S GREEN SCREEN SHOW, we have a hilarious hour of sketch comedy series with major star power," Mr. Janollari said. "Jeff, Larry and Bill have scored big on Thursdays at 8:00, and Drew Carey proved to be a winner on Thursdays in the past with 'Whose Line Is It Anyway.' It's perfect counter-programming in what is probably the toughest timeslot of the week, and both shows are simply lots of fun."

Before the schedule is locked in, the 8:00-9:00 p.m. ET hour will be occupied by all-BLUE COLLAR TV, all the time. On Thursday, September 9, The WB will air a one-hour BLUE COLLAR TV special. The following three weeks, September 16, 23 and 30, The WB will air back-to-back episodes of BLUE COLLAR TV from 8:00-9:00 p.m. ET.

DREW CAREY'S GREEN SCREEN SHOW will debut the following week, Thursday, October 7, at 8:30-9:00 p.m. ET, coinciding with the first of the 22 new episodes of BLUE COLLAR TV that The WB recently ordered, which will air from 8:00-8:30 p.m. ET.

The 9:00-10:00 p.m. ET hour will be occupied on Thursday, September 9 by "Here's Your Sign," a standup comedy special, featuring BLUE COLLAR TV star Bill Engvall. On Thursday, September 16, the time slot will contain the acclaimed new drama, JACK & BOBBY.
