LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- In the fall's biggest schedule revamp yet, The WB announced changes to its Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday programming this afternoon.

Fridays will see the biggest upheaval as beginning October 21, "Twins" will move to 9:30/8:30c following "Reba" with back-to-back episodes of "What I Like About You" leading off the night at 8:00/7:00c. "Living With Fran," the previous 9:30/8:30c time period holder, will head to hiatus.

The same goes for Sunday nights as starting this weekend, repeats of "Supernatural" will take over the 9:00/8:00c hour from "Blue Collar TV," which will also head to hiatus.
