THE CW NETWORK ANNOUNCES ITS INAUGURAL 2006-2007 PREMIERE SCHEDULE

July 17, 2006

2006-2007 PREMIERE SCHEDULE

�AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL� LAUNCHES THE NETWORK WITH A SPECIAL TWO-HOUR PREMIERE

July 17, 2006 (Pasadena, CA) - The CW Network announced its inaugural 2006-2007 season premiere schedule today at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour. The new fifth broadcast network, targeting young adults 18-34, will roll-out its premiere season schedule over the course of a two-week period.

Launching with an explosive two-hour premiere, The CW kicks off with its biggest hit, Tyra Banks' AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL on Wednesday, September 20 (8:00-10:00 p.m. ET). Returning for its seventh cycle, the runaway runway hit series gives real people an opportunity to prove that they can make it in the high-stress, high-stakes world of supermodeling to determine who will make the cut as they vie for a professional modeling contract.

The roll-out continues as the internationally popular, totally outrageous FRIDAY NIGHT SMACKDOWN makes its CW debut with all-new, action-packed shows on Friday, September 22 (8:00-10:00 p.m. ET).

The Camdens are back when 7TH HEAVEN, the longest-running family drama in television history, returns for a record-breaking 11th season on Monday, September 25th (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET), followed by the series premiere of RUNAWAY (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET). From executive producer Darren Star (�Sex and the City�), this new drama follows The Raders, a normal middle-class American family on the run, hiding from the legal system that unjustly accused Paul Rader (Donnie Wahlberg) of a terrible and violent crime. Adding to the danger, the real killer is now threatening the lives of the Rader children. As Paul works to protect his loved ones and uncover the evidence that will clear him, he lives with the daily fear that someone will accidentally reveal the family's dark secret, their true identities.

The eclectic mix of everyday folks and loveable lunatics from Stars Hollow returns with new romantic twists and turns, as well as the series' patented snappy dialogue when GILMORE GIRLS premieres its seventh season on Tuesday, September 26 (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET).

Following a new episode of TOP MODEL, ONE TREE HILL(9:00-10:00 p.m. ET)enters its fourth season on Wednesday, September 27, as the group of high school seniors find themselves dealing with life-altering experiences they will never forget.

Clark Kent returns with new enemies and new allies as the Superman mythology deepens when SMALLVILLE premieres on Thursday, September 28 (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET), followed by the Winchester brothers' relentless pursuit of demonic and ghostly evils on SUPERNATURAL (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET).

Kicking off The CW's Sunday Night Comedy Block is the return of Chris Rock's EVERYBODY HATES CHRIS on October 1 (7:00-7:30 p.m. ET), Will and Jada Pinkett Smith's ALL OF US (7:30-8:00 p.m. ET), GIRLFRIENDS (8:00-8:30 p.m. ET) and the series premiere of THE GAME (8:30-9:00 p.m. ET). This new comedy, from the producers of GIRLFRIENDS, takes a comedic behind-the-scenes look at the lives of the wives and girlfriends of the star athletes on an NFL team. AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET) wraps up the night with an encore presentation of the previous week's episode.

The critically acclaimed VERONICA MARS is back on the case, rounding out The CW's historic premiere launch on Tuesday, October 3 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET), as Veronica and her crew head to college for an even more mysterious third season.
