CW's Midseason Schedule Revealed
Tyra Banks, Top Model
America's Next Top Model is returning to the CW for its 14th cycle on March 3.
The question left unanswered by the network, which announced more midseason schedule plans Friday: Which show will fill the post-Model slot?

Top Model will kick off with a two-hour premiere on Wednesday, March 3, at 8/7c, but programming for the 9/8c slot in subsequent weeks has not been scheduled yet.
The Beautiful Life was terminated by the network after two episodes, and the timeslot has since been filled with repeats. Encores of Gossip Girl and Life Unexpected will run on Wednesdays until Model debuts.
The Thursday night dramas The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural will kick off the second half of their seasons Jan. 21, while Smallville returns the following night at 8/9c. 90210 and Melrose Place fans will have to wait a little longer for those shows to return. Original episodes do not start airing until March 9.
