Network merger

Perennial fifth and sixth placed TV networks UPN and the WB are going to merge into one network.

CBS Corp., owners of UPN, and Warner Bros., owners of the WB, will be partners in the new network, which will be called the CW.

The CW will be broadcast on Tribune-owned stations, which locally includes WEWB (WB 45).

It will be interesting to see what this means for WNYA (UPN Capital Region).

I don’t care which channel it’s on, as long as they keep “Everybody Hates Chris” on the air!

Actually, the CW will be run by execs from both UPN and the WB who say UPN shows “Chris,” “Veronica Mars” and “America’s Next Top Model” along with WB shows “Gilmore Girls” and “Smallville” will be among the programs on the new network next fall.
