CW NEWS HIGHLIGHTS
Here's what you need to know from this morning's CW upfront:
* The Gossip Girl spinoff remains marginally alive despite not getting a series pickup for fall. CW president Dawn Ostroff says, "It was the toughest year we've ever had, figuring out what to pick up, because [our pilots] were all really, really good. We do have room for another midseason show. We have some reality, and we'll probably have another scripted drama. We're just going to take a beat and see where we are. In all honesty, I think the Gossip Girl spinoff is the show that we would love to be able to find a place for as the season goes on." (There were no similarly encouraging words about Body Politic with Jason Dohring, Brian Austin Green, Minka Kelly and Gabrielle Union.)
* Like we told you yesterday, the CW schedule will be: Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill on Mondays, 90210 and new show Melrose Place on Tuesdays, America's Next Top Model and new show The Beautiful Life on Wednesdays, new show Vampire Diaries (can.not.wait.) and Supernatural on Thursdays and Smallville and a Top Model repeat on Fridays.
