The CW has announced Beauty and the Geek's fifth season will premiere on Tuesday, March 11 at 8PM ET/PT.
Beauty and the Geek'sFall 2007 fourth edition represented the first time that the reality series aired during the fall television season and was also the first time it was broadcast in the Tuesdays at 8PM ET/PT time slot.
Beauty and the Geek's Spring 2007 third season -- the first to air on The CW after two season on the now-defunct The WB -- was broadcast in America's Next Top Model's Wednesdays at 8PM ET/PT time period during the hiatus between Top Model's Fall 2006 seventh edition and its Spring 2007 eighth edition.
When Beauty and the Geek 4 was announced as Fall 2007 programming for The CW, it meant the show had to move to the new Tuesday night time period.
Beauty and the Geek fifth-season episodes will serve as the lead-in for the new season of the network's One Tree Hill drama, which will premiere in the Tuesdays at 9PM ET/PT time period on January 8.
In addition, The CW announced Top Model's tenth season will premiere on Wednesday, February 20 at 8PM ET/PT and serve as a lead-in for weekly encore broadcasts of Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious, which will air new episodes in the Mondays at 9PM ET/PT time slot beginning February 18.
Farmer Wants a Wife, a new Outback Jack-like reality dating series that will see if women who live the city-life can find love down on the farm, is missing from The CW's midseason primetime programming schedule. The CW began developing the series last May and originally planned to air it as 2007-2008 midseason programming.
