Top Model, which formerly aired on UPN and ranks as the highest rated show on either of the two merging networks, will premiere its seventh edition with a special two-hour 8-10PM ET/PT premiere. Despite the network change, Top Model will continue to air regularly in its previous Wednesday 8PM ET/PT time period.
Following Top Model 7's premiere, One Tree Hill, a former The WB show, will air in The CW's Wednesday 9PM ET/PT time period beginning September 27.
Veronica Mars, the critically acclaimed but ratings-challenged former UPN show that had previously been given the network's plum post-Top Model slot, will now air on Tuesdays at 9PM ET/PT and serve as the lead-out to Gilmore Girls, one of the former The WB network's strongest female-skewing series. Veronica Mars' third season will premiere October 3.
As part of The CW's staggered two-week fall schedule launch, a special "encore" presentation of Top Model 7's second episode will also air on Sunday, October 1 at 9PM ET/PT.
