A broadcast network that has been carrying original first-run programming five nights a week will expand that schedule to six nights. The CW announced today that it will include Sunday nights in its prime-time lineup beginning this fall.
Following the launch of the 2018-2019 season in October, the CW will offer 12 hours of prime-time programming weekly, Sunday through Friday, 8-10 p.m. ET/PT.
CW President Mark Pedowitz made the announcement. Overseeing the expansion are Chris Brooks, Executive Vice President, Network Distribution, and Ann Miyagi, Executive Vice President, Business Affairs, who have worked with affiliates to secure clearances across the country, including the Sinclair Broadcast Group, Tribune Broadcasting, CBS Television Stations and Nexstar Media Group.
“By expanding to six nights, The CW is now able to give our fans even more of the series they’re so passionate about,” said Pedowitz. “Broadcasting remains the foundation of our multiplatform approach to bringing our programming to viewers. Over the past seven years, The CW has added more than 80 hours of original scripted programming to its schedule — now that number can continue to climb, as we grow our broadcast lineup and continue to add content on every platform.”
