CW renews Smallville, One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl and others

The CW made a lot of folks happy this week with its pick-up announcements.

The network is renewing most of its popular shows for next season, including Smallville, One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl, Supernatural, America’s Top Model, and the freshman drama 90210.

Unfortunately, my favorite new show of the season, Privileged, has not received the green light for renewal yet. The network is still deciding its fate. Hello, CW! What are you waiting for? The show rocks.

Also, Reaper, The Game, and Everybody Hates Chris have not been renewed yet either. That doesn’t mean they’ve been cancelled; it just means the network hasn’t decided yet whether it wants them for next season.

Of all the shows renewed, I’m most shocked that One Tree Hill got a pick-up. The show seems to have outlived its original appeal for me. Plus, rumors are swirling that star Chad Michael Murray has not officially committed for the new season. If there is one thing I hate, it’s when shows limp on past their primes, especially without the original cast that made them magical.

I’m also a little stunned that Smallville was renewed, too. Don’t get me wrong; the show is back on track this season, after last year’s debacle, but I’m concerned about what more they can possibly do to Clark Kent, without actually turning him into Superman. He’s already working at The Daily Planet, fighting crime with Green Arrow, and flirting with Lois Lane.
