Girlfriends, Everybody Hates Chris, and The Game Coming to CW Seed; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of August 15, 2016)

Girlfriends, Everybody Hates Chris and The Game on CW Seed

The CW is turning 10 years old this fall and they will celebrate with three past sitcoms on their digital site CW Seed. Joining CW Seed later this year are three sitcoms: Girlfriends, Everybody Hates Chris and The Game. All three series aired on The CW in 2006 when the network launched (when UPN and The WB merged). Girlfriends aired on UPN for most of its run, from 2000–06, but it aired on The CW for its last 2 seasons from 2006–08. Everybody Hates Chris aired on UPN in the 2005–2006 season and then aired on The CW for the rest of its run from 2006–2009. And The Game premiered in 2006 when The CW formed and aired from 2006-09 before getting canceled, but then BET resurrected the series from 2011-2015. Enjoy all three sitcoms on CW Seed coming very soon!
