The CW Fall 2009 Premiere Dates; JustMyShow Interviews Barry Williams, Plus a Saved by the Bell Reunion?

We gave you ABC and Fox's premiere dates, now we have The CW's premiere dates for fall 2009! The CW has set its fall premiere schedule, featuring the debut of three new series, returning series that includes a timeslot flip for the Monday night team of Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill.
But first, The CW's new schedule begins Tuesday, September 8 with the season premiere of sophomore drama 90210 at 8:00 p.m., followed by the series premiere of the updated version of Melrose Place at 9:00 p.m. Then the next day on Wednesday, September 9, Tyra Banks returns with a two-hour premiere of the new season of America's Next Top Model from 8:00-10:00 p.m. The regular Wednesday night lineup begins the following week on September 16 with America's Next Top Model in the 8:00 p.m. hour, followed by the series premiere of the glamorous new drama The Beautiful Life: TBL in the 9:00 p.m. hour. On Thursday, September 10, the new lineup features the premiere of The Vampire Diaries at 8:00 p.m. and the return of fan favorite Supernatural in its normal 9:00 p.m. slot.
The following week, on Monday, September 14, the Monday destination for young women returns with a new twist: One Tree Hill will take over the 8:00 p.m. timeslot, while Gossip Girl moves to the 9:00 p.m. slot, in a switcharoo! To get ready for this, The CW will begin this change this summer starting Monday, July 6.
All of The CW's premieres are before the actual premiere week (Sept. 21-27) except for Smallville. Smallville relocates to its new home on Friday, September 25 at 8:00 p.m. Smallville will be followed by encore episodes of America's Next Top Model at 9:00 p.m. On Fridays, Sept. 11 and 18 will be encores of various dramas. And talk show The Tyra Banks Show will air weekdays on The CW Daytime airing weekdays from 3-5pm with a new episode and a classic episode (though by 2010-2011 season it will only air 3-4pm).
The midseason premiere date for the drama Life UneXpected, which was formerly titled Parental Discretion Advised, will be announced at a later date.
View the press release and discuss these premiere dates.

The one and only Greg Brady himself, Barry Williams is the next guest for the popular web podcast show JustMyShow.com. Yes, our friend Eric (who also writes for Barry on The Greg Brady Project!) is back with an all-new podcast! Barry Williams is known to TV fans of all ages as Greg Brady from the classic ABC series The Brady Bunch. His other TV credits include guest appearances on Mission: Impossible, General Hospital and Three's Company. Williams is the author of the best seller Growing Up Brady and continues to write in his blog, The Greg Brady Project. We also have bonus clips with Barry talking about Adam Brody, Allan Melvin, Brady Bunch Fan Michelle Obama, Brady Props, and The Greg Brady Project.
Plus, there is a full report on Zack Morris' Late Night with Jimmy Fallon appearance and other headlines in this week's "New News About Old Stuff!" If you didn't know Mark-Paul Gosselaar was recently on Fallon's show all dressed up like and in character as his Saved by the Bell character Zach Morris. Fallon is trying to reunite the entire cast for a reunion, and he just about as booked everyone. Watch the other Saved by the Bell reunion updates Fallon did. It's all right, cause I'm Saved by the Bell!
