On Tuesday, September 13, the graduates from 90210's West Beverly High move over to Tuesday nights at 8:00 p.m. ET. Following it will be the new drama Ringer (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET), starring Sarah Michelle Gellar as a woman on the run who assumes her twin sister’s identity, only to discover that her sister's life is just as complicated and dangerous as the one she's trying to escape. The next night, Wednesday, September 14, The CW's new reality series H8R, hosted by Mario Lopez, makes its debut at 8:00 p.m. ET, bringing celebrities face-to-face with the people who love to hate them. Then immediately following that premiere will be the first-ever All-Star cycle of America's Next Top Model staying in its new 9:00 p.m. ET slot.
