Other new dramas, to be rolled out beginning in early October, include:
“Emily Owens, M.D.,” starring Mamie Gummer, who last played a doctor on “Off the Map,” as a newly minted physician who discovers that hospitals are just like high school. (Did she never see “Grey’s Anatomy”?) The CW’s pairing that with another young-woman-doctor show, “Hart of Dixie,” on Tuesdays.
“Arrow,” a comic-book adaptation from Greg Berlanti (“Eli Stone”) starring Steven Amell as Oliver Queen, a billionaire playboy who undergoes some significant, comic-book-like changes after being shipwrecked and stranded on an island. It will be partnered, naturally, with “Supernatural” on Wednesdays.
“Beauty and the Beast,” starring “Smallville’s” Kristin Kreuk as a homicide detective who has a complicated relationship with a doctor (Jay Ryan) who saved her from killers as a child but who, like the Hulk, can’t afford to get angry, lest Bad Things Happen. That will follow “The Vampire Diaries” on Thursdays.
Also for midseason but not yet scheduled: “Cult,” a show about an investigative reporter who’s forced to take his brother’s paranoid obsession with a TV show seriously after his brother disappears and the show itself seems somehow to be involved. (Maybe this is why networks have lately seen their viewers disappearing?)
Returning: “90210,” “Gossip Girl” (final, shortened season), “Hart of Dixie,” “Supernatural,” “The Vampire Diaries,” “Nikita,” “Supernatural,” and “America’s Next Top Model.”
Outta here: “One Tree Hill,” “Ringer,” “The Secret Circle,” “L.A. Complex” and “H8Rs.” n
