“… Hallmark Channel has taken up the slack with TV movies that are consistently among the highest-rated on cable.”
-ADAM BUCKMAN, New York Post

Jane Doe: How to Fire Your Boss
Starring Lea Thompson
World Premiere Original Movie
Saturday, March 8 @ 9/8c



Good Morning.  It’s Tuesday, March 4, 2008, and this is your first early morning briefing.

The CW picked up six series for the 2008-2009 season: America’s Next Top Model for cycles 11 and 12; the freshman drama Gossip Girl; the sixth season of One Tree Hill; the eighth season of Smallville; the fourth season of Everybody Hates Chris; and Supernatural – season #4.  On the heels of that good news came some not-so-good news. The CW will restructure some of its programming departments, eliminating its comedy department, and merging its drama and current programming departments.  Alternative programming will remain unchanged. The restructure results in layoffs of approx 25-30 people.

Discovery Health: Deliver Me at 10p
Travel Channel: Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern at 10p
