The CW announces fall premiere dates

The CW is looking to get a jump on the major broadcast nets, sticking with an early September launch this fall.

C-Dub announced Wednesday morning that the netlet’s fall 2010 season will kick off Wednesday, Sept. 8 with reality staple “America’s Next Top Model,” now in its 15th cycle. Also that night, net bows newcomer “Hellcats.”

The following night, Sept. 9, the CW unleashes its Thursday night sked — including the return of “The Vampire Diaries,” followed by new actioner “Nikita.”

Netlet’s Monday night sked follows on Sept. 13 and Tuesdays return on Sept. 14 — while fans of the CW’s Friday night vets will have to wait until primetime TV’s actual premiere week (Sept. 24).
