The CW has announced its fall line-up and it's… familiar. (The grid at the bottom of this Variety article doesn't exactly pop with new material, does it?) New shows include Surviving The Filthy Rich (previously How To Teach Filthy Rich Girls). It sounds like a natural extension of Gossip Girl just as Stylista sounds like a natural extension of America's Next Top Model. (Think Top Model only set at Elle.) Oh, and then there's 90210, the zip code that summons up nostalgia for sideburns and… wait. Why did we like that show the first time around? Reaper will return at mid-season.

Also: One Tree Hill is still on. As is Smallville. Sometimes the brain's dead but the body doesn't know to lie down, does it?
