TV network news

Not a whole lot happening at Cuesta today, so I scanned the news headlines at www.refdesk.com. (Refdesk is a great website with links to all sorts of information. Try it out sometime.) Turns out that two networks, UPN and WB, are merging:

Two small, long-struggling television networks _ UPN and The WB _ will shut down this fall and programming from both will be used to launch a new network aimed mainly at young and minority viewers.
The new network will be called The CW _ "C" for CBS Corp. and "W" for Warner Bros. _ each of which will own half of the new entity and contribute programs, assets and executives to the venture.

The new network will draw on programming from both UPN, whose shows include "Everybody Hates Chris" and "Veronica Mars," as well as from the slate of The WB, which includes "Supernatural," "Smallville" and "Everwood."
