UPN & The WB networks merging into The CW

UPN, which is the home of the “South Beach” series, and The WB are merging into one channel called The CW later this year. While a schedule won’t be released until the upfronts in May, the new network is sure to carry such hits as “Gilmore Girls,” “Supernatural” and “Smallville” from WB and “America’s Next Top Model,” “Veronica Mars” and “Everybody Hates Chris” from UPN. With only 13 hours of prime-time programming a week, chances are slim that “South Beach” will make the jump to the new network unless its viewership significantly increases.

    It’s not good news for “South Beach.” Only the most-watched shows will be saved, and “South Beach” is pretty much the least-watched show on both networks.
