reaper-120308Reaper is coming back a couple weeks earlier than expected.  The network announced today that the supernatural drama will return March 3 at 8:00pm, two weeks sooner than originally announced.  With the programming change, 90210 will air after Reaper, a move that will protect that show from the American Idol juggernaut.

What hasn’t changed is that the show will air all 13 ordered episodes straight through without any repeats.  Another change will come to low-rated drama Privileged, which will now conclude on February 24, with less repeats scheduled.

Despite low numbers for both 90210 and Privileged, the two shows actually enjoy the highest percentage of DVR gains across all networks.

The CW Sets March Return for Reaper December 3, 2008 1:49 am

reaper-120308The CW has scheduled the return of the supernatural drama Reaper.  The 13-episode second season will air after 90210 on Tuesday nights starting March 17th.  Privileged is currently running in that time period, but it will have finished its 18-episode run by the time Reaper returns.

If I may say so, 90210 is a very, very odd choice for a lead-in.  Then again, it may end up not mattering one way or the other. We’ll see soon enough I suppose.

Reaper premiered September 25, 2007 with the following ratings: 2.1/3 HH rating/share, 3.28 million viewers and a 1.5/4 rating among adults 18-49, all of which were series highs.

Overall, 18 episodes aired during season one, averaging a 1.7/3 HH rating/share, 2.62 million viewers and a 1.2/3 rating/share among adults 18-49.

Kristin over at E! Online is reporting from her sources that it’s looking “likely” that The CW will renew Reaper.  Because of its low ratings, a renewal for Reaper wasn’t expected: “If you had asked me a week ago, I would have said no, but there have been a few changes, and now it’s looking like it’ll probably get the green light,” reports an insider source.  Krisin also reported that the network will be picking up the new 90210 spinoff.
