The CW is the last of the networks to present its upfront presentation and ahead of their turn today, the network has unveiled its fall schedule which consists of a few shows shifting nights.

The Flash and its strong spinoff Legends of Tomorrow will remain on Tuesdays, with every other night seeing at least a few changes. Monday anchor Supergirl will now lead into freshman war drama, Valor, pushing  Jane the Virgin to Fridays — where it will once again air alongside soft-rated critical favorite Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.

The biggest shift is likely Wednesday night, where Riverdale will now open at 8 p.m. and serve as a launch pad for the network’s Dynasty reboot. Thematically, it makes sense as it seems the network wants to tap into its soapy roots once again and bring back something similar to their Gossip Girl days.

Since the CW has the briefest of the broadcast schedules, that leaves only Thursday. Supernatural, unmoved, will now lead into Arrow which is surprising since Arrow used to hold down Wednesday nights and be the lead in to boost new shows and now it’s being the lead in by a show that has been on much longer.

Freshmen on deck for midseason include Life Sentence and another DC comics effort in Black Lightning. The other renewals, such as The 100, IZombie & The Originals are slated for midseason as well.
