The CW's 2009 schedule: new 90210, more Privileged and return of Reaper



'Tis the season for networks to reveal what they're going to do in early 2009, and the CW tipped its Reaper_logo_2 hand today.

The schedules are interesting for two reasons: they are an instant report card on which series have survived and they are proof that this year's TV season won't really kick in until January, when a number of highly anticipated shows return.

For the CW, that means a March return for Reaper, its critically loved show about a slacker who becomes the devil's bounty hunter. Tampa native JoAnna Garcia's Privileged also comes back to new episodes with the rebooted 90210 on Jan. 6. And a new unscripted competition, 13 -- Fear is Real, features a raft of competitors facing their deepest fears.
