‘iZombie,’ ‘Messengers’ Get Premiere Dates As CW Sets Midseason Schedule

CW’s Tuesday will be a comic-book-themed night in midseason when Rob ThomasiZombie makes its debut March 17 following breakout freshman The Flash at 8 PM. iZombie will displace veteran Supernatural, which will be on the move yet again, to the post-Arrow Wednesday 9 PM slot starting March 18, following the second-season finale of The 100 on March 11. (The 100 is designed for limited runs; its second season consists of 16 episodes.)

Apocalyptic new drama The Messengers got a tough draw – set to air on Fridays at 9 PM beginning April 10. It will follow an alternative/unscripted comedy block consisting of new series Cedric’s Barber Battle at 8 PM and returning improv comedy Whose Line Is It Anyway?

The Cedric the Entertainer-hosted Barber Battle, featuring top barbers going head-to-head in an unfiltered, no-holds-barred arena, will debut April 10, followed by the season opener of Whose Line.
