(FROM HOLLYWOOD REPORTER) ? The CW has eliminated its comedy division and combined its drama and ”current programming” departments as part of a restructuring plan that also includes laying off some 25-30 employees. The news came on Monday (March 3) just after the network announced the renewals of six series, including Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill. The network has suffered in the ratings this season and thought to have taken a considerable hit during the writers’ strike. Despite the move, the CW remains involved with comedy programming, with Everybody Loves Chris among the six announced renewals and fellow comedy The Game also expected to return. (Hollywood Reporter)
