The CW unveils 2011-12 fall schedule

And finally, we have The CW. Today, the fifth broadcast network unveiled a fall schedule that includes pairing Sarah Michelle Gellar’s new drama Ringer with the sudsy 90210 on Tuesdays (the same night Buffy the Vampire Slayer aired on during much of its run) and shoving Nikita to Fridays with Supernatural.

The lineup also introduces Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage’s new medical drama Hart of Dixie on Mondays, pairing the show with their other CW program Gossip Girl. Reality show H8R, where celebrities try to win over their harshest non-fans, is on Wednesdays. And supernatural series The Witch Diaries The Secret Circle airs on Thursdays. One Tree Hill returns midseason. What’s a strong trend in this schedule is that all the new scripted shows are getting supported time periods, with the veterans having to do the heavy lifting to launch the nights.

Here’s your schedule, below (and here’s the schedule for the other four broadcast networks).
