By Rich Heldenfels Published: July 29, 2013

The "Whose Line" announcement first, then the premiere dates:

The CW will keep the laughs coming, giving its hit improvisational comedy series, WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY?, a second season order of 24 all-new, half-hour episodes, it was announced today by Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW. The premiere date and time for the second season will be announced at a later date.

“It’s clear that viewers are as excited to have ‘Whose Line’ back on the air as we are,” said Pedowitz. “We have wanted to bring comedy back to The CW for a long time, and Aisha, Wayne, Colin and Ryan have brought funny to the network in a big way. We’re very excited to have them back for another season.”

WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? returned to the airwaves with a bang this summer, with its premiere delivering The CW’s most watched show (2.9 million viewers) in its time period (Tuesday, 8 p.m.) in nearly five years, and was the network’s most watched unscripted series premiere in six years. ....

 The CW Network has shifted some premiere dates of its 2013 fall season schedule, allowing for additional exposure and time to launch. The series premiere of THE ORIGINALS will now debut on a special night and time on Thursday, October 3, 9:00-10:00 p.m. ET, the network announced today. THE ORIGINALS series premiere will follow the season premiere of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, which is bowing one week earlier than previously announced, Thursday, October 3, 8:00-9:00 p.m. ET, giving THE ORIGINALS the additional exposure of premiering behind the network’s highest-rated series.

The following week, THE ORIGINALS will then move to its regularly scheduled night and time Tuesday, October 8, 8:00-9:00 p.m. ET, followed by the 9th season premiere of SUPERNATURAL, 9:00-10:00 P.M. ET, a week earlier than previously announced. An encore of THE ORIGINALS second episode will air Thursday, October 10, 9:00-10:00 p.m. ET, again following an original episode of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES.
