The CW New Shows

New Drama

Runaway

Premiere: Monday, September 25
Time: 9/8c

About: Donnie Wahlberg is accused of a murder he didn’t commit, so he goes on the run with his family where they hide in Iowa under false identities.

Buzz: Too much of the show tries to skew younger by focusing on the angsty teenage son who misses a girl he left behind and the equally annoying teenage daughter.

New Comedy

The Game

Premiere: Sunday, October 1
Time: 8:30/7:30c

About: Spin-off from Girlfriends about the wives and girlfriends of NFL players adjusting to the lifestyle that comes along with their husband’s job.

Buzz:
There isn’t much buzz. It seems to fit in with the other comedies on CW’s new Sunday-night line-up, but it isn’t a show that is standing out as hilarious.

    Reading about Runaway, it looks like I would be interested in it, but the trailer didn’t win me over. Then reading what the critics had to say about the annoying teens, I think I’ll skip it.
