“Oh Sit!” on The CW

Kudos to the evil entertainment industry genius who successfully pitched the “extreme musical chairs” show Oh Sit!” to The CW. Clearly, the man could sell ice to the Inupiaq.

Spell Check

“The Secret Circle” on The CW

To call The CW’s new supernatural soaper “Twilight, but with witches” would be incredibly reductive. It would also be pretty darn accurate. “The Secret Circle” is custom-crafted to lure the same tweens-and-their-undersexed-moms crowd as the Twilight franchise. It’s based on a young-adult fantasy series (just like Twilight). And it’s the perfect companion piece to The CW’s current Thursday night hit, “The Vampire Diaries” (which, you guessed it, is also a supernatural teen romance based on a young-adult book series). That isn’t to say, however, that “The Secret Circle” isn’t rife with guilty pleasures.
