Scheduling Changes Announced for NBC and The CW
NBC is turning its Tuesday night programming upside down by putting The Singing Bee on first at 8pm, followed by a 90-minute episode of The Biggest Loser on at 8:30pm.

The Biggest Loser, which began its fourth season on September 11, will have two two-hour episodes beginning at 8pm on September 18 and 25. The following week, The Singing Bee will premiere on Tuesday, October 2 at 8pm.

Originally, the network had scheduled The Singing Bee to follow The Biggest Loser at 9:30pm. NBC did not give any reason for the schedule change.

Meanwhile, other changes are occurring on Sunday nights over at The CW. Last season, The CW aired encore editions of its entire Monday night comedy lineup on Sundays beginning at 5pm. However, this year, only Girlfriends and The Game will make second appearances on Sundays.

Sundays are the new Wednesdays on The CW as well. Fans who are having a difficult time deciding what to watch on jam-packed Wednesday nights can catch encores of both Gossip Girl and America's Next Top Model on Sundays evenings instead, Gossip Girl at 6pm and America's Next Top Model after newcomer Life Is Wild, which airs at 8pm. The CW is also offering CW Now and Online Nation to round out its Sunday nights.

The CW schedule goes as follows:

5:00pm - Girlfriends (encore)
5:30pm - The Game (encore)
6:00pm - Gossip Girl (encore)
7:00pm - CW Now
7:30pm - Online Nation
8:00pm - Life Is Wild
9:00pm - America's Next Top Model (encore)

CW Now is a news and entertainment program that strives to be the ultimate source for all things hip and happening for today's young adults. Tune in to find out what the current trends that appeal to what the network dubs "The CW Generation." Each episode will highlight the current buzz relating to fashion, music and hotspots.

Online Nation scours the internet every week for the best and funniest websites and brings them to the TV screen.
