The first two newbies in the CW's fall slate were Broadcast Scheduling 101; spin off your strongest existing brand, and go for pure compatibility. Tonight, the CDub rounds it out with an all-out risk, applying their soapy sensibility to the historical fiction genre with the Mary, Queen of Scots drama Reign. I'm kinda hoping it premieres well as I can see what they're going for with the pairing with The Vampire Diaries. However, TVD hasn't done that well, and most of the buzz around this show seems to concern a racy scene that was taken out of the episode. Doesn't seem like the best viewership draw.
