The CW presents its 2017-18 primetime schedule to advertisers, affiliates, and national media today at the New York City Center in New York City, with the multi-platinum, multi-Grammy Award-winning rock band Muse opening the show with the worldwide debut performance of their new single, "Dig Down".

The Dynasty remake will put a fresh twist on the show for a new generation of viewers, CW executives said.

"To us it was a no-brainer", he told a teleconference.

At its upfront, Rob Tuck, CW's EVP of national ad sales, and Mark Pedowitz, CW president, emphasized CW's broad appeal across platforms, particularly on digital, due mainly to the network's appeal among younger viewers.

Dame Joan Collins and Linda Evans starred in the 1980s series as duelling divas Alexis and Krystle, who clashed in a series of memorable catfights. Other original co-stars included Diahann Carroll and Heather Locklear.

At midseason, the CW has the one-hour comedy "Life Sentence", with Lucy Hale as a cancer survivor, and a DC Comics adaptation, "Black Lightning", starring Cress Williams.

The outcome of United's Europa League final in Stockholm next week is also likely to play a role in De Gea's decision-making. Paul Pogba will also be out for the second match in a row on compassionate leave following the death of his father.

On Tuesday night, Legends of Tomorrow will settle into the 9 p.m. ET time slot on a now permanent basis - a time slot the show moved to at the end of Season 2 after spending most of its time on Thursdays.

Not Returning: Frequency, No Tomorrow, Reign, and The Vampire Diaries.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend returns to Friday nights, though now at 8 p.m.

Pedowitz boasted of the CW's superhero shows, including "Supergirl" and "The Flash", and a fall crossover event that has become an annual ratings draw.

I'm going to be honest with you, never did I predict that The CW's fall schedule would be the schedule with the most scheduling changes among the various broadcast networks. They included several "Dynasty"-type reboots, among them a new "Roseanne" and "S.W.A.T".
