One is the loneliest number this fall -- while also signifying success for The CW

Basking in unaccustomed critical praise for last fall’s The Flash and Jane the Virgin in addition to midseason’s iZombie, The CW has just one newcomer to offer in the early stages of the upcoming season.

It’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, a comedy-drama starring Rachel Bloom as a transplanted New Yorker who moves West in a “desperate attempt to find love and happiness in that exotic hotbed of romance and adventure -- suburban West Covina CA.” CW publicity materials say she’s only “possibly crazy,” although the title is all in.

Cancellations are Hart of Dixie, Whose Line Is It Anyway? and The Messengers. Two holdovers, Beauty and the Beast and The 100, are due sometime in midseason.

Here is The CW’s night-by-night new fall lineup (the network programs only five nights a week).

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
Jane the Virgin

The Flash


The Vampire Diaries
The Originals

America’s Next Top Model

The CW also has two new midseason series in mind. Here they are.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (drama) -- Venerable Victor Garber reprises his Dr. Martin Stein character from The Flash in a series about a deadly future that must be stopped by an assortment of recruited heroes and villains. Former Prison Break co-stars Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller also are involved.

Containment (drama) -- A “mysterious and deadly epidemic” breaks out in Atlanta, prompting a “vast urban quarantine” that leaves some denizens trapped within. Starring a cast that few will recognize and based on a Belgian series.
