CBS and Warner Bros. announced today that The CW and Hulu have struck a five-year licensing deal to allow the website to stream CW shows on Hulu and Hulu Plus. This encompasses network tentpoles 90210, America’s Next Top Model, Gossip Girl, Supernatural, and The Vampire Diaries, as well as Ringer, Hart of Dixie, The Secret Circle, and Nikita. Under the agreement, up to five in-season episodes will only be featured on Hulu Plus for eight days following the broadcast, at which point they will be available on the ad-supported free Hulu site. “The CW programming is a great example of the kind of in-season content we want to make available,” said Hulu’s SVP of Content Andy Forssell. “Making these shows available on Hulu and Hulu Plus will allow new and existing fans to get their fix of The CW’s great shows anytime and anywhere.”

As you probably know, Isis King — the memorable, self-identified transgender contestant from cycle 11 of America’s Next Top Model — is a part of the cast coming back to be judged by Tyra Banks and Co. for the show’s All-Stars edition premiering Sept. 14 on The CW.
Isis broke ground when she appeared on the show in 2008 because she is transgender — the first such contestant ever on Top Model. (Isis was born a man, but Banks herself paid for Isis’ sexual reassignment surgery, completed in 2009.)
Isis finished Cycle 11 in tenth place, but she could still be a force in the latest outing this fall. EW has your exclusive first look at the promo touting Isis’ return — complete with totally intense eyes, as you can see above — to the competition.

Season finale alert! When to expect goodbye episodes from 'Survivor,' 'Chuck,' and 'Saturday Night Live'
Where did the time ago? It seems like just yesterday that we were anxiously awaiting the start of Lone Star; now we can barely remember that two-timing cad. That’s because it’s season finale time – that heartbreaking period when we bid adieu to nine months of scripted heaven to make way for three months of unscripted hell on the broadcast networks. (Don’t worry, Big Brother: We still adore thee).
Fire up your DVR playlists, kids … here are all the broadcast net finales. READ FULL STORY
The CW just announced early renewals of five shows for next season. Ready?
Gossip Girl, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries and 90210 are all coming back, along with a first-ever all-star edition of America’s Next Top Model.
All will return next fall. None are huge surprises — Vampire Diaries is the network’s biggest hit, Gossip and 90210 are solid-ish and Friday’s Supernatural has helped keep the network strong on TV’s toughest night. Doing an all-star edition of veteran Top Model also makes sense as a way to potentially boost its numbers after 16 cycles. As for the shows that were not renewed… READ FULL STORY
Tyra Banks has gone from super model to super mogul in a short time. Now, Banks is moving into the world of online fashion with her new website, typeF.com, launching on March 15th. “typeF.com to me is a revolutionary type of fashion site,” Banks tells EW. “It’s all about personalization, whereas a lot of sites and fashion magazines tend to tell you, ‘Okay this is the trend. You need to wear it and if you don’t wear it like this, it’s not good.’ Type F does two things: one is we show you the trends but we show you how to wear it or use it in relation to your body type. It’s all about personalization, personalization, personalization!” Visitors enter all their body details, from the shape of their eyes to the length of their hair, and then are given tips and info that directly relates to their body type. Banks also will be appearing in a weekly web series, Fa-Fa-Fa-Fashion, alongside her America’s Next Top Model judge — and Vogue editor — Andre Leon Talley. EW talked to Banks about the new site, her new YA book series, and plans for future ANTM cycles. Plus, we have an exclusive sneak peak of the first Fa-Fa-Fa-Fashion installment. READ FULL STORY
