What is the CW TV channel?
The CW Television Network (commonly referred to as simply The CW) is an American English-language commercial broadcast television network owned by The CW Network, LLC, a limited liability joint venture between the CBS Entertainment Group unit of ViacomCBS, the former majority owner of The WB, and the Warner Bros. Entertainment unit of WarnerMedia, the former majority owner of The WB. The network’s name is an acronym of the first letters of its two parent firms at the time of its inception: “C” for CBS and “W” for Warner Bros. Entertainment.
After its two predecessors, UPN and The WB, terminated independent operations on September 15 and 17, 2006, The CW Television Network debuted on September 18, 2006. Reruns and launch-related specials dominated The CW’s first two nights of programming, which aired on September 18 and 19, 2006. The CW officially launched on September 20, 2006, with the two-hour premiere of America’s Next Top Model’s seventh season. The network’s programming selection was designed to attract mostly to women between the ages of 18 and 34 at first, but beginning in 2011, the network began to include more programs that appealed to men. The CW’s audience is 50 percent male and 50 percent female as of August 2017. The network now airs programming seven days a week, with primetime programming weekly and a Saturday morning live-action instructional programming block called One Magnificent Morning produced by Litton Entertainment.

The television stations that air CW Network programming have no control over the programs, their durations, or whether or not they are renewed or canceled.
A program may be canceled for a variety of reasons.
The most common cause is that the show received low ratings across the country.
Other considerations could include the performers or producers’ desire to move on to new projects and no longer wish to work on the show.
Making a show, especially one with elaborate effects and high actor fees, could potentially be too expensive.
If advertisers are unwilling to purchase ad time, there may not be enough money to cover the program’s initial costs.
