I can't be even slightly tactful about this any more, you have GOT to be kidding me

I’ve learned that Black Lightning, the high-profile drama based on the DC character, which had a big production commitment at Fox, is on the move and likely to land at the CW. The project comes from Greg Berlanti, king of the CW’s DC universe...I hear Fox brass ultimately decided that the superhero show was not a good fit into its already crowded genre drama space that includes the DC/WBTV series Gotham and Lucifer

(Article is found on deadline, but won't let me link because of 'spam patterns being detected')

Nothing against this show in particular, but it's starting to look like every single 8pm timeslot on the CW is going to be DC shows from Greg Berlanti next year! (And that's not including Riverdale). Meanwhile their other shows orders are being drastically cut, and we've got to wait until April for iZombie :(

Enough already! If they're going to have 5 out of 10 hours devoted to superhero shows with very similar formulas, can they at least *consider* expanding to the same three hours per night as the other networks?! I wouldn't care as much if they had more space for other genres of shows, but as it is, it's starting to look like they must as well rename the network if Black Lightning goes ahead. Over half of their output is going to be by the same voice next year in that case
