Goodbye, WB, hello, CW

The big news in TV land today is that UPN and WB will shut down in the fall, replaced by a single new network, The CW.
For comics fans, the immediate question is the fate of WB’s “Smallville.”
The new network will use programming from the soon-to-be defunct networks and will be a 50-50 partnership between CBS Corp., which owns UPN, and Warner Bros., which owns most of WB. The most popular shows from the old networks will show up on the new - and that should include "Smallville," which has been a bright spot ratings-wise for WB. I wonder, though, whether the end of WB will throw cold water on an Aquaman series that’s being developed by the guys who created “Smallville.”
