Fate is still unknown for 'Smallville', 'Melrose Place', 'Life Unexpected', and 'One Tree Hill' but not all of them are necessarily in danger of being canceled.

The CW has laid down the early verdict and five shows are confirmed to be back in Fall 2010. These renewed shows include the expected one, "The Vampire Diaries", which has become the new breakout hit being the network's most-watched show (4.6 million viewers) and the network's number one show among adults 18-34 (2.5/8).

CW also has faith in "90210" which has TV's largest percent increases from DVR playback. The show nearly doubles its women 18-34 live-only ratings once live+7 data is included. The other returning series are "Supernatural", "Gossip Girl" and "America's Next Top Model".

The renewal of "Supernatural" goes in line with creator Eric Kripke's statement during 2009 San Diego Comic Con that the show would probably go beyond the expected five seasons. He, however, would be replaced by Sera Gamble as a showrunner while he works "very closely" to the show.

With the five shows on the safe place, it leaves "Smallville", "Melrose Place", "Life Unexpected", and "One Tree Hill" in the bubble. The CW's president Dawn Ostroff however said that a renewal of "Smallville" is most likely. In the meantime, there was a report earlier this month that "Melrose" may not make it in the chopping block since CW is also reserving a spot for two newbies "Fly Girls" and "High Society" this March.

The network reportedly is also leaning toward a renewal for "Unexpected" but it would like to see a steady rating first before jumping into conclusion. "Hill" meanwhile, allegedly is in danger, and even if it's back, there may be budget or staff cuts.

High Society is just so dumb, and the ratings proves it. The CW needs to bring back "The Beautiful Life". The Beautiful Life had better ratings than High Society so why arent they cancelling High Society???..... Please bring back Ashton Kutcher's The Beautiful Life.

Definitely save One Tree Hill. The CW would be foolish to cancel one of their most stable shows. OTH has survived major character losses, day/time changes, a midseason pickup season 5, and basically ZERO promotion by the network compared to their other shows even though OTH is STILL beating them!!!

ONE TREE HILL must be renewed! It's the only show worth watching on the CW and we deserve a season 8!!
