CBS has the Eye, NBC has the Peacock... and The CW? It has Jared Padalecki. The Supernatural star has been the one constant on the upstart network going all the way back to the year 2000 and the pilot episode of Gilmore Girls, back when The CW was still The WB. Just two months after Supernatural aired its series finale, Padalecki is back on the network leading a new cast of familiar faces in Walker, a reboot of the '90s Chuck Norris series Walker, Texas Ranger.
