The WB’s Friday night comedies top the list of hot guest stars on The WB in February, highlighted by “Country Music Night” on February 22 when Naomi Judd (Grammy winner with The Judds) stirs up the family bliss on “MAYBE IT’S ME,” Deana Carter (platinum album “Did I Shave My Legs For This?”) drops in on “RAISING DAD” and Andy Griggs (hit single “You Won’t Ever Be Lonely”) heats up a bachelor party on “SABRINA.” It’s always country music night on “REBA” with series star and recent People’s Choice Award winner Reba McEntire.

Also on The WB’s top-rated series in February, “7th HEAVEN” addresses teen drinking and the pressures to fit in on February 4. “7th HEAVEN’s” Monday night companion, “ANGEL,” delivers memorable action and drama this February, highlighted by an episode on February 4 written and directed by series co-creator Joss Whedon that sends Angel and the gang to the ballet. The WB’s “New Tuesday” line-up of “GILMORE GIRLS” and “SMALLVILLE” delivers landmark original episodes, including “GILMORE GIRLS” guest star Madchen Amick’s (“Twin Peaks”) arrival in Stars Hollow as Rory’s (Alexis Bledel) dad’s new girlfriend on Tuesday, February 12, followed by a chilling “SMALLVILLE” in which Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum) confronts Clark (Tom Welling) about his secret superpowers. The Wednesday, February 13 episode of “DAWSON’S CREEK” is a gripping thriller when Joey (Katie Holmes) is mugged at gunpoint and the attacker is later struck by a hit-and-run driver. Holmes appears in every minute of this groundbreaking episode and delivers a not-to-be-missed performance. Speaking of suspense, the new Wednesday night mystery drama “GLORY DAYS” promises spine-tingling February episodes with a serial killer on the loose on February 6 and vampire vixens spooking the townsfolk on February 13.
