New day. New judges. New contestants. New theme. New viewers?

America's Next Top Model is taking a big risk with so many changes on the college-themed Cycle 19. ANTM ratings have been down, so drastic changes have been made. Will they pay off? Time will tell, but the premiere numbers will give a strong hint.

The new season starts this Friday, August 24 at 8 p.m. on The CW. Will you watch or are you sitting this one out?
