Veronica Mars News
Well, those of us in Nashville who were rightfully pissed that UPN30 was pre-empting tonight's new Veronica Mars for a crappy basketball game (seriously: Kentucky vs Georgia...who the hell cares?!?) can put the torches and pitchforks away for the moment.
Seems that UPN has pulled all the remaining new Veronica Mars episodes for February and shuffled them off to March when America's Next Top Model returns as a better lead-in for the show. Apparently Veronica was getting pummelled in the ratings (probably not helped by the jerks at UPN stations across the country pre-empting the show for stupid basketball games...sorry, if it's not UT, I just don't care!) and UPN wanted to give the show a chance to show off its greatness with new episodes.
I'm going to take this as slightly good news that the network wants fans to see the new episodes and keep up on the continuing season-long mystery arc. I also take it as a bit of a bad sign that Veronica is not holding onto the solid ratings it had earlier this year. I hope it rebounds so we get season three....otherwise, I'm rioting in the streets.
Tonight's new episode has been replaced with a repeat of "Rat Saw God" which features a cameo by Buffy creator and Veronica fan, Joss Whedon.
Also in other CW/Joss Whedon news. The rumor flying around the Net that the CW was going to revive Firefly has been debunked for how. Joss Whedon himself says he's not been contacted about it, so any speculation that the series will return is just that--speculation.
No, there haven't been any overtures from the CW as regards a SereniFly spin-off. I haven't even heard the orchestra tuning up.Should Firefly return, you can bet your bottom dollar I will be the first to celebrate and report it here...
