Still waiting for word on VeronicaMay 16, 2007 at 3:24 pm | Posted in TV News, Veronica Mars | 2 Comments
Rob Thomas told TV Guide’s Michael Ausiello that there’s no “definitive” word on whether Veronica Mars is canceled. Then he told E! Online’s Kristin Veitch that the network is considering it as a midseason replacement, and has until June 15 to decide. The Hollywood Reporter is also backing off their earlier assertion and says we’ll hear next month. So, we won’t see Veronica Mars on the schedule tomorrow, but we’ve got a few more weeks before the band-aid gets ripped off. Argh.
In other news, Kristen Bell’s chipper voice will narrate the CW’s new series Gossip Girl, which looks pretty good.
I’m still pretty annoyed about this whole thing, though. Honestly, the CW doesn’t know enough about their budget to make a decision on the show now? How will two weeks change things? Are they just waiting for advertiser reactions? I have a sneaking suspicion that they’re holding off on the announcement in order to avoid casting a shadow over their upfront presentation, which is … sneaky and underhanded. They’re going to face tough questions either way, so if this is a PR move, it’s pretty dumb.
Maybe I’ll go to church this week and light a candle for Veronica Mars. Certainly won’t be the most frivolous thing I’ve ever done.
