CW network cancels 'Veronica Mars'

CW network cancels 'Veronica Mars'

By DAVID BAUDER, AP Television Writer
35 minutes ago


The CW network canceled the cult hit "Veronica Mars" and will try to pick up steam in its second year with series about the snobby rich, transplanted families and a bounty hunter for the devil.


The network, created out of the ashes of the former WB and UPN, had already ended the long-running family dramas "7th Heaven" and "Gilmore Girls." On Thursday the ax fell on "Veronica Mars," which starred Kristen Bell as a wisecracking teenage private eye.


Corporate parents CBS Corp. and Time Warner Inc. had hoped the CW could become a fifth major network by combining the best of its predecessors, but it has often slipped behind Univision in the ratings during a disappointing first year.


The new "Gossip Girl," about a group of prep school teenagers in Manhattan, will be given the biggest push. The CW scheduled it for Wednesdays at 9 p.m. after its top-rated program, "America's Next Top Model."


The CW's only new comedy, "Aliens in America," is about a high school student trying to adjust to a Pakistani exchange student. "Life is Wild" is a drama about a New York City family spending a year at a game reserve in South Africa.


The new drama "Reaper" features one of the CW's oldest new characters: a 21-year-old. His parents sold his soul to the devil and he's assigned to track down evil escapees from hell.


On Sunday nights, the network will debut "The CW Now," an entertainment-oriented newsmagazine for 18-to-34-year-olds. "Online Nation" will talk about what's hot on the Web.


In midseason, the CW will bring on a reality show, "Farmer Wants a Wife," about a country guy choosing among 10 women fed up with big-city prospects.


Fox will also release its fall schedule on Thursday.

Re: CW network cancels 'Veronica Mars'

Thank God it was awful sick of having to change the channel every time it comes on living TV! The Gilmore girls was horrendous too...the actresses were like ironing boards, so stiff...too much starch in american tv today!

Obviously people are still watching many shows on the CW unfortunately Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars have lost viewership. I think both shows have run their course and the new CW schedule has basically confused fans of those shows.

Re: CW network cancels 'Veronica Mars'

I thought they were going to delay the decision on VM for a little bit. Might go to see if other articles can confirm. I wouldn't be surprised though, it's been rumored for the axe for ages.

CW are looking crap without GG and VM.

Re: CW network cancels 'Veronica Mars'

Don't blame to CW when Veronica Mars have lost viewers All networks want good ratings for each show.


Inspiration is for amateurs
