Veronica Mars' new episode 'The Rapes of Graff' will be shown this Tuesday. TUESDAY. UPN says that the time change was supposed to 'help' its audience get used to the show being on Tuesdays, AGAIN, right after Gilmore Girls.
It's not that I am glad that the show will be following GG, which is what is planned once UPN and WB merge, but hello, has anyone told UPN that GG and VM at this point AREN'T in the same Channel. YET.
The change will make it easier for me to tape and watch GG and VM back to back and tape Bedford Diaries on Wednesdays. However, how far is this bait-and-switch going to go? TV strategists should realize that people are not going to take their crap anymore. TiVo and DVR are getting into households and are here to stay. Maybe they should take a cue and realize that with the plethora of TV channels out there, competition for our attention is important.
Get a clue.
Anyway, here's what you can expect from the next episodes of Veronica Mars:
