Veronica Mars (From Ausiello @ TVGuide - It's entirely possible that the CW will delay a decision on Mars' fate until after Thursday's upfront. Contractually, the net has until June 15 to reach a verdict, and the extra time would allow Rob Thomas to produce an actual script for Veronica in the FBI. That's one scenario. The other scenario is that the show is dead. One thing is certain: VM will not be on the schedule presented to advertisers on Thursday morning.)
