The networks release their fall schedules this week. Good news and bad news abound.

I have just seen some information about the upcoming network fall TV season and I can’t tell you how relieved I am that the new network The CW, a combination of The WB and UPN, brought back Veronica Mars for another season. I can’t stress this enough, WATCH THIS SHOW!!! It is a great show, smart and funny and they answer questions in its finale, not give you more questions to ponder like some other shows are wont to do.

Other news, in shows I don’t care about, Grey’s Anatomy is moving to Thursdays to take on the 800 pound gorilla of CSI. Not sure how this is going to work out. I guess ABC smells or sees blood in the water. ABC also ordered about 6,000 new shows, and I am betting about 2 will stick and they will all suck. Although there's this show called Let’s Rob… which is a show about robbing Mick Jagger starring Donal Logue, I believe. Mick Jagger has agreed to make cameo appearances and it sounds stupid enough to be good. Unfortunately the good shows are the ones that get cancelled first.

Fans of Invasion better enjoy tonight’s season (series?) finale because ABC has cancelled the show. Good riddance I say. You will notice I put a question mark beside series? finale because The CW is apparently interested in picking up the show and installing it in their lineup next fall. It’s like a midnight phone call from the governor to a death row inmate hooked in the chair.

Shows I like, Crossing Jordan and Scrubs are returning, but they are not returning in the fall. I guess NBC knows its new shows will stink and they want shows that stink but not as bad as new show stink to take their place. I like Crossing Jordan and Scrubs, but it will not kill me for them to not return. I do find it interesting that Jordan’ s ratings are higher than The Office (love), The Biggest Loser (hate) and Las Vegas (no opinion) and they are all coming back. I also see that the best Law and Order show, Criminal Intent is now on Fridays, I guess NBC is trying to kill it off, slowly.

I haven’t seen Fox’s fall lineup but I am hoping Bones returns because I really like to look at Emily Deschanel. In more bad news, it looks like Travis will have to find a new show to love now that Everwood has been cancelled. May I suggest Veronica Mars?

Whoa, whoa, whoa!
Everwood is cancelled? Are they just going to leave us dangling? What's happening with Bright? Are Amy and Ephraim ever getting back together? Can Jake and Nina split so she can finally hook up with Andy?

Man piccu, you really ruined my Thursday.

Now that Invasion and Alias are gone, I'm pretty much done with any TV that isn't Seinfeld and PTI.

I hope bones comes back too. I like Grey's anatomy and I think it will unhinge CSI. I don't know about everyone else but the CSI glam has gotten a bit boring. Nothing really shocks me anymore with it. Right now I have three or four that i will watch soon.

What about the end of CSI with Grissom and Sarah in a bedroom with robes on? That kind of caught me off guard.

Bones finale turned that show into quite a mystery for next season

Actually, I will watch a Bones tonight. I have to watch the last two episodes of it. I still have a some CSI's left too. What about Criminal Minds? If you haven't been watching it, then you should catch the reruns.
