Veronica Benched

Courtesy The Futon Critic, UPN will be benching Veronica Mars for the next three weeks/sweeps and instead opt to show repeats. The ratings have been pretty dismal without the America's Next Top Model lead in.

Not sure how to read this one. Perhaps it's better for the show to air it's A material at a time when ratings matter a little less, but it is also damaging to those that are still tuning in every week, never knowing when we'll catch a new episode.

With the CW coming later this year, I had always kind of assumed that this would be a flagship show. Perhaps it's in more danger than I had thought.
