Veronica lives, Everwood axed

The CW, the network formed by the merging of UPN and The WB, has kept fans of many shows on those respective networks in the dark as to the future of their favorite series. When the upfront presentations begin tomorrow in New York, the network is set to allay some fears and confirm others--but even before the upfronts kick off, the network has come clean on a few of its plans.

Fans of WB drama Everwood knew that chances were slim the show would make it to the new net. They were right. The Treat Williams series was pulled from the schedule in January, but was brought back in March to continued poor ratings. Even show creator Greg Berlanti admitted things were looking grim.

Last week, intrepid fans of UPN's Veronica Mars took to the skies in an effort to keep their cult favorite alive. Maybe it worked, because the CW renewed the teenage detective series and may pair it with Gilmore Girls.

Also making the CW leap is One Tree Hill, the teenage drama starring Chad Michael Murray.

On Friday, executives of the CW pulled a surprise out of their hats and announced a stay of execution for the retiring WB family drama 7th Heaven.

New shows premiering this fall include: The Game, a spin-off of UPN sitcom Girlfriends about football wives; Runaway, starring Donnie Wahlberg as a man wrongly convicted of murder; and Palm Springs, a drama about the titular city from Dawson's Creek creator Kevin Williamson.

The network is also announcing the rest of the shows that made the leap from either UPN or The WB. From UPN comes Girlfriends, Everybody Hates Chris, All of Us, and America's Next Top Model. The WB brings Smallville, Supernatural, Gilmore Girls, and Beauty and the Geek.

Noticeably absent is news of the Aquaman pilot from the creators of Smallville, and the Nick Lachey comedy She Said, He Said. Maybe the network wants to leave some unanswered questions for fans to worry about.

I hate it when shows are cancelled before they have their series finale. I think that they should have atleast brought it back for the last show and made it their series finale, wrapping everything up. But I am very excited that Veronica Mars is still around!!!

All I have to say is there is nothing worth watching on the WB/CW anymore.

If Veronica Mars hadn't been renewed, I would have killed myself.

Well no, not really. But I probably would have gone and cried in the shower.

...Not really that either... still...

I AM SAD TO SEE EVERWOOD GONE. IT WAS A FAMILY DRAMA THAT COULD HAVE REPLACED 7TH HEAVEN. IT HAD ITS RUN AND I HAD COME TO TERMS WITH IT ENDING, BUT EVERWOOD HASN'T HAD ITS RUN. THE NETWORK SHOULD HAVE GIVEN THE SHOW ANOTHER YEAR BEFORE THEY AXED IT. I AM TRULY DISAPPOINTED.

I am so sad to see Everwood go. By far my favorite show on TV, and I think one of the best written. I guess I'll have to find something else to do on Mondays.

I was so relieved to find out that Veronica Mars would be continued. I used to be a huge fan of Everwood, so that's not to say I won't be disappointed that it's being axed. =/

I really hope they can bring back Everwood. I can not believe ANTM would make it and to top it off have an encore as well... Give me a break.

BRING BACK EVERWOOD

Am I the only person that is upset about "Related" not returning? What about "Twins"... these are 2 great shows that seem to have gotten the axe. I am glad about OTH, Smallville and Supernatural though. Bring back Related CW!!!

One main thing that uposet me is that they decided to tell the nshows fates after their finales so if the shows were ending we wouldn't get to see how the cliffhangers played out.

I think that they should have kept everwood considering it is a veteran show and that they decided to keep all of the other veteran shows.Except charmed whisch was ending either way.

The problem with Everwood, and I am the most loyal fan of the show is that it was up against 24 every Monday night! Give it the chance it deserves!

i am very happy that one tree hill is coming back. i watched everwood too and even i have to say that it was getting less interesting than the other seasons were. it's the wb fault for pulling it off for so long to show beauty and the geek and then bringing it back so late in the game for the CW to consider. I feel bad that the show got cancelled but i love one tree hill way more and i think the best shows made it onto the network.

Offcourse they had to renew Veronica Mars, its the best show on TV.

I can't believe that Everwood is being cancled after this season, but 7th Heaven is coming back this is such bull. They say that 7th Heaven had the highest ratings, of cousre because it was suppose to be their LAST SEASON!!! I feel lied too and hopefully in the series finale of Everwood Bright and Hannah should stay together (if they don't I'll be very angry)

I never watched One Tree Hill, so I cant really comment on the show. I was thinking of getting into it. I am upset that Everwood got cancelled, it was one of my favorites. And especially upset that 7th Heaven got renewed! I mean, they had a friggin Series Finale. And its not as good as it once was, so how does it get renewed and Everwood doesn't? Now the only show I watch on the WB is Smallville... unless they are cancelling that as well...

The UPN is a completely ridiculous channel and I can't imagine the demographic who wants to see the 'should be euthanized, but is being kept alive anyhow' 7th Heaven and Wrestling on the same network. No Bedford Diaries? No Everwood? PLEASE.....give it a rest. I won't be watching the CW and I'm sure I'm not alone.

This is so lame. 7th Heaven is getting renewed, and Everwood is getting axed? I can't even compare 7th heaven to Everwood because 7th heaven is sooo horrible and flaw'd and a disgrace to all TV shows, while Everwood is so brilliantly written with a talented cast of actors (who can ACTUALLY act, unlike the 7th Heaven people), and so many loyal fans!! This decision of killing Everwood disgusts me to no end. I've completely given up on TV.

i agree One Tree Hill Has become really dramatic within the last season it is not all like it started out...but once agin what happend to all the urban programing which made UPN successful...they cant possibly forget the people that made them what they are

Huzzah! Veronica Mars is coming back! Now, as long the CW doesn't make the mistake of putting it up against LOST again...

I hate not having an editing option. Of course, the second sentence should read, "I can't believe that its ratings were so bad that an inferior show like One Tree Hill was kept instead."

I've never been a fan of Everwood. However, I can't believe that it's ratings were so bad that an inferior show like One Tree Hill was kept instead. If the network was committed to quality programming, they should have stuck with Veronica Mars and Everwood.

i like everwood but it's a small Sacrifice we're going to have to make to keep great shows like veronica mars, supernatural, girfriends, everybody hates chris, One tree hill and smallville they should have axed All of Us, Beauty and the Geek, and America's next top model,and she said,he said I mean who like nick lachey to act he better quit that and keep his day job, singing, and kept What I like about you.

I simply can't believe that an Aquaman pilot would be considered before a "Gotham" instead of "Smallville" is. NOBODY likes Aquaman and that has to be the dumbest idea for a show ever. Except maybe Thor. Yeah that would be dumber.

LONG LIVE VERONICA MARS!!!

Although I am very relieved to see that my favorite show, "Gilmore Girls", is making the move to CW, I am saddened that "Everwood" did not make the cut. It is also a quality show. I hope they allow it to leave with some closure to plot and characters.

Everwood is cancelled, a terrible shame but that's no reason for people to instantly start bashing other shows like OTH and VM. Or my personal favourite "I won't watch the show that gets its place" GOD...yeah we're all sad about that but not every show can make it. I'm a fan of Everwood myself too but I won't ignore other shows because of its cancellation.

No way!Everwood is being cancelled? But Beauty and the Geek is being saved? Wow! I can not believe Everwood is being cancelled. I'm not a big fan, but still... Anyway, I'm hoping things don't change about Veronica Mars, I really hope it gets a new season.
