UPN Crams Premieres into September

LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) Most entertainment industry participants
consider the Emmys telecast to be the official starting gun for the
new fall season. This year, that gun goes off on Sunday, Sept. 18 and
UPN is taking its parameters to heart.

move to its new night as of Fridy, Sept. 9, while all of the new
series and shows currently on hiatus will wait until the week of the
19th to make their comebacks.

The summer reality series "R U the Girl with T-Boz and Chilli," which
premieres on Wednesday, July 27 will have it's live finale on Tuesday,
Sept. 20 featuring a concert with T-Boz, Chilli and the show's winner.
The rest of UPN's fall premieres are as follows (all times Eastern):
Monday, Sept. 19

8 p.m.: "One on One"

9 p.m.: "Girlfriends"

Wednesday, Sept. 21

8 p.m.: "America's Next Top Model"
9 p.m.: "Veronica Mars"

Thursday, Sept. 22

Tuesday, Sept. 27

8 p.m.: "America's Next Top Model" Encore
9 p.m.: "Sex, Love & Secrets"
And that makes it official. There's no need for UPN to remain on my
Just for that, I'm gonna make you watch "Eve" and "Sex, Love & Secrets" 
on their premiere dates.

Two words:  Veronica Mars.

Otherwise I would, literally, remove channel 9 from the dial.

Of course, once I see how VM is retooled, that may well still happen.
I'm hopeful the network interference will be minimal, but with VM going up
against Lost this fall I fear an early cancelation or massive network
'suggestions' around thanksgiving.
