Question: Hey, friend happy nondenominational holiday. Can I have some Veronica Mars scoop?

Answer: And a happy Christmas Hanukkah Chrismukkah Kwanzaa Festivus holidays right backatcha, Ron. Unfortunately, this week's AA is virtually scoop-free on account of the Christmas Hanukkah Chrismukkah Kwanzaa Festivus holidays, so I've got no Mars dish for ya. (I'll have the results of my Veronica Mars Armchair Casting Director challenge in next week's AA.) I did, however, find the time to slap together this abbreviated Christmas Hanukkah Chrismukkah Kwanzaa Festivus holiday edition of AA  featuring my picks for the best and worst shows of the year, plus more gratuitous plugs for the new Ask Ausiello product line and my personal website. Consider it my belated Christmas Hanukkah Chrismukkah Kwanzaa Festivus holiday gift to you. Hey, I guess that means we are exchanging this year!
