Exclusive: Veronica Mars' Boss Headed to CBS?

Veronica Mars isn't even dead, but already the vultures are circling. Reliable sources confirm that CBS has approached Mars' creator extraordinaire Rob Thomas about assuming show-running duties on its just-picked-up fall pilot Viva Laughlin! in the event CW axes VM. Produced by Hugh Jackman, Viva is described as a musical drama about a man who opens a casino in Laughlin, Nev. It goes without saying that this'll all be a moot point if CW picks up VM in the FBI. And last I heard there was still a chance of that happening. Albeit a slim one.In other words, don't you dare give up hope!(BTW, I was kidding about the vultures part. CBS would be very smart to snatch up Thomas should he become available.)
