Hope y'all enjoyed Veronica Mars this season, 'cause although UPN renewed the flat-out brilliant detective dramedy, come fall, it's burying the show that is, moving it to Wednesdays at 9 pm/ET opposite Lost. (Groan.) Other upfront revelations from the network that gets no respect: Kevin Hill is out, and two new comedies will join Eve and Cuts on Thursday nights Everybody Hates Chris, about Chris Rock's childhood (with the jokester serving as the narrator) and Love, Inc., with Shannen Doherty as a matchmaker. (Like she'll do any better at it than Alicia Silverstone?) Denise Richards, meanwhile, will star in UPN's only new fall drama, Sex, Lies & Secrets, which sounds so much like Melrose Place, we can already smell the chlorine in the pool. Come midseason, UPN will fill the canceled soap's time slot granted, I'm just guessing here with South Beach, another prime-time sudser, this one produced by J.Lo and starring Vanessa L. Williams.
