'Gilmore Girls' and 'Veronica Mars' METRO-Style

So I get on the subway this morning and what do I see in the daily free paper The Metro? A whole little TV section dedicated to Tuesday Night on The CW! Thanks to writer Amber Ray, every commuter opening their paper this morning in Boston, New York, and Philadelphia were give this treat... a quick primer on why you should be watching our favorite ladies! So what are you waiting for America? Christ, get thee to The CW tonight!

The CW's Tuesday lineup is so good you won't have to channel surf.

Tuesday's have become girls night ever since UPN and WB merged and the CW paired the one-two punch of sassy female-led series "Gilmore Girls" and "Veronica Mars." It makes for a smart block of television, except for all the "aerie girls" commentary - imbedded ads for American Eagle that would make a Gilmore cry "Attica!" - during commercial breaks.

Gilmore Girls
Every girl wishes her relationship with her mother could be as close as that of Lorelai and Rory gilmore, best friends with a voracious appetite for junk food and pop culture - the root of so many whip-smart observations in the show's trademark fast-paced dialogue.

Every "Gilmore" fan wishes Lorelai and small town diner owner Luke would just get married already - an event seven seasons in the making that seems doomed since they called off the engagement a few episodes ago. After six seasons under creator Amy Sherman-Palladino's watchful eye, we're still getting used to the less quirky tone set by new producer David Rosenthal this year.

Veronica Mars
Veronica Mars could totally kick your ass. Or at least dig up more dirt on you than you knew you even had buried. A sleuthing high schooler when we were first introduced, Ms. Mars figured out who murdered her best friend and later, why a bus of classmates crashed, in only two season.


Now a freshman at Hearst College, the moonlighting detective is using her dry wit and quick-thinking to stop a serial rapist - the first of three main mysteries to be solved in this darker more mature third season.

  • Sure, kinda sounds like a circle jerk. Sorry had to do it Scooter. yeah, I agree that the "girls night" line did exclude a segment of the viewing public but it was still a good thing to have an article.
