Wow, with the end of the February sweeps period comes the abrupt end to nights filled with new shows. Tonight only FOX and The CW have new programming, unless you count the newsmagazines on the other three. There is a new Dateline NBC, Primetime and 48 Hours Mystery, which you could watch over the course of three hours tonight. I wouldnâ€™t recommend it, but you could. The new show that takes over the Veronica Mars timeslot, Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll, for a few weeks, debuts tonight. I wouldnâ€™t really recommend that either. Especially, if you are a Veronica fan and want to see a fourth season. You donâ€™t want some other lame show coming in and producing better ratings in the same time period.
