As the television industry converges on Manhattan to woo advertisers, we'll give you the latest on new shows, renewals and everything in between.

Veronicamars_icv2mekfThis time last year an airplane flew over The CW headquarters with a banner that pleaded with executives to save "Veronica Mars." The detective-soap cult show, starring Kristen Bell, did indeed survive -- only to plummet in the ratings. Is there any hope for a fourth season? There's been plenty of speculation since the network announced that "Gilmore Girls" is coming to an end, leaving open that possibility. And creator Rob Thomas has pitched a storyline that fast-forwards Veronica's life past college and into the FBI Academy. Reached for comment Friday, Thomas said: "I can neither confirm nor deny that we'll get a fourth season. Not because I don't want to. We simply don't know. I can confirm that the network responded positively to the FBI presentation. I went into the meeting with fleeting optimism; I left with cautious optimism." The network isn't talking.
