South Beach is a drama set for mid-season about two best friends leaving the world they know and heading to South Beach; starring Marcus Coloma, Chris Johnson and Vanessa L. Williams.

The Big news is Smackdown moving to Fridays for another block of comedy. Big names coming in as well, in Doherty and Richards and Chris Rock's project. Disappointed that Kevin Hill didn't make it to a 2nd season, but with Mars back, you knew they wouldn't keep both.

Smackdown! on Friday is interesting. I might be more inclined to check that out on Fridays as opposed to being on against CSI currently. On the other hand, you would think that a large chunk of the WWE's demographic would be out on town on Fridays as opposed to plunked down on the couch.

But you'd also think that a large chunk of the WWE's demographic would be watching Survivor, The Apprentice, Joey, Smallville, The OC or anyone of the other Thursday shows.

Just to condense things, there's a SmackDown! moving to Fridays thread already going on over in Wrestling
Even by moving SmackDown!, UPN seems to be keeping it's strategy of counter programming on Thursdays. It's a lineup of comedies. Only NBC has any on it's schedule, and even there, it's Joey (which probably would've been gone without the Friends connection) and Will & Grace (which will be gone after next season, and probably deservingly so.)
I thought I saw early reports with Kevin Hill being back. Must've been mistaken, or they made a last second switch.
If Veronica Mars doesn't make it past two seasons, it's not for the lack of UPN trying.
