I heared a rumor that Firefly has been picked up by UPN on tuesday night at 8pm. It will take Buffy's place Next TV Season. I hope this rumor is true.

you know, this guy might be blowin' smoke up our skirts, but that is the ABSOLUTE BEST idea that I can imagine.

Pick it up now for UPN and start production on the second half of season one... start showing re-runs of the Fox shows in summer 2003 and start up with second new shows in October... run right thru till May with NO RE-RUNS.

Make me a network exec....

Do you have a verifiable source for that rumor?

I have seen rumors posted elsewhere that seem to be just wishful thinking on someone's part or possibly an attempt to sabotage the Save Firefly effort.

Until I hear anything from an official (verifiable) source, I'm continuing with the postcard campaign. I would hope that everyone else would do the same.

Yeah, well, I'll believe it when there's a verifiable source.

Like, say, Joss or Tim.

FIREFLY5, you need to name your sources. Otherwise, your information will be simply labelled as wishful thinking or stating speculation as fact, which, if I may speak for other posters, is NOT COOL. Name your sources, give URL's to these websites you've mentioned, and then we'll all rejoice.

I figured UPN might use FIREFLY against Joss Whedon, by agreeing to pick it up only if he was able to guarantee them another season of BUFFY with Sarah Michelle Gellar.

This person is trolling. How tough is it to post a link? Not very....

You know I thought I read this on tvtome.com. However it’s worth pointing out that the info found there is often , at best, somewhat inaccurate.

Keep Flying.

GOT IT! Brtick is right, TVTome does mention something about it at http://www.tvtome.com/Firefly/ ,stating:
Quote:

According to zapit2it, UPN has been looking into being the new home of firefly. As of right now they are in talks with Joss Whedon. If all goes well it will air the same night as buffy or the Buffy spin-off depending on the fates.


As for what zapit2it is, a google search only returns its reference on the TVTome page. But of course, we all know that they mean zap2it.com.

And as for the quality of the information on TVTome, I would label it as hit or miss. I mean, if you check out their page at http://www.tvtome.com/features/roundup0203.shtml and look at the listing for FireFly under all FOX shows, you'll find that they still have it labelled as "TBD" for To Be Decided, not cancelled.

As TVTome's writers are all volenteers who can just about write anything that they want to, I would say that the definitive "yes" for the UPN move is still a while away.

Not true, guys. At least, not yet.

We're hopeful that UPN will pick it up but that's all it is. Hope. We don't know what's going to happen.

I guarantee to you that, as soon as Tim has some word one way or the other, you'll hear me shouting it from the rooftops. Not to mention on the website.

As much as I'd love love LOVE for this to be true, it's just so much BS. For several reasons: 1) (most important) Buffy hasn't been cancelled yet! 2) UPN will put the Buffy spin-off in the Tuesday night at 8:00 spot (if a spinoff is in the cards), as they've implied in the past 3) Scheduling of *anything* won't happen until the TV convention in July/August.

I really wish this was more than an unsubstantiated rumor, but that's all it is... unsubstantiated rumor. A more viable time slot would be at 9:00 on Tuesdays... I'd have almost have had faith if the rumor was 9:00 instead of 8:00.

Yeah; it's probably bogus. I checked Zap2it.com, and their most recent Firefly article is the "Joss is still shopping for a home" -type thing.

The paper I work at also subscribes to Zap2it's wire service. I checked that, just to be sure -- nada, tostada.
