Bye Bye Pushing Daisies


I know how many of you enjoy this show, but I'm sad to tell you that after the 13 episodes ordered for this year have been aired, the show will be saying so long. I guess if there was some kind of huge ratings swing then somehow it might be saved, but it is not going to be saved by a letter writing campaign. ABC loves the show but hates the ratings.

AAAAAAAARRRRGGGHHH!!!!!!!!!

Pick it up, Showtime! You know you regretted canceling "Dead Like Me!!!"

My favourite new show of the entire season... Those boneheads in programming didn't promote it very well and are now chopping it? Keep the show, fire the dickwads who didn't do their job.

I hope another network picks it up pronto.

Mooshki said...

Erica, have you watched Wonderfalls? With that list, I think you will LOVE it! :)

I bet if they had a good lead-in show it would do better. The problem is that it's a little to quirky to get a good feel for it in a 30 second ad.

Ratings show that Private Practice gets significantly higher ratings that airs right after it. However D$M which runs afterwards doesn't have much of an advantage over PD.

And nothing's certain yet. I don't think that ABC has anything to fill the slot, really. It'd require a major reshuffle.

Bryan Fuller must be shaking in his sequined boots. This is his 3rd series that hasn't been a success. He really needed this, and by all accounts he's a nice guy. (Who's very creative: Wonderfalls, Dead Like Me are his other two 'fails')

But they will put crap like DWTS and other reality shows....CURSE YOU ABC SHOW PICKERS!!! I hope the next time they go for botox they get a rash in the shape of a daisy!

ARGH!!!! I absolutely LOVE this show, it's one of the best out there. Even kids can watch it. Stupid ABC...they cancel everything good. It won't be long before network TV is nothing but reality and medical shows. Blech.

√Črica said...

mooshki, I´ve been told to watch it, but never really got a chance to do it, I don´t know why!

I kinda feel sorry for Bryan Fuller, his series always seem to not please the audience, thought they are very intelligent and witty...

Mooshki said...

I think it's what DN said - his shows can't be summed up in a sound bite. It's the "feel" and the dialogue that makes them so special.

According to Spoiler TV, the rumor that has been going around about Pushing Daises being cancelled is not true. Read here:

Chatty said...

Oh DP, you may have just saved my day!

J said...

If I had the money and the power, I would hire Bryan Fuller full-time and create my own TV channel so people can enjoy his creations without having to worry about cancellations... this is the (*&#$#$(*& third time I have to go through this.

Amber said...

I love Pushing Daisies, I hope it's just a rumor like dp said. Spoilertv is run by darkufo right?

Mooshki said...

GAH!!!!!!!!! Denise Richards's show was renewed. SO UNFAIR!!!!!

farmgirl said...

SUX

now I will have a shitty Halloween

mngddess said...

Sad - its an interesting show. Maybe another station will pick it up.

Oh, and BTW.......

PHILLIES!!!!! WORLD SERIES CHAMPS!!

Jesse D said...

Ok all you Dead Like Me lovers, movie will be released NEXT summer! And maybe more to come, depending on response!

Mooshki said...

It's about time, Jesse! I feel like I've been waiting for it forever!

jax said...

i don't know if i care or not...the show was decent in the beginning but how long can you go on that plotline? it just seemed to go downhill pretty quick and i love me some Chenowith.

Judi said...

We LOVE PD and hope it stays somewhere on the tube. ITA, Jax. I'll watch KC do just about anything.

Harriet Hellfire said...

I watched about 15 minutes of this show and didn't like it at all. I liked the premise of it but it just didn't work for me. Guess I'm not the only one.

myx n mingle said...

awww...I love Pushing Daisies! There is no other show like it :(

Bad Momma said...

Noooooo!!!! I hope you are wrong. That is one of our favorite shows. Next you'll tell us that Chuck is being canceled.

West End Girl said...

I hope the rumours don't come to fruition. It just wouldn't be fair :'((

Mooshki said...

Bad Momma, bite your tongue! Chuck is my favorite show on tv right now.

okay, i'm still trying to get my "land legs" back, but did somebody just say that we were finally going to see the last bit of "dead like me"?
i mean, how pissy can you be, to take a great show off the air that already has a season IN THE CAN??

and, yes, i'm pissed about pushing daisies, too.
come to think about it, i'm pissed about a lot of stuff.
HI, GUYS, I'M HOME!
screwed up my shoulder really good, so typing is on my list of things not to do... so forgive, plus, the drugs make me not WANT to do anything!
oh. i'm back, guys. *waves* missed y'all!
thanks, enty, for the post on face book, you silly goose!
