Will "Pushing Daisies" Soon Be *Ahem* ...

...Pushing Daisies? / Seth Freilich

Trade News | November 10, 2008 | Comments ()


Word is slowly spreading around the net that ABC’s “Pushing Daisies” is not long for this world. At this point, it’s nothing more than rumors and hearsay, but the feeling is that the critically-adored but ratings-troubled show may not get a full season pickup, which would be the quietest way of canceling it. And adding fuel to that fire, the show’s creator Bryan Fuller has said that, if the show doesn’t get a back-nine pickup in January, he’s ready to jump ship and return to his former “Heroes” stomping ground.

Now I’m purely speculating here, but I wonder if Fuller didn’t put this out there in an attempt to force ABC’s hand. Fuller is a critical darling, and even though “Daisies” isn’t getting great ratings, ABC may not want the egg on its face that would result if Fuller went to NBC and helped them fix their sinking “Heroes” franchise. So if the show has some fans at the network who are fighting for its survival, maybe this will be enough to get it over the hump with a full order. If not, ah well, it was a fun little run.
