Pushing Daisies, Dirty Sexy Money and Eli Stone Axed
Source: The Hollywood Reporter November 20, 2008


ABC made numerous midseason programming announcements Thursday, including ordering more episodes of "Life on Mars" and deciding against picking up "Pushing Daisies," "Dirty Sexy Money" and "Eli Stone" for a full season, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The network informed producers of "Daisies," "Money" and "Stone" that no additional hours will be ordered at this time. The network left the door open for ordering episodes in the future, though that is considered unlikely.

The trio remain on the schedule for next week, and "Money" and "Stone" will finish their current production order (on their 12th and 13th episodes, respectively). "Daisies" has finished shooting.

Starting on Dec. 11, ABC will put "Mars" on hiatus and move "Private Practice" into its time period, giving the medical drama a "Grey's Anatomy" lead-in. "Practice" will air in repeats until it returns to originals Jan. 8.

"Mars" will return at 10 p.m. Jan. 28, airing after "Lost," which premieres the previous week.

"Scrubs" will have its ABC premiere at 9 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 6. ABC will air an hour of back-to-back episodes for two weeks, then "Scrubs" will settle in as a single half-hour at 9:30 p.m.

That's too bad. I thought Pushing Daisies was one of the most enjoyable and entertaining shows to come out in quite a while. I actually just finished watching Season 1 on BD. My wife will be sad to hear this.

Eli Stone was a good show. I think I'm just going to stop watching new shows from now on.........starting from today.

I wasn't tuning in regularly, but if I happened to find it on, it kept me watching - it was a pretty good little show - that's a shame.

Oh well, all I can think is that Pushing Daisies fans' loss is the Heroes fans' gain - might have a good chance of righting itself.

NNNNOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

Are the major networks trying to get me to stop watching TV? Cause that's what they are doing. I absolutely love Pushing Daisies. Oh well, guess I'll just have to get the Blu-rays (which I was plannning to do already, just need more money), and just watch the episodes over and over. Sad day.

Pushing Daisies was very original compared to the cookie cutter crime dramas out there now. If it does get axed, I will miss it.

I didn't think Pushing Daisies would last that long, but I was hoping they would give them 22 episodes this season to wrap up any loose ends.

In the review in here, the audio isn't Dolby TrueHD as listed on the box. I hope this is an error that Warners will correct.

I would bet that they'll hold back a couple of episodes to make sure people buy it when it gets on Blu-ray.
