First Round Cancelations

Pushing Daisies was on the air for one year, one month, two weeks, four days, and eighteen hours when ABC decided not to order any additional season two episodes. This renders the show dead and cancelled. It kind of died last year after the writers strike cut the season down to nine episodes. It was brought back to life for a second season. But now it will stay dead forever. I'm very saddened by this. After LOST, Pushing Daisies is my favorite show on TV right now. To add insult to injury, the 13th and last episode of the season ends with a rather significant cliffhanger which will never be resolved on camera. The creator has said the story will continue in comic book form. This is not satisfactory enough for me. In addition to my beloved Pushing Daises, here are the other shows axed by the networks so far this season.

Does this mean Boston Legal might get another season? It would be weird to cancel that and Eli Stone.

Too bad about Pushing Daisies, but I can see why that happened. There was a little unnecessary tension given that the two lovers couldn't touch. While at first that was an interesting twist, eventually it just became annoying and should have been magically removed.

Same with the dog. That was just sad bordering on animal cruelty.
