No more “Pushing Daisies” Until the Fall

A quick email from creator Bryan Fuller confirmed what had been recently reported: We won’t be getting any more new episodes of “Pushing Daisies” until this fall.

Bryan says ABC didn’t think it was wise to put the show up against “American Idol” and I agree. He also says that airing just a handful of episodes before the end of the season won’t do the series any good. Again, we concur.

But I’m going to miss that show something awful. Still, it’s good to know that with the writer’s strike coming to a close, good shows will be able to get back into production for a nice fall return.

As always, we look to tireless reporter Michael Ausiello of TV Guide to give us the low-down on the status of the shows coming back.

But as he says, refresh the page often. Things are changing rapidly.

    Yet another reason to despise that awful show, American Idol.

    So glad to find an update on the web somewhere !!
    I fell in love with Pushing Daisies from the 1st episode and it’s wonderfully quirky & touching “thnk-God-it’s not more reality T.V.” originality! Absolutely will be counting down the days till one more Bubble-Gum princess/Semi-Talented prince is crowned and we can all get back to quality television! Here’s to looking past Spring to back to worthwhile boob-tube watchin’!

    AMAZING SHOW! Fuller is a genius! “Dead Like Me” was one of the best shows ever and now “Pushing Daisies” is a real master piece. I can’t wait until fall! Can we just skip the summer and go right to fall? 🙂
