Pushing Daisies is now pushing up the figurative daisies

Bad news everyone. Pushing Daisies has been cancelled. It's sad news to be sure but it's not entirely unexpected. Bryan Fuller has a bit of a track record when it comes to shows being cancelled. Wonderfalls got one season (technically it just got four episodes before cancellation but you know what I mean), Dead Like Me got two seasons. I was kind of hoping that Pushing Daisies might get three seasons before cancellation. It's a damn shame because PD is one of the best programs on at the moment. Why can't they cancel bad shows like... erm... Life On Mars (USA).

Oh and Dirty Sexy Money also got cancelled and while that is also a shame I don't have any clever things to say about it. I say we declare today to be a national day of mourning for brilliant programs dead before their time.

I'm sorry for your loss :( I'm mourning Dirty Sexy Money but only because I love looking at Peter Krause and I want to know who the murdered was. The rest of the show, meh, I can do without. Hopefully they still have time/haven't wrapped production yet and can do a proper ending. What is the status with Daisies? How many episodes have aired?

Unfortunately despite only having aired six episodes thus far production has finished and according to Bryan Fuller, the cursed creator of Pushing Daisies, it ends on a huge cliffhanger.

Personally after last week's episode I'm thinking it's a pretty safe bet that Simon murdered Dutch. Peter Krause is awesome though. I loved him in Six Feet Under and he's the main reason I started watching Dirty Sexy Money.

That's too bad, ABC should allow them to film one more episode. I know, that's not how the business world works but they seem to not care about upsetting fans at all...the people who they rely on. Meh, whatever, now I'll only be watching ABC for Lost.

Yeah, that's a good point about Simon. They really turned him from bad guy to really evil guy in that episode.

I know what you mean. Ultimately they have to do what's best for their company. Cancel the shows that aren't working or whatever but they could at least give enough notice that the show can wrap everything up. That way the fans probably still won't be happy but at least it gets concluded properly.

Exactly. I'm glad we can see that, I'm not sure why they can't!
