If you’ve checked out the latest edition of Bullz-Eye’s TV Power Rankings (and if you haven’t, you need to go check it out right now), then you’ve seen the love we’ve given to “Eli Stone” (at #16) as well as “Dirty Sexy Money” and “Pushing Daisies” (in our Honorable Mention section).
ABC has responded to our praise…by canceling all three series.
Well, okay, they didn’t officially cancel them. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network chose their words carefully and informed the producers of the trio of shows that no additional hours would be ordered at this time, and the series will remain on the schedule for next week. But that sure as hell doesn’t bode well for any of them to score a back nine.
With “Pushing Daises,” we can at least count on Bryan Fuller to finish the saga of his show in comic book form, and if there’s one good thing to come out of the demise of the Piemaker’s adventures, it’s that Fuller can make good on his declaration that he will return to “Heroes.” But that doesn’t mean that we aren’t sad about all three of these shows losing their fight for life.
